When your site is live, you’ll want to ensure that as many potential clients as possible can discover you.

Reynard can assist you to drive more traffic and get more leads though Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).


Search Engine Optimisation (often abbreviated to SEO) should be the cornerstone of your digital marketing success.

Search Engines should probably be better named ‘answer engines’ as their whole business model relies on being able to give their users what they believe is the most is the most relevant answer to whatever it is they are looking for. Once they stop showing the most relevant results, users will go elsewhere.

So it follows that your site should be optimised for search engines to show them that your page is the most relevant for a particular subject. Easy, huh?

Search engines should be called ‘answer engines’

From the start of your digital marketing activity, your website should be putting its best foot forward to create the best impact on both your visitors and the search engines’ bots and spiders as they crawl your site.

But optimising for machines is one thing. Balancing that with ensuring that site is also usable, readable and functional for your visitors is also imperative.


There are so many factors that go into the search engines’ algorithms that determine a page’s rank on a results page that SEO has often been described as both a science and an art. Indeed, Backlinko put together a list of 200 Google ranking factors! Search Engine Land created a useful infographic of The Periodic Table of SEO Success Factors which might make easier reading.

The exact criteria and their relative importance are ever-changing. If you want to lift the bonnet further on SEO, we recommend that all our clients take a read through the Moz Beginner’s Guide to SEO. It’s probably the most read and respected guide on the web.

At the very least, it will give you a decent overview of search optimisation so you can have an informed and productive chat with your SEO agency of choice (hint, hint).


Of course. You could probably have a go at wiring or plumbing your own house too, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should.

That said, if you’d like to go this route, we can audit your site and wider web presence, devise SEO strategies and train individuals to take on that role. This option may help to keep costs down and give you control of your activities.


Well, you asked! If you haven’t got the time, resource or skilled (or at least trainable) staff in-house to look after your SEO, then you should be looking at a search engine optimisation company.

We provide SEO services in Colchester. Our experts only employ White Hat (best practice, above board, legit, legal…) on-site and off-site techniques, as well as using the latest industry-standard products and tools from Google and other specialist SEO software companies.

We can help if you want to have the best SEO built into your brand new website. We can build your website ourselves or happily play with other designers and developers. Or, if you want to improve the SEO on your existing site, we can assist with that too.

You can choose from a one-off project fee or retain us on a monthly basis to improve your site’s optimisation.

Remember, SEO isn’t always an instant fix – it can take weeks or even months to deliver results. If immediate results are required, perhaps social media marketing or paid media might be appropriate to run in parallel?
