SEO

So tell me what this SEO is all about

SEO stands for “search engine optimisation.” Essentially, it’s the process of  enhancing the visibility of a website on organic search engine result pages. This effectively helps to generate more unpaid quality traffic to your website and deliver great results for your company in terms of brand awareness and enquiries.  So for example, if you were an SEO company like Cariad Marketing, you would want your website to rank on page one on Google if someone typed in the search: SEO company.

A successful SEO campaign however, goes beyond adding the relevant keywords to a website and hoping for search engines to reward you for the effort. In a nutshell, there are four key areas where an SEO agency can help you with your SEO.

The SEO process

1) Search Accessibility:  The first step in the SEO process is to ensure you have a website that‘s made up of pages with relevant content. It is then important that you give search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo permission to access this content.

2) Search Indexing:  The second important step is to allow for search engines to index your website as this will determine how often the web pages appear on search results. In indexing your web pages, search engines collect and store data from your website to generate results when users conduct a relevant search.

3) Search Appearance: It is quite important to visualize how you would like your site to appear on search results. This helps you create useful and compelling title tags, Meta descriptions (page descriptions), site links and breadcrumb navigation.

4) Search Results: The ultimate goal of most SEO campaigns is to drive targeted traffic to a website and ultimately generate enquiries. With analytical platforms, you are able to ascertain the average position of your keywords and what search queries are generating the most traffic to your site.
