With a decade of SEO consulting in London and the UK markets, I have helped many sites of all shapes and sizes improve their search visibility and significantly increase sales. From training with freelancers to years of continued and consistent results, engagement, search visibility and full web property management with corporations and brands.
Video conference SEO training – 100% Covid-19 safe
Coronavirus – Like you I am now counting the days to our next face to face meeting or training session. I’m working as normal and supporting all clients via email, phone or video call. Including as always virtual meetings, online SEO training and WordPress SEO training with multi location video conferencing.
I have a varied portfolio and I’m extremely reliable
Some of my clients are reserved and require NDAs, which I’m more than happy to provide. Naturally, I only work with you if you have a great product, service or brand already, or promising startup one. In other words, I’m probably one of the best, most dedicated SEO consultants in London, however, SEO is not substitute for a good business but it can be a great complement to it!
SEO Consulting London
You can benefit from just one aspect of my services such as an SEO audit or devising a strategy that you can implement yourself.
My SEO process consists of three stages, audits, strategy, implementation and there’s additional training if that is the appropriate fit for you, either as an individual or for your team.
In the initial analytical phase, we look at technical SEO factors, your content including keyword research and your promotion, which includes your social media presence and local SEO, as well as your link graph (the links from the web to your site).
We also audit your tracking and reporting and will set it up where there is none and automate it wherever possible if one is in place. That will mostly be Google Analytics and Google Search Console, but we can surely go well beyond that.

On-Site SEO: Looks at current content and keywords usage, the relevancy and difficulty of keywords in the business context, competitor landscape as well as the history of the site. It usually develops into a better content and keyword strategy and provides the bare bones of SEO guidelines for writers and content uploaders.
We also explore keyword research from GSC (Search Console) and a sample of new keyword research. Additionally, we look at user experience (UX) content improvements, the relevance of content and use of keywords. Competitors sample data and analysis is also usually harvested and included within initial SEO audit and the ongoing strategy.

SEO strategy consulting
The level of involvement will vary from just strategy and advice or training on producing SEO focused content for a small website owner, to a full schedule content strategy with monthly, weekly or even daily blog post or article creation, publication and promotion.
Fix or provide guidance on fixing code and technical issues and URL structure, depending on your site setup and type of CMS (content management system).
We also devise a safe link acquisition/building strategy that does not compromise your site.
I have in place a number of collaborators that complement my skills in all areas of SEO, web design and content creation that I can tap into and I’m equally comfortable work with any members of your own team or third party companies and freelancers.
High-level strategic areas
- Technical SEO
- Site structure
- Content, keywords and topics
- Link profile, acquisition/building
Implementation work can be carried out by myself and my team or as consultancy with your own team.
We implement technical changes that consist of site speed, code optimisation and URL structure as found in the audit and outlined in the strategy.
We optimise existing content to use keywords and topics as identified in the content audits and outlined in the content strategy in line with your business goals. Of course, this is just half the equation and in most cases, you will benefit from the creation of new content to maximise the use of keywords and provide useful information to your users on your topic, this will help to differentiate you from your competitors, and raise the authority of your site.
Link acquisition and link building as well as social and outreach will be an important part of most strategies, but I can’t stress enough that not all links are created equal and apparent quick results may become problematic later on, this means you will need a strategic approach in line with the lifetime goals of your site taken into account.
Some of my clients have been with me for many years.
Pretty much as before, there have been some major changes in 2018 and 2019 with https, the mobile-first index and the advance of AI. However, the basis of SEO and SEO recovery seat on the same pillars of common sense and best practices as before.
I will also provide you with tailored training programmes that can vary from a 2 hour one-off individual session to a complete weekly, or monthly bespoke programme, where we meet face to face at your office, workplace, favourite coffee shop or hotel. You can also work at my Old Street office, this carries an additional fee.
SEO Training in London or elsewhere can be a complement to my SEO consulting services offered above or as a stand alone to enrich your current skill set, team workshops are also available.
How is SEO priced?
I offer three models, monthly retainer (our most popular), one-off cost for SEO audits, strategy or other services including training and an hourly basis model.
Do you charge setup fees?
No, setup of various kinds happens usually in month one with audit and critical changes from day one.
How long are your contracts?
I offer a simple monthly rollover agreement. I recommend a minimum of 3, ideally 6+ month engagement for best results, but you can cancel anytime. Head for the contact page.
How long does SEO take to work?
In most cases a three to six/twelve month timeline is the most realistic timeframe for significant results. In cases of no previous SEO work, site migrations gone wrong or a sudden drop in rankings, SEO recovery or first-time results may be possible in as short a period as a month or two depending on the severity of the issues found and the opportunities to recover and grow,.
What is your approach to SEO?
I am a great advocate of staying within Google guidelines and avoid black hat techniques such as PBNs. I have extensive experience in recovering sites from such practices.
Do you guarantee SEO results?
No, I do not! And nor should anyone else. If they do it is time for you to look somewhere else. I do guarantee obstinate commitment and dedication. Get in touch NOW.
Can you help with Structured Data?
Yes head for the contact page. Google is making big strides into Voice Search and Structured Data as part of those efforts is the new black in SEO. This is likely to be even more so in 2020.
