Frequently Asked Questions
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of improving the ranking of your business in Google’s organic results. When done well, it has the potential to dramatically increase the number of visitors to your website, which in turn improves your bottom line.
At Bonfire, we pride ourselves on our data-driven SEO methodology, which we believe sets the benchmark as the best SEO Perth and Australia has to offer.
Unfortunately, there are a number of SEO agencies out there who don’t play fair, often using illicit techniques in an attempt to manipulate search engines. These techniques and the SEO agencies that use them should be avoided at all costs as they can cause long term damage to your online presence.
To avoid getting locked into a contract with one of ‘these’ SEO agencies, Google has provided an agenda to follow when interviewing and selecting an SEO provider.
These are the steps Google recommends brands take when choosing an SEO company:
- Conduct a two-way interview – Ask relevant questions to ensure they’re sincerely interested in you and the success of your business.
- Check their references – The agency should offer you a list of clients willing to talk to you about their experience. If they can’t offer this, you should be cautious.
- Request an audit – A good agency does their homework. Ask them to complete an audit, identifying any potential website issues and how they suggest to improve them, as well as what impact these changes are estimated to have on your digital campaign.
- Decide if you want to hire – Discuss with other decision makers within your business whether they think this agency is a good choice. Before deciding on an SEO agency, make sure all internal stakeholders are on board.
In addition to the hiring process recommendations, here are a few useful insights on SEO basics as well as common misconceptions.
- “SEO is not black magic” – SEO isn’t magic and it won’t work overnight. If an agency is promising instant rankings, avoid them, as they’re likely to be practicing bad SEO – this could cause irreversible long term damage to your domain and could greatly affect your digital standing with Google.
- SEO suggestions should align with Google best practices – Ask the SEO to corroborate their strategy recommendations with supporting documents from Google (e.g. an article from their help centre, a Googler response in their forum or a video).
- Good SEO aims to improve the searchers’ entire experience – Recommended changes should aim to not only create a search-friendly site, but also a user-friendly site.
- Quality SEOs will be genuinely invested in your business – They will be interested in learning about your business from a holistic standpoint and genuinely care about your business goals, customers and other existing marketing efforts.
- Good SEO takes time – Allow four months to a year before you expect to start seeing real search results from strategy implementation. There are a lot of components in a good SEO strategy, and unfortunately, no magic tricks to make them work faster.
- An SEO’s potential is only as high as the quality of your business or website – Investing in a user-friendly website will significantly help every SEO strategy implemented. You can’t build a home without a solid foundation.
In Australia, SEO prices generally reflect both the level of expertise and the amount of time spent on your campaign.
While cost is obviously important, the end goal of SEO is to generate a positive return for your business – so it’s important to select an SEO company that has the experience and a strong track record of generating results.
The danger of focusing on price to make your decision, is that you often end up at the bottom end of the market, with providers that outsource a large amount their work or operate at a loss to establish themselves and win new business.
We’ve seen countless examples of ‘cheap’ SEO campaigns and the long-term cost to the business can be huge. Recovering from a penalty or fixing past mistakes can often take months of work and the lost revenue during this time can be worth thousands to a business owner.
At Bonfire, our focus for your SEO campaign is return on investment. Our Perth SEO experts have over 20 years of experience and thousands of campaigns under their belt, generating a real-world impact on the bottom line of businesses across a wide range of industries. We encourage you to read reviews, do your research and make an informed decision before investing in any digital marketing services.
SEO is a mid-to-long term strategy designed to assist in generating higher Google search rankings. The key is consistency and quality and not immediacy of results. This measured approach helps your business get ahead of competitors in Google search results.
A secondary consideration is also the quality of the SEO work completed behind the scenes. Whilst in some unique cases immediate rankings are possible, most clients can expect positive movement in rankings for select keywords after the fourth month. The real results across all selected keywords in your campaign start taking shape after month four to 12.
Bonfire has been proven to consistently deliver, driving a positive return on investment on search results over the mid-to-long term.
