SEO Services Southport
Why Use SEO For Your Southport Business?
Unless your business relies upon footfall traffic to a shop, then Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in 2024 needs to be a part of your digital marketing mix. Your footfall is now digital, it’s online.
Your customers use Google and other methods of searching for the type of products or services that you offer, so ranking above your competitors in Google is now more important than ever.
Having an SEO plan of action will get your business ranking above your competitors, so when your customers are searching online, using relevant search terms or keywords, they find your website before your competitors.
So How Does An SEO Strategy Work?
If I were to carry out a series of actions to my website that within a 30 day period caused it to rank #1 in Google and each day I gave you my list so you could copy it too, then it would make sense that you would competing with me on day 31 for the top Google ranking position.
We can use tools such as Screaming Frog SEO Spider, Ahrefs, Google Analytics, Google Search Console and more to uncover everything that your competitors have done to be successful. We can also perform this on your own website, this will include everything “off” your website too such as your backlink profile, E-E-A-T signals and reputation to uncover everything we need to know in order to bridge the gap between your business and your competitors.
Is SEO cheaper than Google Ads?
Paid adverts can be switched on and off and you will pay per click, so you incur a charge each time someone clicks your advert.
Your website is made up of pages and they actually appear for many keywords, not just one or two.
For example this page is targeting the keyword SEO Southport but it actually appears for many variations of this such as search engine optimisation Southport, SEO company Southport, local SEO southport, Southport SEO services and many more as you can see from the image here.
Traditional Keyword is Dead
Your website is the same as mine in that the pages on it appear for dozens if not hundreds of keywords.
It does not just appear for a singular keyword. Google hasn’t work on a single keyword basis for a long time.
Search is topical based and Google understands that people type in a lot of variations of a keyword to say what they mean.
It is personalises results too.
This means when someone may be typing in a keyword their intent is of paramount importance. When a person starts their search online they don’t always begin with the most urgent intent. For example, if your Southport business builds conservatories, a customer may type in “how much do conservatories cost” or “do I need planning permission to build a conservatory” and then eventually may type in “conservatories Southport” or “conservatory builders near me”.
Now imagine how much you would need to pay for PPC for all of those keywords.
With SEO, the only fee you pay for is your retainer. As your digital partner, my team and I will not only get you all of those keywords but we’ll also make sure that your website keeps inline with the many hundreds of Google updates per year, we will make sure that your competitor does not muscle in too.
Not only this but I can use my technical SEO and background in IT to offer my help with any aspect of your digital that you need.

Meet Your New SEO Team
I am the author of this page and have been doing SEO since around 2008. I’ve been involved with the internet since it first began back in 1994, creating websites and coding. I decided to start this website in 2014 just to experiement on but I managed to outrank all of my local competitors and it led to me gaining clients from it. I’ve moved through the ranks over the years from working at digital agencies, owning a digital agency and now being an SEO specialist. Graham SEO Ltd was incorporated in 2017 registered for VAT in 2020 and now turns over multiple six figures per year all from word of mouth recommendations.
I’m ex RAF, play guitar and bass in bands and love my VW campervan (T5). I’m passionate about SEO and often travel and work from my campervan living the best life I can.
Pete is actually an ex GP (doctor) who invented a cure for snoring and decided not to return to medical practise. We met by chance through our daughters. At the time I had a issue with my throat and couldn’t speak. With time on his hands, Pete kindly offered to talk to some of my clients on my behalf.
He got to know more about what I do and we became good friends and started working together, as the saying goes, we never looked back. That was about four years ago and things are still going strong.
Pete won’t admit it, but these days he’s a great SEO and handles the majority of my customer enquiries including reporting and get’s stuck into a good deal of the day to day work too.

When it comes to publishing content she really knows her stuff and has a strict code of when it comes to quality assurance.
We all muck in together with a lot of the tasks we do and Katie is no exception, willingly underaking any new part of the strategy as and when required.

Case Studies & Result Graphs
The Benefits of SEO
The graphs below are taken from real live results in Google Analytics. They are are a testament to our SEO results and what we can achieve for you.
This is a Southport based company who wanted to increase the footfall (website visitors) to their website. In the period of about a year we increased their website traffic from 18,366 to 122,214 users per month and page views from 34,721 to 148,268.
This case study shows how we increased the revenue for an eCommerce store from £823,322.48 to £1,445,922.29 within a two year period.
As you can see the client was already performing well but this gradual increase in traffic and revenue was the direct result of the SEO actions we undertook over this period.
Although we support businesses from Southport, we work with client all over the world. This case study shows how we took our client from $99,244.53 to $1,303,829.11 in under a year.
The client is actually based in Manchester but targets an international audience and the dollar is the currency of the internet. The actual overall revenue was far greater than this but you will notice that Google Analytics have been segmented to show just the Organic Traffic side of the business.
Graham SEO Ltd & SEO Southport
If you read the section on this page about the team, then you will know that I (Graham McCormack) am the author of this page.
I am originally from Southport, just off Haig Avenue and went to Christ the King School and the Southport Tech before heading off to the RAF. I now live in the Wirral with my wife and kids but a lot of my family are still living in Southport and I visit regularly.
So, Southport has a special place in my heart. In fact my brother Neil (Neil SEO) is now also working in the SEO space which is great to see.
Like Neil, I had a long career in IT support before turning to SEO in 2008 and between us there is nothing we cannot help you with when it comes to digital support.
