I’ll Help You Get More Customers From Google
You probably know how important it is to rank high in Google. Most people turn to Google to find businesses in their local area and they mainly click on the top 3 search results.
Those top 3 websites get around 10 times the visitors of sites that are at the bottom of page 1. And if you’re on page 2, well only around 2% of searchers ever make it there.
In today’s competitive online environment, it’s critical that your website is ranking high in Google.
That’s why SEO (search engine optimisation) is so important to your business.
So What are the Benefits of SEO?
How would your business change if you ranked number 1 for your target keywords?
How much more business could you do in a month?
For example, if you’re an electrician and a potential client typed in “electrician Morayfield” and finds you first, it would have a massive impact on your bottom line. Not to mention the brand awareness and ‘prestige’ that a #1 ranking brings – you’ll have competitors asking “what are you doing to be #1 in Google”.
My name is Will Mullins. I’m an SEO specialist and I’ve been doing SEO for Morayfield businesses since 2010. I’ve worked with many Morayfield clients in the following industries:
- – Doctors
- – Plumbers
- – Building Inspectors
- – Surgeons
- – Lawyers
- – Ecommerce Stores
- – Electricians
- – Cleaners
- – and many more
My primary job is to help you:
- – Increase traffic to your website.
- – Get Higher Keyword Rankings.
- – Gain new clients or customers organically.
- – Increase your monthly revenue.
- – Track key metrics of success
So What Exactly is SEO?
SEO or search engine optimisation is the process of improving your website’s keyword rankings in search engines ‘organically’.
The higher you rank on Google’s first page of results, the more traffic you get. See below a breakdown of how much traffic goes to the top 10 website positions in Google.
SEO ensures your website shows up high in search engine rankings for keywords that potential customers are searching for. Once you’re up there, you’ll start getting free organic traffic without having to pay for Ad clicks.
So How Do You Rank Higher in Google?
Every time someone does a Google search, algorithms decide which website to show first based on what keywords were typed in. Google will show websites that they think are the best result.
3 of the main factors the algorithm uses are:
- Relevance – how relevant is the search term to the services you offer?
- Location – are you in the same geography as the searcher?
- Trust – Does Google trust your website and business as an authoritative leader in your industry?
The above factors have many items within but essentially Google will use around 200 different signals in their search algorithm.
Google’s primary goal is to match the searcher with the correct website (and also to make money from ads….)
The algorithm gets smarter every year and as SEO competition increases, it becomes critical to have a comprehensive SEO strategy for your website.
What Does An SEO Campaign Look Like? (I.e. what do I do?)
The SEO Audit
I need to know where your website sits in terms of it’s technical soundness and how it compares against your competitors. This shows:
- – Website Health Score.
- – Technical errors.
- – On Page SEO Structure.
- – Page Content Analysis.
- – Competitor metrics.
- – Keywords and search volumes (market analysis).
On Page Website SEO
On-page website SEO is critical to effective search engine optimisation. Your website is the foundation that all other SEO initiatives are built on.
Without the right on page structure, all other SEO strategies will struggle to impact your rankings and traffic.
My on page SEO methodology for websites starts by doing an in-depth optimisation of the technical elements of each page including SEO title tags, H tags and internal linking to ensure that your site is properly optimised. Other elements include:
- – Image alt tags optimised.
- – Appropriate internal and external linking.
- – Image size optimisation.
- – Correct 301 redirections.
- – Consolidation of content.
- – Appropriate canonicalisation.
When you do a locally focused search, such as ‘lawyer Morayfield,’ the top results and the Google My Business ‘3 Pack’ map are heavily influenced by three things: proximity of the business to the searcher, relevance of the website to the query and Google reviews.
Local SEO is particularly important to Morayfield businesses because most of your work probably comes from your surrounding suburbs.
Without local SEO as part of your overall SEO strategy, your business could be missing out on a great source of revenue – local clients. And if you have competitors in your area optimising their website while you’re not, you won’t end up in that valuable 3 pack of local Google results – which get up to 30% of page 1 Google traffic.
Optimising your site for local search includes:
- – Optimising Google My Business.
- – Removing Duplicates.
- – Claiming Healthcare Directories.
- – Page Content Analysis.
- – Tracking & improving search metrics.
- – Directory listings.
Content & Backlinks
Content is still hugely important in SEO. Having high-quality content on your website not only shows your expertise, but it also shows Google that you are an authority which helps you rank higher in search engine results. Google now places a high value on a website’s E.A.T. (Expertise, Authority and Trust). Google needs to know if you’re a trusted expert in your field, and if they agree (based on many signals from your site and around the web), they’ll rank you higher.
Posting new content to your website can also help you ‘pick-up’ new keywords in Google, boost your local SEO rankings, and help your website rank higher on search engines and in search results.
Frequently Asked Questions about SEO
How long does SEO take to achieve results?
It can often take as little as a few weeks to get some good ‘quick win’ results. This depends on a lot of factors but for websites that I see that are ‘un-optimised’, I can make some subtle changes that will yield big results. I usually can spot these during my complimentary SEO Audit. After the initial ‘push’, you’ll need a long term campaign to build your foundation of website authority in Google. I wouldn’t do SEO for less than 6 months as you’ll not realise significant benefits from the work. But remember, if you’re patient and see SEO as a long term strategy, you’ll gain long term compounding benefits for your business.
As long as Google is still a dominant force and people still go there to find local services, you should view your SEO as an ongoing marketing channel. It’s most likely your competitors are also doing SEO so you’ll need ongoing optimisation to keep your site in the local search results. Google changes their algorithm often (up to 500 updates per year) which is another good reason to continue your SEO optimisation.
How long have you been doing SEO?
I’ve been doing SEO since 2010 and building websites since 1999. In that time, I’ve helped many Morayfield businesses generate more customers from Google.
Does new content really matter in SEO for websites?
New content in itself is not essential. There is a misconception that you need to post content at a certain frequency. BUT, having a content strategy that involves posting the RIGHT content which targets the right keywords and topics is a very good way of helping your site rank well. Generally speaking, you should have a page for each service you offer if there is a different type of patient for that service. People will search very specifically so having content dedicated to a specific customer is important. You should also have supporting blog content that talks about related topics to the main services.
Should I be concerned with ranking on search engines other than Google?
Google still has more than 95% market share in Australia so I will focus on optimising for Google as I have a decent understanding of how their algorithm works. You’ll find that you’ll do quite well in Bing also. I do add sites to Bing’s Business for local places system as it’s a quick way to get significantly more exposure there.
Do you write content for websites?
I can look after this for you but sites that are written by the expert will always do better than sites that are not. If you’re stuck about what to write, I can provide content outlines and topics that should be written about. I’ll also give you advice about specific guidelines that should be adhered to.

What is the Right SEO Strategy for Your Business?
To figure out what your business needs, I’ll complete an SEO audit analysis and show you the following:
- – Where your website ranks Vs your competitors.
- – Why you’re ranking where you are and how we can fix it.
- – The gaps between your business and your competitors.
How do I measure SEO success?
There are 3 primary metrics I look at to assess success.
- – Traffic to your website.
- – Keyword rankings
- – Conversions / actions taken on your site such as phone number clicks, contact form completions and email clicks.
I will send you these in a monthly report. You can also access these during the campaign with your own SEO dashboard.
How much does SEO cost?
The cost of the SEO campaign will depend on factors such as:
- – Competitiveness of your industry.
- – Geographical targeting (e.g. Local Vs National).
- – Number of services you offer (which will increase the number of keywords and pages that need to be worked on).
How is SEO different from Google Ads?
Google Ads are a form of PPC (pay-per-click) marketing; this means that you pay Google every time someone clicks on your Ad. While Google Ads will get you on page 1 faster, SEO is a long term, more cost-effective approach that focuses on organic results. SEO and Google Ads can also be used together to achieve a comprehensive overall marketing plan for your business. Learn more about Google Ads management.
Do you offer both SEO and Google Ads?
Yes. I can manage both of these for you so you can completely take over page 1 of Google!

If your business isn’t maximising Google visibility, then you need an SEO specialist to help you.
