Professional SEO Agency

Local, National, And International SEO

Our SEO campaigns can be suited to businesses seeking more visibility locally, nationally, or internationally. We have worked with businesses of all sizes seeking exposure to unique customer bases. We will provide a tailored approach that prioritises your goals and your clientele.

Local SEO Agency

If you run a local business you will want to catch the attention of those in and around your area, whether that’s a countryside town in Wales or the city of Singapore. We can help you do this with a local SEO campaign.

We have worked with and ranked hundreds of local businesses on Google’s first page for high-value keywords, in a wide variety of industries, located in some of the world’s largest and most competitive cities.

Think crème de la crème positioning in Google’s local pack results for terms such as hotels in London, serviced apartments Dubai, brand agencies in London, SEO company in Glasgow, lawyers in Washington, New York, Edinburgh, Dingwall, (Erm that’s correct,,, Dingwall!) or business water suppliers England, London, Timbuktu etc.

See it doesn’t matter if you are a global hotel chain, global law firm or local seo agency located in Glasgow. We know what it takes to get bricks and mortar businesses ranking in Google’s local pack results, wherever you are in the world, from right here in our agency headquarters in Glasgow, Scotland.

National SEO Agency

Businesses looking to rank nationally will be able to improve their online visibility with our comprehensive approach to national SEO.

We will be able to analyse competitors, how they rank and how to outrank them. We have run many highly successful national campaigns for national gems and household brands that operate in various industries such as trade, construction, utilities, travel, fashion and growing and emerging markets such as veganism, crypto, renewable energy and the electric vehicle industry. All clients who have seen a significant return on investment with a huge increase in organic visibility, leads, sales and revenue.

Again, think crème de la crème rankings in the most sought-after real estate plots in Google’s organic search landscape.

Think prime keywords like radiators, timber merchants near me, business water, vegan food, trade paint. Think ‘hotels in [every major city in the UK, Europe and beyond]’.

At a national level, we don’t just settle for owning Park Lane & Marlow Bone Street on the Monopoly board, we also want Bond St, Oxford St & Regent St. Hell, we will take Old Kent Road & Whitechapel Road if that’s all that’s left to own!!! And after that, we will move onto somebody else’s board and start to chip away at that search engine real estate. That’s the mindset we have here at Boyd Digital! There are no limits and no end to growth!

International SEO Agency

We run multi-lingual international SEO campaigns for businesses seeking to branch out across the world. We have successfully run huge international SEO campaigns for the likes of Groupon, Smartbox, Clarivate, Michelin, Frasers Hospitality just to name a few.

Each international campaign is unique in its own rite. Some campaigns involve gaining rankings in Google for the same keyword, in English, but in multiple English-speaking countries. Some projects involve achieving keyword rankings for high-value keywords in many countries in different languages.

Some international SEO projects involve unravelling complex issues that have arisen over time on large multilingual websites due to unsuspecting neglect. That’s why a large portion of our international SEO clients come to us subsequently to an issue being detected and not before. The challenges we have faced and the problems we have solved are what make Boyd Digital one of the best International SEO Agencies out there.

We can translate from and to most languages. We can write SEO-optimised content from scratch in any language using native speakers and writers. All this is achieved using our trusted pool of international content writers that are located the world over.

We have built long-term working relationships with the international SEO content writers and translators we work with. Most relationships have naturally developed over the years when one-time foreign students studying in Glasgow were looking for multilingual work to help with their finances during their study years.

Many of these international relationships continue today with an alumni-type vibe.

These relationships allow us to scale up fast, as and when large complex international SEO campaigns arise.

Out-with the foreign language aspect of international SEO and foreign language link acquisition campaigns, our team are experts in the international technical SEO front. We have a vast amount of experience in optimising complex multi-language websites using best practices with lang tagging, hreflang tagging, canonical tagging, geo-tagging, international tagging, XML site-maping Google search console tagging etc. We know how to rank websites in most languages and in most countries all over the world!

There is not an international SEO job too complex or too big for us here at Boyd Digital!
