Why Choose Katakuru Over The Other Pretoria SEO Companies?

Return on Investment

I have run businesses myself. I completely understand that the bottom line is all that matters. Every cent going out, must be accounted for. That is why my primary focus is to ensure that you get a return on your investment.

When you work with me as your SEO Consultant, we formulate a plan to ensure that every cent you spend, comes back into your business in the form of new business.


I do search engine optimization for my own websites, both in South Africa, and in the United States, so I am in the trenches. Every hour of every day. I know what it takes to rank. I experiment on my own websites, and through extensive trial and error, I earmark the seo strategies that are safe, and effective for my client’s websites.

I am also in mastermind groups with some of the best SEO consultants in the Jacaranda City, and in other parts of the world. We discuss search marketing strategies daily, and share our experiences with each other so our clients can benefit.

Our SEO Services

Want to work with one of the top ranked SEO companies in Pretoria to increase your search engine traffic, or looking to enter a new market with paid advertising? Maybe you have a promotional video that isn’t delivering the return you’d hope for?

No matter your goals, as a leading South Africa SEO Specialist, I have proven solutions to match. As a search marketing expert, I research, plan and execute profitable online marketing campaigns, combining channels to earn you amazing returns.

With my single-site SEO service the goal is to rank your website number 1 in organic search results for as many keywords that relate to your business as you’d like to target. This includes keyword research, and continous off-page and on-page SEO. The monthly cost for this service will vary depending on the competitiveness of the market you are in, and the number of products or services you would like to rank for. This is a great option for small to medium sized businesses that are just getting their feet wet with SEO, or those that have limited marketing budgets. Most South Africa SEO companies offer similar packages, but I am 100% confident that my packages will offer you a greater return.

If you are looking to take things to the next level and want to dominate the search engines with multiple first page results we suggest you check out our search engine domination service.

For local search terms (e.g. “best seo company in Pretoria“) Google often displays a pack of either three or seven local results near the top of the first page in a pack with map listings. On a mobile browser these listings have a call button located right there on the search results page.

In early 2014 mobile search volumes surpassed desktop search volumes. This makes showing up in these local mobile results more important than ever before.

The algorithm used by search engines to decide which businesses are displayed in these local listings differs completely from the algorithm used to rank sites in the organic (non-local) results. This service is usually provided as an add-on to one of my other SEO services, since onsite optimization is vital for both organic rankings and Google Places rankings.

Video SEO involves leveraging the selling power of video marketing combined with the distribution power of SEO. If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a million. Our Pretoria video SEO service includes the production of high quality promotional videos. We then upload these videos to YouTube, and rank them on the first page of Google. On our video SEO page you can find a more detailed look at the process and samples of our work.

Do you have a negative review or news article that’s showing up on the first page of Google for your business name? Online reputation management (ORM) is similar to search engine domination, except we rank properties for your brand keyword instead of industry related search terms. Since brand terms are far less competitive than product or service related keywords we can fill all 10 of the first page positions with properties owned by you and push the negative press onto page two.

Search engine domination refers to an search engine optimization strategy that leverages all of our other Pretoria local SEO services and more. The purpose of search engine domination is not only to rank your website at the top of page one, but also to push your top competitor down the page. Imagine if the first three results on the page belonged to your business, and another one or two lower down. Every first page position that belongs to you pushes a competitor on to the second page. In addition, since the majority of people have a very limited understanding of SEO, if there are five first page results that relate to your business people will assume that your business is the most reputable. In addition to your website and YouTube videos we can rank Yelp pages, Facebook pages, Twitter profiles, Google+ pages, LinkedIn profiles, business directory listings and the list goes on.

The 7 Secrets to Websites that Sell

From my experience, there are 7 secrets to creating a website that sell.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each business and each website is different, and we like to take a customized approach to SEO campaigns. No cookie-cutter campaigns where your budget is wasted on unnecessary tasks.

SEO boils down to beating your competitors to gain those valuable top 3 rankings. Some industries are super competitive, while other industries are less so.

We always start with a comprehensive audit of a website before we create the plan. This allows us to identify the most critical items that needs to be addressed.

As a guideline, an audit starts at R2 950 once-off, and our campaigns start at R4 999pm.

We put together a custom SEO package for each client based on the Audit results. Tasks that may be included in your custom package include: content creation, web design and development, conversion rate optimization, link building, social media profile creation, local citation building, review generation strategy, on page optimization, off page brand building, marketing automation, Google My Business Optimization.

Your initial custom SEO campaign will be a monthly contract for a specific amount each month, for a set amount of time. The typical SEO campaign usually runs between 3 and 9 months, depending on how much work you need to see improvement. After the initial SEO campaign is complete, you can go month-to-month, usually for a lower amount and reduced scope of work. This second phase is what we consider maintenance mode.

Tasks that may be required on your website usually include: content creation, on-page optimization, structured data creation, title & meta description optimization, custom web design & development, conversion rate optimization, internal link building, and adding of articles.

There are 3 main ways we measure your return on a SEO campaign: rankings for your selected keywords, organic traffic from Google & Bing, and most importantly, how many leads are coming through to your business. We measure and report on your rankings using SEO rank tracking software. Also, we look at your organic search traffic using Google Analytics – meaning we measure how much additional traffic you get strictly from organic (not Google Ads or pay per click) search. Lastly, we measure how many leads are coming into your site from contact forms and phone calls. At the end of day, we know that the real measure of success is sales revenue.

We send out reports every two weeks. These reports will show your rankings for your selected keywords, the traffic to your website as well as the number of leads (conversions) received from your website.

This is a difficult question, as it depends on the number of issues that come up through your Audit.

We typically find that less competitive keywords can show significant improvements in 3 months, while more competitive phrases can take 6 -12 months. This largely depends on how much effort your competition is putting into their SEO campaign.

We make sure to use only methods and techniques that are in line with Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.
