SEO Essentials

If you’re currently running a website in Hampshire and you’re looking to grow your website without throwing lots of money at pay per click or paid social, looking at SEO is a great place to begin.

We’re able to deliver SEO (or Search Engine Optimization) services and eCommerce SEO that can help your Hampshire website get index quicker, deeper and more successfully by search engines, which in turn will deliver you a greater volume of qualified site visitors and ultimately drive more leads, conversions and sales from your website.

SEO is important for any website to succeed, but it’s even more important if it’s a source of leads or sales enquiries for your business. For local trades, professional services or charities, without organic search engine visibility you’re opportunities for getting noticed will be limited to social and paid activity.

Whether you’ve got a Portsmouth website or a national business, we’ve a proven track record in SEO over many years – always adapting to changing algorithms and search engine requirements.

Making sure your Hampshire website site is optimized for search engines is a great  way to make sure that you are doing all you can to attract good quality web traffic. Most websites sites today rely upon paid ads or social media to attract visitors, both of which definitely have a place in your digital marketing mix.

But both are what we call ‘fire and forget’ tactics, with short term impact but limited long term gain. Paid spend can influence organic ranking indirectly, but it’s short term benefit rather than building a sustainable platform for search engine results for your Hampshire business.

On Page SEO

On-page SEO for Hampshire websites is the optimisation of various elements of your web pages, including copy, visuals, internal linking and site layout.

The first step is to ensure that Google is able to crawl and index your website. 

From there, we’ll look at areas such as heading structure, image alternative text, internal link structure and meta data (titles and descriptions) to ensure that your site delivers great user experiences and search engine crawlability.

Web page content is another key component of on page SEO. How relevant and keyword-specific it is to your users and their search intent are factors that Google takes into account when presenting results to any given query.

The days of keyword stuffing are long gone and doing this will inevitably end up in a Google penalty of some sort so we caution against this kind of tactic. 


Off Page SEO

Off page SEO is activities done away from your website in an effort to increase your website’s search engine rankings versus Hampshire competitors.

Common off-page SEO tactics include building backlinks, encouraging branded searches, and increasing engagement and shares on social media.

When it comes to off-page SEO, backlinks are really important, but it’s absolutely about quality over  quantity. You’re goal is to get Google and other search engines to see your website as trustworthy and authoritative.

Relevant links will drive your website above your Hampshire competitors in search results and we achieve quality links through blogger outreach that is 100% genuine outreach not automated or spammy and guaranteed to deliver links of at least Moz DA30+

Off page SEO isn’t just about links, it is also related to how your site is viewed across the web a a whole. Quality, timely and engaging social media activity is important and managing reviews across digital endpoints also matter to SEO.

Technical SEO

This is often considered the science of SEO and includes analysing areas such as your Robots.txt, the url structure of your site, breadcrumb menus, the implementation of Structured Data Markup, Canonical URLs, XML Sitemap Optimization and browser caching.

Technical SEO will uncover and reveal those key geekery components that are may be holding your Hampshire website back from SEO greatness. 

Site infrastructure, page speed and good code are important in ensuring your website can be crawled and indexed by Google and deliver a great user experience for your visitors.


The success of every digital marketing campaign for Hampshire businesses is determined by the quality of your initial strategy and SEO is no different.

Our Hampshire SEO strategy is underpinned by initial market research where we benchmark and assess your competitors and how they are performing on Google and the ‘why’ that sits behind this. We will also audit and review your overall SEO performance and health of your website to understand why your site is performing as it is and an action plan to improve.

From this initial benchmark, monitoring ongoing SEO performance is simply a matter of transparent, clear reporting each week/month to our clients. In our reporting we’ll break down our work by on page/off page/technical and provide dashboards of the impact of this activity, alongside ROI estimates.
