Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Search Engine Optimisation is a vital component of any website. There are several factors used to improve the ranking of a website and these include:

  • Metadata is carefully thought out.
  • Key phrases in title, h1, h2 and h3 tags. Search engines give far more weight to these areas.
  •  The website contains a proportion of links to and from other websites. 
  • The content of the site is meaningful. Where applicable alternative content is provided for areas such as images, flash content etc.
  •  Use of style sheets to separate style from content, keeping the mark-up clean, clear and content specific.
  • Try to use words in the title tag that links on the page, if there are multiple occurrences of a word on a page it will be rated higher
  •  Make links to other pages on the site containing similar content. 
  • Images to include alt tag descriptions
  • The website uses title tags on text links ( like alt tags on images)
  • Addition of individual page title tags
  • Addition of a site map listing the services by categories and sub categories– this could be a hidden page that we just submit to the free search engines.
