Award-Winning SEO Agency
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of making your website easier to find in search engines. We have offered award-winning SEO in Chester for many years. SEO is one of the most powerful marketing techniques available and our commercial case studies for SEO in Chester show the scale of the potential returns.
Less than 25% of people searching Google will scroll further than the first page of results, so using SEO to increase your page one visibility can make a huge difference to your business, ensuring you get more visitors to your website and more customers.
However, this is something that many businesses in Chester are simply too busy to dedicate time and resources to. It is also an increasingly technical discipline, so you need dedicated and experienced specialists to handle your SEO campaign otherwise you may not be able to compete with the websites on page 1.
Unlike many companies offering SEO in Chester, we specialise in SEO rather than diluting our focus with other services. We have over 20 years of experience offering award-winning SEO services and our award-winning experts are leaders in UK SEO. No matter what size of business you are and regardless of your company's size, we can help you to get more traffic and customers through Google.
Small Business SEO & Local SEO in Chester
If you only sell products or services locally in Chester, you could benefit from a ‘Local SEO’ Chester focussed campaign. Local SEO campaigns are aimed at getting your website found at the top of page one when people search for phrases including a place name.
For example, “dentists in chester”, “used cars chester” or “shoe shop chester” will return tailored results promoting businesses in Chester. Recent research found that 72% of people making organic searches with ‘local intent’ visited a physical store within 5 miles soon afterwards. The stores that got the visits were the ones found in Google.
The benefit of doing local SEO is that it will limit your competition to other businesses in Chester. It can still be competitive, of course, as other local businesses are also trying to rank as high as possible on page one for the same search terms, especially if they are popular search terms which drive valuable traffic. However, by cutting out the competitors outside of Chester, local SEO will make your budget go further.
We have taken many local businesses from startups to local market leaders, in Chester and farther afield. You can trust MoreTraphic to find the most effective SEO tactics to position your business in front of more potential customers in Chester. Speak to us today about Chester local SEO services.

Our SEO Process
Every SEO campaign we create is tailored to the unique requirements of the client. However, we often loosely follow this process:
Free Audit & Consultation
Let our experts analyse your website, your backlink profile and your digital marketing strategy to find areas for improvement. We have access to all of the leading SEO analysis tools so we can deliver actionable insights based on complex datasets. We also strongly believe that SEO audits should have a manual aspect. We leverage 20+ years of SEO experience to highlight potential problem areas, future roadblocks and areas that could be targeted to generate commercial growth.
Understanding which keywords people are searching in Google is crucial if you want to get more traffic on your website. There are many tools which provide you with average monthly search volumes and this is a great place to start. However, the real key to developing a successful SEO campaign is being able to pick keywords that not only have enough search volume to deliver traffic and sales, but which are also realistic targets when your budget is weighed against the level of competition. This is something that comes with experience. We have ranked thousands of keywords in Google, covering every conceivable industry and niche, so we have a very good eye for keyword selection.
If you want Google to reward you with high rankings in their search engine, you need your website to offer a positive and rewarding user experience. Your site needs to be mobile-friendly, fast to load, well managed for accessibility and structured in a logical way with natural internal linking patterns. Best practices are a minimum requirement for your website’s code when it comes to SEO. Technical SEO at its best is the process of going a step beyond best practices to make sure the finer technical details of the pages in your site are tactically optimised for crawling and indexing by Google.
The content of your pages is, of course, critically important in determining which keywords you rank for and how high you rank in the results. Just like technical SEO, there is a certain level of on-page SEO which amounts to best practice – but the most successful on-page SEO campaigns go above and beyond. Using advanced optimisation techniques, we can ensure that the right words are used in precisely the right places in the right ratios across your website. We can also steer your content production teams to produce the exact content required to show Google that you are an authority in your industry and therefore should outrank your competitors.
Every site owner is in full control of their content and their technical foundations. Google knows this, so they look for signals of value that site owners have less control over. The most obvious one is other websites choosing to link to the content on your website. Each of these ‘backlinks’ is a vote of confidence in your website and the more you have, the higher you will rank. We use safe and ethical link acquisition tactics that deliver long-term results including digital PR and outreach.
SEO reports are about much more than listing what we’ve done and detailing budget usage – although that, of course, is an important part of keeping our clients happy. The real value in SEO reports is the ongoing analysis of the strategy, progress towards predefined goals and overall performance. We deliver fully transparent tailored SEO reports each month.
Ethical SEO Services in Chester
Despite the methods many SEO agencies in Chester use to sell their services, it is highly unethical to sell guaranteed position 1 rankings with SEO – at least certainly where those promises are made for a specific keyword. Any digital marketing agency that does this is making assurances that they simply cannot be certain of delivering.
Our philosophy has always been based around honestly, transparency and an ethical approach to every aspect of the SEO service we offer. This commitment to doing things properly and sustainably has led to us forging strong relationships with clients going back a decade, not only in the Chester and Cheshire areas but also farther afield.
We outline a strategy based on experience, data, in-depth analysis and an understanding of your business’s unique commercial situation and we work with you to get to a point where we agree on a logical approach. We put markers and KPIs in place to help us both understand how quickly the campaign is progressing and we regularly review the campaign, looking for improved efficiencies and opportunities for increased ROI.
We don’t talk fluff, we don’t make false promises and we put the groundwork in to make sure our relationship, just like your SEO results, will be sustainable long-term.
