To work out where websites should rank, Google uses a complex ranking system that evaluates hundreds of different factors – from the number of external links (or citations) pointing at your site to depth of your content, or the length of time it takes your pages to load.
It might sound like something straight out of a Philip K. Dick novel, but your robots.txt file is key to helping Google and other search engines find your most valuable content.
Like clearing your gutters or changing the oil in your car, auditing your website’s backlink profile is one of those odd jobs that tends to get shoved to the bottom of everyone’s to-do list.
Choosing an agency is probably one of the biggest decisions you’ll make for quite some time. Choose the right one and you’ll find yourself working with a long-term partner who prioritises your growth and works tirelessly to make sure that you’re inundated with decent leads.

As well as running a digital marketing agency, I'm also a retained or on-call firefighter. This means I wear a pager and, when my services are required, my pager alerts me and I respond to it. I do this because I live in a rural community and want to help protect the people with whom I live.
