Local & National Organic SEO Service in Darlington

Professional SEO Consultants in Darlington

SEMtelligence is a leading search engine optimisation (SEO) consultancy operating in Darlington and throughout the North East. We specialise in organic SEO, local search marketing and SEO for mobile devices. Our objective is to provide affordable, professional SEO to small and medium sized businesses and start-up companies in Darlington and the local area.


We pride ourselves on honesty and transparency, two qualities often misplaced by many SEO companies. Our dedicated, client-focussed attitude and online expertise has helped us define a reputation as a SEO market leader in Darlington and the North East.


Recommended & Ethical SEO Consultants in Darlington

At SEMtelligence we use a variety of ethical search engine marketing techniques to improve website visibility in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). As professional SEO consultants we understand what it takes to achieve high rankings in all of the major search engines, especially Google. Unlike many Internet marketing services our mission is not only to generate targeted traffic for our clients, but also improve conversion rates through website usability analysis and conversion rate analysis (CRA). We do the job very well, as you can see if you read our many SEO recommendations. So if you require SEO services in Darlington, calling SEMtelligence is a must!

What is SEO?

Search engine optimisation (SEO) or website optimisation is the process of writing and coding (HTML) on your web pages making it easier for search engines to index and rank them. SEO also involves communicating directly with other sources of traffic, writing articles/blogs, social bookmarking, earning relevant & quality links, all of the following are common ethical SEO practices.


Most importantly, SEO is about optimising websites for people who use search engines and its fundamental goal is to increase targeted visitors. Always make sure you write for the end user and not the search engines!

SEO Guarantees & First Page Results

As well as providing SEO services in Darlington and the North East we also work with many clients throughout the UK. We have achieved first page results for every one of our clients, and although we deliver great results we never guarantee first page results! This practice is regarded as highly unethical and we strongly recommend staying away from any SEO company that is prepared to offer guarantees in order to secure your business.


We like to think that SEMtelligence should be your first choice when deciding which SEO company in Darlington to work with. Even if you have an SEO consultant in Darlington in mind we urge you to give us a call first. Afterall, our SEO analysis and helpful advice is free so why not take advantage of it?

No SEO Contracts or Set-up Fees

- We do not tie our clients into contracts. We are extremely confident that the SEO work we do will speak for itself.
- We do not charge any SEO set-up fees.
- All SEO services and prices are agreed before any work is done. There are no hidden charges.


All we ask for is patience. SEO is not a quick fix and it can take a minimum of 3-6 months before you see any changes in the SERPs. Search engines use sophisticated algorithms that rely on trust, therefore SEO must appear to be a natural progression otherwise your website could be penalised.

Tips on Choosing SEO Consultants

Make sure you choose an SEO company that is trusted and has been recommended by many people, don't be scared to ask questions, you are spending your hard earned cash at the end of the day! SEO consultants should never guarantee a number one position or a first page result on Google. Knowledgeable SEO consultants should have no problem achieving first page results for most search phrases. It is perfectly acceptable for SEO consultants to guarantee that they will make your website as search engine friendly as possible. Position or ranking guarantees usually originate from salespeople with demanding targets to reach rather than seasoned SEO professionals.


Similarly, avoid any SEO consultants that claim to be calling from Google, working with Google or affiliated with Google in any way. They are not. A simple rule: If it seems too good to be true then it usually is.


SEO consultants should be willing to answer questions and offer advise. Some useful questions to ask an SEO consultant you are thinking of using include:


- What SEO best practices do they follow?
- How would they increase link popularity for your website?
- What keyword research methods do they use?
- Do they research competitors websites?
- How would they improve our PageRank or TrustRank with Google?
- What HTML changes will they make to your website to increase visibility in the SERPs?
- Do they offer a website analytics and how do they track website progression?


You are not being pushy by asking important questions, you are being smart! Also, ask SEO consultants to provide a written reference or some examples of websites they have worked on. If you need reassurance then that SEO company probably isn't right for you.

What to Expect from SEMtelligence?

Website Goal Definition & Targeting Monetary Pages

It is fundamental that we connect your website with the goals of your business. SEO is as much about achieving high rankings as it is about converting users into customers. We develop a targeted strategy to maximise traffic volumes to monetary pages. Monetary pages are the pages where the goal conversion takes place. Website goals include aspects like:

- Purchasing a product.
- Making an enquiry.
- Viewing a certain page on the website.
- Subscribing to a mailing list.
- Commenting on a blog.
- Phoning a sales number.
- Changing the viewer's mind on a topic.
- Finding information.


Keyword Research

The object of keyword research is to determine the phrases that pay i.e. the ones that yield the highest ROI. Keyword research is vital and should be based on fact and not assumption. Successful SEO campaigns live or die by their keyword selection so if you get this wrong the rest of your SEO efforts will be in vain. There is no one-size fits all approach to SEO and no two campaigns are identical.


Gut Instinct vs Keyword Selection

Typically, gut instinct can be useful when it comes to product-related phrases or searches that imply local intent. For example, what keywords could you use to find this page on Google? Without any keyword research we can use our gut instinct to predict likely phrases:

- SEO Darlington
- Search engine optimisation Darlington
- SEO services Darlington
- SEO consultants in Darlington
- Darlington SEO services
- SEO company Darlington
- Darlington search engine optimisation


Although gut instinct is a good starting point, when performing keyword research you cannot beat the facts presented by keyword research tools.


Competition Analysis

We always analyse the competition. Competitor's websites offer an invaluable insight in to what is working for them. Although they do not always get it right, they do provide the benchmark for your SEO campaign.


Onsite SEO

On-site SEO or on-page SEO refers to all of the techniques that you can use on your website (editing web pages and files). This can only take place once we have identified all of your target keywords. On-site SEO is regarded as part art and part science. It involves structuring your HTML code and writing engaging copy for users. Some of the on-site SEO elements include:

- Page titles.
- Page meta data.
- Heading tags (h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 and h6).
- Great content.
- Website navigation and weighted internal links.
- Alternative text tags (alt tags) and naming images correctly.
- Use of special text.


Offsite SEO

Off-site SEO or off-page SEO refers to all of the techniques you can use to get other website owners or Internet users to cite your website as an authoritative source. Simply put, Google love links from quality resources.


Our Link Building Techniques

We never use link farms or link submission software. All link building or earning is natural and the emphasis is always on quality over quantity. Some of our link building methods include:

- Article marketing.
- Press release marketing.
- Links from topical and relevant resources.
- Social media bookmarking.
- Blogging and blogger outreach.
- Viral marketing.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY?

Choosing Lee and SEMtelligence may be the best decision you make this year.
Ben Smith - UK Property Works
5 Star Review

Finding SEMtelligence has been one of the best business contacts we have made since starting up. Finding an ethical, down-to-earth, friendly and highly interactive SEO master is no easy task. I searched high and low (was put off by lots of 'fancy talk' and high prices from other prospective SEO guys I was looking at working with) and in the end chose Lee because of his transparency, both in his costings, and in his expectations of what he could do.


Lee originally caught my attention by giving me a clear plan as to what we were going to achieve, and in what time frame. Most other SEO guys were not able to do that. He under-promised and massively over-delivered. He has been a pleasure to work with, and I will certainly be working with him at every opportunity I get. He has taken a brand new website of ours, and ranked it very quickly on Google, achieving position 1, page 1 for one of our keywords, and achieving fantastic results even on highly competitive keywords.


This guy really knows his stuff and if you are confused on anything or not sure what to do next, he always makes himself available to talk you through it and make sure that you are clear. Lee is very passionate about what he does, and I really could not recommend him highly enough to anyone that wanted to:


- Boost their Google ranking.
- Optimise their homepage.
- Completely overhaul their website.
- Build landing pages.
- Add key word rich content to their site.
- Understand back links and how to use them.
- Utilise Facebook pages.
- Use social media as a whole.
- Build their online web presence ...and on and on.

If you need any SEO work done, whether you are a large company, or a business start-up, and anything in-between, choosing Lee and SEMtelligence may be the best decision you make this year.

Having found out the hard way how difficult it is to get behind the jargon that is SEO and find someone who speaks in plain English and actually knows what they are talking about, we found Lee France and SEMtelligence to be a breath of fresh air. Lee is very personable and has excellent knowledge of SEO and websites in general and has already made a vast difference to our traffic and marketing strategy. We look forward to working with Lee in the future and have every confidence in recommending him to any small business or larger organisation.
