SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) refers to the process of acquiring free web traffic from search engines, such as Google and Bing. Unlike pay-per-click, SEO is not a form of advertising. Rather, it is an optimisation of key elements of your website, in alignment with best practice; usability and search engine preferences. Good SEO results in valuable keywords ranking highly on the results pages of search engines. The higher you rank, the more traffic you can expect – and more quality traffic means more sales.
Websites that have particular technical characteristics, will send positive signals to search engines that crawl them. Technical SEO is the process of auditing, optimising and regularly reviewing these characteristics. Elements such as website speed, mobile friendliness and website security all play a key role, so good SEO goes hand in hand with good user experience.
Web content (text, images, videos etc) plays a huge part in how well a site performs in organic search. It is vital that every page on your site is packed with useful, informative content, that is genuinely helpful to your potential customers. It should exude your expertise, and provide users with information within their purchasing journey that they can trust. Such elements are critical to search engine success.
Search engines care about what is happening off your website, as well as on it. Elements such as which websites link back to or mention yours, send significant signals to Google on authority and trust. Content marketing and digital PR are two effective strategies used to build such signals. It’s vital you are being linked to and talked about on other relevant websites. Gone are the days when quantity prevailed over quality, the game has changed. In 2019 the key to success is being linked to and mentioned on high authority sites. Not only will this positively influence your keyword rankings, but your presence on the web will be bolstering your brand recognition.
