You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars per month on SEO like you’ve inevitably been quoted from other

On-page SEO (also referred to as ‘onsite’) is considered all things to do within the website, both front and back end. Basically, the information we give Google to be able to understand and interpret it.
Offsite SEO is often considered as link building. This is when external websites link to you, thus passing a piece of their web authority on to you. This is still highly regarded by Google as an important element within the algorithm.
How users interact with your organic results in Google and how the interact with your website is crucial.
Local SEO aka Google My Business (GMB), is the best way to be found by local customers. If you’re retail, office based, a clinic or practice, bricks and mortar or just have a physical location where you can be contacted, GMB is a must. Local search is now defining local business success, with constant mobile searches and keyword intent ‘near me’, customers want to find their nearest location. The Google local pack, gives your more local visibility, as well s more real estate if you have SEO rankings below the pack. You need to be visible when customers are searching for you.
We don’t have the large overheads like agencies do. We provide affordable SEO services that won’t break the bank.
We’re locally based and often travel to visit clients. So we can meet with you in person and build a real relationship.
We don’t outsource, so we provide full transparency over all of the SEO work that we’re conducting for your website.
We don’t believe in locking clients into contracts. Essentially we operate off a handshake for monthly SEO work.
I've worked with Mick across some of my own businesses, as well as my employment roles. Mick's knowledge of digital marketing is excellent, but the thing that impressed me most about him was that he was much more than just a supplier to his clients. Mick continuously developed lasting personal relationships with his clients which showed me that he really cared about them and their business success.
I've worked with Mick for a number of years now where he's managed different elements of marketing for my business. He always explains things in an understandable way and is completely open and honest with marketing concepts and outcomes. He's helped us take our business to the next level through branding, marketing and consulting.
A frictionless agency experience is hard to come by... Mick not only supplied that but also ensured results were delivered!
I have worked with Mick across many client projects and have always made introductions with total confidence purely based on Mick's professional attitude and desired to achieve great results.
Mick has done an excellent job of managing our SEO and digital marketing for the past year. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and we have been very impressed by his dedication, hard work and commitment to ensuring the best results for our business. Highly recommend!
I first met Mick a few years ago working on a mutual client. It was obvious that Mick had a very deep understanding of the core strategies around SEO/SEM. It was also refreshing to see the relationship that he had developed with the client. Mick's involvement had a direct link to increase performance for the business.
options of rebuilding it so that it was more user and Google friendly. After speaking with Mick, he suggested that we redesign my website and buy a new domain to be more in line with my brand name. Not only did he do a fantastic job building me a new website at a very affordable rate (at nearly half the cost of other quotes I'd obtained) but he was very responsive and knowledgeable which helped me understand the process and timelines along the way.
Mick from Media MC. has made a lot of changes and updates to our website and has been managing our SEO for our plumbing company for over 12 months now.

His knowledge and understanding of SEO has lead to more hits to my website, more enquiry for my business and more converted sales. Mick is super responsive, always answers my questions (no matter how random and left-field!) and does what he says he will, by when he says he will. I consider Mick part of the team and I am so thankful to have his skills supporting my business.
Mick is always prompt, courteous, informative, and generous with his time. There are always prospect/clients/stakeholders that require varying degrees of support and response to detailed questions. Mick is always responsive and understood where and when to bring in the right expertise.
After feeling left in the dark by our previous SEO agency, we reached out to Mick for SEO services for Your Side Australia, a not-for-profit disability and aged care services provider.

Mick was an absolute lifesaver in the migration of our website and carrying over all our SEO. He helped identify and resolve some major issues with the developers prior to launching the new site and managed to carry over and maintain all our SEO. Since, he has been an integral part of our team and has helped identify new ways for us to improve our SEO and generate revenue. He has also helped immensely with guidance and support in other online areas which goes above and beyond his role. Cannot recommend Mick highly enough ?

SEO on the Gold Coast is a very competitive market, as well as it is very tarnished. We’re sure you’ve had some experience at some point in running your business where you’ve spoken to a Gold
agency and been quoted a ridiculous amount for their SEO services. A lot of smoke and mirrors, false promises and empty results. Keep in mind, larger scale agencies have huge overheads, different levels of staff and fancy offices to ‘wow’ you with, but is that really what you need? They’ll also be outsourcing the SEO work to foreign markets, a locally based SEO consultant (like us) or have a junior intern implementing most of the work while you deal with a face-fronting account manager who doesn’t even know the basics of SEO.
Media MC. have 8 years of SEO experience. We’ve seen the transition in Gold Coast SEO from what it was in 2012, to what it is now. In 2012, SEO was different. In 2015, SEO was different. It constantly shifts and pivots. Now with Google being more sophisticated and more savvy, we’ve got to play by their rules. We’ve worked with start-ups, SMEs, locals, government and enterprise brands, but now we want to focus on the local businesses, as they have the most to benefit from
We want to help the small businesses grow, and that all starts with their SEO. It all starts with understanding your objectives and researching the industry and competitors, as well as the
Spammy Link Building
Link building can do more harm than good. Make sure you know how your provider is building links, and ensure you get link reports.
Outsourcing to Foreign Markets
SEO is often outsourced to cheaper markets to maximise profit margins. Media MC. do ALL of their SEO work in-house.
SEO does take time to gain traction and generate good results, but don’t be suckered into long-term contracts.
Guaranteed #1 Rankings
As SEO’s we have no control over Google, all we can do is abide by their guidelines. Don’t be manipulated or misled with false promises.
Account Manager Hierarchies
Some agencies have account managers that aren’t actually doing the work themselves, a uni grad behind the scenes is.
Fancy Proposals & Sales Meetings
Fancy proposals, suits in sales meetings with glamorous presentations doesn’t quite explain what you actually need.
Just because it’s a big quote, doesn’t mean you’ll get big results. SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. You won’t get the ROI.
‘Packages’ in SEO makes us cringe. Every business website is different. They require a unique approach, not a package.
``If you don’t know the user intent behind the keywords you’re optimising for then you’re doing It wrong. Also, if you are optimising for keywords vs the needs of the user then you’re doing it wrong.``
``Focus on searcher intent. This should underpin all of your activities—research, creation and distribution. What is the searcher really trying to achieve and how is your content helping them reach this goal?``
