A Sydney SEO company that makes more money for the clients we work with

You’re probably fending them off every day: low-quality Sydney SEO agencies jamming up your phones and inbox with promises of page one and rankings.

Let’s be honest – do you really care about Google rankings or are new customers and revenue what’s important?

In addition to the leading SEO Sydney has to offer, we also have an obsessive focus on conversion. Our SEO campaigns are finely tuned to attract “wallets out” visitors to your website and turn them from a browser to a buyer.

Work with a Sydney SEO service that will:

Discover your business goals & opportunities
Craft a plan to score you Google visibility & website traffic
Convert the traffic to leads & sale

Because rankings are nice, website traffic is better, but new customers are what it’s all about.

At Local Digital, our Sydney based team of SEO experts have a relentless focus on all three.

Read More About Sydney SEO

SEO, or search engine optimisation, is a vital part of any digital marketing strategy. It is what drives organic, high-quality traffic straight from the search engines to your website, which in turn increases sales and revenue.

A clever SEO strategy puts your website directly in the customer's line of view, conveniently showing up when these visitors are looking on the search engines for a product or service that you happen to sell. If your site isn't optimised for search engine rankings, it will probably sit on the fourth or fifth page of a search query, though.

Nobody is determined enough to wade through five pages of search results to find your page, even if they were looking for it specifically. So, with that in mind, engaging the best SEO Sydney has to offer should be a vital aspect of your digital marketing strategy.

What is SEO Sydney?

Before you start looking for an SEO Sydney company that is going to put you on the first page of a search engine result, you need to understand the value of an SEO Campaign as a part of your digital marketing mix. SEO Campaigns helps you weed out SEO agencies that are out to swindle your money without delivering the results you want online, and instead, ensure you work with a leading SEO team.

In addition to SEO on a global scale, many local companies are now looking at SEO specifically as a marketplace. Domestic companies achieve excellent results by driving relevant Sydney customers to their websites through local SEO strategies.

The localised SEO approach is particularly useful for location-based companies, such as plumbers, handymen, lawyers, and healthcare practitioners.

How it works

SEO relies on understanding the market and taking advantage of a search engine's algorithm to ensure your business appears on the first page of the search results.

When customers type a keyword into a search engine of their choice, the algorithm decides which pages to show, for example. All search engines rely on crawlers for data—small pieces of code that scan and analyse all the websites on the internet. It draws this information back to the search engine, which uses a carefully controlled algorithm to decide if a certain website is a suitable match for the search.

Let's say you're searching for an Apple phone in Sydney. You type 'Apple store Sydney.' The algorithm will have to evaluate your search, look at all Sydney-based websites, and decide which results to show you.

A poorly programmed algorithm would show you fruit stores, as well as phone shops. A more valuable algorithm will deduce that you are looking for iPhones, not fruit.

A lot of Search Engine Optimisation focuses on figuring out what the algorithm is looking at and customising your website to fit those criteria. For example, we know that link building is a major area the algorithm looks at. A reliable SEO Sydney consultant will be able to place your store's website on the first page of any Apple-related search, for example.

SEO strategies revolve around targeting several areas, including high-quality content, an SEO-friendly website, and link-building. Each of these strategies will contribute to the success of your business and site rising through the relevant search engine rankings.

Many businesses are skeptical about how important SEO can be in the growth of a business and their online presence. Unfortunately, others have been burnt by low-quality digital marketing offerings. The fact of the matter is, ranking on the first page (with the help of SEO) is a vital source of new customers.

Search Engine Optimisation can make or break your business, though. Even if you're not convinced by the power of SEO results, especially local SEO Sydney trusts, your competitors are using it. Their websites are getting more views and more attention than yours, so if you're still on the fence, here are some tangible ways in which SEO will develop your business.

How SEO drives better quality traffic

Generating additional traffic to your website is meaningless if it doesn't lead to improved lead generation that translates into guaranteed future sales. One of the best aspects of Search Engine Optimisation is that it directs people to you who are already interested in the products or services you are offering on your website.

People who are researching something they want to buy will often turn to Google for more information. Potential buyers will use Google to find the best price, for example.

Visitors who arrive at your website through Sydney SEO did so because they were actively searching for the product or service that you offer, and the algorithm identified this need correctly. These people are much easier to convert into leads and sales than random pings on the radar.

Improved brand visibility by using SEO Sydney

If you're in a competitive niche, you probably already know the value of brand visibility.

Standing out requires an easily recognisable brand. If you appear consistently on the first page of search results, people begin to associate your brand with that search term, even if they don’t visit your site.

Increased visibility leads to brand awareness organically, which builds loyal and trusting customers around your locale. SEO Sydney will ensure that your brand achieves the increased exposure and online presence it needs to succeed with a competitive edge.

Build credibility

The main aim of search engine algorithms is to provide users with reliable and credible information on search criteria. The search engine algorithms prioritise websites and brands that appear credible and authoritative, providing a high-quality search experience for the user.

Many people have started to believe that businesses that rank highly on searches are more credible than those that aren’t – a successful Search Engine Optimisation campaign and strategy is the secret to their success. If you’re looking to build trust and improve a search engine ranking, this is how you do it.

You may even find that a marketing campaign that delivers lower rankings hurts the reputation of your growing company irrevocably against higher-ranked competitors.

The algorithm prioritises authoritative, high-quality sources, so many companies have started putting out authoritative, high-quality content. SEO incentivises companies to become thought-leaders in the field and put out credible content, which makes them seem more trustworthy to the general public.

Access to valuable data

Doing Search Engine Optimisation correctly in Sydney and achieving the SEO results you’re looking for needs access to a lot of data about how customers perceive and use your website. The data can be used in many other areas of your online presence to make sensible marketing decisions, too.

Understanding your customers also leads to more persuasive and effective marketing.

What is Our SEO Strategy?

There are many ways to handle SEO, and piecemeal services are popular among SEO Sydney agencies who like to focus on one aspect of SEO. The approach may improve one aspect of your search engine rankings slightly, but it tends to have a short-lived effect overall.

We find the best approach to search engine optimisation is to offer a range of SEO services directly tailored to our client's needs – that's the most effective way to deliver a good SEO strategy. Each company is different, so applying a one-size-fits-all strategy doesn't do enough to cut it in today's competitive digital landscape.

Most of our SEO strategy looks at the four main areas a Sydney SEO Company can offer: technical SEO, content, on-site SEO, and off-site SEO.

Technical SEO refers to how easy it is for a search engine crawler to index your website.

Content is about providing the most relevant, high-quality, authoritative information about a potential customer’s search query.

On-site SEO is what people tend to think of when they think of “SEO,” in terms of optimising the website user experience.

Off-site SEO is building your credibility through link building, for example.

The four areas of SEO work together to produce the results you want online. Each company will show individual strengths and weaknesses, so it’s our job to identify these gaps and fill in relevant data that will boost your website’s effectiveness on rankings and deliver the right SEO strategy.

Once we’ve brought every aspect up to par, you can decide how to proceed in the dynamic world of SEO Sydney.

What is SEO?

SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is essentially all about improving your website to ensure it is “pleasing” to Google’s algorithm and is an indispensable aspect to your online business growth. For most businesses, SEO is an essential part of their overall marketing strategy. In Sydney Google owns over 90% of all of the searches made by people looking for a business. The way it determines what to show these people is through the use of an algorithm.

This search engine algorithm looks at areas like the words on your website, the number of links you have, the speed of your server and hundreds of other factors.

If you want the algorithm to reward your site with more visitors, then optimising as many of these factors as possible gives you the best shot. In a nutshell, this is what Search Engine Optimisation is and how it works.

At Local Digital we use a range of search engine optimization techniques as part of a comprehensive SEO strategy to ensure your website ticks as many of these “Google boxes” as possible.

Why Do I Need SEO?

So you might be wondering why your business needs SEO? Why invest in an SEO agency? Is my SEO strategy really that important?

Well, as covered in the previous section, over 90% of people in Sydney will turn to Google to find a product or service. Ensuring your business appears in the search results using SEO can be extremely valuable to your business.

The key benefits of SEO are that, when done well, you will be able to push your business up into the top spots for highly valuable commercial terms and get those visitors to your site, without paying for every click like you would with Google AdWords. Just imagine the volume of leads and enquiries you would receive with a top quality SEO campaign.

What Can SEO Do For My Business?

Let’s look at the importance of a Sydney SEO campaign for small business.

9 out of 10 people will search Google before making a purchase. And you might think it’s easy to just advertise on AdWords to go after this traffic, and in a way you’re right.

We use and recommend AdWords, however, it should not be your only source of visitors, for two reasons.

The first is that the average number of people that click your ad is just 2%.

The second is that the cost for these clicks is steadily rising each year, making your cost to acquire a customer ever higher.

So how can a business be successful with Search Engine Optimisation? With SEO Sydney, once your website hits the top spots, you benefit from these visitors without paying for every click. The organic search results (aka the SEO results) also hoover up the lion’s share of clicks.

If your business can be in both the Google Ads and SEO results, you will unlock a valuable source of very targeted, wallets out buyers to your website.

Can I Just Do My Own SEO?

So you’re probably thinking how to manage your own SEO? How to do search engine optimization? Why do I need an SEO agency?

And we’re not going to lie… you absolutely could do it yourself. There are plenty of guides and information out there.

However, the problem is, sorting through this information to find the gold and exclude the snake oil is tough to do and will take years of experience.

Also, doing Sydney SEO simply takes time. Time to write content, time to optimise your server and CMS, time to go out and acquire high-quality backlinks.

Finally, if you’re in an industry worth a damn, you will be going up against highly skilled SEOs with years of experience. Many of the top ranked sites in any valuable industry in Sydney will already have an SEO agency or team of Sydney SEOs working on their campaign. You’ll be locking horns with them and learning on the job – not really a recipe for success a lot of the time.

In our opinion, a Sydney business owner should be focusing on more productive things – selling more, growing their customer base etc. leave the Search Engine Optimisation work to a business you can trust to get the job done right.

why should i choose local digital?

We’ll toot our own horn a little here – the question calls for it. You’re no doubt wondering how to choose an Search Engine Optimisation company.

We’re a tight-knit team of SEOs and digital marketers based in Parramatta in Sydney.

This very page you’re reading ranks at the top of Google for keywords like “SEO Sydney”. When you’re weighing up an Search Engine Optimisation agency it’s pretty important they can rank themselves in Google right?

Our SEOs are all experienced, having worked at a range of large Sydney digital marketing agencies on large brands like Unicef, iiNet, Chemmart, Wesfarmers, Suncorp Group, eBay, Harvey Norman and more.

We bring that enterprise and expert SEO know how to the small and medium businesses of Sydney. We care, we get results and we have been doing this a long time now -we're an SEO agency you can trust.

Finally, we run one of the top rated SEO podcast in the world called The SEO Show. If you're based in QLD, we also have a presence on the Gold Coast.

what time frame does good SEO take?

How long does it take to rank in Google? What is a realistic SEO results time frame?

As with a lot of things in SEO, the answer is – it depends.

It depends a lot on your industry, what your competitors are up to, what baseline you’re starting from, how much work your site needs done to it.

However, you’ll typically expect your Search Engine Optimisation campaign to take a 3 to 6 month period to really start working well. And why does SEO Sydney take so long? The main reason is that once the changes are made to your site, or once links are acquired, Google doesn’t discover them instantly.

It takes time for Google’s crawlers to find and notice the work that has been done, and then more time for that to flow through to improved rankings.

However, once you build momentum and hit “critical mass” with your links and content, the results can really start to ramp up.

We offer high quality and process driven services, in fact, we dare say we provide some of the best results to back it up. It does take time, but the results will make your SEO investment worth it.

SEO packages

Our Search Engine Optimisation services can be applied to your site piecemeal, giving you the ultimate in flexibility and options, but to get the most impact, an SEO package is the best option. Our team will work with you to determine the best options and services for your business. Each package is custom tailored to your business’s unique needs.

Already have a fantastic content writer, but need some help creating a solid local reputation, Local Digital’s marketing experts can help. Already have an ad specialist on staff? That’s fine! We’ll work with your current strategy to make it more effective. No matter what your current reputation is like, our Search Engine Optimisation packages will help you elevate your company’s reputation and boost your local impact to get you the right leads consistently.

Working with a limited budget may seem like a challenge for other Sydney-based marketing firms, but Local Digital believes everyone can benefit from a good SEO strategy. Since each package is tailored to your business, our strategists will work within your budget to make the most of each service. Search Engine Optimisation is no longer reserved for large corporations. We make it accessible to businesses of all sizes with convenient, customizable SEO packages.
