Before we write the content for your website, we need to fully understand what your business provides. The more information we have, the more in-depth and relevant content we can create.

Once we have a sufficient level of information, we can then start to research relevant keywords. We’ll look at their search volume, competition and intent. From this, we’ll group keywords together and check to see if your website has the right information architecture. If additional pages need to be created we’ll let you know.

With the keyword list (and pages created) we can then begin writing the content. Typically we’ll write around 1,000 words per page. This will allow us to provide a good depth of information and broaden the keywords we can target.

As part of the content writing, we’ll ensure headings and internal and external links are included. Page titles, meta description and URLs will be optimised for primary and secondary keywords. All of this should provide the best opportunity to attract the right customers to your website.

Depending on the number of pages to write content, this can take at least two weeks to deliver our first draft.

Content + Local

If you want your business to attract customers from specific locations, we’ll create web page content, map listings and local citations to help optimise your site for local SEO.

We’ll also create the content for the rest of your site. All of this will be informed by our keyword research service.

This can take around three weeks to deliver, depending on the number of pages.

Content + Local + Audit

This package is best advised for businesses who’ve already got a website but realise it’s not generating the right quality and quantity of from natural search.

Before we dive in, like all our packages and work we undertake, we’ll require a full breakdown of what your business provides.

Once we’re ready to go, we’ll undertake a technical SEO audit to ensure there are no issues impacting the crawling, rendering, indexation and ranking of your web pages. Depending on what’s uncovered we’ll either resolve these first or later in the process.

Next, we’ll undertake keyword research to ensure we’re targeting the correct keywords. With this data to hand, we can then begin the content writing, local SEO and on-page optimisation.

Once the technical issues have been resolved and the content is well optimised, we can be confident that your website is now following best practice.

Payment terms – 50% upfront and 50% on completion.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEO?

Search engine optimisation or SEO as it’s commonly known is the practice of enhancing your websites traffic (visibility) for relevant searches on search engines. SEO attracts natural traffic. Used effectively it’s one of the most effective and cheapest marketing channels for your business.

Does SEO work?

Yes! Our SEO services will provide results for your business to increase natural search traffic. We’ll be upfront when we expect results to show.

How much SEO cost?

Services start from £500 and go up to £1,000. We can also offer custom pricing depending on what your requirement may be.

How does SEO work?

To understand how SEO works think of it like a library.

The librarian want to find a book so starts looking. They find a book (your website) and starts going through it to understand what your book is about. This is the first step called crawling.

The librarian buys your book but before it goes on the shelf, they need to catalogue it. This is called indexation.

The third and last part is to decide where the book is stored. Depending on the theme of your book, they store it according to the genre. You want to make sure that the book ends up where customers are most likely to see it. This is a bit like keyword targeting and the essence of how SEO works.

However, it’s a wee bit more complicated than that as there are 200 ranking signals which are constantly evolving.

How long does it take to rank content?

When new content is published, we recommend waiting 3 – 6 months for the rankings to stabilise. From this point we can start tweaking minor things to do see if it has an impact on page rankings.

Can I do SEO myself?

If you have the tools, skills and knowledge then anyone can do SEO. However just like anything in life, it takes time and patience to improve your skills.

How do you improve keyword rankings?

With over 200 ranking signals, there are many ways to improve keyword rankings. These could be across areas such as technical, content, on-page and link building.

How quickly does SEO work?

Depending on how often your site is crawled by search engines, this can take hours or days to start seeing improvement with SEO. The algorithm can also take time to understand what has been changed on a page and where it should rank on search result pages.

Can Google's algorithm updates impact my keyword ranking?

If your site doesn’t follow best practice guidelines, when Google rolls out updates of its algorithm, it can either have a negative and positive impact on your keyword rankings.

That’s why it’s best advised to work with Darroch Digital to ensure your site follows current best practice to protect it against future search algorithm updates.
