With more and more people searching on the Internet for products and services, you need to ask yourself;
- Are my target audience searching for my products and services online?
- If so, what are the keywords they might use to find me?
- Where am I ranked for those keywords?
- Are they clicking on my link?
- Are they accomplishing what I want them to carry out when they visit my site?
These are fundamental questions any smart business owner will ask themselves when they look at their online presence.
Search engines like Google use a step by step procedure that tell computers how to complete assigned tasks. Google's algorithm does the work for you by searching through web pages that contain the keywords you used to search. It then assigns a rank to each page based on many different factors. Higher ranked pages appear further up in Google's search engine results page (SERP), meaning that the best links relating to your search query are theoretically the first ones Google lists.

Before a sound SEO strategy can be implemented a consultation must be set up with our clients so we can get to know their online business objectives. It’s important for us that a relationship of trust is built from the start and that the client has a clear understanding of the SEO process. We are then in a much better position to carry out a thorough SEO Audit of their companies website and give them the most cost effective options on how to proceed in achieving higher rankings on Google.
What does our SEO Audit involve?
This differs amongst many agencies but here at Dara Creative we include detailed information on your online marketplace, competitor analysis, keyword research, site infrastructure analysis and recommendations on strategic options that are available.
