If you are a business owner, in order to scale your services and grow your business you probably realise you can’t do everything yourself.

It also makes sense to use experts in their field whenever possible to optimise the results your company can get.

If you’re looking around for an SEO Chester provider it can be difficult to know who to pick, would you go with the cheapest? Would you go with the one with the biggest office? Would you go with the one with the biggest team? The best fluffy sales pitch? The best SEO sales brochure?

When it comes to the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for your website you really do have a lot of companies and SEO services in Chester to choose from. So how do you choose?

What it all comes down to is only the results matter.

Digital agency SEO staff come and go, they won’t show you their recent results, they’re only as good as the skills of their team. There’s also the chance you will get swallowed up as a number within their books. I’ve seen it all, been there and done that.

This is why I show YOU my results and only work with a handful of clients at a time.

I 100% stand by what I do and I can’t wait to show you increased website traffic, brand visibility and most importantly revenue from your investment with my services.

Search Engine Optimisation Chester Services

SEO is my life passion. I left an 18 year career in IT behind (over 10 years ago now) to pursue SEO full time. It’s my hobby as well as my job and it’s true to say that I’m an absolute geek when it comes to winning with search.

I was at John Moores University in 1994 when the internet first started to emerge and I was hooked from day one. I started helping clients with their own business in 2008 and after several years working at digital agencies created a bespoke SEO Consultancy service in 2014.

I am ex-forces and pride myself on my integrity and ability to get results.

I WANT to help YOU and I will do everything in my power to ensure your business brand grows organically online.

Search Marketing Services For Chester

As a freelance SEO Consultant offering services to Chester clients, I also offer services to digital agencies in Chester too.

This is why my services may be somewhat different to those of other Chester SEO services, I don’t follow a strict rule or give you a standard package that may or may not work.

Your success is too important to me, my own reputation has been built upon helping business just like you succeed and that’s why everything I do is bespoke and will be adjusted as necessary over the course of the campaign.

I have a wide range of technical skills and many years of working with Google and can apply what I know to almost any technical requirement you have.

For example, did you know that Google personalises your results? It matters where you are when you search, which device you search from and which keywords you searched for previously. If you were to type in “solicitors” in Chester and then “solicitors” in Saltney you would likely get different results. You don’t need to append your location to the search either.

On the other hand if you type in “can I sue my employer?” you may get the same results in each instance. It also depends upon which device you are using and what you searched for previously.

However, if you were to type in a none location-based search such as “how do I get more visitors to my website?” you will see national results.

This can all seem quite confusing if you do not fully understand how to use the Google algorithm to your advantage and yet it is a world that I have worked in for clients of all sizes over a long time.


Great to do business with and really only cares about doing a good job for his clients. Very driven, motivated and reasonably priced. Friendly guy too.

Oskar Nowik, Oskar SEO

We’re very happy to be associated with Graham SEO and saw a great uplift very early on in our main keyword ‘driving lessons Chester’ – highly recommended service!

A very honest & trusted service. The effort put into our website and attention to detail was so good we asked about 2 other sites we own too.

John, Collect My Clothes

We’ve been with Graham SEO for a number of years now and are happy with our results. Recommended.

Chris Holmes, Zut Media

We had been with two other well known SEO providers before turning to Graham SEO – seriously, give this guy a go!

Louis Wilson, Villa Romana

5 Stars

I went with Graham because he ranks #1 in so many locations I thought to myself “why would I want to go with anyone who does SEO who ranks lower” and I was right – Graham is AMAZING at what he does and my company can’t thank him and his team enough. 100% recommended.

We were on the verge of re-signing with our existing SEO company, we decided to get additional quotes and we are so glad we did. Graham SEO are streets ahead of the competition when it comes to understanding how SEO works and getting results from it.

I have worked with Graham SEO now on multiple projects because he get’s results. I used to go with big agencies but found a much better service  by working with a person dedicated to a small group of clients who can give me the attention my business requires. I stand by that decision all these later and highly recommend Graham SEO to everybody.

Very happy with the service from Graham SEO, much better service than previous agencies I have been with.

Organic Search Engine Optimisation Chester (Not Paid Clicks)

Unlike Google Ads SEO results are “organic” which means you don’t pay per click.

Organic SEO is no longer restricted to ranking a website for single keywords and is topical. This is because 85% people looking for your business don’t yet know you exist and may be a far way off from typing in that keyword in the 15%.

The way Google and other search engines work these days is to personalise results, so if you can attract the 85% of people not yet ready to buy to your website you can influence them when they are ready to buy.


Organic SEO allows you to rank for hundreds or even thousands of search terms (known as keywords). If you tried to do this using Google Ads you will quickly burn through a large amount of money.

With PPC the results are instant but you pay per click as the name implies. SEO takes longer but the results tend to stay in place, the clicks are free and a good SEO campaign will keep growing your brand visibility and the amount of keywords your website appears for when people search.

The aim is to grow the amount of leads flowing into your business and increase your brand visibility and in the 10 years we’ve operated we’ve become quite good at this to say the least.

Here’s how it works:

I will make a technical assessment of your website and set about fixing all of the errors that will affect your SEO.

Here are some of the things that I’ll look at the site-wide level:
XML Sitemap with Google Console submission
HTML Sitemap with a footer link
Google Analytics set up and basic goals set up
Copyscape & Siteliner checked
HTTP to HTTPS mixed content assessment

Advanced Google searches do not reveal anything untoward (i.e. hacked pages, page bloat, tags indexed, page/image cannibalisation etc)

Here are some of the things I’ll look at at a page level:
URL structure is user friendly
Each target page is mobile-friendly
Page / Post loads fast so the User Experience isn’t hampered
The chosen keywords are correct for the page
Page schema is in place as appropriate i.e. service page, FAQ page, blog post
Keywords are in the URL, meta title, H1, first few sentences
Meta description entices people to click it (CTR)
The first image on the page is the name of the primary keyword (if possible), alt text contains the primary keyword
Sub-headers contain related LSI and/or keyword synonyms
The content is not plagiarised from another website
The content is unique and useful for the reader
Word count is comparable (minimum) or better than similar top 5 results
No mixed insecure content
No broken Outbound Links
Page or post has at least 1 link from another page or post
There is a prominent Call To Action (CTA) on the page
The page/post content matches the User Intent (UI)
Content contains Outbound Links (if appropriate) that help the reader
Post has the ability to be socially shared
URL has no cannibalisation or is making use of the canonical tag
Page / Post has links from other relevant pages/posts on the website
Content length is sufficiently comparable to competitors but better for the reader
URL has no craw-ability issues

2. I will ensure that your website is backed up and configured correctly in Google Analytics, Google Search Console, if required Inspectlet and other tracking software. I will make sure that the appropriate events are being tracked as goals and that I am recording your Google rankings ready for your monthly report.

3. I will then make an assessment for the opportunities for quick wins on your website and set about creating these to ensure success.

4. I will then assess your competitors and create a strategy based on their weaknesses.

5. I will look for opportunities for growth beyond what you or your competitors are doing and continue to track, amplify and improve your website and the new content that may have been produced each and every month.

Does that sound like a good plan?
