SEO Traffic Results

Here’s a few questions you might be asking yourself about SEO


Are keywords important for SEO?

Yes, keywords are important. But not as much as understanding what your customer is actually searching for. It’s also important to structure your web page in a way that maximises traffic opportunities for different searches that your target market is interested in.

What are the Techniques & what are backlinks?

Backlinks are the outcome of a website owner telling their customers or visitors about your website. That’s it.

The techniques to achieving this are wide and varied. But it always boils down to producing excellent work in a way that others find useful.

SEO can be highly technical. But the foundations of the science remains in your ability to get other website owners to reference your work. So that you can acquire customers directly from their referrals.

In doing this you are guaranteed to get a jump up in the search engines.

SEO Agency Manchester

How do I choose an SEO company

The first thing to be mindful of is how business driven your SEO agency are.

Do they talk about improving your rankings to the first page of Google?

Or do they talk about traffic and sales?

You want to be looking for the latter.


Because the truth is, you could be on the front page of Google for an unpopular keyword and it may not even generate traffic to your site.

Even worse…

You could be at the top of Google and be getting lots of traffic but the sales just don’t convert.

The best rankings are the ones that are easy to generate traffic from AND can convert traffic into sales.

Another thing you should look out for is whether the company talks about

  1. Quality
  2. Quantity

As with anything in business you should most definitely be choosing quality over quantity.

For example, Online Growth Guru’s ability to obtain a backlink on the NHS website for one of our clients proved far more effective than trying to register in 1,000 directories that have no meaning to the industry in which they operate.

SEO Company Manchester

Which SEO Company should you Choose?

Your decision will often be based on your gut instinct.

Spread your search far and wide. You don’t necessarily need a company that’s on your doorstep. But it‘s usually better for communication.

It’s not uncommon to have tri-monthly strategy review meetings when undertaking this type of project.

So anywhere outside of a 2 hour drive between yourself and your chosen company could be a hindrance to your progression.


SEO is an important aspect when creating the foundations of a long term digital marketing strategy. You could segregate each part of your digital strategy to individual specialists or have one Digital Marketing agency carry out your full services.

Often we recommend the latter if it’s possible because the key to success is to have everything working in tandem.


SEO stands for search engine optimisation. However, we like to think it as building strong, lasting business relationships with other website owners who are willing to refer your business.

It’s important that you don’t just choose an ‘SEO consultant’ who claims to be a link-builder or get you to the top of page 1 in Google for a single keyword – they probably won’t.

Online Growth Guru has been building relationships online for 12 years and can certainly use them to help grow your business.

Digital Marketing SEO Importance

Do I need an SEO Agency or will a Freelancer be better?

Of course, the choice is yours but here’s some food for thought.

An agency is all but guaranteed to be more expensive.

However, they probably also have a number of experts to go alongside the SEO campaign.

The most important thing whether using a freelancer, medium sized company or an agency is that you have a focused individual who will spend time getting to know your products and industry.

Does the agency need to be near me?

With the technology we have today, your chosen agency could essentially be based anywhere in the world. However, don’t be afraid of checking out the local SEO talent first.
