SEO Services

Organic Search Engine Optimization you can rely on.

There is a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to SEO. As a website owner, you need to be aware of scam artists who make false promises, and use Black Hat techniques, in order to scam you into signing up for their services.

The purpose of SEO is to drive relevant traffic to your website, so that you can convert visitors into customers.

This should be done organically and ethically, using only White Hat techniques. Online success is dependent on conversion, not just traffic. It is therefore important to find the right strategy that will work for you over the long term. There are no quick fixes!

Our monthly SME SEO packages address the needs of most small to medium sized businesses.

Aqua IT Consulting only uses best practice SEO techniques. We will not perform any “black hat” techniques or hacks, or violate any industry guidelines in order to boost your content.

We work hard to ensure that you stand out above your competitors and that your website performs well on an ongoing basis.

Doing well on Google and other Search engines, requires constant monitoring, tweaking, keyword research, and more.

This takes time, and you also need to be aware of the following:

Organic SEO is a lot more cost-effective than PPC in the long term
Organic search drives almost 95% of all traffic. It is also interesting to note that 70-80% of web visitors ignore ads, focusing on the organic results instead.
There are no guarantees, and the Ranking of your site will depend on a lot of factors
Google is quite choosy and demanding when it comes to the ranking process.

Google uses over 200 rankings factors, including, but not limited to keyword difficulty (competition for your chosen keywords), if your website is optimized for the keywords, the age of your domain name, inbound traffic to a page, social media engagement, etc. It also constantly raises its standards so that only high-quality sites rank on top positions.

SEO takes time
You will not see instant results. It can take 3 to 6 weeks to see results on low to medium difficulty keywords, and up to 12 months or longer to see 1st page results for high competition keywords.
You need to be realistic

You cannot expect to rank on the first page of Google for highly competitive terms such as “accommodation” without paying for Google AdWords.

You need to ensure that you have great content, and that your website’s text copy is relevant to your target audience. Great content goes a long way to ensuring online success, and establishing a sound marketing strategy. This will result in optimal user experience, more traffic to the site (new & returning), the sharing of content by visitors via social media, the creation of natural back links, and improved organic SEO.


Our SME packages do not include Advanced SEO services. If you require more advanced, or custom SEO services such as Google AdWords – Pay Per Click Advertisements (PPC), Content Writing, Social Media Management, Link Building etc. please contact us for more information.

As a guideline, you can expect to pay R3500 + ($250 +), depending on the size of your site, for the initial audit, and from R5000 ($400) upwards per campaign, per month, for more advanced SEO services.

However, if you have a limited budget, the following out-the-box options are available, and can be added to any one of our Monthly Website Care Packages:


  • Our SEO packages are only available to clients who have also signed up for one of our website care packages.
  • SEO success is not a one-sided exercise, and you will need to provide us with regular and well written content for upload to your site’s blog.  On top of this, you will still also need to promote your site via your own offline and online marketing channels.
  • A favourable listing position on Google’s Search Results page is not guaranteed, especially if you choose not to follow our advice.
  • Online trends do affect SEO, and you need to be aware of this. For example, during Covid lockdowns, less people were doing travel related enquiries. Search results can also be seasonal.
  • Negative reviews will result in a lower listing position. If your business is listed on Google, and people are posting negative feedback, it is your responsibility to address this in order to improve your rating score.
  • Clients based outside of South Africa or overseas, are billed annually only.
  • Clients based in South Africa, can chose to be billed monthly or annually.
  • A minimum contract of 12 months applies on sign-up for SEO.
