Why businesses choose us for their Local SEO

How do we do it?

We have worked with 100s of Melbourne-based businesses… in almost every industry you can imagine.

What does this mean for you? 

We know what works, and equally what doesn’t… Our team is at the forefront of local SEO strategy and writing the playbook of “how to get results” for local SEO in Australia.

So, How do we do it?


Local Keyword Research

Our SEO team will complete keyword research on your products and services – identifying high-intent, relevant and highly converting key terms for your local campaign to focus on. 

This process is paramount to the success of any local SEO campaign… allowing us to align with your business, and the goals you have and ensure we can roadmap clear KPI’s for our team to work towards. This creates a successful local SEO campaign.


Local Authority Building

Link building is such a vital signal for search engines and still is in 2024.

At Digital Nomads HQ, we have a link-building team working on creating high-quality (niche-relevant) backlinks for your business, to increase your business and brand authority in the eyes of search engines.

This ultimately increases the visibility and local traffic to your website.


Local Content Creation

Creating local content and localised pages on your website is a must!

Creating blogs, articles and geo-location-based pages is a critical part of local SEO campaigns… this is ultimately what allows search engines to deliver “relevant” local content to your target audience.

Our team will work on creating this content, so your businesses is visible to your target audience when they are searching.

Award-Winning Melbourne Local SEO Services

Local SEO is an incredibly powerful marketing channel in 2024… and it is still untapped by so many SMBs in Melbourne.


With the ability to drastically improve a local business’s search visibility across Melbourne, and allow local customers the opportunity to find you when they are searching for products or services that you offer… why wouldn’t you invest in this marketing opportunity?

So, How does it work?

A local SEO campaign’s goal is to target local relevant search queries based on “location-specific” keywords… e.g. Melbourne Electrician, Accountant Melbourne or Real Estate Agency in Melbourne etc.

These are location-modified search terms… targeting the local area being focused on.

Along with this, a well-rounded local SEO campaign will also include the optimisation, management & content creation for a business Google My Business Profile. By working on a GMB profile and experienced optimisation, our team can improve your search visibility in Google’s Map Pack.

Local SEO Audit & Meeting

We start every campaign … no matter the channel with a scoping meeting… This allows us to align to your goals, objectives for your business and the goals specifically surrounding in this case a local SEO campaign. 

After our scoping call, our team will progress into a local SEO audit and sitewide analysis – this assessing your current performance, local rankings, technical errors and opportunities.

By completing this audit it allows our team to have a comprehensive understanding of the requirements to ensure a successful local campaign We call this “creating a baseline”

Local Competition & Keyword Planner

Upon completion of the first phase, we move into competitive analysis and your keyword planner. 

By assessing competition within your industry we can identify potential content gaps and keyword gaps that your competitors may be capitalising on… These can be great opportunities within your campaign to take market share.

With this information, our team will outline local keywords that your campaign will be targeting… based on primary services and cities, or regions from which your customers are searching. 

These key terms will then be added to our SEO reporting tool – giving you live daily updates on each keyword and its progress (You will receive access to this dashboard). 

Local SEO Implementation

Working on any technical issues and critical tasks from our audit first! Our team will then start working through the copyrighting and creation of localised content to start obtaining the primary key terms outlined in our planner.

Along with working on a thorough analysis of your Google my business profile and optimisation of your descriptions, product listings, NAP and service offerings.

Ongoing SEO Campaign

With the “critical” tasks out of the way, your campaign transitions into a proactive SEO campaign.

Working on strategic ongoing local SEO content, writing “expert” level content to not just rank… but outrank your competitors (and convert). 

Creating topic pillars and cornerstone content on your website to increase your topical relevancy within your industry… Along with enhancing your backlink profile (link-building) to improve your website’s authority!

This is how your Local SEO campaign becomes a successful one…

That’s correct…We don’t do contracts!

Our team are here to drive your campaign EVERY month, not just at the beginning of a 12-month contract and at the end to try to retain your business… Like SO many other agencies!

Our team is here… month in… month out, giving you complete transparency, integrity and the confidence that your campaign will be a successful one.

As part of our commitment to transparency, we grant all our SEO clients access to our live SERP ranking tool.

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation, which is the process of optimising a website to rank higher on search engine result pages (SERPs). It involves on-page optimisation, off-page optimisation and technical optimisation work. By improving a website’s visibility in SERPs, it can help increase organic traffic from users who are searching for relevant information or products related to the website.

For more information on “What is SEO” check out our recent article (here) or see our YouTube video below;

Looking to improve your local SEO?

Here are a few tips from our experts in-house to help you improve your local rankings;

  • Make sure your website is mobile-friendly (Google is mobile-first indexing…)
  • Optimising your content to relate to local key terms and phrases… use Google autocomplete to get some ideas to what people might be searching.
  • If you haven’t already… Create a Google My Business (GMB) profile! Here’s a guide on how to do this. Create a Google My Business Profile.
  • Start building your reviews… ask previous customers and put a process in place to automatically ask recent customers.

Search engines use a variety of factors to determine website rankings, such as the quality of the content, the number of inbound links, user engagement metrics (such as time on page and bounce rate), mobile-friendliness and load time. Search engines also use algorithms to analyse websites and determine their relevance to certain keywords. The more relevant a website is to a particular keyword or query, the higher it will rank on SERPs. It is important for website owners to regularly audit their website’s SEO health and make sure it is optimised for search engine algorithms.

Unlike Google Ads, Facebook Ads and web development, SEO is an ongoing process of optimisation and tweaks, due to the ever-changing ranking metrics and factors that search engines out an emphasis on.

There are many ways to measure the success of your SEO campaign – if you are just commencing in SEO the first factor you will be focusing on is keyword rankings. Once you obtain a first page position, the next measure of success is organic traffic. Once your website has hit first position for your primary keyword, this is where CRO comes in – where we monitor conversion rates and how we can best set your website up for maximum conversions.

Organic search results are those that appear naturally in the SERPs due to their relevance to the user’s query. Whereas, paid search results are those that appear after a company has paid to have its website advertised. These ads appear at both the top and bottom of the SERPs and are typically labelled as ‘sponsored’. Unlike organic, paid search is a strategy where businesses bid and spend money to show up for a particular query.

For more information on Organic vs Paid … Check out our SEO vs SEM article (here) or see our YouTube video below;

Backlinks are incoming links from one website to another and are an important factor in determining a website’s ranking in search engine results. Backlinks signal to search engines that a website is popular and relevant, and can be seen as a ‘vote of confidence’ for your website. Having backlinks from high-quality websites can help boost your website’s ranking as it shows other websites find the content valuable enough to link to it. It is important to have quality backlinks from reputable websites for them to be effective in boosting your SEO rankings.

Why Do I Need SEO?

SEO delivers lasting results for Sydney businesses. Unlike paid ads that vanish when the budget runs out, SEO builds compounding success over time.

Our team specialises in creating comprehensive strategies that boost your ranking for the keywords that matter most to your business.
