Our SEO process and methods

How we optimise your site

Technical SEO website audit

1. Website technical audit

We run a technical SEO audit and fix any flaws which may include:

  • Website speed.
  • Broken links.
  • Harmful links.
  • Pages not found (404 errors).
  • Pages with too many outgoing links.
  • Pages with not enough content.
  • Missing or poor meta data.
  • Missing Alt text.
  • Mobile-friendliness.
  • Duplicate content.
keyword research and competitor analysis

2. Keyword research and competitor analysis

  • We analyse your site and look at which phrases people are already using to find you.
  • We use these phrases and find similar ones using various pieces of software.
  • We also search for questions people are already asking which are related to your business.
  • All these phrases are added to our website reporting software to see how many clicks you receive and where you are ranking.
  • We benchmark your website against five of your competitors and analyse their websites too.
  • Initially, we target phrases which have a high search volume and low competition as well as local search terms.
  • We also search for phrases known as β€˜long-tail’ which can often result in the best enquiries.
website analysis of user's journey

3. In-depth analysis of your website users and their journey

  • We look at your web statistics, where users click and their journey through your site.
  • Using software we record live video and create heat maps.
  • These often highlight faults like hesitation and confusion.
  • This helps us update your site so it is easier for the visitor to find what they need and make contact.
  • Here is an example of a live recording of a website user interacting with one of our client’s websites.
Improve user experience and UI

4. Improve your website user experience (UX)

  • It is vital to position all important information where it is easy to find as visitors often only scan websites.
  • Making it easy to contact you (or find out more) is key as you only have a few seconds to gain your visitor’s trust.
  • Good descriptive text, appealing design, simple navigation and attractive images go a long way toward improving user experience.
  • We’ll give your site a personal touch because people β€˜buy from faces’ this is why the about us page is so popular.
  • We’ll add banners featuring your unique selling points and providing reasons to act.
  • We’ll add β€˜call-to-actions’ to every page to encourage visitors to make contact.
  • Website visitors are seeking information so we recommend including prices, photographs, videos, β€˜how-to’ guides and reviews.
  • Answering questions within your website will help provide the information your customers are seeking.
  • Providing answers will also increase the chance of being featured as a Google featured snippet which appear above 1st position.

5. Link building to improve your Domain Authority (DA)

  • Link building is as important as website content when optimising a website.
  • It is all about the quality (and not the quantity) poor quality links can harm your website’s rankings and credibility.
  • We seek out opportunities to create links to your site from reputable and relevant sites.
  • We’ll discover which websites your customers visit and look to place links there.
  • We’ll examine your competitor’s links to see if there are opportunities there too.
  • After examining your link profile we’ll disavow any harmful links using Google’s disavow tool.
we improve your local SEO

6. Improve your local SEO

  • If you would like enquiries from specific areas then we’ll improve how your website performs for these type of queries.
  • We’ll create area specific pages which are unique and don’t contain duplicate content (which is penalised by Google).
  • We’ll update your Google My Business listing, add additional business categories and send out review requests on your behalf.
  • Having more positive reviews will encourage more enquires and improve credibility.
  • Read our post on How to ask for Google My Business reviews.
we repeat processes improving SEO

7. Analyse and repeat stages 1 to 6

  • We continually analyse, refine and repeat stages 1 to 6.
  • SEO is continuous and just because you are in first position doesn’t mean you will stay there indefinitely.
  • So It is important to update your site regularly, continue to optimise it and strengthen your positions.

πŸ›’ More sales

Vizcom has worked with a number of my clients to improve their websites through search engine optimisation and has produced impressive results. Clients have reported much higher traffic to their sites and more sales. Vizcom demonstrates that SEO does not have to cost the earth and can be an excellent investment for many businesses.

πŸ€“ Knowledgeable

We’ve been working with Vizcom Design since late 2017 and contacted Dan after traffic to our site reduced significantly following a change in e-commerce providers. Dan is friendly, approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He’s been a great help to The Detailing Booth and in a short time Dan has produced some fantastic results which are highlighted in the monthly reports he sends us.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 Stars!

5 Stars! Because Daniel and Vizcom provide the level of service that many others are sadly lacking. Vizcom amalgamated 2 comprehensive sites for us in very good time and we were extremely happy with the result. They provided excellent advice always, and continue to do so. After 6 months of dealing with other companies, who badly let us down – Vizcom were left to pick up the pieces – and did so – marvellously without fuss and efficiency. We look forward to continue working with Vizcom to optimise our online presence and to make the most of the hard work already achieved. Highly recommended

🌟 Brilliant

What a difference Dan at Vizcom has made to our business. We are a small holiday park that has in the past done very little advertising. We approached Dan with a small budget in mind which he worked with us on to get the most gains from both our website and Facebook activity and advertising. We have seen a massive jump in enquiries some turning in to sales. Dan is brilliant to work with everything we discuss is done extremely quickly and with top quality. We have completed a redesign of our website and Dan has created Facebook page, advertising and advice on operating it to its best. Dan is very creative also helping us with a new logo which we are very happy with. We would absolutely recommend Dan and Vizcom to anyone looking into creative design and advertising etc. Thank you Dan!

πŸ’Ό Professional

The main areas that have impressed me have been the ability to explain technical subjects in plain English and in a down-to-earth fashion; fast and efficient service, i.e. being able to contact them easily via email and phone and getting a speedy response to any query; professional but friendly approach with customers, and finally they were very good value for money.
