SEO Agency Training

How Much SEO Can I Do Myself Before I Need An SEO Agency?

We love this question! It’s something our clients ask us about all the time. So, we thought we’d expand a little on the answer here.

The reality is that there are quite a number of free tools you can use to complete various basic Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) tasks and solve straightforward site-speed issues in conjunction with your web developer. Such tools can also help you drive traffic, clicks and sales.

Tools on offer include Google Analytics, a critical source of data on traffic and visitor numbers you simply can’t afford to ignore. Whether your account is a personal or business you can add new users to carry out all or only some permissions to access your account. This can be done with the advantage of not having to share account passwords and to add several users.

Additionally, it’s worth checking out things like Google Search Console and MozBar. The latter generates instant reports on whatever site you’re visiting. Finally, WooRank website reviews offer useful insights and analysts that you may otherwise miss.

Why content is still king

If you aren’t doing this already, you should get yourself quickly into the habit of producing regular written content based on the questions you know your customers are asking. That includes social media content, blogs and articles and frequently updated, properly informative web pages. However, these things can only take you so far. Once you’ve used all the available free SEO tools as much as you can and are fully on top of creating high-quality, frequently refreshed content, it’s almost certainly time to use a Search Engine Optimisation agency.

They will have the specialist tools to identify how you are different and can set yourself apart from competitors ranking higher than you in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). An agency can also make suggestions for your content using that highly specialised toolkit, based on the things people are actually searching for. It’s true that you can do some of these things yourself, to a certain extent.

However, to really succeed, you will need to be willing and able to invest the necessary time acquiring the skills that will take your SEO to the next level, either by following a training course or committing to one-to-one training, which is what we at Front Page Advantage offer. The latter option does mean that you maximise learning about what you can do yourself in a way that’s targeted with laser-like precision, without having to spend hours training with others.
