Affordable Manchester SEO Agency Alternative
Perhaps the thing that sets us aside from other SEO agencies the most is that, well, we’re not an agency at all.
To tell you the truth, we think ‘agency’ is a dirty word. We sometimes have to refer to ourselves as an ‘SEO agency’ just so people know what we do, but that’s not really how we see ourselves.
SEO agencies have big expensive offices and spend a fortune on their branding. SEO agencies hire huge teams of inexperienced junior staff to service clients, often unable to fulfil the promises they make when they sell projects. SEO agencies are cumbersome, inflexible and inefficient. And the clients usually foot the bill.
We’re different. We’re just a small group of highly-skilled and experienced SEO professionals doing what we love. We work remotely but to strict deadlines, using market-leading software to manage our workflows.
Our team is small and we only work with a select number of clients who we feel we have a long-term future with. By stripping away the pretentiousness of the ‘SEO agency’ and focussing all of our attention on a small number of client projects and relationships, we are able to build a stable and efficient foundation. By only spending on things that will directly help to achieve results for clients, we keep our overheads low and our pricing reflects that.
In other words, we watch the pennies and pass the savings on to you. If you're looking for a Manchester SEO agency, speak to us and see how much you could save!

Reliable, Transparent & Ethical
SEO can be confusing, especially with so much contradictory information out there. With 20 years of experience under our belts, we know exactly what works and what doesn’t. We take pride in being able to demystify SEO and will go the extra mile to make sure you are fully informed at every step throughout the campaign, through regular contact and detailed monthly reports.
As Google-certified specialists, we stay current with the latest innovations in SEO. We have also been a Member of the Chartered Institue of Marketing (CIM) since 2015, which requires adherence to strict ethical marketing guidelines and commitment to the highest standards of client service.
Contemporary Cutting Edge SEO
SEO is ever-evolving, but once you understand the overall trajectory and aims of Google’s algorithms, it becomes much easier to predict where things are going. We have a wealth of experience and are amongst the UK’s leading experts on the inner workings of Google’s algorithm.
We also own and manage a number of our own test sites as well as Amazon affiliate websites. We are constantly testing subtly different approaches to SEO to fine-tune our processes for clients, finding the most efficient tactics and methods.
The SEO Process:
1. Competitor research and keyword selection
Before we can launch your project, the most appropriate keywords must be selected as part of the foundation for your SEO strategy. We will use leading tools to analyse search volumes, seasonal trends, competitiveness and suitability for your products and services. We will also analyse your competitors, picking apart their SEO strategies and keyword focus to identify opportunities.
2. Technical SEO and on-page optimisation
Once we have established which keywords we should strongly consider, we begin creating a plan that incorporates any changes necessary to your website's code, layout, architecture and content.
This entails much more than just adding keywords to the page. We will cover areas such as metadata, semantic code and page layout, schema, keyword mapping, duplication and canonicalisation, page speed and many more factors.
3. Off-page optimisation and link acquisition
The next step of any SEO campaign is link-building in order to grow your site's authority and demonstrate the quality, value and trustworthiness of your pages to search engines. Google basically views a direct link to a website as an indicator of that website’s value. As a consequence, links are a crucial factor in determining which websites are listed at the top of the search results and should be included in every SEO campaign. Failing to do so will almost certainly result in the campaign failing to achieve the most valuable rankings.
Quality is definitely the most important thing here. We use a range of safe, ethical, contemporary link acquisition techniques including outreach and digital PR to gain the highest quality backlinks to your website from trusted, valuable, relevant sources.
4. Monthly reporting
We provide tailored monthly reports including data from a range of leading SEO tools. We include the information you want to see and will adjust the reporting to suit the needs of your business and your team. We don’t just bamboozle you with the metrics, we explain what they mean and deliver actionable insight into the next steps and actions.
Most of our clients request the full spectrum of metrics from all of our tools. We are experts with these tools and get fantastic discounts due to having large multi-site accounts and referral schemes. The access we provide to tools would cost upward of £12,000 per year if you were to pay for them yourself, but we can do so at a fraction of that cost.
