We worked with the team at StudioHawk for a technical SEO and Digital PR campaign for a product launch in the e-mobility landscape. They exceeded our expectations, delivering fantastic results in online visibility. They were not only responsive and attentive to our needs but also proactive in their approach, often bringing innovative ideas and strategies to the table that further enhanced our project. Their expertise in SEO and digital PR is evident in the results they deliver. Thanks team

Recently ran a DPR campaign with StudioHawk, immediately once you've signed on for the service you're greeted with an incredibly helpful team, Janine and Georgia in particular are outstanding to deal with, they're super fast to action on the campaign and gave updates the entire process. We gained a massive media link from 'The Sun' US, UK and Ireland. Once the campaign was completed we've still had links trickling in which is fantastic, they have delivered above and beyond.

One of the few agencies i am genuinely satisfied to work with. StudioHawk's service has been outstanding from day one. We were lucky to have Fearghas managing our account. He's been consistently driving SEO growth to our brand and is super efficient and responsive, even liaising with our web dev to make sure all gets implemented accordingly. We've been seeing results month after month on our weekly calls thanks to his vast expertise and hands on work. It's been a dream to work with an agency that basically runs on auto-pilot and delivers results.

We are an agency partner of Studiohawk and have no hesitations in referring any of our clients to them for a good reason. They are truly the best in the business.What sets them apart is two things - first and foremost they deliver on what they promise in form of great SEO strategy and execution that delivers long term growth. Secondly but equally important they are a group of genuinely good people who are great to work with.

Got A Question? Check Out Our SEO FAQs

  • ?
    Does StudioHawk work with businesses in the Gold Coast?

    Absolutely! Although our head office is based in Melbourne, with another office in Sydney, we continue to work with a wide range of businesses based in the Gold Coast who need reliable, consistent and scalable SEO results to stay ahead of the competition.

  • ?
    How to choose the right seo agency?

    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.

  • ?
    Why do I need SEO for my Gold Coast business?

    Whether you’re serving the local Gold Coast market or your audience is interstate or even global, it’s critical to have a solid SEO strategy in order to boost your visibility, build credibility and compete effectively in your industry. With 68% of online experiences beginning with a search engine and 53% of all traffic coming from organic search, it’s more important than ever to invest in expert SEO services to reach your market.

  • ?
    How do your SEO services for Gold Coast companies work?

    From initial consultation and audit to a tailored SEO plan, our process is fully dialled in to get the best possible ROI in the shortest time for our clients. Our SEO masters make decisions driven by data, not theory. This dictates every SEO strategy in our playbook including keyword research, analytics, onpage and offpage optimisation, tech SEO, content creation, link building and local SEO. But what really makes the dream work is the team work – our clients enjoy total transparency and solid communication directly with our experts, never a middle manager.

  • ?
    How fast does Gold Coast SEO work?

    The time it takes to see results can vary depending on your industry, level of competition and specific search terms you’re targeting (e.g broad keywords take longer to rank for than long tail keywords.) Our masterful experts know all the right moves to make sure you see impressive ROI as quickly as possible, but keep in mind that SEO is an ongoing process and the results are cumulative over time.

  • ?
    How do you target my audience in the Gold Coast?

    We can geographically optimise your website content, social media, Google My Business listing and other assets by incorporating keywords that not only relate to your business, products or services but also the Gold Coast in general. Ultimately, we’re looking for keywords that your target audience are typing into Google and ensuring your website shows up on the map, in the standard search results, shopping results and in the new search engine snippets recently introduced by Google.

  • ?
    How often do algorithms change?

    Algorithms can change several times per year, so it’s important to always be ahead of the curve to maintain visibility. If you wait until the algos are rolled out before you make changes to your SEO strategy, you may experience a drop in traffic. At StudioHawk, we live and breathe SEO so we’ve always got an eagle-eye on the latest algorithm changes. Whether it’s from official Google announcements, industry blogs, forums, newsletters, SEO tools or our ongoing learning via events and staff training, we’re always one step ahead of the game for you.

  • ?
    Is SEO content important for my Gold Coast business?

    People in the Gold Coast aren’t searching Google for websites – they’re searching for information, answers, products and services. That’s why it’s critical for your website to offer the best quality content and answers they’re searching for. The more questions you answer in depth and with authority, the more likely your website will show up in the search results. High-quality content also attracts links from other websites, which helps establish your website's authority and subsequent rankings.

  • ?
    How much do Gold Coast SEO services cost?

    The price of Gold Coast SEO depends on several factors such as your goals, company size, website complexity, market and more. It’s best to come say “hi” to our friendly team and we can give you a quote that works within your budget. And remember, we boast an average 300% ROI with our clients, meaning our Gold Coast SEO services are an investment, and never a “cost”.

  • ?
    My business is based in the Gold Coast and elsewhere, can you help?

    Yes, through geographic targeting and local Gold Coast SEO strategies, we can help you gain top rankings and high visibility across all of your business locations locally, Australia-wide and internationally.

  • ?
    How much should I invest in SEO?

    This really depends on your situation. Gold Coast SEO services can range from a few hundred dollars a month for smaller businesses to several thousand for enterprise level businesses. At StudioHawk, we use a customised SEO strategy that meets your specific needs, goals and budget. Speak to our experts today and let’s see what will work best for you.

  • ?
    How do I know if SEO is right for my business?

    Truth be told, we’ve never seen a business that hasn’t benefited from SEO. Assuming you want more visibility, credibility, brand exposure, leads and sales, SEO has the potential to bring you some of the highest marketing ROI you’ll ever see. Just make sure you hire real masters, not side hustlers.

  • ?
    What strategies do you use to optimise Gold Coast businesses?

    Our clients get above average SEO ROI because we master the fundamentals and focus on what works. That’s things like keyword research, on page SEO, technical SEO, backlink building and local SEO. Alongside these core components, we’ll monitor analytics, run competitive analysis, optimise user experience and provide ongoing SEO maintenance to ensure your campaign continues to produce impressive ROI.

  • ?
    How is SEO success measured?

    The metrics we measure success against are based on your business goals. For example, if the aim of your campaign is to increase keyword visibility, we will measure results against this. If the aim is to increase traffic or conversions, our reporting will reflect this. We will have an initial conversation with you as part of the onboarding process to discuss what success looks like to you, and incorporate that in all of our reporting and catch ups for transparency.

  • ?
    My business is brand new, is SEO the right channel for me?

    There’s never a bad time to start focusing on SEO, but remember that SEO is a long term game. If you’re a new business that’s looking for instant traffic, it’s a good idea to supplement your SEO with paid advertising.

  • ?
    What’s StudioHawk’s biggest USP?

    At StudioHawk, we’re rewriting the SEO agency playbook. In the world of SEO, there’s plenty of hustlers and not enough masters; we’ve decided to change that. That means... no account managers, just direct access to SEO specialists to help you grow your business and achieve industry-leading ROI. We also master the fundamentals, focus on what works, and deliver excellence – without being distracted by shiny objects. Plus, we aren’t generalists, just damn good SEOs. We dig deep into the nuances of your business, so we can craft an SEO strategy specifically for you.

“I totally recommend the service because of the handholding and the results. These guys are the best; you can’t go wrong.”

Phil Leahy - Medcart


“StudioHawk took the time to understand what we needed as a business, our industry, and where we at in the marketplace. They were very open about their solutions and how they wished to achieve results – there was no ‘secret sauce’.”

Chris Capstick - Civilmart


“The team at StudioHawk have helped us quickly and easily get to page one of Google for multiple business-related search terms – that have directly affected our monthly sales on a channel we’ve never been able to grow ourselves. They’re not only highly skilled experts, but also incredible people to work with.”

Anna L - The Entourage


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.

Frances Hutchinson


“They are always there for me, answer all of my questions, and have really helped me and the business grow in brand awareness, traffic, and conversion.”

Adrianne Sackville - Bell & Bone


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!

Dmitri Dalla-Riva


“The team at StudioHawk have been the force to help amplify our brand growth.”

Anesley Clarke - B2C Furniture


“StudioHawk cares and goes the extra mile. It’s a plan that feels customised and tailored to our needs.”

Logan Merrick - Sitting Pretty Halo Hair


“Working with the people in StudioHawk with their hands-on approach and getting to know our business has been a key part to the success we’ve seen.”
