Our approach to SEO
SEO is well known for being a fast-moving and competitive industry. Many of your competitors will have already invested in an SEO agency or in-house experts to rival you in search engines. But what gives you the edge over them?
This is where our talented team of strategic SEO consultants shine brightest. With years of industry experience, we can help you navigate the increasingly complex and highly competitive search landscape.
Engaging copy, optimised metadata, internal linking and rich anchor text are all key aspects to the perfect page. Without these, your website won’t rank for your target keywords – which isn’t ideal.
The perceived trustworthiness and expertise of your website in the eyes of search engines is key. We can help achieve this by creating quality site content which is both relevant and useful.
We use the latest SEO tools and technologies to analyse and optimise your website. As well as our own Python scripting, we use Ahrefs, SEMrush, Moz, Google Analytics and Google Search Console.
User experience factors, such as page load speed, mobile-friendliness and easy navigation, can affect your site’s ranking and conversion rate. We create a positive user experience that will be key to your SEO success.
We’re more than an SEO agency.
We have the capability to execute all the key services you need to turn strategy into action, and stay ahead of competitors.

Frequently asked questions
Can you guarantee SEO results?
We never guarantee particular rankings and any agency that does is deceiving you.
The truth is, search engines are constantly updating their algorithm and there will always be uncertain and natural fluctuations. Anyway, rankings aren’t solely what we should be focusing on.
Instead, we aim to increase organic leads, conversions and revenue. Metrics that will have a concrete impact on your business. And we guarantee that with our expert knowledge and experience you will see significant improvements in line with agreed objectives.
What’s so different about Hallam when it comes to SEO?
Unlike other SEO agencies who implement SEO work in isolation, we’re a full-service digital agency and understand that SEO relies on all the different disciplines in order to make it a success. And our approach is more innovative than your standard SEO agency.
We use AI and automation to speed up manual tasks such as redirects to ensure we have the time to focus on the high-value activities and consultancy that will really make the difference in performance.
What KPIs and metrics do you use to track progress?
We report on SEO metrics such as rankings and organic traffic as well as conversions and revenue achieved from that organic traffic. However, we’re also able to link up to your CRM platform to directly report on metrics such as MQLs and new customer acquisitions, so that you have a greater level of visibility on the real-world success of our SEO work.
