90.63% of web pages get NO traffic from Google!

The competition is out there, and it's tough!

Electricians in most towns in the UK face a LOT of competition. For example, if you operate on Peterborough go to Google and search for electrician in Peterborough and see just how many electricians get listed in the search results.

The highest positions are likely to be occupied by companies who have paid to be there through Google Ads, and amongst the other results on page 1 you're likely to find directory websites, such as Checkatrade, Yell,, etc.

Even if you're listed on those directory websites, along with NAPIT and NICEIC, so are your competitors.

How can you improve your search engine results?

Think about your business, and what your areas of speciality are. Then consider the area you operate in, and the surrounding towns and villages.

What you need to do next is create search terms which combine your services and locations. For example, keeping with the Peterborough example and including the surrounding villages, besides the usual electrician in... searches, you might want to rank high for search terms such as:

  • EICR services in Peterborough
  • electric vehicle charging installer in Whittlesey
  • PAT tester in Fengate
  • CCTV installation in Yaxley
  • fuseboard replacement in Sawtry
  • etc...

Time to get focused

Once you have done this important exercise, prioritise those combinations which are the most important to you, and then prepare some relevant web content for new dedicated web pages which can be used to stand out in their own right for specific search terms like those examples listed above.

We'll call these landing pages

You might now be thinking But this could mean I'll have many separate landing pages on my website and you'll be absolutely right. That's how it works...

A website with a dedicated page for EV charging installer in Whittlesey is far more likely to get ranked higher for that search term than an electrician's website which only covers more generic electrical terms in the broader area of Peterborough.

Put simply, someone else is more likely to get the job!

How much do landing pages cost?

That depends on how many pages you need, how your website has been built, and how efficient your web designer is.

Some web designers like Targa may be able to create a landing page on one of our websites in as little as an hour, if it's based closely on the design of one of your existing web pages, with some subtle but important content changes and changes to some of the page tags.

Some web designers may take longer, and some landing pages may be need to have their own design, separate images, a contact form or other features, and therefore they'll take longer and cost more.

Then of course the additional pages will need to be registered with the search engines.

Is all that effort worth it?

The additional work is certainly worth considering, but time and budget make it necessary to prioritise, so go for the most important services/town combinations to begin with.

You might decide on just a couple of landing pages to see how effective they are during the first few weeks. If they're working for you, you can always add to the list over time if you want.
