Search Engine Optimisation

(aka SEO)


What’s the use of having a website that showcases your product or service in a way that is irresistible to your target audience – if no one can find it in an online search?

Your business remains undiscovered. Website SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) can help tackle this.

What Is Website SEO?

It’s a form of online marketing that focuses on improving your website position in search engine results when someone enters a search query – without having to pay for an ad to get a prominent position. Your website position is important, because the closer it is to the top of the list, the more likely it is to be seen by potential customers!

4 Key Benefits Of SEO

No advertising costs
Website SEO can improve where your website is ranked by helping to drive organic traffic to your site, rather than getting searchers there through paid ads.
Attracts Highly Qualified Leads
Organic traffic is valuable because it brings highly qualified visitors to your website. Searchers are more engaged because they have a very specific intent and are more likely to become customers if your website provides what they want once they get there.
Search engines rate it
A search engine’s job is to provide searchers with the most relevant and trustworthy information it can find in response to a search query, then rank that information in order of usefulness. Steady organic traffic tells search engines that searchers consider a website credible and authoritative, so search engines rank it higher in organic search results because it keeps getting visits (or votes of confidence) from the public.
Builds trust & authority
Search engines aren’t the only ones impressed by organic traffic. Humans are too. Just like word of mouth, searchers tend to trust organic search results more than search results that have been paid for. If your website ranks well organically, it helps establish credibility and trust with your audience. This means it’s likely that more people click on your result to check it out, which in turn helps boost search engine rankings again – and so the cycle snowballs.

How To Improve SEO?
