What Is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation, which can be explained as the process that is involved in increasing a website’s organic search presence on the search engines.
What Processes Are Involved In SEO?
The fundermental aims of SEO are:
- Quality of traffic. A website needs quality traffic in order to be sucsessful on the Internet. Quality traffic can be deemed as people visiting your website because they are looking for a product or service that is listed on the website
- Quantity of traffic. This is a way of increasing the number of people visiting a website
- Organic results. Organic results are the free listings seen on the search engines as opossed to the adverts
Google has a software bot called Google Spider, this spider is sent out frequently to crawl web pages on the search engine to collect data. The data it gathers is ran through a multitude of algorithms, these algorithms determine the search engine index. Once this process has been completed the web page will be placed on the index, and matched to end user related search queries.

This process entails a thorough audit of the web pages presented to us, to make sure they adhere to the search engine guidelines. Once the audit has been performed we can then fix the problems that have arisen, or enhance the efforts that have already been made. During this process we will also research the best keywords to implement in the websites copy, these keywords will be researched with an outcome of pointing high quality traffic to the website, in turn helping the business convert traffic to the website successfully.
Other On Page Optimisation Services:

The biggest off page optimisation service we provide is link building. Outbound links are thought of by the search engines as trust values, they rank a website higher in the SERPS if they have high quality links pointing to them, this is called domain authority. Search engines find these links via a Spider bot, this bot is continually checking for site architecture changes.
Linking lets search engines determine how other web pages are linking, and whether the links are subject related. By utilizing link building, we can help a website achieve higher page rankings on the search engines for its chosen keywords. As an SEO company in the UK, all link building campaigns are built to your specific requirements.

Google Fred was released in March, 2017. This update was developed to combat low quality content web pages, that have been designed to give a reader no value.
The Hummingbird update was implemented in August, 2013. This update helps to translate semantic search. For example, if a searcher on Google is looking for a plumber, the search engine will list a set of local plumbers, enabaling the searcher to contact either one of the plumbers listed. Rather than unrelated data, the searcher is not looking for.
Launched July 2014, the Google Pigeon update is a local search update, which provides more accurate results. Google has said that this update improves its distance and location result framework.
RankBrain, released on October 26, 2015, is a Google update that uses a machine learning artificial intelligence system to help process its search results. RankBrain is reported to be part of the core of the Hummingbird algorithm.
The Possum update released September 01, 2016, is an update designed to help businesses that fall just outside of a city to rank better on Google Local Business.
The BERT update released in October 2019, impacts 10% of websites on the Google search engine. Bert is an update to help people who are searching on Google enter a more natural search term as opposed to a robot sentence. For example; where “for” and “to” are an important part of the search. The BERT algorithm (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) is an intelligent learning algorithm configured to a more natural language output. It helps machines understand what natural human sentences mean, thus the importance for well written websites.
The Panda update, February 2011, was introduced to lower the rank of low quality sites – and place higher-quality sites higher in the listings. Panda checks website content, making sure the content is not of low quality. At the time Panda was introduced, the Internet was abundant in content farms. If a website recieves a Panda penalty for low-quality content and wants to recover, the website owner should revamp the poor content with new high-quality content.
Google Penguin was introduced in April 2012, to decrease the low-quality sites again. Penguin will penalize websites that violate Google’s Webmaster Guidelines by using unethical “black hat” SEO to include hidden text, link farms, and keyword stuffing.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is paramount in determining which websites you currently see high in the SERPS. The websites on page two of the search engines will recieve much less traffic than of those websites on page one. One of the reasons for this is because your prospects do not have the time to search lots of websites. So why would you want your website on page two of Google?
It is a fact that if your website cannot be found on Google, it is costing you money month in month out. You are effectivly giving your competitors that business.
To gain high rankings on the search engines, including Google, the website in question needs to be SEO’d to align with the search engine guidelines. A well optimised website will return an increase in revenue, and online presence.
To gain higher rankings on the search engines, you need the assistance of a SEO consultant.
WordPress SEO Company
Why is WordPress and WooCommerce the preferred SEO platform?
The WordPress platform is ahead of the competition, with paramount on page SEO elements, to include:
- Coherent HTML markup — WordPress is mostly coded in PHP, however its HTML pages are easily understood by the search engines.
- Permalinks that are SEO friendly — WordPress have coded its platform to allow bespoke permalinks to be added, this means pages and posts can have permanent URLs created that will be present for years to come, thus creating a hyperlink that is less suspectable to link rot.
- H headings — The H heading are used to tell the search engines what your content is about, this can be classified as one of the most important factors of SEO. WordPress lets you configure the H tags without having to implement any coding.
- Easy content creation — Content such as text, videos and images are very straightforward to add to the website, thanks to the simple to use WordPress CMS solution.
- Optimized images — Another important SEO configuration is being able to add ALT tags, description, and more, this lets the owner of the website describe the image or what the image is representing, thus creating a more user friendly website for people who are visually impaired, and use screen readers when browsing the Internet.
- Optimized for mobile – Due to the massive increase of web page viewing on mobile devices WordPress is optimized for mobile as standard.
- Social media sharing – WordPress allows you to add share buttons to your website so you can easly share content on the social media platforms, you can add a social media feed, and you can automate social media campaigns.
These WordPress SEO features are all standard in the core product (apart from social media sharing). Further to the standard features, there are a lot of aftermarket products that can be installed to the WordPress platform to help improve WordPress SEO campaigns.
