Look, you searched for “SEO Altrincham” so we know your website is struggling. Crap rankings, no leads and no damn traffic. Something’s up, or you wouldn’t be here. You’re probably thinking, “do I need an SEO agency?” That’s your call. What we can tell you is you’re never going to reach all your potential customers with a shoddy SEO agency that doesn’t care about the one thing that actually matters: making you money.


We do what most Altrincham SEO agencies don’t. We listen to you. No shoving stencils of SEO strategies down your throat like force fed foie gras. We’ll never tell you to build a new website or create new category pages if you don’t actually need to. But we will dig deep into the depths of your website to tell you exactly where you’re going wrong. Then we’ll fix it. See, SEO can be simple.

The Altrincham SEO antihero

Say it with us, “SEO results take time to show”. We’ve all heard the spiel. Some overused speech by white collar wankers that probably call themselves SEO ninjas and send tweets to John Mueller 50 times a day. Poor bloke. Look, your website is never going to start ranking on page 1 overnight. But if your SEO agency is taking longer to get you results than it’s taking the council to build that Altair development near the ice rink (will it EVER be finished?!), you best believe you’re being conned by the usual suspects. Keyser Sozer approved.

The digital marketing industry is plagued with SEO charlatans. An incessant cesspit of self-proclaimed SEO specialists luring you in with pretty PDFs, promises and other words beginning with ‘p’. Peanuts? Before you know it you’re 6 months deep, pockets empty, high and dry. Blaggards. Don’t drink the koolaid.

We’re only interested in the truth. We’ll tell you what is not working for your website, and exactly how we’re going to fix it. Down with the vanity reports that are designed to pull the wool over your eyes. No smoke and mirrors. Just SEO.

The results that matter

We love winning. Winning is money. And there’s nothing better than the jingle-jangle of coins in our clients’ wallet to haunt their competitors at night. Torment them. Give ‘em nightmares.


None of that vanity stuff to make it look like you’re in the lead, when in fact you’re 2-0 down in the second half and not even Fergie time can save you now. If it impacts your bottom line, we’re all over it. Conversions, leads, gold coins – that’s what matters.

An SEO Humblebrag

Luxury e-commerce brand, Luxe Collective, was smashing it on socials. But their website wasn’t bringing in the bucks. From the shadowy alleys of Altrincham, they sent a signal for salvation. We eagerly answered the call to arms. In just 6 months, our forensic SEO strategy combining Technical SEO fixes and engaging on-page SEO grew non-brand sessions by 247% and increased organic revenue by 46%. Results were so significant, the competition didn’t even have time to react.

Rhino Safety is a leading safety consultancy group. Rhino came to Dark Horse with a challenge of increasing current search visibility and conversions. Dark Horse was eager to deliver. Firstly, it conducted an audit to see where the issues lay and then developed strategy. This helped to communicate to Rhino Safety what the plan of action was and develop strong lines of communication. Challenge accepted.
