Rankings for a beds chester search

Top Ranking Placement

One such Chester company we helped out with SEO in the local area was Bed Factory Direct.

After opening a new shop, they wanted to rank above National retailers Dreams and Bensons for Beds for the term “Beds Chester”.

With our help, they achieved top-ranking placement and, in turn, drove more foot traffic into the shop and increased telephone enquiries.

How Does SEO Work?

When a user inputs a search query into Google or any search engine, The search engine then has to decide, out of the billions of web pages present, which one can satisfy your search result the best.

If we think of Google as a library, each website is a book, and each page in each book is actually a web page. And just like a library, we have an indexing system; each page is categorised and indexed to help the algorithm find related web pages quickly.

Now, search engines have to decide from all of these pages which one provides the best result to your search query in milliseconds.

How Google generates search results is always changing, and SEO encompasses thousands of ranking factors.

Search engines want to display the best result otherwise, people will switch to other search engines that provide better results. If you search “SEO Agency Chester”, you don’t want to see a web development agency based in Spain.

Search engines understand this, and that is why when you search this term, you will find local businesses that provide SEO services. You have just discovered one ranking factor: proximity to a product or service.

But you may not want to target your specific and have a national outlook; you may want to rank for competitive keywords on a national scale. Where our focus switches, our strategy in targeting specific keywords also has to switch too.

Our SEO Chester consultants can look into the most effective search engine optimisation strategy for you, helping to keep your website regularly updated with high-ranking keywords.

The ultimate goal of Search Engine Optimisation is simply to make more customers aware of your products or services. This begins with user intent when they type a search query (keyword(s)) into a search engine and ends when the results have been delivered. It’s the bits in the middle, the milliseconds it takes to make a decision on the best page to show, that we here at Maxweb focus on.

Organic or Paid SEO - Which One Should I Focus On?

For budgeting reasons, some organisations may be pondering the question of whether they should invest in organic SEO or pay-per-click ads.

Both of these digital marketing services have their own advantages. Pay-per-click ads can be a faster method of generating leads for your business. In contrast, organic SEO is more of a slower form of digital marketing but with a great return on investment potential.

We believe that running both simultaneously is a great way of generating faster leads whilst building your presence in the organic search results.

So, what if you do have to choose between the two?

As previously mentioned, both these methods of marketing have their advantages, but there are also some downsides which must be mentioned.

Pros and Cons of Organic SEO


  • Long-term Results: Organic SEO can provide a source of traffic that will continue to land on your site even when you are not working on it.
  • Cost-effective: Unlike PPC, you don’t have to pay for each click generated through the search results.
  • Unlimited Traffic Potential: As opposed to Ads, traffic generated from organic SEO is not completely dependent on how much your business spends on it.
  • Improved User Experience: SEO involves creating a better experience for users who land on the website as it focuses on UX and user interactions.


  • Time: Results from SEO don’t necessarily come straight away. It can often take a minimum of 3 months to see any results.
  • Unpredictability: Search engines such as Google will make regular changes to their algorithms, which can cause drops in traffic and are often difficult to both predict and plan for.
  • Human Resources: You want your website to rank for certain keywords, but so do your competitors. To have a well-implemented SEO strategy, you will need to call upon SEO Experts and Consultants over a period of time, and this costs money.


Pros and Cons of Paid Ads


  • Instant Results: Paid ads can provide immediate traffic to your website as soon as an ad is launched.
  • Targeting: You can target specific audiences based on their demographic, behaviours and interests.
  • Flexibility: A budget can be set and adjusted at any point of your ad campaign.
  • Measurability: Accurate reporting of ad performance helps make sure your budget is used optimally.


  • Cost: The cost of paid ads can be very expensive. This is often dependent on the price of each bid which varies depending on the target industry.
  • Short-Term: Ads are very much a short-term game. Constant investment is required to keep generating results.
  • Highly Competitive: The competition can be very competitive when it comes to paid ads, often resulting in increased costs needed to compete. It is not a level playing field, and businesses with bigger budgets can dominate the share of ad space.

Wherever service your business decides to go with, it’s important that you are able to find a solution that is aligned with your business’s long-term goals.

If you are still unsure, then please get in touch with our team today. We provide both services and can help guide you on what is best suited to your requirements.
