What is SEO?
SEO stands for search engine optimisation and is the process of improving your website slowly over time to achieve increased traffic from search engines. By adjusting the code and content on your website’s pages to target specific keywords, you can improve where your website is ranked in search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing when someone performs a search using those keywords.
Why is high quality SEO important?
To put it simply, there is no point in having a website if people can’t find it and SEO is the most valuable way to drive visitors to your website. This is because all the traffic it generates is FREE! This differs greatly from paid advertising opportunities such as PPC where you pay for every click or number of impressions. Search engine optimisation can be conducted on a much smaller budget than most other digital marketing methods and as such it should be considered your first port of call when you think about advertising your website.
What is considered best SEO Practice?
As with anything that requires optimisation, a scientific process is essential. SEO is no different, and you will struggle to improve your performance in search engines if you don’t take the time to analyze what has and hasn’t worked previously for your website, as well as what is working for your competition.
What is considered best practice is a constantly evolving theory. SEO that was considered good practice a few years ago, such as a strong keyword density and lots of meta keywords, can actually hurt your website if employed today.
Search engines keep the algorithms they use to decide where you rank on their systems closely guarded. Of course this does not stop people testing the platforms to find out what effects their ranking and to what degree. As of this moment there are over 200 factors that people have identified as having an impact on their rankings.
Does my business need SEO?
Every business can benefit from SEO in varying degrees. Just making sure you have no broken links on your website and that your website is mobile friendly can boost your website in search engines. Have you noticed that when searching for something in Google on your mobile phone it says “mobile-friendly” next to those websites which Google considers to be responsive for viewers to read on their phones?
