What is an SEO Consultant?


So what is an SEO Consultant?

An SEO Consultant is someone who is, by SEO definition is experienced in optimising websites to perform in search engines for target keywords. SEO stands for search engine optimisation and the term “consultant” refers to an individual practitioner.  An SEO consultant will fundamentally have knowledge around technical SEO, SEO auditing, content auditing analysis, keyword research, competitor analysis and more – this knowledge is used to provide SEO as a service.


If you are wondering what are the benefits of hiring an SEO consultant there are many – reduced cost, more agile ways of working, improved efficiency & a closer working relationship.

Your companies online presence can dictate the difference between decline and growth. If you don’t rank in the top 3 organically for your target terms then you’ll be losing as much as 60% of marketplace traffic, outside of top 10 you’ll likely get less than 10% clickshare.

    Should I hire an SEO agency or SEO Company over a Freelance?

    SEO agencies can be a viable solution for businesses looking to drive natural growth if the agency is recognised, established and can demonstrate their expertise without significant costs. The main downside to using SEO companies is generally the cost and the transparency.

    Using an SEO Expert in London you’ll find that the service is far more personalised, transparent and cost effective. I execute strategies that ignite strong organic growth.

    For years I’ve been able to demonstrate capabilities with my own portfolio of websites. Search Engine Optimisation Services are the way forward for digital growth. As more businesses look to grow their business online the demand for SEO specialists has also grown significantly.

    Why hire an SEO Consultant?

    Hiring an SEO consultant allows you to seek professional SEO services, support & guidance without the same level of commitment that you would typically expect from an SEO agency. With an SEO Consultant you typically benefit from more dedicated time, more flexible working arrangements i.e. no fixed term contracts, lower costs & a more personalised service. 


    What exactly is SEO?

    Search Engine Optimisation (UK) or Search Engine Optimization (US) is the process of increasing the quantity of high quality website traffic by increasing the visibility of a website in search engines. SEO refers to the increase in keyword rankings to drive up “natural” visibility for unpaid results. SEO focuses only on traffic generated organically and excludes any paid or direct / referral traffic.

    What does an SEO Consultant Do?

    SEO consultants can either support your internal businesses organic needs or, SEO consultants can provide a range of services including tech (on page) audits, research, content auditing, site/landing page reviews, page indexing audits, content strategies and more. Typically an SEO consultant will help business improve their websites so that they load quickly, contain high quality information, meet end user needs & ultimately provide a better end user experience – this ultimately helps to drive up rankings, traffic and revenue.

    Do you offer SEO training?

    Yes we provide bespoke SEO training & SEO webinars that can help SEO’s from a beginner level to advance as well as SEO refinement training for intermediate and advanced SEOs who may want to revisit/beef up their original skill set. Our online SEO training can help other aspiring SEO’s to break free to become freelance SEO consultants as opposed to becoming SEO executives.

    How long until I see SEO Results?

    SEO results can take anywhere from weeks, to months and in some cases years depending on the nature of the business, target market competition levels, pre-existing content quality & domain authority and more. Most SEO campaigns would expect to show improved rank and traffic within the first 3-6 months, however an SEO audit is typically required to ascertain current index health & visibility.

    Can SEO really help a local business?

    SEO can help businesses of any size achieve higher search engine rankings. The tactics that help large brands pull more qualified prospects to their sites work for smaller organisations too. SEO helps smaller businesses, local businesses and start-ups build a stronger web presence and leapfrog competitors. SEO also helps build brand awareness. Potential customers are much more likely to trust a site listed on page 1 of a Google search result than one on page 20. Using my professional services you can expect to see an increase in search traffic either from nationwide searchers, local searchers or both depending on your business coverage.

    Will I need SEO Support Indefinitely? (is SEO a one time thing?)

    SEO is an ongoing process – there’s a lot of misconceptions around SEO being a process that you can just stop once you rank – the truth is, once you rank it’s important to maintain your domains content profile, authority & user engagement to sustain rank. SEO support is usually required on an ongoing basis – good SEO is likely to generate a growing ROI and therefore the recurring cost is no longer as important.

    What about International SEO Strategies?

    If your company / business is looking to penetrate an overseas organic search marketplace I can offer the expertise & consultancy to help make that happen from foreign keyword research to marketplace analysis. My extensive knowledge of international search engine optimisation means I can drive keyword ranking diversity & leverage natural visitor growth.

    Can an SEO Consultant Drive New Business?

    SEO consultants such as Daniel Foley Carter specialise in driving up organic rankings/traffic for keywords of commercial/transactional intent – this means performing keyword research to ascertain keywords with higher conversion potential and focusing on those as part of the SEO strategy.

    Who is the Best SEO Consultant in the UK?

    A subjective question – any SEO who ranks well for their own keywords as a proof of concept is technically a good SEO. The best SEOs get exceptional SEO results using sustainable SEO techniques combined with best practice.  The TOP SEOs will strive to drive organic visibility growth and enhanced brand awareness.

    How much does an SEO consultant cost?

    If you are wondering how much does an SEO consultant cost – SEOs can cost (As of 2024) anywhere from £20p/h for executives with 3 or less years of experience up to £80-£100 per hour for more experienced SEOs. High end SEO specialists can charge up to £200 per hour but will often be very efficient at getting things done quickly.

    Hiring an SEO consultant tends to be more cost effective than hiring an SEO agency.

    Previous SEO Consultants couldn’t get my site to rank – what do you do differently?

    We conduct a professional SEO audit prior to any client onboarding – this will be a professional tear down of your websites organic performance (google search console review), a full review of your websites technical profile, content profile, page indexing profile, rendering performance, backlink quality & more – from here we can provide an SEO roadmap / actionplan that will help to cement your expectations from day 1.

    Is SEO a Dying Industry?

    No, SEO continues to be an evolving industry that’s very much focused around producing high quality content in a website with good technical compliance / providing a good user experience whilst building brand, authority & ensuring end needs are met – SEO as an industry in 2024 continues to grow.

    Do you offer SEO Consulting UK / Nationwide?

    We offer SEO consulting for businesses across the UK and internationally across the US/Asia, Middle East & Europe. We offer local and internation SEO consultancy for small, medium and large businesses across niches including finance, healthcare, travel, insurance, wealth management, hospitality and more.

    How long will I need to work with an SEO Specialist?

    Most SEO strategies will require a commitment of at least 6-12 months to see tangible results.  How long you’ll need to work with an SEO consultant is dependent on the website, target keywords, how competitive the niche and available monthly budget.

    Why do I need to hire an SEO consultant?

    A business will usually enlist the help of a consultant as it can take over a decade of hands-on SEO testing to build sufficient experience to be able to rank in competitive verticals. If you are wondering why you should hire, A consultant with a lot of SEO experience will likely achieve much better results than someone with less experience or basic fundamental knowledge.
