FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Everything you need to know about SEO.

SEO is an amazing way to attract new clients, boost your brand image, and build trust and credibility. There is a perceived authenticity and trust factor when a potential customer finds who they are looking for at the top of Google.

Red Giraffe can help you build your organic rankings and attract new customers, day and night.

As opposed to black hat SEO, which utilises shady techniques such as keyword stuffing and buying backlinks, white hat SEO is the art of optimising your website inline with Google’s best practices.

Sure, your results may take a little longer to kick in than using the black hat stuff, but at least you’re safe in the knowledge you won’t get blacklisted by Google!

Technical SEO is all the wonderful, geeky stuff that goes on behind the scenes in order to improve the accessibility of your website for crawling and indexing. This covers everything from page speed and sitemaps to internal linking and schema markup.

To learn more about what we do and how we do it, read about our SEO process here.

No unfortunately not; local SEO is our speciality, and we believe it’s important to stick with doing what you’re good at.

Comparing SEO agencies is not like comparing apples with apples. An SEO agency is like an olympic personal trainer; each agency is effectively competing to see who can create the best optimised website to win in the race and rank the highest. The more work you do and the better you do it, the more likely your website is to succeed and rank higher than your competitors. 

We believe each agency charges what they feel their services are worth. If some charge less than us, then ask yourself why do they consider their services worth less, and what corners are they cutting? 

Red Giraffe’s SEO specialists have a wealth of experience optimising websites to rank well in Google; we know what works and what doesn’t!  We’re focussed on one thing – getting you an awesome return on investment! Google’s algorithms change all the time – what you knew about SEO last year may be obsolete today. Let us keep up with the changes so you don’t have to.  

Red Giraffe will send you monthly reports which break down your results. Our reports are designed to be as easy to understand as possible, and show you what we’ve been doing, what ROI you’re getting, and what our plans are moving forward. 

SEO, or search engine optimisation, is the art of improving a website’s organic search engine rankings. PPC involves creating a sponsored ad, which then charges you each time someone clicks on your advert. Which one is better depends on what you’d like to achieve. PPC is typically faster and offers quick results, whereas SEO offers long term domain authority and is seen as a medium to long term marketing solution. 

Many companies choose to do both sitmultantiouslty, in order to maximise reach and attract larger audiences. 

The honest answer is that SEO works brilliantly for some businesses, and not at all for others. 

Here at Red Giraffe, we’re results-driven, and won’t take on any new SEO clients unless we’re highly confident we can get both good Google results and an effective ROI for our clients. If you’re considering SEO and would like to schedule in a coffee chat to see if SEO can work for you, then feel free to contact our friendly team for a consultation.

PLAN IT OUT

Logo and Branding

Logo design and branding are frequently linked to website design.

Although it is customary to discuss branding and logo design alongside website design, it is crucial to recognise that the two are different and must be produced before a website design can begin. As your Logo design and branding will influence the website design.

The technical requirements and functionality of your website may be more essential to you and your budget than branding and logo design in the context of your project. But for your website, you’ll need a logo and some sort of branding aspect. Even if all you need is a text-based logo, as we can provide, think about this and include it in your specifications.

PLAN IT OUT

Content

The requirement for content is one important area that is sometimes disregarded, especially in the case of new builds, in our experience project managing hundreds of website builds.

It is simple to become preoccupied with the design of your website or the functionality of your subscription-based services. However, since websites depend on their content, a lot of content must often be created for them.

Start writing your own material as soon as you can if you intend to do so. Well before the website project has started. Due to the wait for content to be produced, more than 60% of website projects are delayed in their development.

Even a small site with only five pages and an average word count of 500 to 700 words = the creation of between 2500 and 3500 words of well-written, proofed content. This quickly adds up.

A professional’s assistance in carefully written, and in the case of our copywriters, SEO-optimised material helps develop a more successful website and also minimises delays in the creation of your website, therefore it is worthwhile to consider copywriting services.

PLAN IT OUT

The Brief

The specifications and requirements of the site have a significant impact on the cost. The more precise you are in establishing and writing out your needs, the more precise your quotation will be. Consider creating a website brief if your requirements are particularly complicated. Alternately, if your project is in its early stages or is quite simple, you might want to think about bulleting your needs (or use the cost calculator tool at the top of this page).

YOUR IDENTITY

Domain Name

This is more of a tip than a requirement. If you have determined a name for your website or business.

Do these four things before you decide on it:

It should go without saying, but you should Google your prospective website or brand name to see what comes up. It may seem simple, but over the years we’ve seen dozens of individuals and companies invest a significant amount of money and time in a brand or website name. Then they have a quick Google search and it reveals that there is already a well-established, high-authority website that won’t be shifted from the top spot of Google. Consider the top three results, how closely related your brand name is to theirs, where they are located, and how credible their website is. Moz’s domain authority is a great predictor of this, https://moz.com/learn/seo/domain-authority. Consider adjusting or altering your website’s or brand’s name if a website with a high domain authority, a website that is related to or identical to yours, or both appear for those keywords. Alternatively, take into account the time and money needed to outrank their website.

Check the availability of a domain name – Any domain registrar will let you search for available domains. Utilise this to check for available domain names that are suitable. However, you will need to take into consideration that there may not be a free domain or the only one that is available is a “premium” domain that is already registered and costs hundreds of dollars. Aim for a .co.uk domain if your company is located in the UK and does the majority of its business there (this is slightly better for Googles rankings). However, in addition to your country-specific .co.uk name, you should preferably have a top-level .com domain if your business conducts business abroad.

Check to see if the company name is available if you plan to register as a limited company or LLP. You can do this by visiting Company’s House and entering the name you intend to use.

Trademarks: It’s essential to check if the name you intend to use is already protected by a trademark. They are divided up into several industries, such as restaurants, technology, advertising, finance, and so on. Check to see whether the name you intend to use is already protected by a trademark under your relevant category.

Joe Gilbert

The man behind it all.

Joe started Red Giraffe after several years of working as a Marketing Manager, with the vision of bringing a new approach to web design. 

Having had many dealings with external web agencies, Joe was often frustrated with the levels of quality that were out there, such as over promising and under delivering, dealing with websites that were impossible to edit, and waiting days on end for agencies to respond. 

His vision for Red Giraffe was a digital agency that regards customer service as highly as project delivery, makes the process for clients simple and straightforward, and delivers exceptional quality that’s second-to-none. 

His interests outside of work include hiking, climbing, mountaineering, martial arts, and travel.
