A1 SEO Edinburgh's Story

Our approach is focused entirely on transparency. We take great pride in educating our partners about the benefits of SEO – something this is often wrongly shrouded in mystery. From day one, we want our partners to understand our processs and how this will have a long-lasting impact on their businesses.

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

After some success, small businesses created a demand for time on more complex (and paid😁) marketing activities. Due to demand, the business transformed into another generic 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 other jack of all trades type digital agencies offering a wide range of services with only average knowledge in everything.

During these early years the team became more and more fixated with SEO over all other digital marketing channels.

Late in 2016, the company moved all non-SEO work over to trusted niche specialists to focus purely on SEO. This is where the team’s passion lies.

It just so happened that this pivot happened during an exciting time of change for the SEO industry. Google released a handful of exciting updates that changed the SEO industry completely. With our newfound focus, the team continued to deliver results and built up processes for consistently influencing website’s rankings with Google and other search engines.

In 2019, the business rebranded from GMS Digital to A1 SEO Edinburgh to reflect our focus on search engine marketing. At this stage, 94% of our business was SEO and PPC, the other 6% being development projects that shared close synergy with SEO projects.

We are entirely dedicated to championing SEO within Edinburgh’s business community. With understanding passed on from experienced industry professionals come solid, integrated marketing strategies that help businesses dominate their niche.
