Which is the best SEO company UK?

Summer 2017 SEO Review

Are you bogged down trying to find a UK SEO company to help improve your website position in Google?

SEO is difficult these days. Google are always changing what is important in the struggle to get a website ranked highly. Gone are the days where the best SEO companies could just create 1000’s of backlinks. These days a top search engine marketing service will need to work hard making appropriate changes to your website. No longer can the SEO companies add your keywords within the text, header and links. SEO in the UK must be done in the right way or Google will penalise your website and you will lose any rank you had to start with. Plus, you’ll be hundreds, if not thousands of pounds out of pocket.

We have evaluated the top search engine marketing companies in the UK, and ranked the best SEO agencies below in our easy to understand Top 10 Table. Here is our handpicked selection of, what we consider to be, the best SEO companies currently operating within the UK. Read on to see who we have rated as the best UK search engine optimisation company in our review.

BEST UK SEO COMPANY SUMMER 2017



FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A SEO AGENCY

At some point during your company’s development you will want to find an organisation that can enhance your web marketing strategy. Good SEO companies will tailor the services that they offer to your specific industry, so it’s important to choose a UK search engine optimisation company that has experience of, and an appreciation of, you and the services that you offer. Logic would tell you that the best SEO companies out there achieve a high ranking on Google, however, this is not always the case. Precedence is given by the search engines, to those companies that have been established the longest; therefore a high search rating could simply equate to a long established company, rather than one that provides a first rate service, and, more importantly is specifically suited to your needs.

Looks aren’t everything when looking for a company to handle your SEO marketing. An eye-catching website, although appealing, doesn’t necessarily mean that the company will provide the best SEO service available out there. Also, don’t rule out smaller UK SEO companies. If you are a smaller company yourself, a two man band may be able to provide just the right sort of bespoke service that you are in need of. Whereas you could find yourself swallowed up by a larger, albeit successful and well publicised, search engine marketing agency.

It’s worth bearing in mind that Google have significantly changed the way that they list websites with the introduction of a new feature called ‘Google Places’. ‘Google Places’ are business listings that appear before the rest of the search results. This change means that not only do companies need to employ methods of ensuring that your website appears in the general rankings, they also need to make sure that you show up in ‘Google Places’. It may be worth asking potential UK SEO company how they deal with this relatively new development; those who have never even heard of it, are obviously best avoided!

A successful SEO company will have a top notch research program in place. It’s vitally important that they conduct a thorough analysis of your online competitors, in order to find out what sites are performing well and why.

BEFORE HIRING AN SEO COMPANY, AND PARTING WITH YOUR HARD EARNED CASH

Make sure that you ask plenty of questions. Ask for references, and examples of successful campaigns that they have worked on previously. Find out how many pages are included in the price they have quoted, and ask how they plan to maintain your SEO program in the longer term. Be wary of search engine marketing companies who make extravagant claims, and who guarantee that your site will appear on page one. It’s pretty obvious that not every site can secure that coveted first place on Google! Also watch out for “top” SEO agencies that plan to cram your site full of hidden text and links; search engines hate spam! No respectable UK search engine optimisation company would ever resort it this cheating tactic.

SO, HOW DO YOU FIND THE BEST SEO FIRM TO SUIT YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS?

Well, firstly, decide exactly what you want to achieve. Perhaps you would like to grow your sales by ten percent within the next six months? It’s useful to have a target in mind, so that you measure how well your SEO marketing service is performing. Secondly, make sure that you shop around. Make a shortlist, and ask viable providers (perhaps two or three) if they are willing to conduct a free consultation. By doing this, you will get a feel for exactly who you are dealing with, and the costs involved. It’s also useful to ask to see examples of the work that they have done for previous clients, and references if they are available. Finally, try to find an search engine optimisation company that has worked with businesses in fields similar to yours. If they have been successful in boosting sales for your competitors, then the likelihood is that they will achieve similar success for your business.

There are a vast number of SEO companies out there who are vying for your trade. Remember, be clear in your own mind what exactly it is that you want to achieve. A great looking site might be a good indicator of success when looking for a web-hosting company, but this isn’t necessarily the case for one that promises enhanced SEO. Make sure that the firm you have in mind is up to date with the latest strategies employed by search engines; ‘Google Places’ being a prime example, and, last but not least, if a company promises you the top place on Google, tread very carefully!
