FAQs from our SEO Melbourne clients

Get help understanding how to use SEO to get results.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) improves your website to match Google's search parameters. The search engine uses a complex algorithm, with over 200 search signals, to decide which websites to rank highest in their search result pages.

With over 20+ years in the SEO industry and advanced knowledge of white-hat Melbourne SEO practices, White Chalk Road has a strong understanding of how to improve the rankings of your website, and generate a higher percentage of conversions from site visitors through tailored SEO campaigns.

Every SEO strategy is different, and every budget is different. SEO campaign costs are usually determined by how much work (ie how many hours a month) you will need to spend, in order to get results.

The cost of your SEO service is highly dependent on your business and industry, with some locations and industries much more competitive than others.

If you provide one product or service, in a niche industry, your SEO costs to achieve results may well be much lower, than a business selling thousands of products in a highly competitive market. At the end of the day, you just need to outrank your competitors, and this can be more or less difficult, depending on your industry.

The current authority of your website is also a large consideration when determining the costs of your SEO campaign. If you have a brand new website, you are starting from scratch and may need to invest more, than a well-established website, which already has some ranking authority.

As an experienced SEO Agency, White Chalk Road will do an initial technical SEO audit of your website and industry, to determine how competitive it will be to get results. We can then provide an accurate SEO quote to achieve the best return on your SEO marketing investment.

Nope! Our entire SEO team is based in Australia and understand the local Melbourne market. Our expert SEO team are university qualified and have extensive experience in managing successful marketing campaigns.

Our local legends are highly motivated to stay ahead of the curve and maintain up to date industry knowledge on all things Google and SEO Melbourne best practices.

Sadly No - and anyone who 'guarantees' this is wrong. We know what is achievable and provide you with realistic KPIs at the start of your SEO campaign, to ensure you increase the bottom line for your business.

Tracking keyword rankings alone is pointless. The best way to monitor your keyword positions in search and the value to your business is through a detailed keyword report, outlining current average positions across a range of keyword phrases and a realistically expected target growth for that average over an agreed period.

You should tie this in with tracking other important metrics, such as the amount of qualified (customers who want to buy) traffic (website visits) that your website receives from people via Google. For an SEO optimised website, increased targeted traffic will mean increased leads and ultimately increased profit for your business.

While there is no 'magic number', you can usually expect to see SEO results between 4-6 months. This highly depends on how much work is being completed on your SEO campaign (eg if you are only doing a few hours a month, it can take much longer to see results). The competitiveness of your industry also plays a large part, and your SEO company should give you an accurate expectation of how long your SEO campaign will take, based on your industry and budget.

Your SEO campaign results will continue to grow over time, so whatever results you are seeing at the 6-month mark, should generally improve further by the 12, 18, and 24-month mark. It is hugely important you set up analytics tracking right from the start, to ensure you are monitoring accurate SEO data to track results.
