Authority audit, with monthly activity designed to enhance the authority of your content both on-site and across the internet.
And (usually) phased as follows:
Thorough research processes underpin the fundamentals of our strategic focus; by highlighting areas where keyword opportunity exists, we are able to tailor campaign optimization (best blend of technical, content and authority optimization) to meet agreed goals.
Establish Client & Performance KPI Expectations
The audit of historic SEO activity delivers a clear initial picture on current visibility, traffic, engagement and conversions. As with PPC, we believe that a defined understanding on what’s expected is key, so we use this benchmark data as the basis for our planning and on-going delivery. During our progress with you through the SEO planning stages, increasingly specific goals are developed to guide the success of the campaign.
Establish Tracking & Analytics Requirements & Solutions
As SEO evolves in complexity and scope, our analytics team works with you to confirm core metrics (e.g. conversions, revenue & ROI going forward), and to enrich your data set with integrated social metrics e.g. social visibility, SEO and social peer comparisons. This broader data set will guide our mutual understanding of your customers’ online journeys as they engage and interact with your brand.
Conduct keyword Research & Opportunity Analysis
Keyword research starts with a seed list - a brainstorm of words and phrases that might be important. The better the keyword seed list is, the greater the opportunity to generate a comprehensive keyword portfolio.
There are two main types of keywords we review for search- brand terms and generic terms - usually sub-divided as follows:
In addition to these main types, and subject to the specifics of your business, we may also add keywords relating to events ( such as: father’s day, mother’s day, Christmas and so on), and competitor terms where relevant. During the research process, we will consider:
The objective of this report is to agree a parent list of keywords which offer potential for gains in visibility, traffic, engagement and acquisitions. The parent list is triaged into the following categories:
Establish Domain Structure - Geographical and Language Variables
With many clients now operating internationally, it’s prudent to plan at the outset for the best possible domain structure, allowing for scale and diversity as your web presence develops. From extensive experience, we advise you on optimum deployment of country specific TLDs, use of single domains, and the pros / cons of sub-domains, folders and related geo-targeting best practice.
Produce Seasonality Map
Although SEO is less agile than PPC, we can still use notable peaks and troughs to anticipate broad seasonal trends and recurring external factors such as industry or social events. With this information, we can plan our optimization to intelligently target specific product / service categories in advance of periods which exhibit best opportunity.
The initial phase of Jellyfish SEO campaigns encompasses key audit deliverables, ensuring that technical, content and authority optimization tactics are planned and executed to fulfil agreed strategic objectives.

The performance/standing of your website will be compared with the performance/standing of up to three identified competitors. Using best of breed technology as a basis, we use comparative data on back-links, domain authority, page authority and social signals to build an accurate picture of how authority has been historically created, and how your brand can benefit in the future.
Areas of potential, immediate and long-term gain are identified, and prioritized clearly in the summary. Once completed and in conjunction with SEO keyword research, the audit will clarify:
