We have years of experience in optimising web pages on a variety of platforms, to lower bounce rates and increase conversions.

SEO is a strategy to earn organic traffic and visibility on a national and global scale, whereas local SEO is an attempt to earn this visibility in a certain location.

Google indexes information about local businesses and presents them above the organic search results. This is called the maps pack and it is a great way to attract patients in the local area.

Both use many of the same techniques but Local SEO uses extra techniques such as Google Business Profile Optimisation, attracting reviews and building local citations.


Another common SEO mistake that companies make, is not producing enough relevant and consistent content. Content is a fantastic way to gain more traffic to your site, by engaging more with your audience, it is essentially an opportunity for you to communicate with your audience and humanise your brand.

Content is also a brilliant way to help with ranking on Google. When Google crawls your page, it is looking for information within your content that shows you are able to answer a user’s search query. If you are showing your audience and Google that you are an expert in your chosen field, then you are building trust with your customers and authority with Google at the same time.

The use of internal and external links will help rank your website higher on search engines. Internal links also help guide your readers to other useful parts of your website. External links give your site more credibility, making it a source of authority.

You want to avoid flooding your pages with links, however. Use them properly and sparingly, ensuring readers are directed to relevant pages depending on what they are reading. A couple of authority links are far better than multiple weak, irrelevant ones.

Search engines prioritise websites that run well on mobile, as they want all of their users to have the best experience, whether they are on their phones or laptops. Due to this, you must make sure your site is optimised for mobile users.

SEO services are a number of techniques used to improve your rankings for local searches/

These could include Google Business Profile optimisation, Citation <anagement, Reputation Monitoring, Local PR coverage, Mobile Optimisation and Content creation.

All of these combined will help local business to rank higher in the search engine results and in the local map pack. 

PPC (Pay Per Click) covers a wide variety of paid advertising opportunities which SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) cannot cover. Broadly speaking, there is no direct comparison.

However, a Paid Search is a similar strategy to SEO. In a Paid Search campaign, the advertiser is bidding and paying for clicks on ads at the top of the search results. With SEO, pages are ranked in the organic listings.

Also within Google Ads, eCommerce stores can invest in a Google Shopping campaign. Google Shopping shows Product Ads at the top of search results – there is no real “organic SEO” opportunity of note which competes with Google Shopping Ads.

PPC campaigns also include Facebook Ads, YouTube Ads and Google Display Ads, amongst others, none of which compete with an SEO strategy directly.

In summary, the most successful eCommerce Marketing strategies;

  1. Use a combination of PPC campaigns for top-of-funnel audience reach and engagement, along with a Content / SEO strategy. 
  2. Use a combination of Paid Search Campaigns, Google Shopping and SEO to get a rank category and product pages, attracting clicks and visitors when they’re more likely to buy.

There is no direct link between organic rankings and having a paid Google Ads account.

However, there are several benefits to consider:

  1. Customers often cross between channels when discovering your brand and when they’re searching for the product or service that you sell. Being present in both organic search and in paid search can have a significant impact on overall performance
  2. Many of the optimisation techniques used for SEO equally support the Google Ads Quality Score (page speed, page relevance etc.) and as such, it is likely that such investment would benefit both Google Ads performance and SEO performance.

Without optimising your campaigns, your ads will not be relevant to your audience and will not be visible in the search results. This optimisation continues as more performance data is available, so we’re constantly checking and optimising performance.

There are a few primary types of Google Ads campaigns:

  • Search Network – these campaigns are usually text ads which show on the search results page.
  • Display Network – the ads for Google Display Network campaigns are usually images and appear when users visit other websites or apps.
  • Video – these short video ads show at the beginning or during YouTube videos.

Yes, Google Ads does issue refunds. You’ll see regular credits in your account for invalid clicks (those which are the result of accidental clicks or of what Google considers click fraud) and sometimes for overspend if Google has spent more than the budget you set.

The rank (position) your Google Ads achieve for each keyword is dependent on an auction every time a user searches Google.

Ad rank is a factor of financial bid x quality score – therefore a higher quality score should increase ad rank and/or decrease the average cost you pay for each click.

There are multiple factors which make up the Google Ads Quality Score, such as;

  1. Ad relevance to the search term used on Google by your customer
  2. Landing page relevance to the search term – Google crawls your landing pages to check this regularly
  3. The customer experience on your website – fast page load times, content layout and other factors
  4. Your Historic Click Through Rate (CTR) for the keyword and the associated ad.

Within each Google Ads campaign, you can set a daily budget which is then averaged over a monthly period. The actual spend can fluctuate from day to day, but Google should never spend more than that monthly budget.

How much you will need to pay for each click will depend on the auction which runs every time a user searches Google. Whilst you can set a maximum cost per click (depending on your Bid Strategy), the actual cost required for each click will depend on the level of competition for each search term or keyword, in that user’s location.

Our team can complete research for you and confirm the potential budget you could spend for each campaign and a realistic return you should be aiming for.
