Website Architecture

Can Google and other search engines understand your websites message? Can they pick up on your audiences intent and then align it to your websites offering? If they can’s then your local SEO campaign will struggle to ever find the value that search engine optimization provides. The architectural pillar of Local SEO is the implementation of techniques that makes sure Google can navigate your website and find the value it should.

We are a family lawyer based in Worplesdon, just down the road from Surrey. Sean and his team have done wonders for our natural ranking in just under 6 months. We were only ranking in our very local community before SearchButlers took over, now we are prominent across Guildford and beyond. Couldn't be happier!

Choose Us As Your SEO Company


Our Campaigns are always crafted to fit the needs of you and your business. Considerations include your industry, location and competition, along with your desire for growth, budget, risk tolerance and desire to participate.


We take performance and tracking very seriously. You will never be left wondering "what are they doing?" or "is it working?". The only thing better than our abilities is our communication. Measurable and accountable campaigns.


Having crafted SEO campaigns for over 2000 businesses on 3 continents, we understand SEO and we understand SME's. We leverage that experience to drive your campaign to success. We have a 94% retention rate for a reason.


That’s a hard question to answer in a few sentences, but in a nutshell every time someone searches online, search engines have a responsibility to scan through the trillions of websites that exist and to present them back to you in order of who they believe to be the most relevant and trustworthy result. There are about 300 factors that the algorithm considers about each website when it is deciding its results and each of them will have a different level of importance.  It is the job of an SEO team to understand what those factors are and to ensure that your website presents to Google the best version it can be so that you appear as close to the top as possible.  

If your customers use search engines to find businesses like you then there are only two options to be visible when they are. There is Pay Per Click which costs money every single time someone hits your ad and there is SEO where the clicks are free. SEO takes up 70% of the search engine results page and has 2 departments that will be relevant to your customers. SEO is a necessity for your business because your customers are 9 x more likely to hit an SEO result than a PPC result.  

In an ideal world you should choose PPC and SEO because the synergies that occur from running both campaigns concurrently far outweigh the benefits of either choice as a single strategy. If budgets don’t allow for that level of activity then the answer will depend on your circumstances. The best reason for PPC is it will offer opportunities immediately unlike SEO which takes time. The best reason for SEO is that it doesn’t cost as much and when it works it will deliver far more than PPC ever could on a value scale.

This is one of those “it depends” moments. Every SEO campaign has its own course to sail and the time to see results will vary based on hundreds of variables. The competition, the baseline value of your site, the keywords, even seasonality can play a role n delaying or expediting success. In our experience though, its apparent that results from SEO won’t be seen overnight, however you should see an uplift in rankings, traffic or revenue from your SEO strategy within three months-5 months.  The quicker suggestions from the strategy can be implemented, the quicker results will be seen.

Sorry, but as confident as we are in our abilities, we would be lying if we said we could guarantee the performance. We can only control the input factors into a campaign and the output is out of hands. If you are looking for an agency that will provide those reassurances, then you will only find agencies that will push the boundaries too far in order to ensure that they meet the performance criteria as soon as possible. I would steer very clear of those types of players.  

Typically we report on progress and performance in a documented fashion once a month. We also offer the chance to have a zoom review meeting monthly. Beyond that though we like the personal touch so there is never a concern with any ad hoc reach outs to our team whenever you need anything or have questions to ask. 

You certainly shouldn’t just blindly trust me on what I’m saying, you should seek reassurance from my testimonials and case studies that demonstrate our track record. Hopefully you can take some further peace of mind in knowing that we have a 99.1% retention ratio which is insanely high and we have a perfect 5.0 in our Google Reviews. We also dont ask you for contracts. So you can walk away at any time.
