If you’re looking for an SEO consultant with a huge amount of experience in both search marketing and WordPress specifically, you’ve come to the right place. Below are the questions you probably have and hopefully, some compelling answers.
Who are you?
I’ll leave that to my About page.
What do you know about WordPress?
I’ve been working on WordPress websites for over 15 years and around half of my clients at any one time use it to power their online presence.
In short, I know what I’m doing.
As well as optimisation, I can upload new content, make design changes, implement new functionality as well as keeping the site secure and up-to-date. All of this indirectly impacts your SEO and a lot of clients find that value-add quite useful.
What do you know about SEO?
More than most people. I’ve been doing it a long time and have worked with plenty of well known brands as well as start-ups and SMEs in every sector imaginable.
If you’d like to understand more about my approach to SEO there’s a lot of information on this page. I can also provide a long list of case studies and references to prove my track record.
How do I start?
If you fill out the form below, I will look at your site and give you a complimentary, jargon-free, completely bespoke report on how to improve your presence on Google. I’ll also be honest about how tough it’s likely to be factoring in the competitiveness of your market and the relative strength of your website.
What happens after the report?
You can ask any follow-ups via email or we can arrange a call/Zoom to discuss the findings.
The report itself will contain indicative costs if you want me to carry out any of the works detailed, so everything is transparent and there’s no pressure to take on services you don’t feel will be beneficial.
Will it be expensive?
I haven’t encountered a client I couldn’t help yet, even if that was simply dispensing some free advice, so I always advise taking the report because it will contain some meaningful actions and give you an idea of costs.
You can spend £50 or £5,000 on SEO so it’s simply a case of outling the work required and costing fairly to see if it’s viable for all parties.
What do you not do?
I don’t hard-sell my services or pester people with hundreds of generic follow-ups emails.
I don’t force people to sign-up for long contracts where they’re handcuffed to my services.
I don’t take on any SEO project if I don’t think it will be beneficial to business.
What are the Benefits of WordPress when it comes to SEO?
WordPress can’t be beaten when it comes to content optimisation. It’s incredibly easy to make the changes required to implement an effective keyword strategy and communicate to Google that a given page is relevant for a given search term.
While you’ll normally want to install a few free add-ons like Yoast SEO to give you a bit more control, WordPress is ready to go as soon as it’s up and running, so all I require is a login to get started.
What are the drawbacks of an SEO campaign on WordPress?
Many developers don’t like WordPress because they think it’s bloated and creates a lot of functionality most people don’t need. It’s also seen as being vulnerable to hackers, malware and spam.
While all of the above is probably true, it’s simplicity makes up for it’s shortcomings and with proper management, the pros far outweigh the cons. If I don’t think WordPress is best-serving your interests I would say, but this is highly unlikely.
How can I verify the works undertaken?
I supply worksheets for all changes made to a website, explain what’s been done and use SEO Moz tools (the most respected name in our sector) to verify it is beneficial to search engine performance.
Most of my insights are driven by data in Google Search Console, so you have the added peace of mind that it’s right from the horses’ mouth.
