Our SEO strategy

We develop an SEO strategy by understanding your business goals and where your website currently ranks on Google. We combine this with intent-focused keyword research to create SEO forecasts and long-term campaign goals. Data, research and continual testing drive a successful SEO campaign. With this SEO methodology, our team have successfully increased visibility and revenue within our local SEO campaigns, as well as with clients across the UK.

A good SEO agency conducts keyword research, but a great SEO agency considers the intent behind what users are searching for. Understanding whether users want to make an enquiry or purchase or are simply looking for information means that the right people find your business. This ensures that your business receives a maximum return on investment.

Our data-driven SEO strategies consider the three core elements of SEO: Technical SEO, Relevance (content relevance) and Authority (backlinks from relevant websites). Considering these three elements, we create a bespoke SEO strategy determined by your website’s visibility and user experience. SEO is ever-evolving, so we make it a priority to stay up to date with the latest SEO trends, algorithm updates and practices to ensure that we continually outrank our client’s competitors. This approach is how we continue to be one of the best SEO agencies to work with.

SEO ranking factors

As a reputable Manchester SEO agency, we will never try to give you the ‘one size fits all’ approach. Our SEO consultants understand that data and regular research and testing drive a successful SEO campaign.

Currently, the most important ranking factors are:

  • Backlinks
  • Mobile usability
  • On-page optimisation
  • User experience
  • Content quality
  • Website loading speed

As Google continually tries to provide the best experience for users, this changes continually, which means your SEO strategy should change. All of the ranking factors above fall under the following three categories.

Work with us

On-Page SEO (Relevance)

We uncover your most valuable keyword ranking opportunities through in-depth keyword research and content audits.
This allows us to develop a robust on-page SEO strategy, considering title tags and headings, commercial content and blog content to improve your website’s relevance and ensure that the right users find your business.

Technical SEO (Technical)

Technical SEO is an important factor of an SEO campaign. Our SEO consultants conduct monthly technical SEO health audits to quickly identify and fix any technical issues that arise.
Domain Authority & Backlinks (Authority)

Building natural, authoritative backlinks will help you ahead in search engine rankings. But more importantly, it’s how our SEO experts will help you to stay ahead.

Our SEO consultants develop a bespoke backlink strategy that looks at competitor backlinks, the quality of your existing backlink profile and the type of links that are required to earn you 1st position rankings.

4. SEO content planning

You’re the industry experts. We’re the communication experts. We’ll spot content gaps, offer recommendations, and produce quality pieces. We’ll uncover opportunities to help your audience even more – and encourage them to become your customers.

Frequently asked SEO questions

You may be wondering what sets CandidSky apart from every other SEO agency. We make the complex simple. No buzzwords, no marketing jargon and absolutely no gimmicks. Just real results presented in a way that makes sense for you and your business. Plus, we focus on ‘the 20%’. In other words, we’ll help you discover where your company’s real value lies — the audience who converts. And once we’ve found that, the results will speak for themselves.

From bottomless brunch to secured loans, we get stuck in and work with any industry. But that doesn’t mean we’ll apply the same tactics to every campaign. Whatever your field of work, we’ll adjust our strategy around your industry. That means expert local optimisation for your branch of restaurants. That means flawless FAQs that pass every compliance check. And it means campaigns that deliver maximum results, every time.

Only you know what success means for your business. It could be more traffic. It could be more conversions. Or it could be something entirely unique. Before we get started, we’ll work with you to define your benchmarks. Ultimately though, we know your bottom line is what drives your company – so we’ll measure the success of your search engine optimization campaign by your return on investment with us.

We like to credit our impressive track record to our three pillars of SEO (technical, relevance, and authority, if you were intrigued). But what really sets our results apart from the rest is our data-driven approach. Before we work on any campaign, we’ll carry out detailed research. This means every single stage of our campaign will be totally tailored to your industry.

We’ll deliver monthly reports that succinctly summarise the changes we’ve made to improve your site. Your report will include any potential areas of growth we’ve spotted each month, along with what we’ve planned for the month ahead. We won’t bombard you with unnecessary information. Everything we report will be catered to your individual targets and goals – which means we can deliver the best possible results for you and your business.

We’ll track the success of your SEO campaign with your specific targets in mind. Whether you want a higher ranking or more traffic, we’ll track metrics that reflect your own goals. We understand your business is unique – so we’ll work with you to ensure we meet your targets.

In the past, we’ve carried out overseas SEO for a number of clients. While we specialise in local SEO, we’ll always create a strategy that caters to your audience’s needs – wherever they are in the world.

No matter how big or small your campaign is, communication is key to getting great results. We’ll keep you in the loop with at least one monthly call, plus a minimum of one face-to-face meeting per quarter.

You’ll have the chance to meet everyone who works on your campaign, either during our proposal or launch meeting. Because it’s always reassuring to put a face to a name.

Our 12-month fixed contracts are perfect for delivering results that last, while our 6-month rolling contracts offer more flexibility.

Just like everything we do, we keep our payment structure straightforward. When you work with us, we’ll agree on a monthly budget and a schedule that delivers maximum value for you.
