We produce tailored, multilingual, international SEO strategies for our global clients.
Whether it's a few pages of content for your site that require translation or an entire localisation campaign you're looking for, we can help you optimise your content for different cultures and regions across the world.
In short, our team ensures as many people as possible find your business in their local search engines, and land on your chosen pages whatever language they use and wherever they are.
What Is International SEO?
International SEO is the process of improving a website's visibility across local search engines worldwide for highly relevant and commercially important keyphrases.
An international SEO strategy is much more than just straightforward translation of pages from one language to another.
Our strategy involves digging into the trends and habits of your audience in each and every target country to determine how they are interacting with your marketplace, what their obstacles to conversion are, how they are searching, and how best to engage them to convert.
Our strategies provide a long-term platform to deliver your brand to the most relevant audience, in the best way possible to engage them with your business.
How Can International SEO Help Your Business?
Failing to provide localised content which is visible to users in foreign countries means you are missing out on connecting with over 70% of the online population.
Today only 24% of online users speak English – and this figure is decreasing.
Your customers want unique, localised content. In fact, 90% of internet users prefer to surf online in their native language (ref. Deutsche Welle, 2011).
Even more interesting for retailers is that almost half of those questioned said they would never make a purchase from a site that isn't in their own language.
The benefits of expanding your business internationally mean you can:
- Attract new business in each target location
- Increase brand awareness internationally
- Reach into untapped (lower competition) markets
- Strengthen customer loyalty
Businesses tapping into new markets online often stumble across technical SEO or linguistic barriers, such as international duplicate content or regional differences in language.
Here at QueryClick, we already know what the obstacles are, and can create a path for your multinational strategy that is effective and technically simple to implement.
How Does QueryClick Do International SEO?
QueryClick use the search engines' own tools and supported coding standards to present a clearly defined multinational architecture that leaves no scope for duplication issues.
We've developed a suite of in-house tools that we use to circumvent any limitations in client's CMS or eComms systems to execute our strategies and initial technical audits.
For example, a tool code-named Octoparse lets us automatically generate href-lang sitemaps on clients' behalf, often solving technical headaches that might take their teams weeks to implement dynamically.
We also have a rather nifty in-house tool which allows our clients, sat at their own desks, to see how they are performing in any country in the world, in any search engine, for any suite of search terms with just the click of a mouse.
Our reporting takes in-house info and consolidates it with your choice of analytics package to give you a clean, simple-to-understand overview of your multinational campaign on a country by country basis
All our reports provide plain-language commentary on your campaign performance against KPIs, upcoming objectives, and areas of global opportunity.
