Should My Web Designer Understand SEO?

By | Blog, Content Marketing, SEO, User experience, Web Design | No Comments

Once upon a time, web design and SEO used to be one discipline. They essentially grew out of the same place and, even now, the two skillsets are intrinsically linked.

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!

Happy International Women’s Day, From GT

By | Blog, Thoughts | One Comment

When you do Content Marketing for a business, for the purposes of SEO, one of the first things you do is draw up a content calendar. You match up what dates are going to be coming up in the year that you can write a blog post about. Some might be more relevant than others. Some might be very tenuous indeed.

However, if you can link what you do to a calendar date – something that people are already going to be talking about; something that people will already be searching for online – then it’s beneficial for your website. More people already looking for the type of content you’re writing, ergo more visitors back to your website. It ain’t rocket science.

By | Blog, Guest Post | No Comments

In the digital era, it is important to consider what tools and channels to use for achieving the set goals. They will, after all, determine the effectiveness of your marketing strategy. You need to make smart choices that will yield the best results.

When it comes to choosing the best digital marketing tools, it is hard to avoid the purported rivals — SEO (search engine optimisation) or content marketing.

This infographic by Serpwatch shows that SEO builds a strong case, with statistics showing that more than 40% of business revenue is captured by organic traffic. Content marketing, however, is not far behind. It helps businesses to get more leads through blogging.

How Do I Write SEO Web Copy For Voice Search?

By | Blog, Content Marketing, SEO | No Comments

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.

The Top Ten Social Media Channels For 2019

Which Social Media Platform Should I Use In 2019 To Improve My Rankings?

By | Blog, Social Media Marketing | No Comments

Social media. It’s a rum old thing, ain’t it?!

It seems that every day there’s a new platform introduced, one bought out by someone else, one dropping off the radar.

Just as soon as you’ve got your head around one social media platform, it turns out that its no longer down wiv da kids, and they’ve all moved somewhere else anyway. There’s just you and your Nan left, liking each other’s cat videos.

Or, at least, as a thirty-something with a nine year old son, that’s how I feel! I’ve no sooner figured out one social media channel he’s using, and he’s lost interest in that one and has moved on to something completely new.

By | Google, Search Engines | No Comments

Every now and then there is a post about search which should make every SEO consultant stand up and take notice. Recently, Distilled’s Will Critchlow created one such piece of content when he created a Whiteboard Friday for Moz, about the lessons he learned from interviewing Google’s John Mueller.

The Whiteboard Friday covers a range of topics including Domain Authority, subdomains vs subfolders and a take on using noindex/nofollow. Here’s my roundup and thoughts based on the piece:

John Mueller is the Senior Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google and he’s always prepared to be super helpful when it comes to questions about how Google is treating things differently from a technical SEO perspective.

Human Rights

Grow Traffic Supports Human Rights Day

By | Blog | No Comments

Monday 10th December saw the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, (UDHR), a day that is symbolically marked around the globe as Human Rights Day.

Sadly, this event was largely ignored in the U.K.

The media has been completely focused on Brexit, and the announcement of the meaningful vote’ in parliament being postponed added fuel to this on going political debate, meaning Human Rights Day, a day to celebrate our rights and privileges we are endowed with just for being human, was overlooked.

Not here though, not at Grow Traffic.

We are proud to support the launch of a new website HumanRightsExplained.net , a website that has been designed to offer a no nonsense guide to the somewhat complex world of human rights and present a tool for education to be used by anybody wanting to improve their knowledge around this subject.
