Aqueous celebrate being recommended by RAR

We are delighted and frankly a little bit proud of the fact that we have recently gained ‘recommended’ status by RAR, the Recommended Agencies Register.

To be recommended you literally have to have been recommended by your customers for the work you do and there is no better validation than asking people you have been working with to tell an independent body what they think of you.

Customers were asked to rate us against an number of areas where we help them and we achieved above 80% (and in most cases much higher) for SEO, Paid search & PPC, B2B Brand Strategy, B2C Brand Strategy, New Product Development and Web Design. In fact our overall score was around 90% against everything we do which on the face of it seems quite good.

Of course we’re not happy with this; we’d love to get 100% so rather than sit on our laurels we have embarked on a programme of improvements internally including introducing new software and reporting, new process flows and streamlining our product offering to provide a more streamlined and clear service for customers.

Now we have three simple package areas of ‘Grow’, ‘Sustain’ and ‘Recover’ so no matter where your website ranks in Google, we have a package that will fit.

So a huge’ thank you’ to all our customers who took the time to rate us. We will of course repay your vote of confidence by redoubling our efforts and continually looking for improvements so we can help you rank better in search.

The Recommended Agency Register (RAR) is a vital part of identifying and contacting SEO, web building, marketing and PR agencies that come recommended by their clients.  It’s the only platform where clients vouch for their agencies by rating them on the services they deliver.

Google knowledge boxes are not always the authoritative answer…

Of later there have been more and more instances of Google dominating particular search results with what are supposedly the ‘definitive’ answers.

As an example when you search for ‘weather in Australia’ you get this sort of result;

Australia Weather


This week however we searched for ‘UK Average Temperatures’ and above the Met Office, and Wikipedia came this result;

Google Knowledge Box

Naturally we’re delighted to see a result (even though it didn’t actually answer our question at all) but we would question whether Woodlands Junior School is more authoritative in this respect than the Met Office?

On the brighter side however I know I can now rely on the answers from my nine year old when I want to know anything. Kids are so bright these days I sometimes wonder why we need Google at all….
