SEO: Search Engine Optimisation
What it is… You may be aware of the term SEO – Search Engine Optimisation – which applies to the structure, code and content of your website plus its ‘popularity’. In addition, search engine giant Google uses algorithms to rank websites by number and quality of incoming links, visitor numbers and behaviours, e.g. ‘stickiness’.
Why it’s important... Millions of websites are vying for attention. You need to be be found in top search results for relevant keywords. There have been many attempts to find short-cuts to the top of search engine results and Google constantly strives to identify and punish these sites. The best long term solution is to be honest with yourself and your target audience. We can help you write content for your website. This practice is usually referred to as Search Engine Optimisation or SEO.
