Journey with Us
Let’s get you on the path to true SEO success
Many digital agencies claim to ‘know SEO’ – but our cast of experts live and breathe it, it’s not just one of our service offerings, it IS our service offering. If you want to be found online, it takes more than just the basics of SEO (even though that’s a great place to start). We optimise websites for technical SEO, pioneered the DIRT-y SEO technique, and we’re the Casanova of backlinking. Soaring to new heights (aka improving positions, traffic, and conversions) is easier when we’re part of your team.
I have been working closely with StudioHawk for the past few months, and the results have been amazing! Without their guidance and support, I would’ve undoubtedly been unable to obtain first page rankings for the keywords ‘tutor’, ‘tutors’ and ‘tutoring’ – all of which are ultra-competitive keywords. Thanks, guys!
Our organisation has worked with StudioHawk for the past six months. We have seen our online presence and conversions go from strength-to-strength as a direct result of their guidance, knowledge, and industry relationships. They’re organised, professional, and deliver to a very high standard and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Got A Question? Check Out Our SEO FAQs
We’ve answered commonly asked questions clients have. If you have a question that we haven’t listed, ask away!
You’ll start to see improvements in your ranking within the first couple of months. That doesn’t mean page 1 of SERP, but you will begin your climb soon.
To be honest, this is a loaded question. People want to know how long until I hit rank #1. The answer is usually around 6 months, but this is not totally accurate. We can get you onto page one of SERP in 6 months, but ranking #1 might be longer.
Many factors determine 1st place, including what your competitors are doing. Focus more in good rankings on page #1, which we’ll get you.
One of the reasons StudioHawk is so popular is because its founder, Harry, wanted to do SEO different to what he had seen in the market place. Crazy monthly fees, lock-in contracts, no communication with the SEO agency for months on end, so you don’t know if the money you’re spending is working.
You want an SEO agency with no lock in fees. If you think what we’re doing isn’t working, you can leave.
You want an SEO agency who speaks to you whenever you need, and presents monthly reporting to you.
You want an SEO agency with a proven history of success, and some pretty big industry awards thrown in there too.
The short answer- long term strategy.
The longer answer- good SEO work involves many facets which build in effectiveness over time. Backlink strategies, content strategies, competitor analysis, and more.
These strategies can change over time with market trends, customer search intents and more. Your competitors could change up their strategies, you may want to target different keywords or long tail keywords. You may want to increase content for your website.
Suffice to say, it is a long term strategy which has even longer term benefits for your business.
A backlink is when another website links back to your website. It is a digital referral.
Backlinks can be great for helping you rank and increase your Page Authority (PA), or they could be rubbish links which Google could penalise you for.
In the early days of the internet Google would judge based on the number of links leading to your site, so there were ‘link farms’ where you could buy thousands of backlinks.
Now it is about quality, not quantity. A backlink will give you ‘link juice’, where a site gives you some of their PA to help you rank.
For more details on backlinks and their benefits, check out our blog post here.
It could be argued that content is the most important factor in an SEO strategy. While backlinks are important, content is something which you can have significant control over.
You can choose how many blogs you post per month, how long they are and what keywords you want to include.
You can decide how much copy you have for product pages and category pages.
And the best thing about this content is- it will always be on your website, doing its magical SEO thing, for as long as it is live and online.

We think one of the most important things you want to look for in an SEO agency is transparency and honesty. You don’t want to be taken for a very expensive ride by people who promise the world and then deliver, whatever is the opposite.
You want an agency who provides you with monthly reports and updates. This way you know the money you’re investing is bringing results. And you want those reports to make sense and not be in technical babbles which confuses you.
You want to look for an agency that has quantifiable results and a history to back up their promises.
Check out our blog post for more tips on what to ask before hiring an SEO agency for your business.
We take on clients who can envision success, who want to work with us, and who understand that what we will do for them will work, but it will take some time.
We have large clients, small business clients, medium clients, all of whom are looking to invest in the long-term growth of their business.
We take on clients who are open minded, who listen to the advice we provide and who give good feedback to us.
We take on clients who ask good questions and enquire about what we do.
The first way to tell if we are delivering good results to you is through the monthly reports we deliver. We go through the reports with you, show you the positive growth and show you the areas which need more work on.
The second way you can tell if what we’re doing is working for you is if you notice an increase in traffic to your website, an increase in sales through your website, or if you get your friends to search for you by certain keywords, you’re higher up the rankings than you were when we started together. We set up goal tracking so you can see the numbers match up with what we’re telling you.
In dollar figures? We have monthly plans from as low as $500 per month. This will get you an SEO health check of your site, a content strategy, backlinks and more. We deliver this to you in a monthly report, and it is up to you to action the report.
You can pay more and get more, of course, but the real question is- how much will it cost if you don’t focus on SEO?
The lower your ranking on search results means the less organic traffic to your website. The less authoritative backlinks pointing to your website the lower your Page Authority.
You could say it will cost you more to NOT get involved with SEO. Start investing with us and you will begin to get a positive ROI.
The short answer for this question is, we’ll measure it for you and show you the results in the monthly report.
But if you want to keep tabs on this yourself, the first thing you need to do is install Google Analytics for your website.
The first way to check ROI is through Conversion Tracking. This allows you to focus on all the revenue streams you have, measure how many people have visited these revenue portals, and from where, and then see if they spent money.
Through the SEO work you will do with us, you’ll notice the organic search results, and visitors from such results, will increase. With some good on-site copy you’ll also see more of those visitors clicking BUY.
This shows a positive ROI.

Tomorrow. Do a Google search for something you sell but don’t complete writing the search. Look at the suggestions Google gives you to complete your search. Write them down.
Now start writing and posting blog content which answers those Google queries, and includes those keywords and BANG! You’ve started an SEO Campaign.
Certainly we can add a lot of technical and strategic advice to you, even do the content writing for you.
The sooner you get on it the sooner you will see results.
