Get expert technical SEO support
“A great company with a wealth of knowledge & know-how that they actively share and educate their clients with. They keep their information relevant and up-to-date with any changes and updates in best practices. It's nice working with a company that educates you rather than just telling you what to do. I would recommend Footprint Digital without a second thought.”
Ben Thrower

Whether you need consultancy or project management, our experts will help you overcome various Technical SEO challenges, including website migrations, international SEO, eCommerce and local SEO. We specialise in SEO for WordPress but can offer technical support for all CMS platforms.

What’s included in our service?

  • Consultancy. If you have in-house marketers carrying out work on your site, our team of experts can advise you on best practices and ensure you aren’t inadvertently harming your site’s rankings.
  • Content strategy. Since Google’s helpful content update, high quality content is more important than ever. You’ll need an expert data-backed strategy to offer value to your visitors – otherwise, they may take their business to your competitors. 
  • Content consolidation & support. If you’ve got multiple pages that target the same keywords, we’ll help you combine this content into one encompassing page to strengthen your keyword targeting. 
  • Keyword mapping & gap opportunities. You’ll get a document of your URLs and the keywords they should be targeting. If we identify a high-quality keyword that you should be ranking for and don’t have a suitable page, we’ll advise on creating new landing pages to capture this important traffic.
  • Load speed & mobile SEO review. Did you know that with every second of delay in page load time, your bounce rate increases? A slow site isn’t a user-friendly (or mobile-friendly) site. Don’t let your visitors become a wasted click.
  • Website architecture & structure review. Ensure your website follows structural guidelines and is equipped for SEO performance. 
  • Crawling & indexing analysis. We’ll make sure all important pages on your site can be found and that all necessary redirects are in place.
  • Google penalty removal. If you have a link penalty, we’ll submit a disavow file of all your toxic links to Google on your behalf. We can also get this removed by improving your overall content quality or fixing your website to adhere to Google’s guidelines.
  • E-E-A-T benchmarking. We’ll show you how much authority Google perceives your site as having compared to your competitors, and advise on ways of bolstering this. From author bios to acquiring important backlinks, we’ll help your site be seen as the authority in your industry.
  • SEO experts who are happy to liaise with your developers. Sometimes communication is everything – we’ll speak to your developers and help them understand what they need to do (and make your life easier). All you need to do is set up the call, and we’ll take it from there.
  • And last but not least… education! Unlike other Technical SEO agencies, we don’t just tell you what to do or what we’re doing – we tell you why. Education is at the core of our values, and we don’t believe in hoarding knowledge.

Why choose a Technical SEO company?

Safeguard your website against future Google algorithm updates. Even if your site is ranking well organically now, these updates are released roughly every few months and could pose a potential threat to your rankings (and revenue) with every rollout. Our technical SEO consultants will be on-hand to ensure we’re prepared to mitigate the risks – and keep your revenue stream coming in! 

What can go wrong without technical support?

Without any technical input, you’re at serious risk of harming your website’s rankings. Let’s use a common example. You may have a member of your team making a change that you believe is harmless, such as uploading a new blog post about your most popular service. Or you don’t have any technical budget as your website is currently ranking well. But this could put you in danger of the following:

  • Keyword cannibalization. You may be targeting the same keyword with multiple pages without realising it. This can dilute your rankings for this term across the board. You’re best to just focus on one primary keyword per page (as well as any secondary and tertiary keywords).
  • Keyword stuffing. Your page titles, meta descriptions, headers and body copy all need to naturally reference your chosen keywords. If you simply stuff them in at every given opportunity and hope for the best, your content will be seen as spammy, and NOT helpful for the user.
  • Content that doesn’t have a purpose. Every page on your website should have a purpose. This means all pages should have a CTA (Call To Action) to prevent visitors from dropping off your website. 
  • Unoptimised internal linking. It’s really important to use anchor text when using internal links. This both strengthens your keyword targeting and makes for a more natural flow for your visitors when navigating your content.
  • Duplicate content. Did you know that plagiarism can harm your ranking signals? Even if it’s internal duplication? As part of our service, you’ll get a team of expert copywriters to ensure your content is always unique. 
  • Your visitors could suffer a bad user experience. UX (User Experience) can have a negative impact on your rankings. 
  • Failing core web vitals. What Google expects now has the potential to change. Ensure your website is maintained and keeps up with the rapidly changing industry trends. 
  • Investing in content that can’t be found. All of the above has the potential to prevent your content from ranking – it’s important to not let this happen!

Still unsure if you need technical SEO?

All websites on the web need some form of Technical SEO management. Is your main competitor ranking number 1 on Google for a keyword you’re targeting? They’ve got there with the help of Technical SEO. But we understand this can be daunting. 

If you’d rather check how your website stands against competitors first, you’ll benefit from our Technical SEO Audit. You’ll get invaluable insights into over 200+ ranking factors. Plus, once the report has been delivered, you’re free to take it away and action it yourself – there’s no obligation.
