If Google trusts your site enough to put it near the top of its search results your users instantly find your site more trustworthy

Why Choose Our Digital Marketing Services?

When I search for my business name on Google, I’m already #1

That’s a great start, but someone would need to know your business exists to be looking for you in the first place. What if they don’t know about your business but are looking for businesses like yours? Does your website show up in #1 if you instead search for some of the products and services you offer? Getting #1 for your business’s name is the easy part. SEO isn’t just about helping people find you online, it also about helping them discover you.

I don’t need SEO right now, we have enough leads at the moment

SEO takes time, so you don’t want to wait until you desperately need leads to start optimising your website. Remember, your competitors might have already started using SEO themselves and if they get a head start, you might soon see their website start to outrank yours on search engines. It's a lot more difficult trying to catch up than it is to lead the way. By optimising your website now, you’re helping improve your future performance.

We don’t need SEO, we get all our work through word of mouth

The first thing someone will do when they hear how great your company is from one of your existing customers is Google you! So, you should ensure that your website shows up when someone searches for your business by name – but why stop there? SEO can help you find customers from outside your immediate network, and while word of mouth leads can eventually run out, there are likely thousands of people online searching for products and services like yours.

Grow Your Brand With Local SEO Services in Brighton

Local searches now account for almost half of all Google searches. This means that query involved a business, service, or location near them (for example ‘electricians near me’ or ‘best Italian restaurant in Brighton’). This means being at the top of search locally, through either SEO or PPC is important.

The same data also tells us that most users searching for a local business intend to visit it within the next 24 hours. Owning your niche in local search can thus result in immediate footfall to your physical location.

Local SEO Isn’t Just an Option, It’s Essential For Small Businesses

•Most customers searching for local services will select a business from the first page of search results.
•2/3 of users who search for a local business will subsequently visit it in person.
•50% of them will visit in the business in less than 24 hours.

SEO For E-Commerce

SEO for e-commerce is not just based around increasing traffic to your site, but specifically – increasing traffic from your target consumers to your site.

You want profitable traffic for an audience that is interested in your products and services and has the disposable income to spend on them. We also aim to increase the percentage of your visitors that convert to sales.

How Do We Do It?

• Improving your product rankings in search results.
• Conducting thorough keyword research.
• Ensuring accurate, detailed listings for every product or service you supply.
• Analysing your store’s performance and the ‘sales funnel’.
• Identifying ‘dropping-off points’ where visitors leave the site.
• Ensuring ‘calls to action’ are placed appropriately on each page.
• Establishing ‘trust signals’ like SSLs and trusted payment methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Carden as my SEO agency in Brighton?

We are also a small business based in Brighton. That means we are more familiar with the local market and what is required to break through to local users. If you are a Brighton-based business looking for SEO services and you found this page online, it should suggest to you that we know how to match Brighton-based users with the services and products they are looking for.

Does SEO guarantee I will sell my product or service?

No, strictly speaking SEO doesn’t guarantee anything. If it is successful, search engine optimisation simply means that your site will rank higher in search engines. After a user clicks that link and lands on your website, what they do then is more dependant on other forms of marketing like how well you can sell the benefits of products and services. Our content writers and other marketing professionals can help with this aspect as well, but it is separate from SEO.

I want to rank outside of Brighton and go nationwide, is this possible?

Absolutely, SEO can be effective at any scale. However, the strategies that will be effective are quite different depending on whether you are targeting local, national or international users. International campaigns have to account for multiple languages as well as the higher levels of competition that accompany a larger addressable audience.

How long until I see my search engine rankings improve?

We would need to first analyse your website and its current ranking. If you speak to our team, our SEO specialists can perform a free SEO check on your website and let you know our estimation of how long it would take to see results. The short answer though, is that it any changes will not be immediate and you need to think of SEO in terms of weeks and months, rather than days.

Do you have to pay Google to rank higher in search results?

With pay-per-click (PPC) advertising you can pay Google to display your website above search results for specified keywords, but that is different to SEO. SEO is strictly about increasing your performance in ‘organic’ (unpaid) search results. Many companies will use a combination of sponsored PPC search results and website optimisation for organic search to capture as much traffic as possible.

Do you offer local SEO services for businesses in Brighton?

Yes, we offer local SEO services for local businesses. Our local SEO services are focused on getting people to physically visit your business/shop as well as landing on your website. Google My Business optimisation plays a key role in this, which increases the likeliness that your business will show up for local searches (e.g. “florists near me”).
