International SEO

Expanding your business internationally is an excellent growth strategy, but it also comes with unique challenges. To successfully enter and compete in international markets, you need an international SEO strategy tailored to each location.

At Shake Digital, our comprehensive international SEO services are designed to improve your website’s visibility and reach customers globally.

What is International SEO?

International SEO refers to optimising a website for international audiences by targeting multiple countries and languages.

The key elements of an effective international SEO strategy include:

  • Localisation – Adapting website content for language, culture, and consumer preferences in each target market.
  • Multilingual optimisation – Creating website versions in the native languages of target markets.
  • Geo-targeting – Using location-specific optimisation tactics to improve ranking in target countries.

With the right international SEO strategy, you can boost website traffic, leads, and sales in foreign markets. Our customised services make it possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of international SEO?

International SEO opens up new customer bases in foreign markets, leading to increased website traffic, brand awareness, and sales globally. It levels the playing field against local companies.

How is international SEO different from local SEO?

International SEO requires extensive localisation, including multilingual content and geo-targeted technical optimisations. Local SEO focuses solely on ranking in a single target country.

Do I need a separate website for each target country?

Not necessarily – international SEO can be implemented on a single domain through careful use of subdomains, subfolders, and hreflang tags.

What languages can you optimise our website for?

Our global team can accommodate 50+ languages. We have native experts available for Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, and more.

How can you help us track international SEO results?

Our integrated analytics dashboard compiles data from Google Analytics, Search Console, and other tools to provide insights into performance in each target market.

How long does it take to see results from international SEO?

It varies based on competition and other factors, but typically takes 3-6 months to see significant organic growth in a new target market. Our ongoing optimization then continues to build on the initial gains.
