How SEO Works
It sounds easy, it’s not rocket science but it does require research, patience and persistence.
It starts with understanding the words and phrases that your customers are likely to use when they are looking for the services you provide or the products you sell
These words/phrases need to be integrated in to your website in the places the search engines like to look
The rest of your site needs to use these words and phrases, synonyms, well names images, Alt Text etc.

How long does SEO take?
It all takes time, both to research and implement and for Google and the other search engines to take notice. Anything up to 6 months for a new project, and that’s just the start.
I provide SEO services for Swindon, Wiltshire and across the South-West. However, I’m not limited by geography and have worked with businesses across the country.
SEO starts from £180.00+VAT per month, depending on the nature of the project so, if you would like to see your business rank higher in the search engines read on.
