So having a website is of the utmost importance to any business, large or small. You should think of your website as the online version of your shop front. You could have the best looking window display in the world but if its hidden away in a Leeds back alley somewhere then no one is going to find it.

Similarly with your website, according to research, 91.5% of traffic to websites is from the first page of Google. therefore, if your business website is not on page 1 of Google for your products, or services, you might as well not have a website as potential customers are not going to find you and you are losing money to your competitors that rank ahead of you.

  • I met Keith at the Entrepreneurs Network in Leeds. Like everyone else on the planet, I wanted to be on page 1. His knowledge on this topic is extraordinary and a few weeks ago I was delighted to see I was on page 2 from following his advice. I attended his Google course recently and I'm now on page 1! Yes it's took some time (a lot faster with Keith's knowledge) but so worth it. My favourite thing he said was the best place to hide a dead body is page 2 of Google! Keith is a lovely person too and a pleasure to work with.

Do You Have The Time To Be An SEO Expert?

When running a business, a business owners time is best utilised doing what they do best,  running their business and not trying to learn how to become an SEO expert. They might be thinking that if they do it themselves then they will save money. But they need to ask the following questions:

  • Who will be looking after their business while they are learning to become an SEO Expert?

Becoming an SEO Expert is not something that anyone can learn in 5 minutes, its a time consuming and complex process. The SEO Expert at Best Business Development has been in the industry for over 20 years and understand what is required to help you dominate page one of the search engines.

Have you the necessary SEO Consultant skill set?

When it comes to local SEO services,  optimising your website is only a small part of it, there are hundreds of criteria that Google alone uses to analyse a website to determine its position in the search engines results pages (SERP). Also, the criteria used are constantly changing as Google, Yahoo and Bing change and improve their ranking algorithms. The questions a DIY SEO consultant needs to ask himself are:

  • Do they understand the current ranking criteria?
  • Will they be able to keep up with the changes as they occur as well as keep up with their business requirements?
  • Do they understand how to research the most beneficial keywords used by potential customers when looking for the products or services provided by the company?

Our SEO Consultant understands keyword research and is familiar with all the relevant criteria and is continuously keeping up to date with any changes the search engine companies make and adapting his methods accordingly.

Can You Negotiate The Local SEO Minefield?

When it comes to it Search Engine Optimisation is a minefield. This is where most business owners get it wrong because they don't have a map to guide them through the minefield. There are a number of pitfalls the have to be avoided at all costs. If a business owner who is trying to do their own SEO in Leeds and is not aware of exactly what they are doing and make a mistake, they can fall foul to one of the many pitfalls.

The SEO Consultant at Best Business Development understands all the pitfalls and how to avoid them, and even how to recover from them should a website have become penalised due to bad SEO services been done on it previously.

Keyword Research By SEO Company Leeds!

Most business owners are biased about their business and think they know best when it comes to what they need on their website. However this can lead to problems as the old adage goes "you can't see the wood for the trees". One of the main problems is when it comes to selecting the keywords that potential customers will use to search for their products or services. The keyword phrases that potential customers search for are usually not the same keyword phrases that a business owner will believe them to be.

Our SEO Expert will carefully research to find the terms most commonly used by potential customers when searching. He will also analyse the  competition to discover any search terms that might be of benefit. This ensues that the right keyword phrases are used in the optimisation of the website and the other strategies he will be using.

As I said before Search Engine Optimization is a time consuming and complex procedure which should not be underestimated and if a business owner is investing all of their time trying to become an SEO Consultant, then who is looking after their business?

The bottom line is if a business owner is serious about their business and their online marketing then they need an experienced and knowledgeable SEO Expert with the correct local SEO services that can take their website and their other digital properties and help them dominate page one.
