Site Design, Keyword Placement & Link Relevancy
We make sure that a website is or has been developed in such a way that it will be easily discovered by the major search engines and that it's content will be thoroughly mapped and indexed to keywords and phrases that potential visitors use, based on keyword research, when searching for products or services that the site offers. In this way we can optimise or fine tune the site's pages to a particular keyword, phrase or group of keywords/phrases.
On a web page, the most important keywords and phrases are best placed in:
Throughout body text
H1 tag (main heading)
H2 and H3 tags (sub headings)
ALT attribute (if appropriate)
Within anchor links
Meta description tag
Building up links from authority & well-trusted websites with relevant content is important for improving a site's search engine rankings, in particular for the most used search engine, Google. Moreover, relevant keyword use in the anchor text of links (both on-site & off-site) is also important for SEO, as well as for usability and accessibility. Search engines pay a lot of attention to the keywords surrounding links too, so optimising these is also recommended.
When we are satisfied with the design, layout, navigation, content, page titles and meta tags, heading tags, ALT attributes, link anchor text, web page accessibility and site architecture; we begin the process of submitting a website to the top general directories, as well as local and industry specific directories.
Bookmarking sites, social media sites, networking sites, blogs, review sites, forums and press release sites are other powerful sources for driving traffic and we recommmend these in a link building strategy. This will all help in the build up of valuable, relevant, researched and well chosen links that will help a site improve its search engine rankings and increase its traffic.For local search, we set-up and optimise a business's profile in Google+ Local, Yahoo Local and Bing Local. We also set up business profiles in various local review sites and local directories to boost external citations (mentions of company name, address and telephone number).
Ecommerce Site Promotion
For ecommerce sites we create, optimise, submit and manage a data feed of the store's products to Google Merchant Centre (Shopping). We also set up profiles in various product review sites and shopping directories.
We have experience in setting up, optimising and managing Google Adwords and Bing Ads campaigns. We recommend these for additional visibility in the search engine results pages and for driving additional traffic to your web properties. Moreover, these campaigns can come in handy in identifying which keyword phrases are driving conversions so that these phrases can be better optimised on your web properties for increased organic visibility.
Additionally we recommend Google's Display Network for reaching your target audience on websites relevant to your own i.e. promoting your business to users based on where they 'hang out' as opposed to what they may be searching for. We also highly recommend Google's Remarketing solutions which targets people who have already visited your website or any particular page on your website.
If you already have a website, then you may be interested in our SEO evaluation (audit) service. This entails a thorough analysis of your existing site's search engine optimisation strengths and weaknesses. Upon completing the evaluation, we report our findings to you together with any recommendations for improvement.
