Getting to know SEO

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 in SEO No Comments

With SEO being such an integral part of any company’s online marketing strategy, it’s important for even small businesses to have a basic understanding of how search engine optimisation works.

So what is SEO?

Search engine optimisation is the process of ensuring that your website and social media accounts are visible to potential clients and customers. In this digital age, search engines are most people’s first port of call when they are looking for any service or product, they tend to search for words associated with that particular service – a person in Essex who needs a tap fixed is likely to search ‘Essex plumbers’, for example. If they need the tap fixed right away, they might search ‘emergency plumbers in Essex’. Implementing SEO simply means that when writing social media posts, blog posts and website content, a smart plumbing company includes the keywords ‘Essex’, ‘plumbers’ and ‘emergency’. That way, their website appears in potential customers’ search results, increasing the chances of business.

Not just website content

SEO also applies to image searches and video searches, and improves a site’s organic, or unpaid, results. In other words, it’s free marketing. All businesses need to do is make sure their content is in line with what their audience will search for!
