Why Search Engine Optimisation?
SEO and paid ads are two of the best ways to get traffic to your site. Without traffic, you lose sales. So both options pay for themselves. Whilst paid ads are an ongoing cost that reduces your margins, SEO is an investment that pays for itself over time.
Most paid ads cost 50p to £50 per visitor sent to your website. This price is the market value of each visitor, as it is usually set by what your competitors will pay. After investing in expert SEO services, “organic” (unpaid) search results deliver those valuable visitors for free. Those who buy from you, naturally, are worth even more.
Effective SEO also delivers visitors actively seeking your services. These are far more likely to become customers than others. Good search positioning increases trust in your brand, too. That naturally improves sales, and these SEO benefits outlast your original SEO campaign.
By comparison, ad traffic dries up as soon as you stop paying for it — and paid ads don’t build trust. Even the best offer won’t sell if people don’t trust it. However, good organic search positioning can improve click-through rates on your paid ads — which often reduces ad costs. So SEO even improves paid ad campaigns.
Small Business SEO for Cardiff, Newport, Bristol — and beyond
Most UK SEO companies, agencies and SEO consultants charge at least £500 a month for small business SEO — often far more. Even at those rates, good search engine optimisation can offer a great ROI in many sectors.
Still, investing that much to hire an SEO expert can be challenging for small firms. That’s a catch-22, because poor search positioning loses sales, making it even harder to afford. So it’s better to get started than left behind — even if you need to start small and build up your marketing as you grow.
As a web design and SEO company in Newport, South Wales, I naturally offer SEO services near Cardiff, Bristol, Swansea and Gloucester. If you’re further afield though, that’s fine — I just like to meet clients when possible.
I aim to provide safe, cost-effective SEO and digital marketing services for small businesses in the UK. So my uniquely flexible SEO packages start from just £150 a month, with specialist Local SEO services from just £75 a month.
I have been using Netcentrics’ SEO service and they have impressively managed to get over 250 of my keywords onto the first page of the search results. A very friendly and thoroughly professional service. Highly recommended. — Mark D. SEO:
Full Search Engine Optimisation Campaigns
Full SEO campaigns focus on ranking for relevant search terms nationwide or internationally, not specific locations like Cardiff or Bristol.
SEO guidelines and trending keywords change over time, and achieving stronger positioning will also let you target more competitive keywords. Your competitors’ actions will affect your SEO tactics, too.
Effective SEO campaigns need to adapt to these varying conditions. So you need expert SEO advice and a bespoke SEO strategy that evolves to build your business.
Key SEO Tactics
Still, the following elements are common in many SEO packages:
- Ongoing keyword research to keep your campaign focused on effective terms
- Competitive research — watching what your key competitors are doing SEO-wise and responding
- Tracking rankings, overall search visibility and backlink metrics
- Fixing coding errors and inefficient site structures
- Editing your pages to optimise the many “on-page” factors that search engines consider
- Helping to build safe, quality backlinks to your website
It’s very hard to beat competitors who do all this — especially if they have a head start. You’ll probably need to weave other digital marketing tactics into your strategy, too. That’s why I offer flexible SEO Packages that also include options like press releases, infographics and video marketing, from just £150 a month.

Local SEO for Cardiff, Newport & Bristol SMEs
Many small businesses around Cardiff and Bristol serve local clients, but think SEO is for national markets. In fact, Google knows where your visitors live and promotes services close to them. At least, it promotes firms that get Local SEO right.
That’s especially true for local searches like “dentists in Newport”, “vets Bristol” or “SEO Cardiff”. Such searches provide valuable, targeted leads for firms who serve local clients. Targeted leads cost far less per sale than traditional broadcast marketing, because they are more likely to buy.
Local searches also show a block of businesses and map above other “organic” (unpaid) search results that Google calls the “Local Pack”. So local SEO can really put your company on the map. That local pack also shows a star rating based on your reviews — which helps to build trust and boost sales.
How Is Local SEO Different?
Local Search Engine Optimisation focuses more on location and reputation than general SEO. So local SEO factors include structured data, reviews and the NAP citations in directory listings that search engines use to validate your business location.
Even tiny variations in NAP listings matter, but keeping listings consistent across many different directories can be tricky. Likewise, good reviews are also vital for mastering local SEO — but one poor review can have a big impact when you’re starting out.
So you need the right tools to improve and manage these factors safely and easily. That’s why I offer those Local Search Engine Optimisation tools and services from just £75/month.
