What is a SERP and why would I want to boost it?

SERP stands for Search Engine Result Page, and the higher you rank on the likes of Google, Bing and Yahoo, the more clicks, leads, sales, reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations you should receive, not to mention an overall improvement in brand recognition.

How long are your contracts?

I wouldn’t dream of tying clients down to lengthy contracts, which is why all SEO sessions are on rolling deals which you can cancel at any time.

How much do you charge for your SEO services?

Each hour of SEO work is charged at £30ph.

How many hours of work can you do for me?

As many as you like!

The flexibility is there for you to take everything from a single one-off session, up to 20+ hours per month. Not all websites will need a huge amount of work, and while I will be honest in my assessment of how many hours you’ll likely get the most benefit from, the decision is ultimately yours. Typically, though, most small business websites take around 5 hours per month.

Can you make my site rank #1?

Nobody can guarantee that your site will sail to the top of the search results. In fact, nobody can absolutely guarantee that it will move up the rankings at all.

However, with careful planning, achievable goals can be set. Whether it’s to move an already well-placed website into the Top 5, or to get a new business up towards the first page, I will do my utmost to help you reach your target.

If you make any changes to our website, how will you do it?

The same way any webmaster would.

I will need the login credentials of your website to access the back end, and make any alterations from there using either your CMS (WordPress, Squarespace, Joomla, etc) or the raw HTML code. If you’d prefer to make the changes yourself from a list of suggestions, or have your existing web team do it, that’s absolutely fine, too.

Do I have to pay the full amount up front?

Not at all. The flexibility is there for you to pay in advance, once the work has been completed or on a milestone basis.

Do you accept PayPal?

Absolutely. I also accept payment by cheque or bank transfer.

What is a citations campaign?

A citations campaign is where I submit your business details – Name, Address, Phone Number, and usually a brief description of what you do – to various business directories. These can be national ones such as Yell and Thomson, ones in your local area, or directories which are specific to your niche.

Not only do these campaigns help to get your name mentioned in more places and give you more relevant backlinks, but they help search engines accurately correlate your information, and of course, can also lead to extra awareness and sales.

One small side-effect of submitting to directories is that you may receive the occasional email or call from them trying to sell you additional services. It’s important to note that SERP Boost is not affiliated with any business directories and does not receive any commission from them whatsoever.

Do you help charities?

I strongly believe that money isn’t everything, and have a commitment to perform free SEO work for small charities and community groups in the UK and Ireland wherever possible.

How many people work at SERP Boost?

Just one. I (Ian Burke) am the founder and sole employee for the time being, and it’ll be me who you will be in contact with and will undertake all the work on your website.
