Should I start SEO before or after my website is built?
The earlier you can build search engine optimization into your website the quicker you’ll be found on the search engine results pages. In other words, it is a lot easier optimising your website for search engines during the creation phase rather than building it in after you’ve gone live in an SEO campaign. You don’t want Google to see an un-optimised version of your website the first time it crawls your website, do you?.
Importantly, taking on the advice of an experienced freelance SEO consultant prior to developing your website is crucial. SEO consultancy services can advise you on the technical aspects of your site – determining what is important and what isn’t. As well as consulting on technical aspects such as title tags, description tags, meta tags, site structure, site speed or performing an SEO audit, an SEO consultancy can also help with competitive analysis, keyword research and other aspects of digital marketing. In addition to this, you will also gain expert advice on modern content marketing techniques that appeal to both your customers and Google.
The world of online marketing is such a fast-paced and ever-changing environment that I’m always learning. That’s just one of the things I love most about SEO, it’s an industry that never stands still. I’m abreast of all the latest changes, strategies, industry and algorithm updates and market trends. This ensures your business is never left behind.
Over the last ten years I’ve worked alongside some of the UK’s best SEO agencies and as a freelancer. The skills I’ve learnt along the way mean I can integrate seamlessly with your marcomms, digital and dev teams. Plus, as a leading London-based SEO consultant I can work on both short and long-term projects.
Whilst I’m based in London, SEO is an incredibly transferable skill. That means my skillset isn’t limited to the UK. I’m happy to travel within the UK, work remotely or in a physical office as part of your wider team. Similarly, I can work remotely for businesses based outside of the UK.
An SEO consultant like me offers more flexibility than an agency might. That’s because you can enlist my SEO services for specific projects or on a rolling contract. With me, there’s no minimum length to a contract. That means you can cancel my services at any time.
As part of my SEO services I also have a network of freelancers that I work closely with. They can provide an add-on service depending on the project and strategy. I understand that every brand is in a different place of their digital transformation. So, I always advise on the best team and strategy in order to better optimise your ROI and achieve your goal of increasing your traffic and conversion.
