    I would be very careful when choosing the so called SEO expert, they can do your website more harm than good, un-like plumbers, roofers, etc they are regulated. So I’ve come to the conclusion no one really knows what they are talking about a when it comes to SEO unless you work for Google.

    The best SEO is to make sure your website reads well and is relevant to what you do, keep it fresh with updates every week or so and make sure the URLs for each page read as english not "tech gobbldegook"

    Most SEO companies just work on getting masses of links to your site, this is useful but can easily backfire if google spots link farming, far better to get people to link to you because they want to,

    It's why I don't offer SEO work, mostly it just needs good content and regular updates.

    A good SEO person will not just link farm but make sensible suggestions as to what language on your site might need changes.

    Just briefly gone through your website, there is loads of improvements that can be made
    for example on one of your pages titled emergency plumbers leads you only mention the word "emergency" twice, the norm for key word density is 2 to 3%

    can you edit the content on your site or do you have a web developer do it for you?

    I would migrate your existing website into say wordpress, you can then create pages for your target areas around leeds.
