The inner-south of Melbourne offers plenty of choice when it comes to SEO agencies, from large advertising companies to digital startups. Along Chapel Street, there are several SEO companies stretching from South Yarra to Prahran, including our digital agency, Digital360. In total, there are over 30 digital agencies with SEO and digital capabilities.

The St Kilda Road corridor is also home to a large number of digital providers, including large international agencies, who have search marketing advice and delivery services available for large brands. However, with almost 60 companies to choose from in the area, there is an SEO agency for any size and budget.

Cremorne and Richmond

Richmond and Cremorne are another SEO and digital agency hotspot. From Swan Street to the Yarra River, there is plenty of search marketing expertise available for a range of businesses. The inner-east is a hub for SEO agencies that are often creatively driven, suited for small-to-medium sized businesses with consumer products.

In Cremorne, there are over 30 digital agencies and SEO specialists, providing plenty of choice within a small area. In wider Richmond, there are an additional 40 SEO providers. The combined total means there are almost 70 providers available, giving your business more than enough choice when deciding on an SEO partner.

Melbourne's CBD and South Melbourne

SEO agencies in Melbourne CBD

There is a range of SEO companies in Melbourne’s CBD, providing expert advice at a central location. When it comes to choosing an SEO agency in the CBD, the challenging isn't finding an agency – it's narrowing down a selection from the vast number of providers. In the city, there are over 150 digital agencies, many of which have SEO listed as a capability. South Melbourne meanwhile is home to almost 50 providers.

Most of these companies are flexible enough to deliver a range of digital marketing services beyond SEO, such as web development, online advertising or content strategy. If you work in or close to the city, an SEO agency in the Melbourne CBD or South Melbourne is a convenient option.

Fitzroy and Collingwood

Melbourne’s inner-north is home to niche creative agencies and SEO providers as well as international consultancies, such as Accenture Interactive. While there are fewer SEO agencies in the area compared to locations such as the CBD, Richmond and South Melbourne, there are still over 30 providers.

A perk of this location is that visitors can schedule a meeting at the office – or at any of nearby cafes that make Melbourne famous for its coffee. The number 12 and number 86 tram lines are available if public transport is a suitable transport option.

Surrounding suburbs

There are plenty of smaller SEO providers further out of Melbourne. These agencies tend to be lower cost digital providers and can be an option for small businesses on a budget. However, be wary of cheaper providers. Entrusting your business to a low-cost agency could risk your SEO performance, and increase the likelihood of your website being filled with black hat SEO tactics.

Our verdict

There are many options when it comes to SEO companies in Melbourne. Now you have an idea of where the main digital marketing hubs are in Melbourne, you can schedule a meeting with a convenient SEO provider.

But remember to do your research. Ask questions and get the right answers – you don’t want to end up after your first three months with an SEO agency wondering why your business is not seeing the promised results.
