Getting your house in order is essential if you’re having visitors round for tea. SEO is no different.

Tech is the most fundamental strand of SEO. It concerns itself with how (or even if!) Google sees your site in terms of size, speed and structure. When Google’s crawlers check out your site, sound technical SEO will make sure they have a proper good time.

A website without top quality content is like a day without sunshine.

In this game, you’ll often hear the phrase “content is king” – when we say it, we’re talking about the stuff that gets your potential customers genuinely excited about your brand and what you’ve got to offer – your products, your services. None of that generic nonsense. Great content should be sensational, informational and educational, but most of all it needs to be persuasive. It needs to convince site visitors that your business is the one.

What do our clients say?

“Our site is a single-page web app, which functions very differently from your typical marketing website platform. This presents a number of unique challenges from an organic performance perspective, but Custard haven’t faltered in being able to provide practical advice on every issue we’ve thrown at them, thanks to their senior team’s roots in enterprise-level web development.

They have even gone beyond their remit as SEOs on many occasions, providing value-adds that we doubt we’d get anywhere else. Custard are a fantastic agency to work with.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEO and how to use it

When it comes to this Manchester digital marketing agency, search engine optimisation (SEO) is one of the most important and effective forms of marketing we can offer. Simply put, SEO is the process of optimising your website or blog so that it ranks higher in search engine results pages (SERPs). When someone types in a query related to the products or services you offer, you want your site to be one of the first results they see. By improving your SEO, you can ensure that more people find your business and learn about what you have to offer.

On-page optimisation is one of the most important aspects of effective SEO. This includes optimising key elements on a web page such as the title, meta description, header tags, images, and content. It’s also important to ensure that a website’s code is clean and efficient so that it can be easily understood by search engine crawlers. Off-page optimisation is another critical factor in SEO. This involves developing high-quality links and brand mentions from other reputable websites to help improve your own site’s authority and ranking.

Does SEO really work?

The short answer is categorically yes, SEO does work. The longer answer is that it depends on how good your SEO skills are and how they fit your wider business strategy. If you’re looking for a short-term boost in traffic, then SEO can help, but direct marketing such as PPC might be a better fit for your needs. If you’re looking for long-term results, then the right SEO strategy can work wonders. There are no guarantees that SEO will work, but with the right agency can beat the odds most of the time. Working with Custard on your organic strategy is of the most cost-effective ways to improve your search engine rankings and drive more traffic.

What does SEO include?

SEO is the process of optimising a website for better visibility in organic search results on platforms such as Google search and Microsoft Search, with the goal of earning higher web traffic levels and more revenue. SEO practitioners use a variety of techniques to improve their site’s rankings, such as  on-page optimisation, link building, and content creation. That’s where our Manchester SEO company comes in. We make it easier for people to find your site through search engines.

How long does it take for SEO to work?

There is no one answer to this question as SEO can take varying amounts of time to work depending on a number of factors, such as the competitiveness of the keyword you are targeting and the current state of your website’s SEO. Depending on the issues & opportunities that we identify for your business, results can take from a few days or weeks, to a few months to materialise. A typical campaign lasts for 6 months, and by the end of that first engagement we’re confident we’ll have you asking for more.

How can an SEO agency help to build your business?

SEO is important for businesses because it is one of the most cost-effective ways to reach a target audience. When a business invests in SEO, it can improve its website’s visibility and organic search results without incurring the per-visitor fees associated with direct forms of digital marketing, such as PPC and social media. Growth is incremental, meaning that over time you see a compounded benefit from the work carried out, offering the possibility of an ever improving CPA over time. Additionally, SEO can help businesses to improve their online reputation and create a strong online presence – just like SMM, so it’s a good thing we’re an expert Manchester social media agency, too!

What does an SEO agency do?

Our lead generation SEO agency will increase your search visibility enabling more organic traffic to be driven to your website, sending more leads or customers to your business.

What to expect from an SEO agency

You should expect an agency which specialises in SEO for marketing to take time to understand your specific needs and objectives. They should carry out thorough research and audits, creating a strategy for success that your business can follow to the letter. They should always be communicative – that’s why we pride ourselves on being a fully transparent Manchester SEO agency.

How to fix SEO issues

SEO, or search engine optimisation, is the process of improving the ranking of a website on search engines. There are many things that you can do to improve your site’s SEO, and fortunately, many of them are not rocket science requiring only quite basic digital skills! Here are a few tips to help get you started:

  1. Make sure your site is easy to navigate. The easier it is for users to find what they're looking for, the better it will rank in search engines.
  2. Use relevant keywords throughout your site. This helps search engines understand what your site is about and rank it accordingly.
  3. Optimize your images. Make sure to include relevant keywords in the filename and sensible alt text to help them show up in search results for the terms that matter to you.
  4. Publish quality content regularly. This is one of the most important factors for SEO. Implement a content calendar, be disciplined, put out the right messaging at the right time to match your target audience’s needs, habits and behavioural patterns.
