What makes me an Ecommerce SEO expert?

My experience in Ecommerce SEO is vast. From working with large, multinational Ecommerce websites with complex multilingual and multi-regional setups to smaller, UK focussed sites selling niche products to a very specific audience, my end goal is always the same; to create sustainable and continuous organic growth.

Reviews

Emily Jacobs

G.H.BASS Europe

We used Tom to help us migrate our website from the Magento platform to Shopify. It has been a huge success. Tom advised us on what we needed to do pre move and then closely monitored the website post move with regular updates and if he had any areas of concern. I would 100% recommend his services for any web migration projects.

Commercial Washrooms

I have worked as a client of Toms for a number of years and have found him one of the most approachable and knowledgeable SEO specialists I have come across. His thirst to understand and keep abreast of technical SEO issues is second to none. I would highly recommend!

David Ramsey

Radcliffe Group

Working alongside our internal team and web development agency, Tom has managed to find the technical problems on our main website and across our journal websites, recommend a strong strategy for fixing them and guide our web developers to implement the changes. Since working with Tom, we have seen strong recovery in our organic traffic which is still growing by the day.

Smile Stories

Tom perfectly navigated us out of a curious business position where we merged 3 separate websites into a single new one … and we’re delighted with the result. We’ve had a 6-12 month head start on our Google ranking because of this.

Himanshu Karode

Axis House

Having worked with Tom when I was working at Axis House, the main objective was to improve visibility of our keywords and bring them higher on SERP. I can gladly say that we achieved #1 position for one of our key search term. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is looking to enhance their SEO.

Matt Fisher

LiveWell Dorset

Tom’s a top quality SEO specialist whom I thoroughly enjoyed working with. It was assuring to know that his safe pair of hands were maintaining and growing my website’s SERP ranking. His activity had us ranking in position zero or one for multiple key competitive search terms nationally.

More about my approach to Ecommerce SEO

Unless conducting a one-off audit, I work on a retainer model, with the first month or so being heavily research based (keyword research, competitor research, technical auditing etc.) to get a good understanding of your website/industry and to formulate a strategy and set KPIs based on research and data.

After the research phase, the next step is to implement any site-wide changes to page templates, schema, general optimisation, site architecture and more to action the things that will have a site-wide impact.

In most cases, I would then start to create an optimisation plan, identifying opportunities for improvements on individual landing pages that either already exist or need to be created in order to drive more organic traffic/conversions. Alongside these optimisations, supporting content (blog content) will be planned and created and, where required, link building is done alongside the content creation. For e-commerce sites, I often take the approach of focussing on one area (e.g. a particular category of products) at a time to maximise efforts in that area.

I always run any recommendations past my clients first and you’ll receive any optimisation suggestions in a Google Doc before being uploaded. I can manage the upload of content changes etc. myself. I’ll also be carrying out continuous technical, keyword and site-wide analysis throughout the retainer.

You’ll receive a monthly report detailing the work completed as well as an update on keyword rankings (I’ll be tracking a set of keywords defined during the initial keyword research phase), organic traffic and organic conversions/revenue. We can also set up a monthly call to discuss.

I am used to working with in-house teams, agencies and freelancers working in other digital marketing discipline such as PPC, Social and Email to ensure we are all working towards the same goal.

What is SEO?

SEO (or ‘Search Engine Optimisation’) is a digital marketing strategy which focuses on improving a website’s organic visibility in the Search Engines. It requires detailed research to understand which keywords users are searching to find the products and services you provide and a well planned strategy to ensure your website appears in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) when users search for those keywords.

The end goal with SEO is to improve keyword rankings and increase organic traffic and conversions.

Are you a Content Marketing Consultant as well as an SEO Consultant?

Yes, Content Marketing always has been and very much still is a big part of what I do.

I have been creating successful Content Marketing campaigns for over eight years, helping my clients to drive more traffic, leads and sales to their website. Whether it be regular blogging or larger whitepapers, I create content that appeals to the audience and contributes to the overall objectives of the SEO strategy.
