We have been with Clickthrough for over a year now with our eCommerce store. I am impressed with their strategy, transparency and reporting, their ethical approach and most of all the results we have achieved. Return on Investment is the key for us ensuring we get a meaningful return and we can attribute 50% growth from this engagement in one of the most competitive categories. They are a specialist boutique provider and most importantly for us they don’t work with any of our competitors.

Given my experience in SEO marketing, I was wary about the "Google Hacking" SEO tricks. I chose Clickthrough after extensively researching their methods and can assure you this is e-Commerce SEO at it's core framework. We have seen great, long lasting results and will continue to work with Clickthrough because they are just that good!

My AdWords training went great! I absolutely achieved my training objectives – I can now go through our Google AdWords and I understand what I’m looking at and feel confident to start setting up some campaigns. I’d rate the course a 5I really liked how thorough the course was and how it breaks Google AdWords down into parts so it’s not as daunting. Overall I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot!

I've worked with Glen and Clickthrough over the last 10 years and could not recommend him and his business highly enough. Glen and the team are professional, reliable and are experts in their field. They also provide an excellent group training service that has been well received by members of the Interactive Bureau of New Zealand.

I was very disappointed after my last SEO company took a lot of money to spam my site with back links. The team at Clickthrough rebuilt my faith in search engine companies. They used smart SEO & AdWords techniques that led to an immediate sales uplift.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

What is a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) service?

What is SEO?

A Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) service is normally provided by an SEO company. It is the process of helping a website and, if required, the local listing of a business, rank better in the organic search engine results pages (SERPs). The term “organic” also gets referred to as “natural” or  “free” rankings, in contrast to Google Ads, which is considered to be a “paid” form of search engine marketing (see next section). 

What is Google Ads?

What is Google Ads?

Google describes its Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords and Google AdWords Express) service as “an online advertising solution that businesses use to promote their products and services on Google Search, YouTube, and other sites across the web. Google Ads also allows advertisers to choose specific goals for their ads, like driving phone calls or website visits. With a Google Ads account, advertisers can customize their budgets and targeting, and start or stop their ads at any time.”

Google Ads is also referred to as search engine marketing (SEM), Pay Per Click (PPC) and Cost Per Click (CPC) marketing. Google Ads campaign types currently include:

  • Search Network campaign
  • Display Network campaign
  • Shopping campaign
  • Video campaign
  • App campaign

How to select the best SEO & SEM agency?

seo-company-selection-tips

Choosing the best SEO & Google Ads agency to match your needs is a critical yet complex decision. Read our recent blog article or the following to guide your decision making:

  • Do you need an eCommerce SEO or Google Shopping specialist, or are you looking for an SEO agency to optimise your brand, local services or company website? Search engine optimisation & PPC marketing has become quite specialist, we recommend you choose a provider that has a proven capability working with a website like yours.
  • Do you need a large corporate SEO/SEM services provider, a boutique provider or a contract AdWords or SEO expert? Your decision should be guided by:
    • the level of risk you want to take e.g. a contract SEO expert would be higher risk 
    • whether or not you want to be a key client e.g. most boutique providers don’t take on clients that compete
    • if you want to be part of a diverse client portfolio e.g. a corporate SEO provider with a large client portfolio
  • What are the primary SEO or Google Ads issues that need to be addressed and how these map to the competencies of the companies you are considering? For example, if your main requirement is for technical SEO services, then select an SEO agency that is strong in technical SEO. 
  • Does the SEO provider use a white hat SEO approach, do they outsource their SEO to an offshore provider that uses a more aggressive and risky approach that may bring short term results though could get your site banned?
  • Can the agency walk the talk? For example, if you Google key local search terms like SEO Auckland, you will see our website ranked at the top of Google Maps, which infers we can do the same for your business.

How quickly will it take to get SEO results?

seo-results-tips

We live in a would of instantaneous gratuity where everything needs to happen immediately, including results. However, we liken SEO to a marathon, more than a sprint, where you get results for continuous effort. Even AdWords takes ongoing nurturing.

Consider the following points before you decide if an organic search engine optimisation program is right for your business:

  • Over 70% of clicks from the search engines come from organic search, not paid search (AdWords).  But like all important sales tools, it takes constant time and effort to get a website to the top of the organic search engine results pages and stay there. 
  • The days of using aggressive SEO tactics, such as keywords stuffing and buying excessive amounts of backlinks, are thankfully long gone. A modern SEO strategy requires regular amounts of excellent content, white hat link building and a focus on also improving the user experience (UX). Modern day search engine optimisation is a lot more labor intensive and costly to get right. Though the upside can be sensational.   
  • The constant updates by search engines like Google, also ensure search engine optimisation remains a marathon, a battle against the SEO elements, to stay ahead of the game. A challenge we thoroughly enjoy!

How much does SEO cost?

SEO ROI guide

Search Engine Optimisation is dynamic with many moving parts that can be beyond the control of your SEO Agency (e.g. Google Updates), which makes pricing an SEO project quite tough. Nonetheless, here are a few tips to guide how much money you should spend on your organic search program and how to discern between the various SEO pricing options:

  1. Start by setting your program goals. Ask your search marketing partner to benchmark performance, then forecast your SEO & Google Ads goals for the next 12 months. An example goal may be to increase sales from SEO by 45%. Be sure to set short (e.g. 3 month), medium term (6 month) and long term goals that help you understand if the program is on track.  
  2. When you set your SEO goals, ensure your SEO company takes into account market factors such as the competitiveness of the search terms you are targeting with a SWOT analytics of your key competitors. Also ensure they conduct a detailed SEO audit of your domain and provide you with an initial roadmap of SEO activities, with pricing. 
  3. Once you’ve set your goals, ask your agency to propose a plan with pricing to achieve those goals. Also be sure to ask which SEO services are included in their budget and which services are additional. For example website copy writing, onpage implementation and listing fees.  
  4. Finally, set aside a contingency budget for unforeseen changes in the market that may require additional SEO or Google Ads investment, such as Google Updates, new market entrants and incresed competitor activity. 

How should your measure your SEO results?

SEO performance guide

With 80% of New Zealanders using a search engine before they buy, SEO is now established as a key tactic for generating results. Here are a few tips to measure the effectiveness of your natural search program:

  • SEO generates clickthroughs from a search engine to your website or eCommerce store. The user then has to decide if they want to make a purchase or contact you. As such, it is of vital importance that you also measure how well conversion related tactics are complimenting your SEO campaign. For example, heatmap tracking shows you what improvements need to be made to your web pages to convert more visitors from the search engines to sales. 
  • Tracking organic rankings is key, especially when you group them into similar terms (e.g. by area ‘Auckland’ or service ‘SEO services’). Also benchmark your terms against competitors. Grouping similar terms allows you to pinpoint where your rankings are growing or in decline. 
  • Remember, SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. Regular technical and onpage analysis of your SEO strategy is vital, especially when using open source CMS systems that can be buggy. 
  • Ensure you analyse the backlink profile of your website. Unfortunately, linkspam and negative SEO tactics are now the norm in New Zealand. And its your company that gets penalised, not your SEO services provider, so run your own diligence.
