The SEO agency in Cheshire

SEO agency Cheshire

Cheshire; where the echoes of marching Roman footsteps haunt Chester’s historic city walls, scientists scour the skies for alien activity at Jodrell Bank, sharks lie in wait at the Blue Planet Aquarium, and our (as good as) Cheshire SEO agency lurks on the outskirts.

Until 1974, when the three-day week plunged the UK into darkness and miners emerged from the bowels of the earth to strike, Dark Horse’s Altrincham base was part of Cheshire. It’s now Greater Manchester. But don’t tell those living towards Hale. Wherever it is, it’s on the tram map so we ain’t talking Belgravia despite what they think.

Cheshire. The best of the North West, the last bastion of civilisation and saviour to Range Rovers sales. We offer early salvation to the suffering, those needing to dominate their competition with SEO strategies that drive traffic and increase your bottom line.

Welcome to Dark Horse SEO Cheshire stopping at tweed central, Wilmslow junction and overpriced independent markets parkway.

SEO for Cheshire businesses

If Cheshire is the SEO centre of the world, then Altrincham is Silicon Valley. Cheshire used to be famous for cheese and toffs, now it’s renowned for search marketing and ROI – and we brought about that change, weaving it into the fabric of neighbouring Altrincham.

The Dark Horse team lives and breathes search engine optimisation, pouring blood, sweat and tears to raise the rankings of your website. Our Cheshire SEO services aren’t just for those with the deepest pockets on Whitebarn Road. From shadowy Nantwich to the chavtown capital Macclesfield, our search engine marketing goal remains steadfast: make you more money.

Get ahead of the competition and be on page one – the only place to be seen.

Death to mediocre Cheshire SEO

Cheshire, where the smiles are as genuine as a politician’s apology. We couldn’t think of a better place for our lovely Cheshire SEO agency, we are paid to make people look down on others and we relish putting our clients at the top of page 1. Welcome to the land of postcode and ranking snobbery. Dark Horse clients include all The Jones’s.

Are your rankings disappearing like the proverbial Cheshire Cat? Has your traffic disappeared and retreated like the locals into gated communities? Is your smile Botox lifted from Knutsford or are you genuinely happy with online results?

If you’re interested in making lots more money from your website through SEO and are based in Cheshire, then we are happy to double the price and call it ‘Artisanal’. Should do the trick. Remember, we are search engine experts after all.

you should
do SEO, Cheshire?

Because companies and your competition already are. They are getting 30% of all available clicks at the top of page 1 for YOUR main keyword. They are probably your biggest competition, and are stealing your potential customers right from under your nose. SEO for ecommerce or lead gen companies that rely on online enquiries and sales is not an optional add-on. It’s like logistics, stock and tax returns.

We’re not here to twist your arm. You found us, remember. We don’t really care if you do SEO or not. What we care about is that IF you do, then Mary, Mother of God, do it right. We can help with that.

If you don’t do it then good luck with breakfast networking with your local printer, utility warehouse rep, IFA, conveyancer, wedding photographer and accountant. That should complete the journey to 8 figures nicely. People buy from people right? Buy only local right? Keep telling yourself that. People buy from the companies they find at the top of Google that fulfil their needs at the budget they want. Never purchased from Amazon or Tesco? What were the names of the people?

Now, once your logical side of the brain kicks in and eliminates the whimsical fancy that you want to believe… We would suggest selecting a quality Cheshire SEO agency and cancel your comp slips order from Cheshire MinuteManPress.

The SEO that Cheshire deserves

Choose Dark Horse because of our combined 100 years experience. Choose Dark Horse because of the size and specialist nature of our search marketing team. Choose Dark Horse because we brought you to this page with a simple search for “SEO Cheshire”, and you related to the content enough to engage with it and set up a meeting. That’s essentially what we do in a nutshell. 

Once you strip all the SEO jargon back, we bring the horse to water and get it absolutely hammered. We make you money. We bring you more sales. More profitable sales. Increase your average order value and baskets. Dark Horse impacts your bottom lines more than a jab you’d get on the high street in the Alderley Edge. Our impact lasts longer. We aren’t interested in getting Christmas Cards from you, we just want to make you as much money as possible. And make your competition cry so hard their flowing tears could be mistaken for the River Mersey.

Most Cheshire SEO agencies peddle mediocrity like a dealer in Winsford. We don’t do drugs but we do aim to get you as high as possible – just on search engines which are just as trippy but make you less hungry afterwards.

Rhino Safety is a leading safety consultancy group but it wasn’t being seen and missing out on traffic. Hidden in the backstreets of the alley as the torrential rain poured, Dark Horse saw the signal. We were eager to help, we had been watching and waiting in the sidelines. 

From our work, Rhino Safety saw an increase of 156% in organic sessions and a 159% in new organic users. Our keyword research, the blueprint of the content strategy, delivered a growth of 97% in keywords from May 2020. The relevant links gained through Digital PR increased the domain rating (DR) from 22 to 26 in just over 6-months. The result? A happier, richer client.

New Care Homes is a business centred around expertly designed, high-specification care homes. New Care wanted to increase its search visibility in specific geographical locations. It came to us with the aim to increase conversions and search reach near to where its care homes were based. In terms of business-to-consumer lead gen, New Care, in the majority of cases, wasn't directly targeting its benefactors of the home, but often relatives of them. Dark Horse developed its strategy considering both the website to create a strong foundation and content to drive intent-based traffic. It was time to get started, it was time for Dark Horse to get forensic.

Why are you the best SEO agency in Cheshire?
Why are you the best SEO agency in Cheshire? - Expand

Two reasons.

  1. We are shit hot. We know lots of people who would testify.
  2. It’s Cheshire and not Paris, New York, or any other metropolitan area with about 500 SEO agencies. Maths is good for us.

1+2 = The Number 1 SEO agency in Cheshire. We will die on that hill.

We actually have a much better way of answering that question but you need to meet us to get that answer. If we wrote it here, it would be stolen by our competition in days. They LIVE on our site copying what we do. Hiya Fuckos!

Why should we use an SEO agency in Cheshire?
Why should we use an SEO agency in Cheshire? - Expand

Depends if you want to see them. F2F meetings work well. Work WITH your search marketing agency for the best results. We’re nice people. If you don’t want to see them, use one in London or say Paris. Pay their prices factoring in London weighting.

You don’t need to be in Cheshire or use a Cheshire SEO agency though. You know that and the reason why we are answering this is to get the keywords in.

Is Dark Horse better than our current SEO agency?
Is Dark Horse better than our current SEO agency? - Expand

Yes. Yes it is. We have a minimum average of 7 years experience in pioneering SEO roles. What other SEO agency in Cheshire can boast that? None, that’s who. (We checked).

Can we negotiate you down on price or not sign a contract?
