We, the team at Adelaide Local SEO Services started building our own websites in 2005. In that time we have built and ranked hundreds of sites.
We got into SEO originally quite by accident…
As everyone who has a website knows, Kevin Costner lied when he said "If you build it, they will come". It sounded pretty good in the movie "Field of Dreams", but in reality and especially on the internet that is simply not the case.
We soon found out that just because you have a website does not mean your going to be flooded with people.
In fact after building a few websites (forums, e-commerce sites, blogs etc) we quickly realised that there is a lot more to it than just having a website.
You need proper onsite optimisation, as well as offsite SEO to get people to visit your site. The bottom line is, there is a whole lot of other businesses out there that are competing for the same website traffic, in exactly the same markets.
Ranking a website on the search engines was much easier in 2005. The internet was nowhere near what it is today so over time we learned through trial and error proper SEO practices and techniques.
We undertook many SEO courses. We implemented and tried what we had learnt (all types of strategies) and now even to this day we keep further developing our SEO skills. Its much like the case of the hairdresser who needs to be re-educated every year for new styles to keep fresh and up with the times.
SEO is very similar in that, an SEO consultant needs constant training and practice in these techniques to stay cutting edge and relevant.
Google and Bing regularly update their search engines, not to mention social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, which have exploded in popularity recently. A good SEO consultant has to be up to date!
So our story continues of building our many websites and getting them to rank through our newly acquired SEO skills. In time, we have become proficient and experienced in the SEO world and with that started applying our techniques to friends websites and having them show up in the search engines (ranking on the first page).
Then of course, friends recommended their friends as they liked our honest, transparent, open approach and before long we decide to offer this service to the public. So in early 2010 we launched Adelaide Local SEO Services.
We have lived in Adelaide and South Australia our whole lives – we use local Adelaide businesses everyday and this makes a big difference.
Although Adelaide is smaller than Sydney and Melbourne, it's quite unique and has a different feel.
It's more a big country town, rather than another big Australian city.
