search engine optimisation
what is SEO?
With many millions of websites on the internet, how will yours be found?
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of ensuring a website can be easily found and indexed by search engines.
This typically involves researching relevant keywords that your customers will search for, and ensuring they are included in
your website text. Sounds simple? If you want to do some DIY SEO then this is the
most important advice. Just don't go over the top and stuff every sentence with
keywords - a turn-off for both customer and search engines.
Search engines will favour a website which has plenty of links to it from other websites. Link Building is the process of getting
other sites to link in to your website. We don't offer this as a separate service but we can offer a few suggestions of places where you can get
links in to your site:
- Add links to your website from forums, facebook pages and blogs
- Use local directories, such as sheffield.org.uk for the Sheffield area,
or search for directories in your area
- Trade Organisations and suppliers may be able to offer you a link
- Offer to swap links with friends and similar but non-competing websites
Once your website has been created, it needs to be 'hosted' so that it is always available,
and people anywhere in the world can view it via their web browser.
We offer all types of website hosting for both new and existing websites, priced from £50 per year.
If you would like to discuss moving your website from another host, please contact us.
