Frequently Asked Questions

How long does SEO take?

The time it takes to establish rankings is dependent on a few factors.

  1. How competitive the industry or keywords are
  2. Whether the site has been penalised previously
  3. Whether there has been any prior optimisation performed
Should I invest in SEO or PPC?

It depends on your business. Many clients choose to support a growing SEO campaign with a small PPC spend, allowing them to buy traffic while their organic rankings grow. The choice to invest in SEO or PPC also depends on your industry, business model, and level of competition. Generally SEO is a long term, lower cost strategy, while PPC is a more immediate, higher cost strategy.

Why do my rankings fluctuate?

Google is constantly updating their algorithm to fight poor quality and over-optimised sites. They are constantly testing these adjustments, establishing whether searchers engage more with these updated selection of websites. An effective SEO campaign will answer to these fluctuations, safe-guarding your site from penalties and dramatic ranking drops.

What is SEO?

However, there are hundreds of sites above and below you who want to push you down the ladder. An SEO campaign works to constantly monitor and maintain rankings, responding to fluctuations.
