Why are our SEO campaigns so successful?

Experience…and lots of it!

We have been working with businesses across Australia for years, working in every industry and across all budgets. We have tested it all and know what works… and equally what doesn’t. So know that our team can achieve the SEO results you are looking for!

How do we do it?


Relevant Content

We create relevant content! 

Google is looking for content that is targeted to your location (Canberra) and equally so are your customers…  This is where localised content comes in. Creating pages for your services that are tailored to your geographical area. Example: Canberra Real estate agency, Plumbers in Canberra… making sure your services are front and centre for your customers when they search.


Site Authority

Building your website authority is a must –  Statistically higher ranking pages has more backlinks (1st positions 3.8x more links)… so our team will ensure a link-building strategy is part of your SEO campaign. 

We don’t just get you “random” backlinks either! We create high authority (niche-relevant) links that will provide great value to your websites trust.


User Experience

User experience always has to be front of mind. Sending customers to a page with a bad experience can cost you the potential conversion…

This can be speed, user navigation, cross-device compatibility and content.

With a full team of designers, developers & experienced digital marketing experts… we can make sure the site experience is a great one!

Canberra Local SEO Agency

Experienced in working on Canberra business and implementing strategic local SEO campaigns (with amazing results!), know that you’re in safe hands!

Whether you are looking to increase your position in the Google Map Pack or increase your websites overall rankings in Google SERPs (Search Engine Results Page) we will tailor a solution that aligns with your business goals.

Our team will work alongside yours with frequent meetings, discussing opportunities, implementation feedback and progression in your campaign (so you’re never left in the dark). 

Scoping & SEO Audit

Every campaign starts with a scoping call to better understand your business… your objectives and the goals (KPIs) you may have for your SEO campaign.

By completing this, we can ensure that we better align our SEO strategy to suit the needs you have as a business.

This ultimately gets you a better result in the end!

Post this meeting, our SEO team will analyse your existing website, assessing on-page copy, backlink profile, and technical SEO aspects… you name it, we check it!

By completing this before your onboarding, we can gauge the resources required to get the best from your SEO campaign… consider it “creating a baseline”.

Keyword Research & Competitive Analysis

With the SEO audit documentation already completed – we can quickly move into your comprehensive keyword planner.

This is the process of documenting the primary keywords to which we will be targeting within your campaign.

All these keywords will also be implemented into our keyword tracking dashboard (which you get access to). 

Along with the keyword research & planner, we also undergo a complete competitive analysis. This ensures 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!

Campaign Implementation

We like to move fast… often meaning we are in campaign implementation within 1-2 weeks!

Our SEO specialists will now combine the findings from our baseline SEO audit, any corrective measures needing to be addressed, and the keywords we will be targeting over your campaign roll-out.

The team will always prioritise any “critical” tasks first, as these can quickly turn rankings around if the website is struggling to get traction (which can result in some great “quick wins”).

Ongoing SEO Campaign

Quick wins obtained and priorities addressed…your campaign transitions into a proactive SEO campaign.

Working monthly on new strategic content, writing “engaging, expert level” content, that doesn’t just rank… but outranks your competitors. 

We will develop topical pillars on your website to increase your topical relevancy within your industry… and increase your authority by building on your niche backlink profile!

This is how your SEO campaign becomes a successful one…

Yes… we aren’t just a team of SEO experts…

We are a complete digital marketing agency!

When you partner with us, you team up with an in-house team of local marketing specialists. Every strategy we develop, every piece of content we create, and every solution we implement is completed by our team members. We proudly do not outsource any part of our work.

Our no-lock-in contract policy means our team puts in effort every month to guarantee you see tangible results! 

No longer are you stuck in long-term contracts of 12-month SEO campaigns…

With businesses complaining about “lack of communication” or “zero transparency”. Our team is here… month in… month out, giving you complete transparency and approachability.

We understand the nature of Brisbane businesses and recognise the urgency many small businesses have in generating new leads or driving sales.

With our holistic understanding of business dynamics & marketing together… our team will get to work straight away on your campaign (having you onboard, with implementation often within a week of signing up).

Set aside any concerns about staying informed throughout your campaign – we keep you in the loop every step of the way, transparency is a core value of our business.

SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is the optimisation process to increase a website’s ranking in SERPs.

Want to learn more on what is SEO?

Listen to Benjamin Paine and Annabelle Cochrane explain the ins and outs of SEO.

or read our comprehensive guide on “What is SEO

The cost of local SEO Services in Canberra ranges from $1,000 per month to $3,000+ per month. These costs vary and are based on the SEO scope of work or inclusions in the campaign. A once-off setup/project cost for SEO can be $3,500 – $10,000+ depending on the number of pages required and keyword target quantity – where as a monthly campaign for a local business looking to improve there ranking in SERPs will generally be between $1,000 – $2,500 AUD p/m.

Common questions we frequently answer from clients are, “Why do I need SEO?” “Can’t I just run Google ads?” And while, yes, Google advertising and meta marketing can be fantastic lead-generation platforms and, in most cases, can provide the result in a matter of days,.

However, SEO is about compound returns and long-term success.

Example: Turn ads on, and leads start flowing. Turn your ads off, and the tap stops.

SEO works differently in that, by investing in your organic rankings, you can start ranking for the primary key terms that your customers are searching for. With a comprehensive strategy and some clever content, we can put you in the top positions for some of the industry’s most competitive terms.

A common question that we get asked… “Why is SEO important, or Why do I need to do SEO?”

The answer isn’t necessarily a simple one. 

SEO in most cases is a “no brainer” to invest into, with plenty of high-intent search traffic and keywords that are easy to obtain (low keyword difficulty) investing even just a small amount in a monthly campaign can very quickly provide a return…. and not just a return for a month or two… but long term compounding returns.

One statistic is that small businesses that invest in SEO, can see an average of 30%+ traffic increase within four months.

Now, yes the opposite can be true.

Low search volumes, with very hard-to-obtain keywords, may make you reconsider investing in an SEO campaign. This is why we always want to conduct an audit of your website, competitors & market opportunity prior to recommending any investment.

Yes, SEO does work for almost every industry… there are some rare circumstances when there isn’t enough search or the industry is heavily reliant on referral or word of mouth… by 98% of the time there’s an opportunity! (Just see our case studies). Whether you are a small local trade business or an enterprise-level organisation, our SEO team will assess your website, create a tailored SEO strategy and implement it in alignment with your budget to meet your goals. Our team will then track and measure the progress of your SEO campaign, making measurable changes monthly to ensure that you are getting the best possible results. With our combined expertise in technical SEO, content creation, and authority building, we can help you achieve success with search engine optimisation.

Search engines take into account a number of factors and signals – and these change all the time. Overall, search engines monitor the words of your query, the relevance of your content, the usability of the website as a whole and the credibility of your referring links. Each of these factors has a different weight in the ranking system, and these change from time to time. This is why investing in a specialist team that is completely engulfed in the current SEO trends and ranking metrics pays off.
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.

SEO vs Google Ads, which is the best option?

Together in a collaborative marketing strategy is the best result.

Key Point: Google Ads are fantastic to drive fast, intent driven leads, especially when implemented by an agency or professional. Meanwhile, SEO is the way to go when it comes to building long-term success, authority, and brand viability.
