What is SEO?
SEO is an acronym that stands for Search Engine Optimisation, which is the combination of multiple techniques with the overall aim of increasing the amount of relevant organic traffic to a website. This is achieved through higher ranking positions in the search engine results, for the highest volume keywords. Successful search engine optimisation will lead to improved conversion rates and a higher ROI. In order to optimise your website correctly for search, it is vitally important to understand how search engines work and which factors are the most important, when it comes to ensuring that your website outranks your competitors.
How does SEO work?
Search Engine Optimisation can be broken down into two distinct categories, on-site and off-site:
As the name suggests, on-site SEO (or on-page SEO) is the process of optimising the content and infrastructure of the pages on your website. This can include both the content and HTML code of each page, as well as templated content that appears in the header, footer or sidebar. Typically on-site SEO is improved through optimisation for relevant, high volume keywords as well as creating new and interesting content.
Off-site SEO (or off-page SEO) is all about how your website is currently referred to on external websites and other online sources. Off-Site SEO is commonly improved by building high quality, relevant backlinks to your website because links serve as the strongest indicator of quality and relevancy to the search engines. A website with a higher number of quality and relevant backlinks from a well-respected domain will appear higher in the search results.
Why Does SEO Matter in 2023?
The modern age has created a civilisation that has never been more connected, with a worldwide population that is increasingly using search engines to find answers and solutions, as well as products, services and experiences. SEO is not about trying to cheat the search engines, it is instead about ensuring that your pages are optimised in order to target specific, highly relevant keywords and queries that your customers are using to find your products and services. Effective SEO can make the difference between ranking on the 1st page of the search results vs the 2nd page. If you are uncertain as to the benefit of 1st page rankings, consider the fact that only 10% of people ever look beyond the 1st page of the search results. If you are not ranking on the 1st page, you are losing out on a wealth of potential business. It is therefore essential to ensure that SEO is carried out for your website, through the creation of optimised, well-written and high value content, as well as authoritative external backlinks. Without SEO, customers won’t be able to find your site.
Factors that Influence SEO
Content Quality & Relevancy
Content is an incredibly important factor to consider in terms of SEO because it forms the basis of why a customer should want to visit your website and why the search engines should consider your site as the best answer to the search query. It is vital that your content is not only high in quality (unique, well-written, valuable and interesting), it also needs to be highly relevant.
Backlinks are an indication of the popularity of your website and search engines will give more credit to websites that have a higher number of high quality backlinks, rewarding those websites with higher search engine ranking positions. It is important to remember that the quality of the external backlinks offer the real value in terms of SEO, rather than the total number.
Page speed is a vital factor when it comes to SEO, with Google suggesting that the speed of a website is considered as one of the key signals used by its ranking algorithm. Furthermore, poor page speed will result in an unsatisfactory user experience and a dissatisfied potential customer. A fast website with a load of time of just a few seconds will satisfy both your users and the search engines alike. We specialise in delivering high speed scores and passing Core Web Vitals tests.
Website security has never been more important, with secure certificates (SSL) acting as a powerful trust signal to the search engines that your site can be trusted above other competitors.
Local is the process of making your site very relevant for local geographical searches, so that you come up in map results or when a location is used as a keyword. Our local SEO strategy relies on Google’s NAP directive – Name, Address and Phone Number – ensuring that these are standardized across all online properties. AS part of your local SEO strategy we will manage and optimise your Google My Business profile and ensure you appear in other powerful business directories as well as carry out local linkbuilding.
If your business or corporation is global is extremely important to differentiate the content across multiple websites in a number of ways including domain strategy, H Ref Lang tags and language considerations. Doing this will ensure you fall foul of Google’s anti-duplicate content algorithms.
