Improve visibility globally

Expanding your business globally requires an in-depth understanding of both SEO and how your international audience differs. We conduct thorough audience and market research, and pay particular attention to how your website might perform in your target territory.

This enables us to craft a bespoke international SEO strategy that’ll help your global sites reach your target audience and rank. 

We make sure your international pages are indexed in the countries you’re focusing on. If they’re not, your pages won’t be reaching the people you want them to be. Geotargeting plays a huge role in attracting the right audience and guess what…we’ll help you out with that as well.

International expansion

Whether you know exactly which countries you wish you target or want help to identify lucrative markets, we’re here to provide the solutions.

We won’t let you rush blindly into new territories: ideally, you need to really understand the marketplace you’re stepping into before you commit to a new location. As your international SEO consultant agency, it’s our job to carry out the due diligence.

We’ll deliver in-depth market research on how your website might perform in specific regions. Then you can boldly go ahead, confident that you’re showing the world your best side.

International keyword research

The same keywords aren’t always relevant to an international audience, which is why thorough audience analysis is carried out. 

Every region has nuances and different ways of communicating, so keyword research must be ultra-unique to a certain area. Sounds like a lot of work? We can help!

At Distinctly, we’re a multilingual SEO agency, giving us an important edge in understanding how different languages are used in everyday situations – and how to speak them online.

Hreflang set-up

URL structures can seem like a huge headache if you’re not an expert. Thankfully, we are. We know how to use hreflang tags to direct visitors to the right version of your website, depending on what region they’re in.

It’s vital to unearth any underlying issues that could be hindering your organic visibility. Websites are sometimes held back by seemingly minor problems that have remained hidden for years – we don’t let this happen. Our technical SEO specialists will shine a light on any issues and create clear plans of action to remedy them and push your business up those search rankings.

Our talented digital PR team will create campaigns tailored to the countries you’re targeting, bearing in mind language, culture and local sensibilities.

So you’re an expert, globally.

Frequently asked questions about international SEO

What does a International SEO agency do?

Operating in foreign markets requires a great deal of investigation and analysis. An International SEO agency will conduct thorough audience and market research, and pay particular attention to how your website might perform in your target territory.

Throughout the time working with you, they should follow a truly collaborative approach, staying in constant communication with your development team. You need to make absolutely sure that you’re moving towards achieving the objectives behind your international expansion.

When do I need a International SEO agency?

An International is eeded when you want to tap into a new audience or wanting to promote your services or products internationally. An International SEO agency should be able to highlight opportunities for growth on a global scale.

Is Hreflang essential for international SEO?

Hreflang should only be deployed if you have duplicate or very similar content on multiple international websites. Hreflang acts as a signal and helps Google understand which pages should be indexed in a specific country.

Why is localisation important for international SEO?

Undertaking localised keyword research will help you better understand your international audience. Online behaviours change from country to country, so it’s important you don’t adopt a catch-all method.

 

Which URL structures are best for international sites?

The specific URL structure you should use depends on the type of website and the size of its consumer base, but a ccTLD (country code top-level domain) such as distinctly.fr gives you the most flexibility to fully optimise the website for its target market. You might also choose to use a subdomain (fr.distinctly.co) or a subdirectory (distinctly.co/fr).
