My technical search engine optimisation services cover every aspect of a SEO campaign from the initial market research, through to the website optimisation and authority building.

I can also help with diagnosing rankings issues and removing penalties.

But this usually means that they don’t specialise in anything. I have gone down that path before and realised that I provide the best value when I stick to what I am good at – SEO.

I would love to help you if you’ll let me. Even if you would just like a second opinion on something, please feel free to contact me. I’m always happy to help out!

What is Search Engine Optimisation?

Search engine optimisation is the process of optimising a webpage for search engines such as Google. Optimisation involves many factors. The most important factors, however, are website performance, content quality and structure, and authority.

What does a Search Engine Optimisation Specialist do?

A search engine optimisation specialist’s role involves three fundamental areas – research, analysis and application. A SEO specialist will start by researching the target market to generate a list of target keyword groups, as well as research the sites which are current ranking for those keywords in order to establish a benchmark of optimisation criteria. Afterwards, the target website will be analysed and compared against the benchmark criteria so that a clear plan of action can be developed. Finally, in the application stage, the plan of action will be executed on the target site. A search engine optimisation specialist will also track (monitor) rankings and provide reporting.

Should I use SEO or Paid Ads?

  There are pros and cons for both paid ads and SEO. Ideally, if a business has cashflow issues, using paid ads will get the phone ringing from day one. SEO is great for businesses that have a limited capacity to scale as they can eventually acheive maximum capacity with zero ad cost. But if a business has no limit on capacity, and has a healthy cashflow already, doing both SEO and paid ads is the way to go.

How can I identify a good SEO agency?

  A SEO agency is only as good as the person doing the SEO work. For this reason, it’s better to go with a SEO agency run by an owner-operator who is a technical SEO specialist. Avoid agencies that try to sell a complete suite of digital services because it’s likely they don’t specialise in anything other than making sales.

How much do I need to pay for SEO?

  Comparing SEO pricing is difficult because there is any number of things that can be included in an SEO campaign. Typically costs could range from $750-$2000 a month per campaign. Campaigns typically last for about 6-9 months, but many businesses choose to continue. Some larger businesses are running more than one campaign each month.

How can I save money on SEO?

  It’s helpful to understand what work is once-off and what work is required on an on-going basis. Some SEO tasks can be completed in the first few weeks of an SEO project and do not require on-going work. You can often save money by paying up front for the once-off tasks to be completed, then negotiate a lower on-going montly payment for services which are required on a month-to-month basis.

What is a technical SEO specialist?

  A technical SEO specialist uses a technical approach to SEO as opposed to a holistic approach typically used by staff at digital agencies. A technical SEO specialist will do a comprehensive SEO analysis of hundreds of rankings factors using a variety of tools, then interpret that data to achieve rankings. The holistic approach, on the other hand, takes action based on a pre-defined task list generated from a basic understanding of core SEO principles.

How is SEO pricing calculated?

  Each SEO agency makes their own pricing models. Some agencies base their pricing off the value of the outcomes expected. Others base their pricing on the actual work that is involved. There are strong arguments for both methods of pricing. Since the SEO industry is largely unregulated, it’s important that business owners feel they can trust that the person doing the work for them is honest and fair.

Is SEO guaranteed to work?

  In most cases SEO will work to some degree. But specific rankings cannot be guaranteed. Even following Google’s guidelines perfectly will not result in perfect rankings. But SEO done properly will always be more beneficial to a business than no SEO being done at all. For this reason, getting SEO done by a reputable provider, even just the foundation work, is important.

How long does SEO take to work?

  For an established site, on-page SEO changes can affect rankings in the first 24 hours of the work being completed. Off-page SEO can take 3 months or so to start seeing the effect, and will continue to improve rankings over a 6-12 month period. It is really hard to say as there are many factors involved. Brand new sites and domains can take a bit longer.
Webgator Reviews on Trustpilot

"Exceptional Customer Service"


In the first week we saw movement in our Google Search results. We did not even rank before engaging Carson. Within 2 weeks of Carson working on our website we reached page 1 for our key search criteria. We were very satisfied with those results. Also, not only were we getting results but Carson’s customer service was second to none.

Maree C. – Business Owner

"Incredible committed service!"


Carson and the team at Webgator provided a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Carson takes the time to get to know the outcome you want, and then does everything he can to make it a reality. He built a website for me that was exactly what I imagined and has been nothing but incredible and committed in his service during that process and ever since.

Carson at Webgator is a super friendly Brisbane local who talks to you in everyday language, makes things simple and then once you are clear on goals goes ahead and takes the initiative and autonomy to make things happen. Carson goes above and beyond in his customer service and added in many little additions without me asking or being charged. I highly recommend webgator.

"Best SEO services"


Having been burned in the world of SEO previously, and as a small business with little advertising budget, I was hesitant to make more SEO commitments. However, Carson @Webgator was amazing, from the start he made me certain that I was working with a professional. I have since seen excellent results and confidently recommend Webgator to anyone after professional, affordable, effective SEO services. Cheers!

Carson is without doubt a true specialist in his field with remarkable ability and knowledge, his methods are very effective and we are incredibly grateful for the outstanding work he has done and for the difference he is making.
