How to choose a local SEO company in Melbourne to grow your business

What is SEO?

In case you are still wondering what SEO is, SEO is the process of improving your website’s visibility on search engines. Mainly Google and a little bit of Bing.

What is website visibility?

Website visibility is how many times your website show up on Google when a potential customer looks for a product or service that you sell.

Eg: If you are a wedding photographer mainly offer services to customers in Melbourne, then your website should come up when someone search for “wedding photographers in Melbourne” or “wedding photography Melbourne”

Why can’t Google show my website without me doing any SEO?

Google can only show ten businesses on first page of Google Search results. So Google needs to select who are those ten businesses out of a large list of businesses selling the same product or service.

How long does it take to do SEO before my website show up in Google?

It usually takes about 3 months before you will see any improvements. Your website will first start to appear in Google for your business name (this could happen within weeks if not days) after that your website will start to appear in Google for long phrases eg: “wedding photographers in Melbourne south east” (this could happen within first 2-3 months) then you will start to appear for more shorter phrases like wedding photography Melbourne (could take 6-12 months)

How much should I pay for SEO?

Different SEO companies in Melbourne charge different rates, based on their experience and their previous successes.  This could start as low as AU$100/month to thousands of dollars a month. It’s always a good idea to focus on the return than the spend. As yourself how much would you like to spend to make a dollar?

How to verify a SEO company?

Main thing is to check their previous successes and speak to their current customers. Ask them for a list of keywords that their customers appearing in Google at the moment and reference check with those customers.
