FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Here are just a few Frequently Asked Questions to help you discover more about seoWorks, our methodologies and business processes …
Why do you include non-SEO company websites in your lists
We include all organizations that actually rank for the SEO keywords we analyse. We choose not to exclude any non-SEO companies as their inclusion demonstrates a completely transparent view of all sites that rank, and we think this also provides some insights into what an SEO company has to compete against in order to appear on our Best SEO Company lists.
In addition, there are potentially a few grey areas or interpretations of what might and might not be an SEO services provider, so to ensure fairness and complete transparency we simply let the untouched algorithms run unhindered to ensure that there is no selection bias.
Can you help us with our SEO?
Yes. We provide SEO services to external clients, and we are quite active on our own behalf for this site and a range of other in-house websites which allows us to remain up to speed with best practice SEO techniques and methodologies.

What Is SEO?
SEO is an acronym for “search engine optimisation” which is the enhancement of your web pages and their online profile so as to improve your site’s ranking in the Search Engine results pages (SERPS) for nominated clusters of keyword phrases. As Google states on their website “Deciding to hire an SEO is a big decision that can potentially improve your site and save time…”.
How DO Search Engines Actually Work?
Though the Search Engines are continuously refining how they rank web pages, there remain four key elements that are the foundation for successful Page 1 results::
- choosing the best keywords
- having the right website infrastructure and architecture
- creating and presenting rich, original and engaging content
- developing a profile of high quality, on-theme incoming links and citations

Who Will I Be Working With?
At the commencement of your assignment you will be introduced your SEO Team and you will deal directly with an SEo Analyst; we don’t have intermediaries as, in our experience, the best results are achieved where our SEO team members are directly liaising with our clients.
Can I Talk To Some Of Your Clients?
Of course. We are always happy to introduce you to our clients and we will provide you with their contact details. As a courtesy, we always ask their permission first (as we would if you were a client) so it usually takes a day for us to receive their OK.
Do You Follow The Search Engine Webmaster Guidelines?
Because we clearly understand the importance of your web presence, we are highly conservative in our approach to Search Engine Optimisation. All our SEO techniques and methodologies are fully researched and verified on our own test web sites first before being introduced to our client sites. As a further commitment to our clients and our respect for their online businesses we maintain a Professional Indemnity Insurance Policy – we have never had a claim.
How Long Has SEO Works Been In Business?
We commenced operations in April 2004 with one team member and have grown gradually to now have over fourty in the team, all full time.
Do You Guarantee SEO Results?
We do guarantee to execute the very best SEO techniques and methodologies however, as Google itself says, “Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a “special relationship” with Google, or advertise a “priority submit” to Google.” As with any marketing investment, results are not guaranteed. If you placed an advert in a newspaper and didn’t receive any phone calls, would you be able to get a refund?
In the end, our track record and results must speak for themselves and we are happy to share these with you as well as provide you with direct contact with some of our clients so that you can evaluate for yourself our service levels and the outcomes achieved for our clients.
