Looking for an SEO in York? I'm a York SEO specialist with 20+ years experience of search engine optimisation. SEO services are what I specialise in and I'm available on project based work and digital marketing campaigns, as well as on long term monthly fixed price contracts.

SEO York

Its likely that you did a search on Google for something like "seo york" or "seo agency york" to find this page - you clicked on the top result and found me. That's what Search Engine Optimisation is all about and, as a York SEO company, I can make that happen for your organisation too.

When SEO is performed in the correct manner it is a very cost-effective way to bring converting customers to your website. Unfortunately, SEO can be engineered incorrectly which results in poor performance in the search engine listings and possible penalties with Google. Its important to get it right first time. Consequently, its important to pick the correct SEO marketing partner.

I help small to medium businesses get their website ranking on the first page on Google. This drives more qualified traffic to your website which convert to paying customers. This is where some York SEO consultants miss the point, all they focus on is ranking for a specific keyword term. I focus on driving sales for your business.

Therefore, if you're interested in driving customers to your website then I'd like to work with you to build your business. I've been optimising web sites, writing content and building links for nearly twenty years and have a lot of experience in this field. So, if online SEO services in York are what you're looking for and you don't want to pay the expensive costs of a York SEO agency then why not get in touch for a free SEO consultation?

So how does SEO work?

I’ll be using Google as a main source of organic traffic; Over 80% of people in York and North Yorkshire will be using Google as their primary search engine, so this is typically the strategy I base my SEO service on.

Google works predominantly on inbound links. Take the UK's democratic voting system as an example. The more votes the local candidate in York receives, the more likely that they will become the new member of parliament for the area. Getting to the top of Google is a similar concept; the more links you have pointing to your website, the better your chances of achieving first page rankings. You also need to be voted in as a candidate in the first place (similar to your website being technically correct and found by Google) and you need to say the right things (have the correct content on your site).

There are over 200 ranking factors for SEO. Google's algorithms are being updated on a frequent basis which makes keeping up with Google's algorithms a full time job. Its important that you choose an experienced SEO company to keep your website ranking at the top of the search engine result pages.

The Best SEO York has to offer

I've been providing SEO consultancy in the York area for over 20 years now. My SEO services include:

Looking for SEO York has it covered

Sometimes its difficult for a York based marketing agency to provide an effective SEO specialism because its not their sole focus. They provide branding, PR, web design, web development, ecommerce, social media marketing and, possible as an afterthought, Search Engine Optimisation. I don't do this. I focus on search engine optimisation only as I strongly believe in the benefits of SEO.

Apart from my fees, there is relatively little cost or work involved from your side. You don't need to pay for online advertising or spend hours feeding social networks. As one of the UK's top SEO consultants I ensure that your website is SEO ready, write relevant copy to get you noticed and then create backlinks to promote your business in your niche. All of this is tracked and visible to you to monitor.

OK, enough about SEO, What is it that makes the wonderful city of York so special?
