Who's the best at promoting themselves?

Data Last Gathered: Jan 24th, 2014
Data Previously Gathered: Dec 18th, 2013

I have analysed over 1,000 search phrases related to website design, development and SEO in Australia. I determined the websites that were performing best in the search results for those phrases using my Search Result Parser , data on search volumes from Google AdWords and some proprietary formulas to determine the value of a search result position from that data.

Please don't use a businesses ranking in this list as a signal that they will do a good job for you. Check out the business before committing. Some companies use SEO tricks to gain ranking for a short time. You don't want them to do this to you. I've written an article called SEO Adelaide - Who can you trust? which may help you work out who is good and who is bad.

See below for a list of the top 100 websites or find out where your website is placed in Australia. I've also provided a helpful list of the big winners and the big losers.

Are you an Australian business with a website and want it to show up in your own markets top 100? My SEO Articles and SEO Tools can help you on your way.

Tested Search Phrases

Keyword Analysis Report
This information has been gather using a proprietary tool that I have developed and use in my Keyword Analysis Reports for my clients.
You can get a FREE report based on research of your own market as part of my Business Package .

Over a thousand search phrases were analysed covering the most popular searches related to website businesses in Australia. Each phrase was weighted according to how relevant it was to the subject matter. For example "website design company Sydney" has a higher weighting than "web design tutorial". Google's Keyword Tool estimates that these phrases are used around 50 Million times per month!

A search was made on each chosen phrase and the top 100 websites were gathered. Then each website earned points based on their position in search results (See my Search Result Parser ), the phrases weighting and how frequently the phases is used in searches. So the top websites are the ones which frequently showed up in the popular and relevant search results.
