A cast of talented SEO specialists

Our Values

We have Google-y eyes for SEO

Founded by Harry Sanders in 2015, StudioHawk is a specialised agency dedicated to search engine optimisation. Our SEO services are responsive, ethical, authentic, and delivered by a genuinely passionate and diverse team of SEO specialists in Melbourne and London. We are experts how SEO works. The journey of StudioHawk has been on the BBC World News, Forbes, SmartCompany, and dozens of other publications.

There’s a reason why we were named SEMRush’s agency of the year, as well as Optus Media Marketing and Advertising Business of the Year: it’s in our proven track record. StudioHawk clients reach their SEO goals and maintain an average of 300% ROI. How? We use white hat SEO techniques to make sure your site succeeds and isn’t at risk from Google penalties. Over 300 campaigns, and never a single penalisation or manual action due to our work.

When we aren’t doing SEO, we are contributing to the community through initiatives like the SEO Meetup which we help organise with over 2000 members, sit on the board of AWIA (Australian Web Industry Association) helping to regulate and oversee SEO as it matures as an industry. We also created a training platform called the Hawk Academy aiming to educate people about SEO and bring more people into the industry. You can also find some of the whitepapers we build to help guide initiatives, as well as regularly speaking at some of the biggest SEO conferences around the world on our speaking page.

Embrace Opportunity

The SEO insights we offer are all about creating opportunity. To rise above your competitors, get in front of the right customers and carve out a unique space on the web. We are so confident that you will see the opportunity and results that we have month to month agreements, and don’t believe in long lock-in contracts like agencies that can’t back themselves.

In the digital space as well as in the day-to-day. We won’t work on campaigns we don’t think we can achieve results for, not everyone is in good shape for SEO and we turn away dozens of campaigns a month, roughly 50% of all enquiries we get. We don’t take shortcuts – we’re with you for the long game.

We make SEO success affordable and give you full campaign visibility plus comprehensive monthly reporting. You’ll know how your website is performing and the results you’re getting in a way you’ll understand. We don’t just do the work, we educate you so that you understand.

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We want you to take you to SEO places you’ve never been before AND help you enjoy the journey as it unfolds. We’re here to help you find a better way to do business.

Our Process

The StudioHawk Process

Icons / Process / RankingsCreated with Sketch.


With an optimised website, rankings are projected to improve. Our goal is to see your site on Google’s first page for all your targeted keywords so you can capture and convert targeted traffic into customers.

Icons / Process / VisitsCreated with Sketch.


Strong search engine rankings directs quality, targeted traffic to your site. When your website is found on Google by a user searching for targeted keywords, there’s a great chance this consumer is already interested in what your site has to offer.

Icons / Process / ConversionsCreated with Sketch.


A conversion happens when a visitor to a website performs an action that helps you achieve a goal. Obviously, the more visitors a site has, the more opportunities it has to convert. Traffic from organic search is proven to be the easiest to convert compared to other traffic referral channels.
