SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. It is how you increase the number and quality of visitors to your website by improving rankings in the search engine results. Algorithmic search results (organic results) appear directly below the paid ads on the results page. Websites that appear on the first page of Google are the most likely to get clicked on. FACT. And the higher up the page the more traffic they will receive. If your business isn’t visible online, you are losing trade to the companies that are.
A digital marketing agency can analyse your website and carry out onsite SEO to optimise your website and its content to improve its relevancy. Typically, this could include carrying out keyword research which involves analysing the types of words used by customers to find services. This can then be integrated into your website. There is also technical auditing, this will investigate whether the website can be indexed, is geo-targeted and free from mistakes or user barriers. Onsite optimisation will improve the website structure and navigation as well as the relevancy of the content to prioritise key information.
