Frequently Asked Questions

Who works at Scott Shorter?

On-page and Off-page SEO

Strong SEO is a team effort, at Scott Shorter PTY LTD we have more people power than an SEO freelancer and fewer distractions than a full-service digital agency. We have our SEO director, SEO account managers, an SEO copywriter, link builders, a programmer, website speed optimisation specialist and a graphic artist. We also have Google and Bing Ads specialists and admin staff. We’re always looking for the next asset to our team that will give us the edge. We move fast and stay dynamic. That’s how we’ve become one of Melbourne’s best SEO agencies.

What is SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)?

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) involves studying the signals that determine search engine rankings, like those from Google and Bing, and making adjustments to your website to match these signals. The closer your website aligns with these signals, the better your ranking will be. Generally speaking, SEO involves building a bigger website with content that is more closely aligned with searches and strengthening the website’s authority through a backlinking program.

How does SEO work in 2023?

In the year 2023, Google’s primary factors for ranking involve a page’s relevance to a search, the authority it gains through backlinks, and an enhanced focus on user experience, valuable content, and the extent to which your website fulfils the criteria of Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (E-A-T).

How long does SEO last?

SEO lasts a long time which makes it a great investment. SEO builds a better, bigger website that ranks for more search terms. Stopping SEO will not make the website smaller and thus it won’t directly lessen the effectiveness of SEO. SEO also improves the authority of your website. Websites with higher authority outrank their competitors. Stopping SEO will not reduce the authority of the website or make the website smaller. The main reason websites lose ground is because their competitors may continue to improve their SEO. This happens slowly.

How long does SEO take?

You’ll start noticing improvement in 15 to 30 days, and these improvements typically improve further each month. Strong results typically take 6 to 12 months. The exact time depends on how much SEO your competitors are doing and how your SEO is currently performing.

Is SEO still worth it in 2023?

SEO is still a great investment in 2023. SEO can provide a better ROI than ads, and SEO is also longer-lasting than other forms of advertising. SEO has a fixed monthly cost while the results improve. As the price of paid ads becomes increasingly more expensive, SEO is a strategy that has become increasingly valuable.

Well done is all I can say.We all know SEO is a minefield of changing goal posts and ongoing online requirements.Scott had walked me through and guided our business through a new site and SEO, as a professional and as a friend.His hard work and transparency has gone far beyond to get us to where we need to be… truly thankful.

Phil Thomas-Hall
An Actual Person.I called Scott after having some horror experiences with other Google support services for my small business in Melbourne.Scott was great, he took the time to explain what I needed to do to rectify my Google issue in a way I could understand. So refreshing and reassuring to have access to an actual person with the technical solutions at hand.I'd highly recommend Scott especially if you've been burnt by a big corporate SEO before.
Shane Robertson
Have used a few marketing and SEO companies over the last 30 years in business. Now using Scott Shorter and very pleased with what we have acheived after making the switch.
Jim Kay
I contacted Scott Shorter to get a quote and learn what SEO can do.We've already been given value with Scott's insights and advice into some structural problems with our website. The corrective wheels are in motion and we haven't even begun to do business as such(yet)! Nice too, having the personal touch with someone who can walk the talk! Thanks Scott!
Daryl Louey
I reached out to get support with SEO and Scott gave me 30 minutes of his time and heaps of advise without trying to sell me at all (he was very honest). Really appreciated the help and will put the suggestions in action.
Brendo McCormack
Very honest and straightforward, Scott helped us with our google ads and SEO
Speedy Cleaning
One of the best seo decisions we made was coming across Scott Shorter SEO on Google and giving his company a ring. For his SEO company to rank so well across multiple states in the SEO industry is a testament to his proficient skill, which is backed up by his 20 years of SEO experience.Since the implementation of his personalised seo action plan for our business we've received incredible results reflected by an increase in sales. We couldn't be happier withthe results.I have worked with other seo companies in the past and I have always felt that I have been investing alot of my money but getting very little value back. My experience with Scott shorter has been the exact opposite.If your looking for a white hat seo company that really wants the best for their clients and is willing to put in the yards to help increase your web presence and ultimately your sales, than look no further.Thanks againRavi SimonsYabadoo Kids Entertainment......................................

I spoke to Scott about assisting me with Google AdWords and SEO. He spent over an hour of his time giving me invaluable advice and tips and tricks, which I could easily implement myself.
