Why Optimise for Search Engines?
Many people in the UK search online for estate agency services. Most use popular search engines – like Google – and over 90% of them don’t look beyond the first page of results.
Search engines use algorithms to determine which websites show on the first page. Put simply, they measure how relevant web pages are to the search phrase, and how trustworthy or authoritative your website is.
SEO is the process of perfecting the relevance of your web pages to your potential customers, and ever-improving the trustworthiness of your site in the eyes of search engines’ algorithms, to be found at the top of search results and grow website traffic.

2. Keyword Strategy
‘Keywords’ are the search phrases that potential clients are typing into Google, such as “London Estate Agent”, “Letting Agent in Bournemouth”, or “Local Property Valuation”.
Successful SEO depends on selecting the right keywords for your company. Those with the highest search volume, specifically among your target audience, are the most lucrative. Targeting the wrong Keywords on your web pages means missing out on potential new business leads.
We research the Keywords your potential customers are searching for the most. Then we analyse the SEO of your competitors websites, plan how to outdo them, and place your website above theirs. The result is a structured Keyword strategy which guides your ongoing SEO.
3. On-page & Technical Optimisation
Optimising your website pages for the keywords selected in your keyword strategy involves a comprehensive checklist of web design elements and code. This stage is vital to successful SEO, as collectively the items our on-page SEO checklist show the search engines specifically what your pages are about, and which search phrases to show them for.
Our technical SEO checklist contains a detailed list of technical aspects of your website which collectively improve your SEO. They’re different from the on-page factors as they don’t have anything to do with the content on your web pages. Think page loading speeds, secure encrypted connections, website structure and user experience.
4. Off-page SEO & Local Link Building
