My name’s Dan Brooks. I’m a freelance SEO consultant in my spare time, but also work as an SEO consultant for Aira Monday to Friday – we were voted the UK’s best large SEO agency.
In my spare time, I work with a small number of businesses to help them increase their organic ranking and traffic through tried and tested SEO.
Where You’ve Seen Me
I regularly speak and run training sessions at a number of SEO events through-out the UK and via webinars.
Technical SEO Consultancy Services
I specialise in Technical SEO. That means looking at the more complicated aspects of your website so that search engines like Google and Bing can crawl it, index it and rank it within their results pages.
Below are a couple of the areas that I can help with.
A detailed review of your website in its current form. I’ll take a look at what’s doing well and what could be improved. I’ll make sure that your site can be crawled and indexed first and foremost, before drilling down into your technical setup, on-page and off-page SEO and compare it with that of your search competitors.
Providing support with your technical SEO. From canonicals, website migrations, pagespeed reviews and structured data to log file analysis, site structure and hreflang configuration.
I regularly run training sessions on keyword research at BrightonSEO and this is arguably an area that I’ve come to specialise in. I’ll help you identify the right keywords to target at various stages of your customers buying journey and map them accurately to your existing site to for maximum organic performance.
Making sure that you’ve got the fundamental elements of SEO implemented. From page titles and descriptions to heading structure and internal links. Together we’ll make sure that search engines are able to crawl, index and rank your content correctly.
I’ll review how the existing content on your site performs and provide you with recommendations to improve it as well as recommend new opportunities where possible.
Getting your local Google My Business listing optimised correctly, track local visitors so you can see the benefits of local SEO and implement on-page and off-page best practices to boost your local ranking.
Citations are slightly different from traditional backlinks. They’re unlinked mentions of your business and play an extremely important role in Local SEO and increasing your ranking position within search results.
SEO Training & Workshops
I can run bespoke training sessions and workshops around your requirements. If you’d like to chat about training, please get in touch.

Freelance SEO Consultant – FAQ’s
How much does SEO cost?
Most SEO agencies and freelance consultants will work from an agreed day rate. Depending on the level of experience and expertise the agency or individual has, you can expect to pay anywhere between £250-£1500 a day.
For my clients, I always try to provide a bespoke price for my time as each website is unique and has different performance goals.
Am I committed to a long term contract with you?
No. All of my clients will sign an ‘Independent Contractor Agreement’. Within this it states that you can cancel any recurring retainers with me at any time – all I ask is that you give me 30 days notice.
How quickly will I see SEO results?
This is a hard question to answer. SEO takes time – it’s a long term marketing investment but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up some quick results whilst working towards a larger goal. For example if you have a lot of content published that isn’t being crawled; a quick review could potentially see improvements overnight. However, more technical fixes can take a lot longer to make a difference.
A general rule to follow; if a freelance SEO consultant says that they can double your traffic in less than 3 months then it’s probably a red flag.
