Frequently asked questions

Every website and business is different so the price can vary depending on previous work and current search engine visibility, as well as how competitive your market is. We take all of this into account to ensure we make a recommendation that produces the best return on your investment. That being said, if you are a local service provider or have a brick and mortar location like a restaurant or shop in Exeter our minimum recommended investment starts at £259/month for an ongoing SEO strategy, and can increase significantly depending on your budget, desired goals as well as the factors mentioned above.

In most cases the answer is yes. There are a few exceptions though. If you are selling a new product or service that people are not familiar with or do not search for, SEO might not be the best tactic to increase sales. In such cases, a content marketing strategy may be devised to reach your target audience and educate them on the product. So if you have the budget for it, it is possible to get good results.

There are also certain search terms that are so competitive it is not cost effective to try to rank for. If you are a hotel for example and want to rank for the search term “Hotels Exeter” you may find that it is almost impossible to do so in the organic search results. In cases like these, we will look to do keyword research to find other less competitive search terms to rank for, or try to rank your hotel in the Google maps pack for people searching near your location.

In all of these cases, we may decline to take you on as an SEO client or our experienced marketers may offer better solutions to achieve your business goals.

Our agency’s core value is to “Make a difference”, not a sale!

Like most SEO questions … it depends. It can range from as low as 30 days to as much as years, in the case of very popular search terms. For businesses located in Exeter, the usual timeframe before we see a good improvement in rankings is after 3 months. However, if you are a dentist, solicitor or real estate agent, for example, it can take 12 months to 18 months to see significant results.

Google’s John Mueller recently said that it could take up to a year for them to figure out where a new site should rank, and that fluctuations are expected during this timeframe.

If you are an Exeter-based business and you have any other questions please let us know. One of our team is always on hand to bring clarity.
