    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.

    What are backlinks and how important are they?

    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.

    Why is SEO important for my Sydney-based business?

    Whether you’re serving the local Sydney market or your audience is global, it’s critical to have a solid SEO strategy in order to boost your visibility, build credibility and compete effectively in your industry.

  • ?
    What are the key components of an effective SEO strategy for my Sydney business?

    Every successful SEO campaign should be focusing on the following fundamentals: Keyword research, to uncover customer needs, content ideas and to identify relevant Sydney-based and/or non-geographically based search terms to target via SEO On page SEO, to optimise your website, content and other technical aspects to make it easy for search engines to understand what your website is about Technical SEO, to ensure your website is mobile friendly, fully functioning, fast loading, secure and easily crawlable by search engines Backlink building, to develop links from other authoritative websites in order to send “trust signals” to search engines about your website Local SEO, to optimise your Google My Business listing, gather reviews and create location specific content geared towards Sydney and surrounding areas 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 long does it typically take to see results from SEO efforts?

    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.

  • ?
    Is it necessary to hire an SEO agency, or can I do SEO on my own?

    This depends on your business and goals. For small businesses, it may be possible to handle some basic SEO tasks yourself using various free and paid tools, but if your business is in a competitive market in Sydney, you’re serious about growth and you don’t have the time, resources or expertise to run a successful SEO campaign yourself, then hiring an SEO agency is an essential business investment.

  • ?
    How does backlink building contribute to SEO success?

    Your Sydney SEO campaign will rely heavily on backlink building, also known as link building. Backlinks are critical for improving your website's authority, relevance, and visibility in search engine results as they’re essentially a “voting” system where each backlink is a “vote” for the quality and trustworthiness of your website. The more “votes” the more likely a search engine will rank your content higher in the search engine results.

  • ?
    What are the common SEO mistakes that Sydney-based businesses should avoid?

    To run a successful Sydney SEO campaign there are several things you should avoid. Firstly, ignoring local Sydney SEO best-practices is a big faux pas. Your campaign should target Sydney based keywords and have a properly optimised Google My Business profile set up (especially if you’re serving the local Sydney market and you have a physical location in Sydney to deliver your products or services.) The next is keyword stuffing. You should only use keywords in your content where it feels natural and warranted. Don’t be tempered to force your target keywords into every paragraph, especially where it doesn’t make grammatical sense. Not creating quality content is an other common mistake. All successful SEO Sydney campaigns are built around locally focused, in depth content that answers your target customer’s questions relating to your product or service. Finally, being inconsistent. SEO is an ever-changing process and it’s critical to stay up to date with algorithm changes, consistently publish quality content, respond to reviews and monitor analytics to ensure your SEO is producing the best results for your business.

  • ?
    Is it necessary to invest in paid advertising alongside SEO?

    Paid advertising can be a great strategy for growing businesses that need fast results while their SEO builds momentum. It also allows you to quickly find out which search terms are most profitable and focus on those terms with your SEO campaign.

  • ?
    How long does it take to get ranking?

    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.

  • ?
    Is SEO a short term or long term strategy?

    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.

  • ?
    How important is content in an SEO strategy?

    It could be argued that content is the most important factor in an SEO strategy. While backlinks are important, content is something that 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.

  • ?
    How does SEO benefit my website's visibility on search engines?

    Through on-page and off-page SEO strategies, we can help your business rank higher in the search results and drive more organic traffic to your website for a wider variety of keywords that your target audience are using to find your business and solutions.

  • ?
    What is the difference between on-page and off-page SEO?

    On-page SEO focuses on optimising the content and structure of your website to improve search engine rankings and user experience. Meanwhile, off-page SEO involves building your website's authority, reputation and credibility through external factors such as backlinks, social signals, PR and online mentions. Both on-page and off-page SEO are important for achieving high search engine rankings and attracting organic traffic to your website.

  • ?
    What are keywords, and how do they factor into a Sydney-based SEO strategy?

    Keywords are specific words or phrases that people use when searching for information, products, or services on search engines like Google. In the context of SEO, keywords are central to your strategy as they help you optimise your website's content to match the terms and phrases your target audience is likely to use in their search queries. In a Sydney-based SEO strategy, local keywords play a vital role in connecting with your target audience in the region. By understanding the search habits and preferences of Sydney residents and optimising your website and content accordingly, you can increase your visibility in local search results and attract more potential customers from the Sydney area.

  • ?
    What is the significance of high-quality content in SEO?

    People don’t search the web for websites – they search for information and answers. Therefore, it’s critical that your website is offering the best quality information and answers they’re searching for. The more questions you answer, in the most in depth fashion, 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 do I choose the right Sydney SEO agency for my business needs?
