Frequently Asked Questions

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is the process of improving the ranking of your business in Google’s organic results. The end goal of SEO is to deliver more visitors to your website with the goal of converting these visitors into leads or customers.

At Bonfire, we take a data-driven approach to SEO. We offer full transparency with our campaigns which we believe sets the benchmark for Sydney SEO agencies and Australia wide.

Unfortunately, there are several SEO companies out there who don’t play fair, often using ‘black hat’ techniques in an attempt to manipulate search engines in the short term. Be wary of an SEO agency that promises fast results or a dubious ‘guarantee’ as they can often do more harm than good.

To avoid getting locked into a contract with one of ‘these’ SEO agencies, Google has provided an agenda to follow when interviewing and selecting an SEO provider. These are the steps Google recommends brands take when choosing an SEO company:

  1. Conduct a two-way interview – ask relevant questions to ensure they’re sincerely interested in you and the success of your business.
  2. Check their references – check their case studies, testimonials and references. If they’re unable to provide these, it may be a warning sign.
  3. Request an audit – a good agency does their homework. Ask them to complete an audit, identifying any potential website issues and how they suggest to improve them, as well as what impact these changes are estimated to have on your digital campaign.
  4. Decide if you want to hire– discuss with other decision makers within your business whether they think this agency is a good choice. Before deciding on an SEO agency, make sure all internal stakeholders are on board.

In addition to the hiring process recommendations, here are a few SEO tips as well as common misconceptions.

  1. “SEO is not black magic” –SEO isn’t magic and it won’t work overnight. If an agency is promising instant rankings, avoid them, as they’re likely to be practicing bad SEO – this could cause irreversible long term damage to your domain and could greatly affect your digital standing with Google.
  2. SEO suggestions should align with google best practices – ask the agency to corroborate their strategy recommendations with supporting documents from Google e.g. an article from their help centre, a Googler response in their forum or a video.
  3. Good SEO aims to improve the searchers’ entire experience – recommended changes should aim to not only create a search friendly site, but also a user-friendly site.
  4. Quality SEOs will be genuinely invested in your business –they will be interested in learning about your business from a holistic stand point and genuinely care about your business goals, customers and other existing marketing efforts.
  5. Good SEO takes time – allow 4 months to a year before you expect to start seeing real search results from strategy implementation. There are a lot of components in a good SEO strategy, and unfortunately no magic tricks to make them work faster.

An SEO’s potential is only as high as the quality of your business or website – investing in a user-friendly website will significantly help every SEO strategy implemented. You can’t build a home without a solid foundation

In Sydney, SEO costs are generally influenced by two factors; expertise of the agency or people completing the SEO work and the amount of time spent on your campaign.

While cost is obviously important, the end goal of SEO should be to generate a positive return for your business. The danger of focusing on price to make your decision, is that you often end up at the bottom end of the market, with someone who is inexperienced or outsources a lot of their work overseas.

We’ve seen countless examples of ‘cheap’ SEO campaigns and the long-term cost to business owners can be huge. Manual and algorithmic penalties can often take months of work to remove and the lost time and revenue during this period ends up being more than the cost of choosing an experienced agency in the first place.

At Bonfire, our focus for your SEO campaign is return on investment. Our SEO experts have over 20 years of experience and thousands of campaigns under their belt, generating a real-world impact on the bottom line of businesses across a wide range of industries. We encourage you to read reviews, do your research and make an informed decision before investing in any digital marketing services.

SEO is a mid-to-long term strategy designed to assist in generating higher Google search rankings. The key is consistency and quality, maintaining natural growth over a number of months to secure the long term success of your business.

A secondary consideration is also the industry you’re in and how competitive it is. Whilst in some unique cases immediate rankings are possible, most clients can expect positive movement in rankings for select keywords after the 4th month. The real results across all selected keywords in your campaign start taking shape after month 4 to 12.

Bonfire have been proven to consistently deliver, driving a positive ROI on search results over the mid-to-long term.
