No contract. No fluff, just results.
Welcome to this page for SEO Liverpool.
My name is Graham McCormack and I’ve been unravelling the Google algorithm since 2008, I think it’s fair to say I’m good at what I do.
I’ve worked with website owners for many years all around the world and I’ve helped create multiple millions in revenue in that time.
But talk is cheap so I’m going to show you what I mean, not by showing you meaningless case studies but by putting my money where my mouth is and showing you real graphs directly from Google and Ahrefs of the results I have got for my clients.

YOU’VE BEEN DOING YOUR OWN SEO & NOW NEED HELP.
As a small business, it isn’t too difficult to handle. But once you’ve grown as an organisation or gained more exposure on the web, it may be time for professional assistance with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
Let me know what you need, I’m here for you.
YOU WANT TO REDUCE YOUR PPC SPEND & INCREASE YOUR SEO CLICKS.
Yup, something else that I’m happy to look at. It’s actually a pretty common request and one I’m happy to oblige.
YOU’RE A FREELANCER OR AGENCY WHO WANTS TO SELL SEO.
Let’s have a conversation about expanding your business. I already provide SEO to a number of agencies & freelancers. My service can be sold as white label or as a strategic partnership, let’s chat.
I was at John Moores university back in 1994 doing a degree in electronic engineering when I first came across a leaflet about “the internet”. I remember asking the lady in the learning resource centre what it was and she said “I don’t know but we’re getting it on the computers next month”.
Fast forward to today and having served 7 years in the RAF and working in IT for all of my adult life, I really started to take an interest in SEO, (If you don’t know, SEO was really born around this time and it was prior to any Google updates such as Panda and Penguin).
Having spent many years making money online for myself, in 2014 I decided I’d like to help business owners do it for their company. So I left the world of IT and started working at digital agencies, eventually becoming the director of two successful ones myself before deciding my passion really is just for SEO and not trying to stack clients and high as possible.
I love SEO, it’s a digital puzzle that I love unravelling and I’ve become good at it over the years to say the least.
My company is now Graham SEO Ltd and has been VAT registered for many years. We are a small team that work together. I still perform all of the SEO audit and strategy myself but I have writers, link builders and people who help me communicate with my clients and write regular reports for them.
But the buck stops with me. My team are like an extension of my hands and everything they do is signed off by myself as if I’d done every task myself.
No SEO campaign is the same. Your website is not the same as your competitors. You deserve an individual approach that will ultimately earn you a Return On Investment.
This is where me and my team come in. You only have to ask my current clients or look at my testimonials and results to know I’m not messing around here, I’m serious about helping you and your company in every way I can to take your revenue to new heights.
Fancy a chat?
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my Graham SEO (Liverpool) campaign be a one size fits all approach?
No, that’s why the service I offer from Graham SEO Liverpool is custom-built to your business. My team and I offer different types of SEO services. You may be a local business trying to target a local audience or a nationally focused business with a wider spread of target customers.
The age and history of your domain name count too, this can go in your favour or against you when you are doing SEO. We think of clients as either in phases 1,2 or 3.
How your website phases will change your SEO Liverpool strategy
Phase 1 is a brand-new start-up business with no history or presence on the internet.
Phase 2 is a client that has been around for a while but does not have a huge amount of visibility on the internet but does have a strong brand in the offline world and gets searched for by its brand name online.
Phase 3 means you are already performing well in search and have high organic traffic levels but want to increase this even further. Depending on what stage you are at will depend on the approach we take to your campaign.
I’m looking for a Liverpool SEO agency, why Graham SEO?
The short answer is that I’m a specialist.
I mean no disrespect to any SEO agency in Liverpool but I’ve owned digital marketing agencies and left them behind for two main reasons:
- I’m not interested in stacking my clients high just to scale and make lots of money.
- I’m passionate about SEO and search engine optimisation to me is a game but one I take very seriously.
I don’t just work from 9 to 5, I work 7 days a week and at all sorts of hours on my client SEO strategies and ensuring search engine optimisation and search engine rankings are done correctly.
For the past 5 years or so the vast majority of my clients come from word of mouth recommendations.
I become friends with most of my clients too!
If your Liverpool business is looking for a digital marketing agency or SEO experts then let’s have a chat about your SEO strategy and how this can be incorporated into your overall digital marketing strategy.
I know you do Search Engine Optimisation but do you make websites?
At Graham SEO, we don’t design websites in-house, but we partner with great web designers to ensure that your site is not only beautiful but also effective in driving traffic and conversions. Once your site is complete, we’ll work closely with you to make sure your SEO is on point, so you hit the ground running.
We can also manage your website for you, as well as anything else digital. We’re your one-stop shop for all things digital. Our clients are always surprised at how much we’re willing to do to help them with their technology needs. Contact us today to see what we can do for you.
I’m interested in the services offered on this SEO Liverpool page, how much does it cost?
It’s natural to want to know how much you will need to be setting aside each month for your SEO budget, this is completely understandable. From my point of view it would be really helpful if we can start out on the right foot together and start thinking of this fee as an investment.
How much you will need depends upon your target keywords and what your competitors have done to beat you.
There is always a gap between what you have done and what they have done and at the start of your Graham SEO Liverpool campaign this is taken into account. This is called “gap analysis”.
I will identify what pages and what backlinks they have where you do not have these and determine whether it is worth recreating them for you or (ideally) how to do it better.
Every piece of content and backlink built incurrs a cost. It is against Google’s guidelines to pay for backlinks and this is simply because they know this is how Search Engine Optimisation can be gamed, but in the real world of SEO strategy this is how the game is placed.
In all of the years I’ve worked in SEO, in my experience the vast majority of time website owners want something in return for placing a link on their website, more often than not they just want money.
So, the short answer is it depends on how fast we can safely create these links and content for you and how much/many are required. Remember, your competitors will still be acquiring new backlinks whilst you are building yours so you will need to catch up.
I’ve seen cheaper SEO services in Liverpool than you – why?
Yes you probably have but the chances are you’ve also been quoted much higher too.
Over the years, we’ve heard a lot of sayings about SEO campaigns and their costs.
“You get what you pay for” is a popular one, and it’s definitely true when it comes to SEO.
Cheap campaigns might seem appealing at first, but they often come with a lot of risks.
Google is constantly changing its algorithms, and if you’re not up-to-date on the latest changes, you could wind up getting penalized. This can be a death sentence for your website, as it can be very difficult to recover from a Google penalty.
Don’t think for a minute that Google cares about your business, they don’t.
Here’s a graph of the BBC losing 19 Million Google rankings over night:
I don’t have the same trappings of big agencies like a big team or expensive office. If Covid did one thing to Liverpool SEO agencies it levelled the playing field because most agencies now allow their staff to work from home or they stopped hiring locally.
Covid changed how you should hire your SEO provider
The success of your business online now is now more important than ever before. Covid is a real gamer changer.
An SEO team is critical for the success of any SEO agency Liverpool has to offer and historically the level of talent was reduced to who you could hire locally.
This means two things:
- Your SEO campaign might not even come from local SEO services.
- It doesn’t matter if your SEO company is in Liverpool or London.
For Liverpool businesses, Google’s search results and SEO performance can be the difference between failure and success of your online business and let’s face it, since Covid having a digital presence in the Google search results is more important than ever.
SEO extends further than an SEO audit, on page SEO or off page SEO or how you run your Google ads campaign. The website traffic you receive is based upon how the whole thing comes together to make your business an ROI.
SEO content is more important than ever and tested seo strategies coupled with great keyword research targeting local SEO Liverpool (or nationally) can make or break any Liverpool business.
Can you offer other marketing advice to help my SEO strategy?
SEO should only be a part of your overall marketing mix. Liverpool has a lot of opportunities for your company to reach out for B2B opportunities.
Websites such as:
and others such as the Government website for advice on business services e.g.
These are good places to start but never underestimate the power of places such as Linkedin and local business promotions. Think like your customer, where are they? What do they read and why? What are their pain points and how can your company solve them?
Apart from SEO how else should I be marketing my Liverpool based business
If you’re a business owner in Liverpool, you know that competition is fierce. In order to stand out from the crowd, you need to make sure you’re employing a diverse range of marketing strategies. Simply put, a one-size-fits-all approach just won’t cut it. You need to be able to reach your target audience where they are, with the right message, at the right time.
So, what does that look like in practical terms? It means having a robust online presence, for starters. That means making sure your website is optimised for search engines and that you have a strong social media game. You also need to make sure you’re taking advantage of traditional marketing channels like print and television. And, of course, word-of-mouth remains one of the most powerful marketing tools available.
The bottom line is that if you want to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace, you need to be willing to try new things and think outside the box. By employing a diverse range of marketing strategies, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your business goals.
