About A1 SEO Glasgow

A1 SEO Glasgow is a Glasgow based marketing agency that specializes in search engine optimisation. We are passionate about no-nonsense SEO campaigns that deliver a robust and long-lasting return on investment.

Our approach is rooted in transparency. We pride ourselves in educating our partners on SEO’s benefits, a pillar of online marketing that is wrongly shrouded in mystery. From the offset, we want our partners to understand what we are doing and how this will have a tangible, positive impact on their businesses.

A1 SEO Glasgow's Story

A1 SEO Glasgow has very humble roots. Initially, the company (previously GMS Digital) was founded by Graham Grieve in 2014 to help bands, artists, and not-for-profits with their marketing efforts.

After some success, small businesses started coming to us for more complex marketing activities. Due to the demand, the company quickly transformed into a full-service digital marketing agency offering everything from SEO to social media management and web design.

It became pretty clear to us that we were one of many jack of all trades type digital agencies offering a wide range of services with only average knowledge in everything but search engine optimisation.

Late in 2016, the company moved all social media management, graphic design, and web design over to trusted niche specialists to focus purely on SEO. In this area, our team’s passions lay.

It just so happened that we developed this passion during an exciting time of change for the SEO industry. Google had recently released a handful of exciting updates that forever changed the SEO landscape. With our newfound focus, the team continued to deliver results. Powerful results.

In early 2019, we rebranded GMS Digital as A1 SEO Glasgow to reflect our focus on search engine marketing. By this point, 94% of our business was purely SEO and PPC, the other 6% being development projects that shared close synergy with SEO projects and targeted influencer outreach campaigns.

We dedicated our efforts to championing SEO within Glasgow’s business community. With understanding passed on from experienced industry professionals comes concrete, integrated marketing strategies that help businesses dominate their niche.

We have seen unbelievable growth year on year since working with Graham and the team. The initial process was simple and Graham worked hard to put complex SEO terms into plain English for our senior management team. Organic revenue started to increase dramatically after 4 months, continuing to this day.

We've worked together with several local SEO clients over the last period and Graham is not only astute, he brings a wealth of knowledge. He does what he says on the tin. Would recommend 100% and look forward to working together again to improve our clients rankings in the SERPS!

We used A1 SEO for our client, USC Hydraulics', website and were surprised by the results that the company delivered for us within a short space of time. The knowledge from the team was second to none after prevous experiences with SEO companies. We now rank much higher on key search terms in our industry and the long term stategy we have in place is working.

Graham is by far the best in SEO he not only goes out his way to help you but knows exactly what he is doing. Nothing is too much trouble for him. Thumbs up from Discount Pet Supplies

Outstanding knowledge of current SEO strategies and best-practice; A1 was really helpful in identifying the root causes of our ranking problems to deliver sustainable improvements, rather than artificial short-term boosts.
