What is Local SEO?
Local SEO is when you take your SEO efforts and focus them on a specific town, city, county. Some business have a physical location. For example, hairdressing salons, dog grooming parlours or a mechanic’s workshop. For other businesses, it may only be feasible and practical for them to service a particular. For example, an electrician in Southampton may only want to drive to locations within Southampton or stay only within Hampshire.
Do I need a specialist consultant for Local SEO?
Short answer is no. There are aspects that can really help to compliment a well-optimised website. Such as having a fully completed Google My Business listing and having a presence on local directories. Depending how competitive your industry is, you may want to seek the expertise of a freelance SEO Consultant in Southampton.
How much does SEO cost in Southampton, Hampshire?
SEO agencies tend to work on a monthly retainer basis. SEO is a long-term undertaking and needs regular, consistent monitoring and implementation. A monthly SEO retainer would cost anywhere in the region of £500-£5,000 a month. This will largely depend on the scope of work, number of services. Make sure to give a detailed brief as possible so your SEO Agency can supply an accurate quote.
How long does SEO take to work?
Unfortunately, SEO is not an overnight task. Results take time anywhere from 3-4 months up until 12 months and beyond. Also, it does require consistent and regular effort. We’ve found a retainer set-up works very well. Once again, we can tailor a package which can hopefully fit with your budget and requirements.

Are SEOs in London better than SEO Consultants in Southampton?
There is a perception that London is the hub of digital and therefore ‘better’. It is certainly more competitive in London so being better at sales may need to be a necessity. The digital game is ever-changing including SEO and as long as your SEO Consultant / Agency has the experience and remain continually up-to-date. I like to look ahead of the game by anticipating the trends. By ensuring the SEO strategy and tactics employed are future-proofed so our clients benefit from this. I can’t stress enough how important the client/supplier fit is. Some may like to baffle with science or go hard on the sales. My concern is SEO success for my clients because my business depends on it.
Are you in London or Hampshire?
I’m based in Southampton but have clients in London, Manchester, Leeds (all over). The beauty of digital resides in the fact it doesn’t matter where we are. So long as the communication is effective. With SEO being technical sometimes it’s a lot easier to have an email or report to digest. Then have a catch up call to go through anything that isn’t clear.
What is a virtual SEO agency?
A virtual digital agency is basically an agency where everyone works remotely and not tied to a building. The Corona Virus put remote working to the test and businesses now have first hand experience and have seen it works. In some cases productivity was improved. A digital agency should embrace modern, real world working. The 9 to 5 is arguably an outdated concept. With the evolution of smartphone, we do not switch off. There are downsides to this but a virtual agency exploits the ability to work in a flexible manner and fit schedules of talented freelancers. The focus within a virtual agency is quality. Chaining creative and technical people to a desk is not always conducive. The output and results is where we decide to place emphasis on.
WordPress Website Builds & Local SEO Results
Sean Mullins has been a local Southampton SEO Consultant and Web Designer since 2005 and has optimised a range of local websites, below are a few examples (N.B some of these sites may have dipped ranking wise due to the fact that Search Engine rankings fluctuate and some of them were built a considerable time ago):
WordPress Web Design (we also build optimised websites)
The SEO Strategy Consultancy has built their success by having local page 1 rankings. This is why we are so passionate to help business get online and found. One of our favourite mottos is: ‘What’s the point of a pretty website if no one can find it!’
Sean built a little 3 page website in 2010 that ended up on page one for ‘Web Designer Southampton’ (not surprisingly called www.southamptonwebdesigner.co.uk: now www.seostrategy.co.uk). It was a portfolio website to prove to a prospective employer that we had “hands-on” skills within web development and Search Engine Optimisation.
We still offer web design and actually prefer to build or re-build sites to ensure SEO is placed within the heart of the build. Not as an adjunct or bolt-on. This way we can ensure the website has the best possible chance of raking, attracting relevant visits and converting. But there are many times we take on well-built sites that just need some SEO TLC.
The digital arena has changed a lot over the past 10 years or so. Smartphone and technology is engrained into our everyday use and only increasing. The competition is now fiercer than ever.
You may be an established business who has always used an SEO Consultancy but may have found yourself disillusioned with their service or rankings slip. I’ve found myself in many occasions inheriting clients due to the fact their previous supplier had utilised spammy black hat SEO techniques such as deceptive link building. As an SEO Consultant it’s really disappointing to see irresponsible and short sighted SEO agencies jeopardise another business’ positioning within the search engines. If you’ve found yourself in this position I would encourage talking to a professional consultant or Agency like myself to assess the damage and weigh up the options.
