Greetings! I am Yuhan, a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) specialist in Mauritius. I count more than 10 years of experience helping businesses improve their websites for their users and improve their ranking on search engines.
What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
SEO is a set of techniques that favors the improvement of a website in various aspects from simple things like keyword research, review of site architecture to more complex technical audit, image optmisation, core web vitals optimisation and more. The end goal of SEO is to help your website find and rank for the keywords that best describe your product and services.
Does SEO work in Mauritius?
Yes, 100% and the good news is that competition levels are quite low in many industries as many businesses are not doing SEO in Mauritius (which means it is easier to rank). Whether you are in the tourism industry, real estate, e-commerce or you just own a display website, I believe your website should show up when people are searching for your products and services. Below is an example Mauritian website serving Mauritian customers:
HOW TO CHOOSE AN SEO AGENCY/EXPERT?
Good SEO takes time. But an experienced SEO agency or SEO consultant can help you minimise on time (and cost) as they know how search engine algorithms work. It is best to chose an SEO company with a proven track of records.
A good SEO company or agency will:
- analyse and understand your business, its semantic nuances
- work with your marketing team to reach goals together
- audit your website and give you an action plan
- always back recommendations & work according to webmaster guidelines
- give you realistic estimates on keyword ranking & ROI
- provide 100% transparency on the work conducted
- want to know every page on your website and its purpose
- provide reports and ideas to improve the website for users
On the other hand, a bad SEO company will:
- give you guarantees on results
- try to sell you backlinks (you don’t need)
- not work on your site and offer only off-page SEO
- use shady methods to make your website rank fast
- not analyse about your business and industry
- not be transparent about the work being conducted

My SEO expertise case study
Poorly shod shoemaker is acceptable, sometimes. In SEO, it is clearly not an option. Many online advertising agencies in Mauritius are offering ‘SEO services‘. How many of them are ranking for search engine optimization keywords? That’s another story.
If you want to appear in the top results of Google, the best place to search for such services is on Google itself. If a company can appear in the top results for their services, you can presume they are capable of doing the same for you. No self-promotion intended here, but here are the keywords I’m ranking on Google:
- SEO Specialist
- SEO expert Mauritius
- SEO agency Mauritius
- SEO company Mauritius
- SEO Mauritius
- International SEO expert
Google Mauritius is offered in 3 languages; English, French, and Kreole morisien. Being bilingual, I also optimized my website for french speaking searchers. They can find my services using keywords like:
If you are looking to outsource your SEO work to an agency or a consultant, it makes sense to work with someone who is already raking for relevant keywords in your region. Furthermore, the agency or consultant will represent your brand image in search results. It is important you chose someone who works in accordance with Google Webmaster Guidelines.
How much does search engine optimization cost?
It is the very first question I get. I don’t have a fixed or one-off price for my SEO services. I offer custom pricing depending on many factors; like the size of your project. For example, if you are an SME, and want to improve the visibility of your display website, the price will be much less than a multilingual or multi-regional e-commerce store with lots of pages and products.
