All this work stems from the SEO team, who will ensure all work carried out on your website will be fully optimized with visibility and growth in mind. One of the issues many businesses face with employing SEO professionals is that they may not have the wide range of skills needed to perform SEO to a high level.

SEO best practices are universal, and we will make sure all the basics are comprehensively covered before we move on to some more advanced techniques and optimisations to help your business achieve its goals.

Local SEO in Preston

Businesses with bricks and mortar stores or websites which provide services in the local community are obviously interested in attracting visitors from the Preston area as much as they can.

If you have a shop, people may find you online and purchase or take a trip to your shop. This is important for big certain ticket items such as Home Furniture, Cars, Jewellery and Manufacturing. People may have the option to purchase online, but as the value of the items can be high, some people still prefer a visit to the shop so they can see the product for themselves.

Some people still also prefer to shop locally, and if they find a similar product online between your store in Preston and one in London, they may choose the shop of closer proximity. This can be for a variety of reasons; if you order a sofa online and it arrives, and you are dissatisfied, organising the collection and return from a local company can be a lot quicker and more efficient compared to a business based on the other side of the country.

In other areas where you do not sell physical objects but services, a local search is still important. People look for everything from accountants to hairdressers and everything in between locally. Making sure your website displays for these local areas searches can be of significant importance to small and medium-sized businesses and a great source of revenue.


Optimizing for Local Search

Google and the other search engines understand people look for local services and give them a boost in local search results. Having a business address listed in the Preston area will put you at an advantage in capturing a percentage of these local searches.

Known as the local pack, if you search for a specific business or service in the local area, you may be familiar with seeing a map with local businesses displayed. But the organic positions are also influenced depending on your location. If you type in “furniture for sale” in Preston as opposed to London, your results will not be the same.
Ranking high on national level terms is, of course, of great importance also and will give you opportunities to show for generic terms in different locations, but we should also look to optimize for local search in the best way possible.

Simply having a (NAP) Name, Address and Postcode and ensuring your Google My Business listing is up to date are basics, but we should look much further to optimize for local area searches.

Google reviews, citations listing your physical address, page links and on-page experience are just some other factors that will take our standard local presence to one that actively improves its position in the Preston area.

Can You Do SEO Alone?

Anybody can do elements of SEO for themselves. Just by creating a page on a website and adding content, you are doing “SEO”. But what can separate businesses is that they actively acknowledge SEO elements and the multi-disciplined approach that it needs to be considered with.

When we talk to many business owners about canonical tags, schema code, LCP, E-A-T factors and the latest Google broad core updates, we might as well be talking in a totally different language.

It is the same across many industries, a mechanic may give a very different explanation to a brake on a car than “it makes a car stop”. Whilst SEO “makes websites rank high,” it is within the detail and the continuously changing landscape that requires full attention.

Leave It to the Professionals

There are some areas that you should not attempt to do yourself if you are not experienced in SEO, this is due to the fact that it could actually make your site worse with incorrect practices being carried out.

For instance, if you want to gain backlinks but aren’t aware of toxic links, you may be spending time on something that is certainly not contributing to a healthy website.

It is for reasons just like this one that you should leave your SEO & marketing for your Preston business up to a professional team, like us here at Maxweb.

What to Expect from Maxweb’s SEO Services in Preston

We pledge to take the burden of marketing off of your shoulders, so you can focus on the areas of your business that truly matter to you. Some of the main positive changes that you can expect include, but are certainly not limited to, the following.


An Increase in Website Visitors and Conversions

One thing that you can count on when choosing Maxweb as your SEO agency in Preston is that your website will be able to soar in the relevant rankings.

First, we will get to know you, your brand and the objective of your website.

This will help us in determining what your target keywords will be, the kinds of pages that would be beneficial in increasing the health of your website and ultimately, what we need to prioritise in terms of SEO to increase traffic and conversion rates.

Not All Traffic Holds Equal Potential Value

Visitors to any website can hold different amounts of potential value. A user may come to your website looking for information regarding a topic, or they may come actually to purchase a product or service.

Understanding the user’s journey and where they are placed in this funnel can be the difference between attracting visitors who are ready to purchase as opposed to visitors who are still gathering information.

Through keyword research, we can identify content gaps and also what keywords we want our website to rank for. We want to create helpful content that can be informative to end users, but we also need to have pages that can hold potential commercial value by offering particular products or services.

Our Services for SEO in Preston Are a Long Term Solution

Rather than any quick fixes, or even any SEO agencies in Preston that promise to get you ranking 1st in ‘X’ amount of weeks, we opt for real long-term commitments that are realistic.

Often, Google may throw a curveball and switch up the algorithm. This is pretty common, but we are always prepared to ensure that we are ready to make any necessary changes to ensure that your site will always recover.

SEO practices may need time to show, it is slow; however, once you’re up there, we are consistently able to keep your site there. Though SEO is a much more cost-effective solution, it requires consistent attention and monitoring, meaning having a professional SEO consultant in Preston while running a website is the most sensible option.

Having a site that ranks organically provides you with a status that is much more reliable; while PPC and SEO work well in unison, SEO represents a site that Google recognises as a reliable source, and it won’t disappear should your PPC budget run out!
