Pretty much every other search result that you are going to find today for ‘SEO Warrington’ is going to say the same thing.
It will be an SEO consultant or Company, telling you how wonderful they are and how they can definitely help you sort out your SEO.
Undoubtedly there will be promises of results, case studies of customers who they have worked with and even perhaps the offer of something ‘free’ like a website review.
So, why are you still not convinced?
The truth is that when everyone is saying the same thing, who can you believe? By what criteria should you be choosing a partner to work with on your SEO? Does it even make a difference who you choose?
Let’s see if we can bring a bit of clarity to these questions, by starting with how search works.
Why did you search for SEO Warrington?
The chances are you are either looking for a provider or you are a competitor of ours (in which case hello!), but the reality is that this isn’t really a very well searched phrase on Google.
Search has evolved and honestly, adding the word Warrington to the end of your search if you are based in or around Warrington, is pointless. Google already knows where you are and more often than not, knows what you are looking for.
The way search engines deliver their results is probably completely different from the way you think.
For example, do you know that the search you are doing now and the one someone does in the next street to you may bring back completely different results, even though you may both search for exactly the same thing?
So, if you search for SEO Warrington and the business next door searches for SEO Warrington then chances are the results will differ. Same applies for SEO Consultants or any other search term you can think of.
You might also find that the image on this page is in the ‘images’ search on Google for SEO Warrington, not because it represents SEO in Warrington but more because we’ve tagged it as such. It’s actually The Algarve but you can imagine it’s Warrington, at a push…
How can there be different results for the same search?
The reason is quite simple. Search Engines these days don’t just serve you a result based on the words you type (or speak), they use a range of other variables.
For example, Google uses factors such as where you are located based on your IP address, your previous search history and whether you have visited a particular website before, how often you make the search, when you last made the search, and what device you are searching on to name a few.
On top of this, it can pull in additional information if you are logged into your Google account as it can see whether you have sent or received any emails from any of the web addresses which are in their search results, and if you have, it may choose to push that particular website higher in the results it shows you.
And if you use a Gmail account Google can and will read your emails to see if this page matches with something that you have been emailing someone about.
Does it matter which device I use to search for SEO Warrington?
Yes, it does.
Google’s search results are often device specific so if you are using a PC or an iMac it will take your IP address as the location unless you’re signed in to your Google account in which case it may well know exactly where you are.
For example, if you have an Android tablet or mobile you have to sign in to your Google account to use them so it can often place you exactly based on GPS coordinates.
All of this means that what was a simple search query for SEO Warrington has now turned into a challenge for Google, and as its main driver is to provide you, the end-user, with the very best search result, it can use any and all information available to do this and to give you the answer.
The key here is that Google uses everything it can to give you the search result you want.
First time. Every time.
Which is why it has been so successful over the past twenty years.
If Google knows so much do I still need to include the name of the location?
Actually, Google is now assuming that you won’t include that information.
In October 2014 Google released a change to the algorithm in the UK which was dubbed the ‘Pigeon’ update. What this did was it started to use the signals we talked about earlier to include more locally based results in broad queries.
So for example, if you search for ‘cake shop’ right now wherever you are then there is a very good chance that you will see a local cake shop in the ten organic results that appear.
Of course, as Google doesn’t know whether you want to find a local cake shop, know what a cake shop is, find an album or band called ‘cake shop’ or search for a programming update called cake shop it may well include any or all of the other results.
You can further confuse the search engines by doing the search on your mobile whilst on a train.
I did this recently and it returned a cake shop near my house, based on Google knowing where I live, a couple in Oxfordshire, based on my location whilst on the train, and a couple in Manchester and Liverpool based on where I had been in recent weeks.
So whilst searchers are inherently lazy (that’s you and me by the way, sorry about that) search engines will continue to try and find a way to get the result we are really looking for by using additional information to help them best guess our intent.
Ironically though as they get better we get lazier and so when you’re looking for your local Solicitor, Fork Lift Truck supplier or Car Hire Firm in Warrington you no longer have to put in the word Warrington, although it might help.
Try a search with and without the word ‘Warrington’ and see how different the results look.
