"Probably the best SEO Consultant currently in the UK, not only did he over deliver, his ideas and concepts were very different to other SEOs we spoke with." D Harrington CPUK 2013

"One of the UK's top Google Consultants...." DDL (2013)


Advanced SEO

All of the SEO techniques that will be employed by Benedict during the project have been researched, tried and tested, and comply with Google Webmaster Guidelines.

All changes recommended to a site will have no negative impact on the user experience; however, we are aware that not all SEO ideas are attractive commercially. We see it as our role to offer ideas to a client to select from and then to implement that concept.


What are people searching for today?

Google gives us the information on the "hot searches of the day" with this neat tool.


Proven track record

As we do not control Google, it is not possible to predict the precise effects of SEO, however similar campaigns for other UK Business websites have produced dramatic results, including numerous cases where target keywords have reached a high position in Google from positions outside the top 100 within weeks not months..

Benedict are uniquely placed to advise businesses on SEO, due to 11 years SEO experience and the wealth of information from our own 3500 websites.

Is Benedict different from other SEO companies?

Many claim to be different but are they? We conducted a mystery shopper experiment and failed to find a single SEO company out of 64 that thought outside of the box. 18 did not respond at all!

SEO Search and Research Programme
This is what sets Benedict apart from the crowd. Nothing that we advocate in terms of SEO strategic tools have not tried and tested ourselves, with the research being made available to all our clients.How are we different

Through building a network of literally thousands of websites we can monitor and test the effects of adding links, removing links, testing content, testing anchor text changes In short we can prove that how we operate is based on a scientific approach that is backed up on data.



because lots of people believe a certain SEO rule does not make it true

An example is blog posting. It is a timely and costly process that can be equated with throwing mud against a wall and hoping that some sticks. Benedict's solution was to create a 100 article submission and 100 blogs websites and get other web users to build our sites by submitting their articles / posts, and then use this content to seed links and drive traffic.

We created links for some of the sites to give a disparity of Google page ranks, used new domains and old domains with a history to further dilute our model. SRP 03/2009 - 03/2013

Unfortunately, we do not publish the results of any of our findings as they are confidential but you can rest assured that other than a few choice sites article submission as a viable SEO strategic tool is flawed.

Creative SEO solutions that work

Perhaps one the most startling differences between Benedict and self styled 'Google Gurus' is the level of creativity involved. Although we can only comment on our client's old SEO company work, what often comes apparent is the number of agencies who work on a very micro level without appreciating the big picture. For example take keywords.

There is a huge SEO concentration on keywords, making the process of selecting the right keyword seem to be a skill only a trained SEO person can achieve. Yet every businessman who answers the telephone to prospective clients will be well aware of how those potential buyers describe a company's service or product.

Many SEO agencies, limit their client to a few keywords dictated by budget. Regardless of budget at Benedict we look at the larger long term picture, we aim high. We ask our clients what does success look like?

Quantify this in terms of enquiries, orders, or better still revenue generated from the website. We then looked to the Internet, can Google supply the amount of traffic required for a certain conversion rate to meet that revenue target? We begin to formulate a plan based on targets, and available resources (budgets). We think the other thing that sets Benedict apart, is our respect to the client. At Benedict we tell our clients "do not believe a single SEO thing we say, until you have seen it proved."

"... we are expert at search engine optimisation and off page link building, we will never know their business as well as they do."

We also tell our clients that there is no such thing as a stupid question or a bad idea. One thing we tell our clients is "although we are expert at on page optimisation and off page link building, we will never know their business as well as they do. because lots of people believe a certain SEO rule does not make it true

They are the experts, and fundamentally on the day, with a little SEO translation from Benedict, will provide the additional enthusiasm that makes a difference between # 5 and #1 in Google.

Time takes time, to see organic search results takes three months.

This is another fallacy, Benedict can show results in under 21 days. To learn the way we do this, you have to give us a call on 020 8879 3340 or send an email.

Reviewed by Client "Benedict" they took our site onto the first page for "chocolate" and at one point we were beating Thortons. Good company that offered a more natural way to promote our website 5.0/5.0. More Reviews of Benedict


Reviewed by Client After a bit of slow start we began working well together, we had some problem extracting ourselves from the last company. We found Benedict to be a bit of a guru at web optimisation and now understand that we have to earn our place at No1 in Google. For me (as a technophobe) this was invaluable as it provided me with the latest SEO practices that will help me and my marketing girl knowledge to increase the pages ranking of our site. 4.5/5.0 More Reviews
