Award-Winning Sydney Local SEO Service

Local search engine optimisation is an incredibly powerful marketing strategy for Sydney businesses in 2024.

With its ability to improve businesses’ online visibility, targeting local Sydney-based customers and instilling trust and brand recognition in surrounding areas.

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

These are “city” or “region” specific terms that localise the content… targeting the local area being focused on.

Along with the local content being created, a well-rounded local campaign will also include the optimisation, management & content creation for a business Google My Business Profile.

Increases a business’s local Map Pack ranking to further boost online visibility, and local traffic and increase leads.

Website SEO Audit & Scope Meeting

Every campaign starts by getting to understand your business, your goals and the results you are looking to achieve from your local SEO Campaign.

This allows us to align our local SEO strategy to your Sydney business (yes, every campaign we complete is tailored uniquely to your business), ultimately getting you a better result throughout the campaign.

From here, our SEO team will then progress into a website analysis (SEO Audit) – Assessing your existing local rankings, what’s working and potentially what needs to be addressed upon onboarding.

Completing this audit allows us to have a better understanding of the requirements of your website. Along with this, it allows us to better align your campaign and the resources it will require to be successful… we consider this as “creating a baseline”.

Keyword Planner & Competitor Analysis

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

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. Allowing us to identify the require local content that will need to be created for your local SEO campaign.

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). 

Along with completing keyword research, we also like to run a competitive analysis or keyword gap analysis, to ensure we haven’t missed any opportunities that your “key” competitors may be capitalising on that you aren’t… We don’t want you to miss out!

SEO Campaign Implementation

This is when our team combines its research from your baseline SEO audit, any corrective measures needing to be addressed, the primary keywords to target and competitive opportunities. 

This will all be collated into a structured SEO roadmap for implementation… 

We will jump into any “critical” SEO errors first, as are often very impactful to your rankings (which can result in some great “quick wins”).

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 right… Our Local SEO campaigns in Sydney are monthly. 

Our SEO experts are ready to drive your campaign EVERY month, not just at the beginning of a 12-month contract like so many other agencies… or at the end to try to retain your business…

Our SEO team is giving you complete transparency, integrity and the confidence that your campaign will be a successful one.

This tool allows you to witness the actual benefits of your SEO campaign in real-time, from any location. You’ll gain valuable insights into keyword positioning, organic traffic, and more.

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.
