About Our Melbourne SEO Company

Our service consists of 4 key pillars:

Advanced keyword research to find the best keywords that convert visitors into customers.

Technical SEO optimisation to fix technical issues holding your website back from ranking #1.

On page optimisation including user experience, conversion rate optimisation and strategic content creation across your website and social media properties.

Off page SEO to build highly relevant and powerful backlinks that deliver incredible performance.

Digital Marketing Analysis: For us to deliver the incredible SEO results, it’s vital we step back and learn how your industry works, it’s challenges and the typical sales journey your customer goes through. Understanding the typical customer journey enables us to formulate the right strategy that converts website visitors into paying customers.

Competitor Study: Every business is unique and yours is no different. We study your online competitors to understand what’s working in your industry to deliver the best results possible. Our campaigns are designed to outperform your competitors and get your website ranking above theirs.

Website Gap Analysis: One of the first steps we take with your website is to look at the gaps between you and your top competitors. We analyse over 200 different ranking factors to find the ‘gaps’ and begin closing them as efficiently as possible.

Keyword Research: Keyword research forms the foundation of all our SEO strategies and is a critical factor to achieve success with search engine optimisation. We begin with an in-depth study to discover the best keywords for your business, map them to the appropriate landing pages on your website and send them to you for approval.

On-Page SEO optimisation: Improving on-page SEO is a critical ranking factor that sets your website up for success. Not only do we improve your site for Google but we also ensure it works for customers visiting your website too through conversion rate optimisation and user experience (UX) signals.

Advanced Technical SEO Solutions: Technical SEO is an often forgotten pillar most agencies avoid simply because it’s categorised into the ‘Too Hard Basket’. Our technical SEO sets us apart from 99% of digital agencies whether it be performing complex SEO website migrations or correcting challenging website architecture issues.

Data Analysis, Benchmarking & Tracking: Before any campaign kicks into full swing, we do a deep dive into your websites traffic performance and bench mark all of the key metrics (website traffic, user behaviour, conversion tracking). By understanding where you’re currently at means we can hold ourselves accountable and to the highest standards. Being 100% transparent about our search engine optimisation, what we do and communicating with you every step of the way allows us to deliver powerful results and a measurable return on investment through hard data. Our agencies radical transparency is a big reason clients choose to work with us over a long period of time.

Strategic Content Marketing: It’s vital we have a strong content marketing strategy in place to build on your sites search presence and to also cast a wider net for increased organic search visibility.

Evergreen Content Creation: Over the last few years, Google has dramatically changed the way in which it ranks websites and most so-called ‘SEO experts’ are yet to catch on. You can’t write a 500-word blog post targeting long-tail keywords and expect it to rank anymore. We work with you to create ‘Content Assets’ which are powerful pieces of content specifically designed for first page rankings.

Link Prospecting: We search the internet far and wide to build up a strong list of high-quality link prospects for your website. Our link prospecting serves as our main source of links we’ll be able to tap into throughout the lifetime of your SEO campaign.

Outreach and Brand Exposure: Unlike most agencies, we don’t buy links for generic link farms and mask it as “white hat” instead, our team manually reach out to other site owners via email to acquire high quality links back to your site. We employee a variety of methods to do this as it yields the greatest results and targeted brand exposure for your business.

Link Acquisition: Arguably one of the strongest ranking signals used by Google. Backlinks act as a vote of confidence that your website does what it says. Our approach to link building is simple: Quality over Quantity is key. A single link from a reputable website will be worth more than 1000 links from low quality spammy websites.

User Experience Improvements: We address any underlining issues that could be holding your website back from it’s full potential. Although UX isn’t a direct ranking signal it does indirectly affect traffic behaviour metrics such as bounce rate and dwell time which do have an impact.

Landing Page Optimisation: Driving targeted traffic to your website is what SEO is all about but what if that traffic doesn’t like web page? Pretty soon search engines will catch on too and push your site further down. It’s vital we keep enhancing the style and performance of your most important web pages to keep potential customers engaged and your conversions high.

Traffic Quality Improvements: The majority of traffic visiting your website will depend on the keyword research and planning we conducted during the discover phase but things can always be further improved and optimised as more website data come through.

Competitor Watching: Your business is seeing strong growth, but so could your competitors and we need to ensure our finger is always on the pulse and aware of any changes in case we need to make adjustments to your SEO campaign.

Once approved by you, we begin actioning the plan and track performance through a combination of data analytics and traffic behaviour analysis to achieve maximum online search presence for your website.

Link building is one of the most important factors when it comes to achieving success with SEO. Unfortunately, a lot of agencies employee link building tactics that go against Google’s guidelines and put your website at risk of a Google penalty. At Engine Scout, a link building is done by humans and for humans, not robots. We start by creating an amazing piece of content on your site we call a ‘Power Page’. Power pages are strategic content pieces engineered to attract a lot of high quality, relevant links back to your website. This strategy might not sound like much, but it’s in fact, one of the most potent weapons we have in our arsenal and it sets us apart from 99% of other agencies out there. Using our power page technique, your competitors won’t come close to competing against you unless they to know how to execute this strategy too.

Before working together, our team will conduct a detailed review of your website and competition to determine if SEO is the right online marketing channel for you. If we think it’s not the right fit, then we’ll tell you before working together and give you an accurate estimate of the time-frame needed to achieve results. SEO is a long-term growth strategy and it’s for people who are serious about growing a sustainable and successful business for years to come. If you’re looking for a short term, low-cost marketing strategy in the hope of striking it lucky, then SEO is not for you.

We work with either established businesses generating at least $200,000 in revenue per year and funded start-ups. If you’re launching a brand new business and have a small marketing budget, then Google Ads could be a better digital marketing strategy as it requires less upfront investment and can start generating sales faster.

There are over 200 ranking factors used by Google to rank websites and each varies slightly in how much they influence your website’s rankings. Google’s algorithm is both complex and dynamic, which can make it challenging to get the results you want if you lack the knowledge required to perform search engine optimisation. At Engine Scout, we’ve achieved outstanding results for our clients across a wide range of industries and locations. Whether you have an eCommerce store, local business, national brand or international company, we have the expertise and experience to achieve fantastic results.

The cost of SEO varies depending on several factors from how competitive your industry is, the age of your website and whether you’ve had any SEO work performed in the past. SEO should be considered an investment instead of a cost because when it’s done right, it will produce additional revenue for your business. Some of our client’s entire business comes strictly from SEO and ranking at the top of Google; that’s how valuable it can be. SEO should be considered an integral part of any marketing budget.

We’re eCommerce experts having built multiple eCommerce stores ourselves and understand the eCommerce business model exceptionally well. We know the exact blueprint for generating more traffic and sales to your store through a combination of SEO, PPC, SMM and CRO.
