LiveHire is a talent technology company focusing on recruiting decision makers for mid-sized to large companies.

LiveHire match people and employers across entire careers and whole-of-organisation. LiveHire competes with big names in the online talent space including Seek, Uwork, PageUp and Indeed. LiveHire launched on the ASX in May 2016. Higher Ranking commenced search engine optimisation (SEO) work with them in March 2016.


  • Geographical spread – the LiveHire team are based in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne;
  • The existing website was built in a .NET environment, and did not have a Content Management System (CMS). This presented significant technical difficulties in terms of SEO;
  • There was significant pressure on us to boost leads and revenue immediately due to the ASX launch.

“ I have loved working with Higher Ranking over the years as we have grown from a small startup to a large publicly listed startup. You have always been on point with advice, and very quick to pivot focus and strategy as the business grows and evolves from hundreds of visitors to millions. The clarity of strategy and frequency of reporting has always been a huge benefit and stress relief to know work continues constantly behind the scenes and we are getting the results we set out for. I have no hesitation in recommending Higher Ranking to any sized business looking to dominate online search and grow their traffic, user base, and customers progressively.”


Enter Higher Ranking

After meeting with the LiveHire team both in person and via Skype, we developed a clear understanding of their issues, objectives and priorities. We then recommended developing and implementing an SEO Program (incorporating Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics) that provided the following:

Client Feedback

We deliberately limit our client base to ensure our clients get hands-on, tailored solutions which blow them (and our bigger competitors) away. We prioritise client calls and emails, and respond asap. In short, we’re there when you need us. But we pack a big punch—we have the technical know-how and experience to grow with you as your needs evolve. We can provide an end-to-end service, or bolt onto your existing internal or agency activities.
