The importance of being found on the web cannot be overstated as consumers are increasingly turning to the internet as their primary method of research during their buying cycle. It's a safe bet that if they can't find you online then they'll find your competition.
Website search engine optimization (SEO) is the most important aspect of a successful web campaign and should not be mistaken for Search Engine Marketing (SEM) that focuses on pay-per-click advertising for traffic building.
Search engine optimization is the process of improving the visibility and accessibility of a website on the search engine result pages or (SERPs) and focuses primarily on return on investment (organic SEO) whilst trying to achieve top ranking without using paid means of achieving top in search engines.
The search engines are constantly evolving and changing and it takes a large investment of time for our team to keep abreast of how to take full advantage of their services and operations. Our SEO specialists consider how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience.
Our formally qualified website developers and designers optimize our websites during the development and design process making them search engine friendly (a term often used in the industry) which involves page layout design, how content and information is read or labeled.
Search engine optimization is an ongoing and in reality a never ending process if you are serious about always staying ahead of your competition on the search engine result pages (SERPs). Predicting when Google will visit your website, especially as a start up, and how it's going to process, index and interpret your website's content is almost impossible - so a great ranking on Google can take months of monitoring and tweaking.
As the majority of our customers prefer to manage the content of their websites themselves [ by way of a content management system ] and that the quality of website's content is key to successful SEO efforts it is important that we give them the right advice, training and tools to manage much of their website's SEO themselves.
