What does Steve say about our small business SEO?

SEO Clients for a small business

“We asked Seb to improve the position of our website in Google for keywords relating to guitar lessons. When we started the SEO campaign, we were at the bottom of 1st page in Google for our chosen keywords and enquiries were down from previous years. As the leading music school in our area, it was really important for us to be represented in the top half of the 1st page in Google for local searches related to guitar lessons. Seb worked on our SEO for three to four months and managed to get us consistently in the top three results for all relevant searches related to guitar lessons. As a result of this SEO campaign my business has seen a significant rise in enquiries for guitar lessons and the investment I made has paid off. I would happily recommend Seb and XL Websites to any small business that needs to boost their position in Google. The service Seb provided was fast, efficient and did exactly what I wanted.” – Steve Wild, owner of Southend Music School.
