Our Local SEO Leeds Services

We offer a wide range of SEO Services that draw on our specialist knowledge and expertise.

Keyword Research

Discover What People Search

We use specialist software to identify keywords that will drive visitors to your site. For instance, we look at what users would search to find your products and services. We then assess these terms on their monthly search volume and how easy or difficult they are for your site to realistically rank for. 

For example, the search term ‘SEO Company Leeds’ gets over 400 searches per month. We rank no 1 on Google for this keyword because of the quality of our site and the content we produce around that phrase.

Backlink Building

Elevate Site Authority

A backlink is simply a link on another website that links to your site. They are a vital part of our local SEO Leeds process because they give your site authority. Think of them like a citation in an essay. The more citations you have, the more credible and trustworthy your work is. It works exactly the same with backlinks. We identify and implement opportunities for backlink building using a variety of techniques such as writing and distributing local press releases or adding your site to local directories.

Content Creation

Provide Value

Once we identify your business’s ideal search terms, it’s time to incorporate these keywords into content for your site. We carry out an in-depth review of the site and discuss what kind of content suits your site best. For example, you might want to highlight certain services or topics, add to an existing blog or service page or create a new page. Our in-house copywriters will then create engaging copy around those keywords that will add value to your site visitors.

On–Page Optimisation

Make Google Like You

After content creation, it’s time for our web developers to put it on page and optimise it for SEO. This includes making sure that the page loads fast and is easy to navigate. They make sure that the content is visually appealing and drives traffic to service or contact pages – wherever you’d like them to go.

What Is Local SEO Leeds?

As the top local SEO Leeds company, we think the advantages of a local SEO strategy for your business are exceptional. Here’s a quick recap on the fundamentals:

SEO or ‘Search Engine Optimisation’ is how well you optimise your web pages to appear in a search engine such as Google.

Forget paid ads such as PPC, are you driving targeted traffic to your website organically? Driving organic traffic to your website through search results is essential to the success of your business.

Forgot your other traffic streams like paid ads, social media or referrals, driving organic traffic to your website through search engines is crucial to develop a strong online presence and increase your digital exposure.

If you’re looking for noticeably significant results, embarking in a local SEO strategy should be your #1 priority.

Great local SEO means ranking first for local search terms in search engines. Think about it, when was the last time you visited page 2 of Google? Our local SEO Leeds service helps you to establish a lasting impression with searchers, allowing you to come across as the front runner for your industry in your area.

Whatever your business goals are, local SEO will help you reach them organically.

The Benefits Of SEO

Get Found!

There are over 63,000 searches per second on Google on any given day. How can you be sure that the right people can find your services? Your webpage appears at the top of the Google search results when Google thinks your content matches the searcher’s intent. By appearing on the first page of a search engine for your ideal search terms, you can drive lots of organic traffic to your site.

Ask yourself: when was the last time you scrolled on to page 2 of Google? Local SEO services UK get you found!

It doesn’t matter where your company is based around the UK. We can target several specific locations or one regional area – we will discuss location choice based on your experience and our specialist research. So, if you are looking for local SEO services London or local SEO services Manchester, we can help!


There are 2 key elements of search marketing: PPC (Pay Per Click) or SEO. PPC are paid ads that appear right at the top of your search results and will contain the word ‘Ad’ in the top-left corner. PPC can be an effective but costly way to drive traffic to your site and is ideal for fast results.

However, SEO is an organic, longer-lasting strategy. It may take much longer to establish your business on the first page of Google but is cost-effective in the long run. It is much easier to maintain and optimise your organic ranking than start from scratch once budget for PPC runs out.

Improve Your User Experience

Google has confirmed that it uses around 200 ranking factors when it determines where to rank your webpage. Many of these factors are based around usability and accessibility. Google knows that if your site is easy to use and contains valuable content, it is much more likely to engage the user. It takes factors such as loading time, use of visuals and well-structured copy into account. An SEO strategy helps to maintain and develop site usability and create a great user experience which is more likely to generate leads and conversions.

Raise Brand Awareness

Even if people don’t purchase from your site the first time they visit you or view you in search results, they are much more likely to remember your brand name and relevant services. This is particularly effective for local SEO Leeds as an increasing number of searchers use Google to find local results before they visit a physical premise or buy online.

Increase Revenue

The higher your website appears in search engine results, the higher the number of traffic to your site. As a result, your business will gain leads and ultimately, conversions.


Businesses that appear on the first page of Google establish a sense of trust with their visitors. As Google ranks your website on how well it matches the users search intent, your business appears more credible the higher your site is ranked.

How Does A Local SEO Leeds Strategy Work?

Google uses over 200 ranking factors to decide how high your site should rank in its search results. Its aim is to provide users with the most useful results based on their search terms which is why a well-built website with quality content that is optimised for SEO is essential if you want to seriously rank on Google. 

Local SEO helps local customers find your business and your services. Not only does a high search result ranking for your ideal keywords mean a big increase in traffic and leads, it can also drive visitors to your physical premises if you have one.
