Technical SEO Agency
Laying the technical foundations for SEO success
How we do it
Correct your technical foundations
Our knowledgeable technical SEO specialists can identify any issues that are hindering your organic visibility and preventing you from connecting with potential customers.
Our solution-focused team will draw up clear plans of action to remedy any problems. Then, we work in partnership with your website developers to make implementing improvements quick and simple.
Prioritise actions that make an impact
Our simple and effective recommendations aim to ‘move the needle’ and trigger better technical performance, which is the basis of any SEO strategy and will always pay dividends.
And to get those recommendations actioned as quickly as possible, we tailor them to your CMS to make any development work more straightforward.
Enable organic growth
We’re proud to have an experienced team who really know what they’re talking about. They benchmark the improvements they make, and keep track of progress so you don’t have to.
We’ll regularly brief you and your development team about our findings, and point out the ‘big wins’ that will drive your business forward.
Our recommendation reports are highly detailed, so that you can see how well you’re doing after the technical improvements have been implemented.

Our technical SEO services
If you imagine that search engines have a list of must-haves for websites, a technical SEO agency gets those items ticked off.
We conduct website audits to identify issues holding your website back, and reducing its visibility. Then, we lay the technical foundations that will future-proof your website and get it on track for serious organic growth.
Strategic analysis of the competition helps us to understand the landscape, and spot the gaps we need to tackle together, so you can outperform your competitors.
Our recommendations are tailored to your specific objectives and are assigned priority levels, while our ongoing audit process helps keep you and your development team working towards a common goal.
Site architecture consultancy
We’ll make sure that your website architecture meets best practice standards, reflects your business needs and is in peak condition for achieving maximum organic growth.
We also proactively target keywords selected from our in-depth keyword research, and optimise your site structure to make the site as visible as it can be.
When Distinctly is involved in the migration of your website, SEO is factored in from the start. A common mistake is to only work on SEO as an afterthought. At best, this can put your site at a disadvantage, and in the worst case scenario it can completely destroy your organic visibility. That’s where a technical SEO agency like ours comes in.
We put keyword research and sitemap planning at the centre of the website migration process, right where it should be. We evaluate your organic search potential and put your best foot forward when it comes to online visibility.
Site speed optimisation
Site speed is a crucial issue: users don’t have the patience for slow-loading sites – and neither does Google. It’s a must to get your website functioning for users as quickly as possible and it should be incredibly user friendly, especially on mobile devices.
Slow loading speed can obviously weaken your conversion rate, so we’ll eliminate that risk. Plus, we’ll make sure that your website passes every criteria of the key Core Web Vitals.

Does my business need technical SEO?
No business can afford to ignore the importance of technical SEO. If you’re neglecting the technical foundations of your website, it’s likely that the site’s not working as hard for you as it could be.
There could even be unseen issues holding you back from achieving your potential. Perhaps you’re not as prominent on Google as you could be, or maybe your slow-loading or badly structured site is turning people away. Technical SEO consultant services do the detective work and remedy problems like these.

Frequently asked questions about technical SEO
Why is my website not being indexed?
Underlying technical issues can result in websites not being indexed. One reason may be that a noindex code has been added to your website’s HTML, alerting Google to stop this page entering its index. Another technical issue may be that Google’s access is being blocked via the robots.txt file.
This is a common issue, but one that should be addressed immediately.
What is schema markup?
Structured data markup, or schema markup, can be used to tell search engines what your data means, producing more informative results for the user and (often) increases in website visibility and traffic. We can see examples of this with enhanced product descriptions in the search results, including information on delivery, in-stock availability and more.
Do 404 errors affect SEO performance?
A large number of 404 errors will start to affect a search engine’s crawl demand, but most of the time they’re due to websites continuously changing. To prevent Google from revisiting these errors, set up an informative 404 page to navigate users to a working destination and permanently remove pages using a 410 status code.
