What Is SEO?
SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, in its basic sense is the use of optimisation techniques that search engines such as Google and Bing find beneficial, relevant and compelling for the searcher. The clearer the content and the more useful search engines find your website the higher up the page your listings will appear on Google or Bing! It’s as simple as that!
Where Will I Find Organic Listings?
As per the image above, you will find the start of the organic listings below the paid ads (Google Ads) directly under the maps listings (Google My Business).
Over the years Google have moved the organic listings further and further down the page. This poses a number of issues that need careful consideration when choosing an SEO Agency for your business.
How Agencies Normally Conduct SEO.
SEO is, and will continue to be a digital marketing agency’s number 1 earner! We don’t want to bundle all agencies in together but we feel there is a better way of providing value to clients when it comes to SEO management and organic visibility.
It isn’t uncommon for agencies to charge you a monthly fee for SEO management. This type of management has its benefits and its pitfalls. The biggest issue we’ve experienced with this type of project management is simply how murky it is in regards to where your money actually goes. Is it all being spent on content creation? Are you being fobbed off by the whole “We’re conducting research” line?. In short, it’s impossible for you to know how, what and where your monthly fee is being spent.
Is it worth paying an agency a monthly fee for SEO work on an on-going basis? We don’t think it is!
How Loud Digital’s SEO Is Different.
For starters, we don’t rope you in for $2000 a month with the promise we’ll get all of your sixty keywords on the first page within a month or two. Secondly, we don’t adopt a scatter-gun approach to our SEO work; we are laser focused on the task at hand and it works! It really does.
We break our SEO down into small, bite-sized projects that you can monitor, see and tick off!
If we see you need more content created we will advise you on the content required, the length of the content and an up front price for the creation, implementation and on-going editing, if required.
We have a very, very, very transparent pricing structure for content and all of our content creation team are native English speakers and are independently rated as 4/5 star rated content writers.
All of our content prices include full subject research, royalty free images (if needed), formatted text that’s ready to publish and all meta descriptions and page titles are included too!
You simply tell us what you want (or we’ll advise you what you need) and we’ll do the rest! We even give you seven days to edit the content without further charges!
In the interest of being transparent a one-thousand word piece of content starts from just $150!
Link Building The Loud Digital Way!
OK, SEO can be confusing and SEO agencies can make it even more confusing! We don’t! In fact, we make it really, really simple to understand and follow!
One of the biggest points of confusion is the lil old link building and backlinks!
What Is Link Building? And What On Earth Is A Backlink?
So, are you ready for this complex explanation? A backlink is a link to your site from another website. That’s it! Mind blowing, hey!
Just so there is no confusion, a back link is when one website has a link contained within its content that, when clicked, will direct the user to another website!
Link building is simply the process involved in getting backlinks for your site on other websites.
One of the most effective backlinks to get is from online directories such as truelocal.com.au or hotfrog.com.au. These websites are vital for SEO and organic listings as you can bet your competition are listed there!
We offer a wide array of backlink building services with our most popular being the inclusion of your website on pretty much every local directory you can imagine!
Local Citations – Directory Backlinks
In our quest for openness, transparency and just being all-round great people, we wanted to detail our most popular service – our local citation offering!
We will spend as long s it takes to get your business listed with anywhere between 25 and 100 directories in around ten days!
We do all the hard work so you don’t have to. Starting from just $85 we will provide you with a full submission report, submission screenshots and all login details to each directory.
Again, we don’t believe in cutting corners so each and every submission is submitted to each directory manually so we can be sure all your details are correct!
All we need from you are your details such as Name, Address and Phone Number (NAP) and email addresses!
