Best SEO Company in Ireland!!!  Yes, it has to be Digital Sales!

Best SEO Company in Ireland!!! Yes, it has to be Digital Sales!

Best SEO Company, OK, first things first, we are optimising this blog post for the keyword search: Best SEO Company for the .ie search market.  And maybe rank for Best SEO Company Ireland, Best SEO Company Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway.

We don’t make any bones about it.  But really, the focus of this blog post is to articulate why at Digital Sales we are the best SEO company!!  And here are a few reasons why…

And one of the reasons is this blog post!!

But first, if you are interested in our services at Digital Sales, check out this quick video: was launched in April 2018 – and thus, as of August 2019, the site is 18 months old.  Just like established digital marketing agencies such as Wolfgang Digital or ebow, sector keywords are not within their primary domain name.  So, ranking for keywords is an awful lot more difficult.

The aforementioned brands have been in existence for some time, so they have longevity credibility, yes, search engines will factor almost everything, even when your domain name was registered and how long your website has been live!

But to rank a new brand website like Digital Sales, for a mature keyword search such as: ‘Digital Marketing Agency Dublin’, will be very tough.  Some may consider pointless to try and even attempt to rank for.  You have seasoned competitors with countless backlinks and who are most likely employing best practice SEO.  FYI: We are currently on page 8 on, with 852 pages trying to rank for this keyword.

However, you can choose your battles.  And we decided to focus on SEO, as we reckon at Digital Sales, if a prospect has bad SEO results, their website probably has serious UX, technical and SEO issues.

So, if you are a start up company, with a new website, choose your battles.  However, invest is a poor, cheap bog-standard template website, then forget about trying to rank for keywords.

At we focused on SEO type search string in order to generate new leads, and not just SEO leads but also web design and web development leads.  And, how are we doing after 18 months?

Best SEO Company – How are we doing?

Search on SEO Company Dublin and SEO Expert Dublin?  I’ll save you the bother, here are the organic results as of August the 5th 2019:

SEO Company Dublin – Organic Position 4

Best SEO Company
SEO Company Dublin – Organic Position 4 – August 5th 2019 – 18 months after website launch

SEO Expert Dublin – Organic Position 3

Best SEO Company
SEO Expert Dublin – – Organic Position 3 on

Not bad for a website only 18 months old?  What’s extra special about these results is that we don’t have any keywords in our domain, – look at the websites outranking Digital Sales;, and – so, it’s easier to rank fast if you have the keywords in your domain name, but will you stay there??

We believe we will can grab position one or two for the search string above, and the primary reason is the ‘competition’, what they are doing wrong, or not doing.

It must be remembered these sites should have higher traffic figures, which is a high-ranking factor, so, it won’t be instant and don’t forget about the websites behind Digital Sales, yes, the websites in position 4, 5, 6…

Organic Position Update – 20th of August 2019

Best SEO Company – Seven reasons why we will eventually outrank our competitors

In essence, here is why I believe we will eventually outrank the above-listed websites:

  • One of the websites does not have an SSL Certificate and one has not redirected, Http to https – very poor
  • One of the websites has audio autoplay (and every time the user goes back to the homepage) which will drive up bounce rate, a Brandwatch survey found that 74 percent of respondents had a negative view of autoplay– the audio also makes some extraordinary claims regarding SEO results and future performance!!
  • These websites are awful, from website design and UX perspective
  • These websites are not regularly updated – you must keep adding content – one site only has 14 pages, 29 pages, and 43 pages – Digital Sales has over 250 pages.
  • Two sites are hosted outside Ireland
  • One site isn’t even mobile-friendly
  • Looking at the websites and alt tags, one website has 14 images, of which 4 images have no alt tags. Another has 69 images with 28 missing alt tags, and another missing 3 alt tags

And these companies claim to be SEO Experts?????  Make sure you avoid all the issues above.

These are some of the reasons, we believe we will eventually outrank the aforementioned sites, but what have we done at Digital Sales, here is a quick list, which you can use as a checklist:

  • Mobile Friendly
  • Effective social proofing throughout the website with a strong call to action
  • Great User Experience and Website Design
  • Website Hosted in Ireland (high-quality hosting)
  • Compressed Coding Techniques employed for best page download results (Web Speed Optimisation)
  • Embed Video into blog posts (including this blog post) in order to increase dwell time and reduce bounce rate
  • Technical SEO employed
  • On page SEO best practice employed on every page within the website
  • Social Media channels regularly updated
  • Content Marketing – continually adding content to the site
  • The blog post content for the two pages above are over 1100 words, this blog post is over 1200 – when it starts to rank, add more text – we are not suggesting page word count should be a certain length, but good answers to questions usually contain a detailed response, ergo a good word count.  And updating content is always good practice.
  • Valuable resources on the website – generating sector-specific traffic and in time, backlinks
  • GMB content marketing and optimization
  • Customer Reviews and Responses
  • Alt tags on 768 images throughout the site
  • No broken links
  • Embed Google Maps (a Dublin map is important for these keyword strings), into the website footer throughout the entire website
  • Siloing (Internal Linking)
  • Backlinks
  • Updated .xml sitemap
  • Monitoring Google Search Console for any issues and quickly addressing them

Best SEO Company – Quick Summary

Fundamentally, if you are a start-up business or a business in need of sales quickly, you must identify quick wins, search strings with little competition.  And then identify weak competition – analyze your competitors’ websites and then go after them for the keywords they are ranking for.

And generate great content from everything related to your business.  See what we did with the fact that we started to rank for two SEO search strings?  We made this SEO blog post from it to target the keyword: Best SEO Company.  Make the most of success stories and generate content (more website pages).

The above are just some of the tactics we employed and why we believe in Digital Sales we class ourselves as a ‘best SEO company’ throughout Ireland.  There are no quick answers to effective SEO results, it is a combination of countless factors.
