What Is SEO Marketing?

SEO marketing is the fundamental aim of making your website as visible as possible to drive relevant traffic from web searches…that’s it. Sounds simple, right? Wrong.

Google (the papa bear of search engines) loves to move the goalposts.

Google’s algorithm consists of bots or “crawlers”. Sounds like the beginnings of a plot to a C-grade horror movie, starring Stephen Baldwin. But these bots crawl all the websites on the internet, looking to gather information and assess where to rank your site and your pages.

This information is then digested in such a way that determines the relevance, usefulness, and overall quality of the page. This is the foundation upon which the search experience is built.

Our SEO Strategy Services

We pride ourselves in our custom approach to every single one of our SEO clients. But even with this tried and tested method, some aspects of the process will always remain the same.

Initial SEO Consultation

We aim to understand your business goals, your current SEO situation and agree a strategy and implementation plan that’s in line with where you want your valuable property to be, both on the SERPs and in terms of revenue.

Strategic Approach

Your Account Manager and SEO Specialist will work usually on a monthly cadence, to recommend a program of work, the expected outcomes over time, and gather any feedback that’s needed from your end.

White-Hat & Best Practice

Why? You shouldn’t need to ask. But as part of an ASX listed group and with 19 years in the industry, we know that the long term success of our both our clients and therefore we as an agency rely on having transparency and integrity to our approach.

SEO Education

If you can’t explain it simply, then do you don’t understand it at all. We guide you throughout this process so we can work together to achieve results. The best results come from working together to achieve common goals. We’ll also educate you on SERP Personalization so you can understand why everyone doesn’t see the same results – and the opportunities that come with it.


We know you want to ask… how much does this all cost? The short answer is that we would need to talk to discuss your unique situation, and that our fees scale in line with the effort required to meet your objectives. That’s not a dodge, that’s just us being honest. Even though we work a digital industry, we always prefer to do business face-to-face, or over the phone. And to get a good idea of pricing, we’d need to have a chat first.
