A portsmouth SEO agency You can trust

Carrot Top Marketing is an SEO agency based in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is a marketing strategy used to improve natural search engine results. Natural (organic) search is a great way to increase brand exposure whilst generating new traffic.
The overall goal of search engine optimisation is to increase organic web traffic and therefore grow sales, leads and customers for our clients.

How Does your
website grade?


SEO is vital to the success of your business. If your website does not appear on page 1 of Google then you may find it challenging to promote your product or service.

We employ a forensic approach to search engine optimisation that will significantly improve your search engine ranking; increasing organic traffic to your website.

Keyword Research

In-depth keyword research to identify the terms and phrases that will drive relevant traffic to your website; with ongoing reviews to identify changes in search trends. After the initial keyword research, we will optimise and report on up to 40 pre-agreed keywords.

SEO Content / Blog Marketing

Content-marketing including blog setup (if required) plus monthly articles created by a professional SEO copywriter.

Website Usability Testing

To identify any issues, with a focus on improving conversion rates (CRO) and increasing ROI.


We then ensure each web page is fully optimised for search engines, this process includes improving the website content, metadata, navigation and structure.

Check and fix - SEO review

We will use a combination of SEO tools and manual checks to identify the most common technical issues that affect search engine rankings, visitor retention, and conversions.

Social Media Review

Social media review and business profile setup for 2 beneficial platforms (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) if required.

Homepage Content Audit

Our SEO technicians will audit your homepage content to ensure it is SEO-friendly and keyword rich.

Local SEO

We improve the search presence of your website by ensuring your business is listed on any relevant directories and is integrated with your social media accounts.

Frequently asked questions

If you want to be found online, then yes, we certainly recommend it.

No matter what you sell or provide, being found by people searching for what you offer will increase the likelihood of you making a sale, getting enquiries and securing clients.

The simple answer is no, and nobody can. Because the algorithm for search engines is not under our control, we can not control how those search engines show you in search results. Optimising a website too well, too fast, results in your website being knocked down the rankings.

However, what we do do is optimise your website as best as physically possible to produce the best results possible, but it’s never guaranteed.

The minimum contract length is 3 months. This ensures that we have enough time and a fair chance to provide you with results.

However, if you decide to purchase a package in bulk, then your contract length will change accordingly.

As it’s not a one-size-fits-all service, it’s completely random and unpredictable.

Some businesses may be lucky enough to see results within a couple of months, some may take longer, and some may not ever see results. A good SEO strategy is one that is consistently being adapted and tweaked based on the data. What works for one won’t work for the other – the research and methods we employ and consistently monitor is what takes the most time.

It completely depends on your aims and objectives.

If you are looking for more guaranteed, short-term results, then paid advertising will be better for you. However, just bear in mind that not having your website optimised for SEO means that your offering will disappear once your paid advertising campaigns stop.

Likewise with SEO, it may take longer and more patience to see results.

We recommend, when you are in a position to, doing both in order to be successful with being found via search engines.
