SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

When you consider that over 80% of buyers start their research with an online search, you’ll understand why it’s so important that the content of your website is well optimised (or SEO’d, as we call it).

Not sure if you’re well optimised?

We’ll optimise your website to help people find you online

Search engines (like Google) are often the first port of call for the majority of people researching a purchase – for both business and personal purchases. Keeping up with the latest developments in SEO while running a business is tricky. Luckily, it’s what we do, so we’ll happily take the task off your hands. We’ll research keywords and update your website content, so that when people search for what you do, you’re optimised to be found in the search results.

RESEARCH

Keyword research is vital. Yes, it identifies the phrases and terms that are key to your business, but it also helps you understand what your customers might be searching for. Once you know that, your marketing becomes that bit easier.

OPTIMISE

Well optimised website content will always get the best results. But it has to be done well and needs to include updating page titles, accurate meta descriptions, adding alt tags to images and using appropriate sub headings.

CREATE NEW CONTENT

If you search the internet you’re probably hoping to find, learn, solve or buy something. Search engines look for website content that will satisfy those searches so writing useful, thorough content that helps, will only improve your rankings.

BACKLINKS

A backlink is made when one website links to another. Backlinks can be great for SEO, as search engines will see the connection as a positive ‘thumbs up’. Be aware of your audience and only create links to appropriate and useful content.

Have you heard about Google’s RankBrain? Here’s why you need to take it into account for your search engine optimisation. What is RankBrain?

What are keywords and why are they important?

Put simply, keywords or key phrases, are what people are searching for in search engines. As a business, they’re important because you want to come up in search engines when people search for the keywords or phrases that are relevant to your products or services. To stand a chance of being near the top of the results, you need to include those words and phrases in your website.
