Main Lawyers, Gold Coast

I own and operate a small law firm in Coolangatta. I have limited knowledge of the internet, SEO and how Google operates. I engaged Peter, Renee and Richard at Digital Surfer to help optimise my website’s performance and the results have been excellent. Before engaging Digital Surfer I was ranking very poorly for most keywords. I wasn’t receiving a lot of work through my website.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEO?

SEO is the magic that makes your website become Google’s new best friend. It is the only activity that helps your site be found at the top of search results – exactly where you need to be to bring in more qualified leads. How does SEO achieve this? Great question, thanks for asking it! It all comes down to optimising your website. Think of it like getting your site ready to meet Google. The more the website is optimised, the more features it has that Google likes. And the higher your chances of Google choosing to display your site above everyone else’s. With one of our SEO experts by your side, we can help your site be found at the top of the ranks.

Why do I need SEO?

Mobile technology has taken over the marketing landscape and every day we’re seeing more people choose online methods first. Think about the behaviours of people around you. If they want to find answers to a question, how many of them go to the library? Likewise, if they want to find a product or service, how many still turn to the Yellow Pages directory? I’m sure we don’t need to spell it out for you, you can see it with your own eyes the way people are now interacting with search engines to bring the answers they seek.
That’s why if someone is actively looking for a product or service you offer, you need to show up and let them know your business exists. If Google processes over 40,000 searches per second, well, guess where you need to be? The idea is simple. Be there when your customers search for your product or service. Being ranked at the top of relevant searches is very important for this marketing strategy to work. And that’s where our search engine optimisation (SEO) services come in.

Do Google & your website get on like a house on fire?

Just as humans need an introduction to one another, so do websites and search engines.

Platforms like Google are one of the key connection points between you and your target audience. With over 5 billion searches happening every day, your website needs to be at the top of these results.

You simply can’t afford not to be found online these days.

With Digital Surfer, it’s about more than just rankings

While rankings are important, our approach to SEO is about more than just that. Many agencies in our niche only focus on rankings. They miss the bigger picture.

At the end of the day, SEO is a marketing activity you engage in to help your business grow.

That’s why all SEO consultants at Digital Surfer take a growth approach to SEO. We collaborate with you and maintain active communications to help your business grow in the direction you want it to grow in.We care about seeing your business succeed. That’s why we align our campaigns with your business strategy rather than only focusing on rankings.
