What's Included

Roadmap to a successful SEO campaign

Website Quality Audit

This is a deep health and quality check of your website. We leave no stone unturned. Every indexed page will be audited for technical issues and content quality. This is about looking for roadblocks that will hinder the campaign if left unchecked.

What we look at:

  • Google Analytics data for each page
  • Google Search Console data for each page
  • A complete site crawl of all accessible pages
  • Technical site audit to look for technical errors
  • Current ranking keywords and which pages they correspond to
  • All active backlinks and where they are pointing
  • Manual audit of content on each page

We aggregate this data using our in-house tool to create an in-depth plan for each an every page on your site. This allows us to plan which pages to focus on, what gaps you have in your content, and what technical issues must be addressed.

Google Analytics Audit

We audit your Google Analytics & Google Tag Manager to ensure that you are properly tracking events and conversions. This ensures you have the data you need to monitor the process of your campaign.

Keyword Analysis & Content Strategy

This is not an exhaustive keyword analysis but rather an assessment of the current position. We use this to build a content strategy to target any keyword gaps. We use data from competitors, market trends and user intent to build a plan to give your site topical authority.

Link Assessment & Strategy

We look at your current link profile to see if any backlinks may cause issues. Once your existing backlink profile is checked, we will build a strategy for the link building campaign that will follow the foundation sprint.

Complete Roadmap

You will then be presented with a detailed roadmap, including each step you need to take to get your site to the position you want. The strategy does not tie you to us. Each action is laid out so you can have your in-house team handle it or assign it to us.

The Foundation is completed over a 2-3 week period.

Please note the cost of the Foundation Sprint does not include the resolution of the issues found.

The Sprint Methodology

The Sprint Methodology

Why Sprints? Most essential SEO work is a one-time effort. Sites rarely need endless retainers to achieve results.

Some sprints, such as the Content and Link Sprint, will be repeated more frequently whereas the Foundation Sprint will likely be run just once a year.

Our sprint model allows for total focus on each task. We don’t hold back to lock you into retainers. Every sprint receives our complete dedication to bring the highest quality work.

This focused approach enables us to deliver the best possible results in each area. Instead of stretching efforts over months, we condense our expertise into targeted sprints for efficient, measurable growth.

Stop Wasting Time and Money on Traditional SEO

Traditional SEO agencies often promote long-term monthly retainers where 50% of the work isn’t needed past month 2.

What traditional SEO agencies will take 12 months to do, we do in 12 weeks.

Always white Hat and ethical. Together, we can help build a better internet while boosting your business.

Sprint FAQs

SEO Sprints offer a faster and more effective approach to SEO. SEO involves actions that must be taken in a certain order. Firstly, you need to establish a solid foundation and create a plan. Next, you should create topically relevant and optimised content and tie everything together with authoritative links.

It doesn’t make sense to offer SEO plans that include all of these components for a monthly fee. You should focus solely on content and links by the second month. This is why Contactora focuses on Sprints, Links, and Content.

No, the foundation Sprint creates a strategy & list of immediate actions that you can take away and implement in-house, or we can do it for you for a separate cost.

Typically, yes. If compared side by side, you will save money by paying for exactly what you need and no more.
