When I started out in SEO one things we SEOs knew for certain was the experience of the user on a website had very little to do with the ability of a website to rank in a search engine. Fast forward too many years to mention and user experience or UX, is important for SEO and that importance is growing. So what do you need to consider when how important UX is for SEO?Read More
So, you’re wondering if SEO can help your business? Well, rest assured, you’re not the only one! Every business, both big and small are aiming for a successful online presence, and without an effective digital marketing strategy that includes SEO, your business is likely to be left behind.Read More
If you’re a business owner or a marketer thinking about working with a blogger you need to be sure you ask the right questions before hiring them so you can ensure you’ve got the right person for your blog. But what should you ask a blogger before you start working with them so you can be confident they’ve got what it takes?
After all, you can’t be optimising websites for SEO without those websites being built first. And you can’t be building websites with no concern for how they will perform once they’ve been set live (or you shouldn’t be, anyway).
And that’s still as true now as it ever was. So, in answer to the question ‘does my web designer need to understand SEO?’, the answer is, most definitely, yes. Of course they do. It’s blinking obvious that they need to!Read More
I don’t remember when I first heard the word blog or blogging, however, I do remember back then it was a ‘weblog’ before it was truncated to blog and I remember it was something that people did in their spare time and was something of questionable value.

Most people tend to lump SEO together, however, as a marketing tactic, search engine optimisation can be broken out into further subdivisions and this can make it difficult for business owners and marketing managers to understand. Just as you’ll appreciate there are differences between a freelance SEO, SEO consultancies and SEO Agencies, the same is true between SEO agencies. No SEO agency is born equally.
Can you remember when search engines first arrived, way back in the 90s?
Obviously, if you’re one of today’s modern millennials, this event will not even have registered on your radar – you were probably still in nappies back in the 90s.
However, for those of us who are slightly older (should we say 30-something, to be kind?), the arrival of the first search engines was an important step. For those of us who later went on to become SEOs, it was a seminal moment. Well, it would have been, if we’d been paying attention at the time.Read More
As a business owner in the information age, you probably utilize a variety of digital marketing channels to help you grow your brand.
SEO or search engine optimisation is the practice of impacting a website’s ranking in SERPs to try to increase qualified traffic to a relevant page whereas web design is the process of creating a design that can then be turned into a website. On the face of it these are two very different types of activity, however, in reality, the two are so intertwined that every web designer should be highly literate in SEO and every SEO consultant should have a strong understanding of UX and design.
So you probably want to get more traffic to your website and increasing your rankings in Google is going to be one of the first places to start. If your business has been around for virtually any length of time, it’s more than likely that you already have some kind of website and that website probably already has had some search engine optimisation carried out on it and perhaps had some offsite work carried out as well. The thing is you’re going to want an expert in search engine optimisation to work on your website if you really want it to rank effectively and generate traffic through search.
I know this sounds like a trick question, but trust me, it isn’t.

Like many people, I got into SEO by accident, but that was a long time ago and SEO was a brave new world that most people had never heard of, let alone thought they knew anything about. The market we find ourselves in these days is much more mature, competitive and just about every man and their dog seem to argue they know how to do SEO. So how do you choose an SEO agency?Read More

Most people who have had some kind of experience with digital marketing over the ten or fifteen years have probably heard of Click Through Rate (CTR), but most people would equate it to Pay Per Click search marketing such as Google Ads rather than with SEO. However, SEO consultants take organic click through rate very seriously and you should too. This is why. Read More
