Services / SEO

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization - basically getting your site to rank highly when someone searches for a search term, usually using google or a similar search engine.

Proper, specifically targetted SEO costs a fair bit - it can be hundreds of pounds a month. It is a time-consuming, repetetive process, which is why it costs so much.  Anyone who promises you a "full SEO service" and isn't charging a hefty monthly rate is probably not doing it properly.  

At Sprucemoose, I lay the foundations for more serious off-page SEO work.  Over the years I have developed an on-page SEO checklist that I follow when building every site - from CMS generated sitemaps to adding social sharing meta tags on every page - each step is taken with a firm SEO strategy in mind. I can recommend an SEO partner to you if you want to take the next step, but this will not be covered in the site quote/cost for your Sprucemoose site.  I specialise in building SEO friendly sites - for proper off-page SEO I will defer to the experts in that field.
