One of our key focuses is building your reputation online. It’s all about demonstrating Expertise, Authority and Trust (E-A-T). Google uses E-A-T to assess website content quality and relevancy, especially in trusted sectors like financial services. It’s something we work hard to establish, because the more you can demonstrate E-A-T, the more Google will rate your site. Which means enhanced online visibility, and more client enquiries.

Frequently Asked Questions
We split SEO into two main areas. Firstly, on-page SEO, which deals with relevancy. Our work here involves focusing on the things that matter to Google, like page loading speed, the format of your website code and the quality of your content. The other area is off-page SEO, which is all about trust and site authority. This is hugely important for financial services websites, and something in which we have developed specialist expertise over the past 15 years.
When you pay to put ads online, every time someone clicks on the ad and lands on your website, you have to pay (‘pay per click’). With organic SEO however, there is no charge whenever someone clicks on a link they find in the search results. The fact is, people are more inclined to click on and trust organic listings than they are adverts, which is why investing in a long term SEO strategy for your financial services firm is more likely to deliver a better return on investment.
You’ll need to be prepared to look at your financial services SEO as a medium to long term strategy, but many of our clients in this sector begin to see initial results in the first few months.
Competition for clients in the financial services sector is growing rapidly, as firms are increasingly targeting directly rather than acquiring through professional referrals. Plus consumers are turning to the internet more and more to check online reviews and expertise. A visible online presence is crucial if you are going to stand out in a growing crowd of competitors.
Prices for our financial services SEO campaigns range from £500 to £4K per month. As a guide, a 20-hour campaign based on 50 keywords with weekly blogs, technical SEO, manual outreach and management would usually require an investment of around £2,000 plus VAT per month. You are welcome to contact us for a customised quotation.
Our research will reveal which keywords are best to drive qualified traffic to your financial services website. We’ll look into what people search for within your specific sector and local area, and check search volumes, keyword difficulty in terms of competition, and the potential click through rate you might achieve. It’s all fairly scientific, but once this step is completed, we’ll be able to present you with a well-researched set of keywords that are focused on meeting your business goals.
We offer a range of financial services SEO packages which will be customised to suit your specific business goals and priorities, which we will take time to analyse ahead of getting started. What’s included in your package will vary depending on the financial services SEO package you choose, but all include at least 25 tracked keywords, one or more focus areas, 16+ campaign hours, upwards of two blogs or landing pages, your own dedicated customer success manager, and a KPI dashboard where you can view all your current SEO campaign results.
