Built on top of our WordPress Maintenance Plan

Our SEO plan is built on top of our WordPress Maintenance Plan, which includes:

  • WordPress hosting and maintenance
  • Software upgrades
  • Security and performance
  • SSL
  • ... and more

These strong foundations are the first step in great SEO.

We do not sell our SEO plan without the WordPress Maintenance Plan.

Initial consultation

We'll meet with you face-to-face (or by video conference, if we're long distance) to discuss your SEO needs and understand your business. 

SEO Audit

We'll conduct an initial SEO audit of your site's technical setup, content, backlinks, and other relevant information. We'll let you know what's good, bad, and ugly - and what it'll take to fix it.

Google have indicated they use over 200 factors to influence search engine ranking. Just as a sample, some of the areas we look at include:

  • Technical markup
    Titles and meta tags
    Social metadata microdata
    Keyword analysis
    Thin content
    Duplicate content
    Dead links and redirects
    Site speed
    Mobile responsiveness
    Inbound links from other sites
    Potential penalties or signs of spam

We will suggest a plan to address any issues we discover over the coming months. If you wish to accelerate this work, we can do so on a consulting basis.

Sitemaps and indexing

We make sure you're listed in Google and other search engines' indexes. We make sure your whole site is visible, or that parts that shouldn't be visible aren't. Removing unnecessary parts of your website from the index ensures that the most relevant pages rank better.

Keyword research

We work with you to develop a list of keywords to target. These may be the direct products and services you sell, or may be other terms that your customers are searching for. Our professional keyword research software helps you understand which keywords will bring you most traffic, and we'll recommend what steps to take to rank for each.

Keyword rankings are shown in your dashboard, and in your monthly email reports.ballarat seo - keyword ranking report

On-page content optimisation includes:

  • Titles, headings, and web page copy

  • metadata
  • Social media metadata

Technical SEO improvements

We ensure that your website's technical foundations are SEO-friendly, from SSL (secure website) to page load times to mobile responsiveness. We are experts at modifying the underlying code of your site to make sure it loads quickly and contains all the tags required for optimal SEO.

Technical improvements include (but aren't limited to):

  • SSL

  • Fast load times
  • Fixing dead links and redirects
  • Social media metadata
  • Identification and removal of duplicate content
  • ... and more
Backlink creation

Backlinks from other websites are the most effective way to improve your SEO ranking.

  • business directories
  • local media
  • review sites

  • ... and more

We never use spammy techniques or create inappropriate links that could cause your site to be penalised by Google.

Spam and penalty recovery

If your website has been targeted by spam or received penalties from Google for having spam, malware, or other issues, we can help with cleanup and recovery.

Analytics and reporting

As part of our WordPress Maintenance Plan (required for the SEO plan) we will set up Google Analytics and Google Search Console for your website. If you already have Analytics and/or Search Console we will review the configuration and make sure it's all set up correctly.

We will create a custom SEO dashboard for you to login to at any time. This shows your keyword rankings, backlinks, search engine traffic, conversions and more. Our analytics dashboard clearly demonstrates the value you are getting for your SEO plan.

You will receive an email every month with your key SEO metrics.

We also review your analytics monthly and contact you if we have any concerns or suggestions.
