SEO for Accountants

Grow Your Accountancy Firm with Organic SEO

In the crowded financial services market, SEO is the key to online visibility for accountants. Where does your firm currently appear in search results for accountants in your area? How about searches for your services or specialisms? It’s a well-worn joke, but the best place to hide a dead body is on page two of Google.

Search engines use a myriad of algorithms to sort or ‘index’ websites hierarchically, and there are many techniques to help get ahead in the rankings. In a nutshell, it involves an overhaul of your entire website to make it search engine and user-friendly.

SEO can turn your online performance around and deliver you impressive results. By that, we mean more website traffic, more brand awareness and more business.

Improve visibility in online searches

The goal of SEO for accountants is simple – to reach more of your target audience in response to online searches for your services. The most valuable way to do this is by increasing organic (rather than paid-for) search results. 

Increase website visits and enquiries

Once your site has matured, it’s more likely to rank on page one of Google for your services in your local area. When looking for an accountant, users are much more likely to click on the top-ranking firms. More click-throughs mean more website traffic, which inevitably leads to more enquiries. 

Grow your brand and accounting reputation

Accountants come to us to improve their search engine rankings and get more website visitors – but stay with us because we deliver so much more. As a result of our SEO content strategies, we have helped many accountancy clients to create a distinguished brand identity to win customers’ hearts as well as minds (along with Google’s approval). 

Impressive ROI

The beauty of SEO for accountants is that it’s largely a numbers game. Your success can be easily measured using smart, live analytic tools. So when it comes to your return on investment, you can see it on the page. What’s more, our campaigns are geared towards growing organic search, the results of which have much more longevity, giving you a better return.

Our Specialist SEO Services For Accountants

In our experience, we’ve achieved the best results for local accounting firms with a strategic mix of on-page SEO, off-page SEO, local SEO and content strategy. This is not to say that any two accountancy SEO campaigns are the same. Starting with a detailed analysis of your business and website performance, we can devise a bespoke, fully-integrated, fixed-price SEO campaign aimed to achieve your business goals. 

Your bespoke campaign is likely to combine elements of all our key services:

SEO audits for Accountants

An audit of your accounting website is always the first stage in your SEO journey. Our audits involve an in-depth analysis of your website’s content, structure, and performance in search engine rankings (SERPs). From there, we can identify areas of improvement to inform your SEO campaign.

Optimised web design for Accountants

The advantage of designing your website from scratch is that it is built with SEO in mind, meaning it has a head start in the rankings from day one. We will work with you to fully understand your business and produce a site that reflects your brand and helps you to meet your goals.

On-page SEO for Accountants

The goal of on-page SEO is to enable your website to ‘talk’ to Google. We refer to the Big 3: technical SEO (e.g. metadata, URLs and schema markup), SEO content strategy (high-quality content on each and every page), and user experience (e.g. fast page loading, ease of navigation).

Local SEO for Accountants

If your accountancy firm serves a particular region, then local SEO is essential to be visible in ‘near me’ search results. Local SEO techniques include things like schema markup, local citations, keyword strategy and optimising your Google business profile. This provides search engines evidence of your geographical area, which they can match to relevant user searches.

Off-page SEO for Accountants

Off-page SEO is so important to accountancy businesses as it establishes your reputation outside of your website. Techniques like citations and backlinks prove to search engines that your site is reputable and, therefore, useful to users. This will result in your site being indexed and ranked higher.

SEO content strategy for Accountants

As a service-based business, it’s important that your accounting website is packed full of insights and information that are of genuine use to your audience. Google prizes high-quality content, as do we. Our content is always produced for users first, with keywords effortlessly weaved in to increase searchability.

National SEO for Accountants

If you have your sights set on taking your accountancy business national, then we can help. National SEO is naturally more competitive, especially in the financial market, but there are strategies we can employ to help you to increase your visibility, such as SEO content strategy and smart keyword research.
