Keyword density is incredibly important for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Over the years the importance and effect of keyword density have changed drastically. In the Pre Panda era, you could essentially ‘spam’ your webpage with your keyword and your page stood a chance of ranking. Read more
So you’ve employed an SEO Copywriter to start producing blogs for your website in order to boost your website’s traffic, and thus get you more new customers.
Good move; you’re already on the right step to grabbing those top rankings for your keywords on Google!
But how can you tell if the blogger you’ve employed to write your blogs is any good? Well, luckily for you, there are a couple of key benchmarks that will help you tell whether your SEO Copywriter is da bomb, such as whether or not your blogs are uploaded on time, whether the spelling, grammar and punctuation is correct, and whether your copywriter is writing about the type of subjects that will interest your audience.Read more
Are you singing the song yet? If you’re not, you should be! Aretha should be blaring out in your ears as loud as possible. Go on, sing it loudly. Let that woman stare at you.
OK, that’s enough. Don’t get carried away.
Because, difficult as it is to believe, I’m not just writing this blog post as a tribute to the late, great Aretha Franklin. Although I probably should be; she deserves it.
But no, on this occasion, I’m writing about the fact that we, the GrowTraffic dream team, are a group of four women, fighting our corner in a very male dominated world. We’re independent women in SEO. And we love it. Read more
The website is all good to go, the pages are well optimised, the product pictures look great and the E-Commerce shop is waiting for customers to spend their money and generate sales.

But what do you do about keeping your content fresh once the website is launched? Content is King after all, and it’s a huge factor in those all-important SEO rankings that ensure your website comes out on top in the Google search.
Well you plan. That’s what. You plan your content like you plan everything else to stay well organised and on top of your game.

What Is A Blog?
This week’s blog is about guess what? Blogging!
Which kind of makes sense, seeing as I have been writing blogs for Grow Traffic for a few weeks now, and I haven’t really understood the benefits, other than to indulge my love of writing for my favourite SEO company, and get paid for the privilege! Win win I say!
But before we look at the benefits of blogging, who will read your blog, and how to begin if you’ve never ventured in to blogging before but want to get started, we need to look at what actually is a blog? Read more
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m a Words Person. Not a Numbers Person – as my son is keen on reminding me – and rarely even a Pictures Person – if you’re going to stick me in an art gallery, you’re going to have to explain to me what I’m looking at. But give me words – anyone’s words; Shakespeare’s, Duffy’s, Attwood’s, hell, even Val McDermid’s – and I’m in heaven. Read more
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past 5 years, you might have noticed that there’s been a huge explosion in content marketing recently.
OK, that’s a bit of an understatement. Content marketing is everywhere now, and everyone seems to be doing it. (Which is the very reason I hope you’re doing it too, but that’s another story!) Read more
Happy New Year!
Having not written a GT blog for some considerable time, I have now been given the honour of writing our first blog of 2018 – and what an honour that is! I know, you’re jealous. I would be too.

I know, the world and his dog are doing it, just bear with us…we need the keywords! 😉

Well, I’ve had a rather exciting day today, so I thought I’d pen you a quick blog to tell you all about it. I know, I know; you don’t deserve me.
So, what have I been up to that’s been so important? I got a free lunch for one thing, and very nice it was too. Suitably vegetarian. Besides that – and possibly more importantly – I also got an incredibly useful mentoring session on how to make an impact in business. Plus, I met some lovely people too. What more can you ask for on a Wednesday in mid-March? Read more
