  • To start, let’s spend a couple of minutes looking at what SEO is
  • The Organic results Traditionally, two sections to a search engine. Paid and unpaid Not talking about PPC today. This section, where usually 70-80% of people click. Will see tourism example throughout - can all relate to it.
  • People trust sites at top of Google SEO is an industry levellerYou can compete internationally in competitive markets and win Pull NOT Push
  • Spiders = software. Seek out content for the index. Jump from link to link How does it decide what to rank where? Two main keywords to remember = RELEVANCE & IMPORTANCE
  • Keywords on pages - headings, copy Behind the scenes - titles, meta data Gets you into the game.
  • Gets you to the top of the pile. Popularity contest That’s it. SEO in a nutshell. Proving relevance and then importance ranks you above the next site
  • How do we make sure our on-site SEO (i.e. the SEO work on our actual website) is up to scratch? Start with the basics, and that’s making sure you are targeting the right keywords.
  • Tip 1 is all about choosing keywords Big mistake we see - wrong keywords are chosenBased on assumption
  • Stick ‘keyword tool’ into Google. First result. You do need a Google Account to access this these days.
  • Tip 2 is about using keywords. Poor keyword use is a big issues Duplication of keywords across pages (cannibalisation) is a problem
  • Page title. Meta description. URL. All visible in Google Need keywords in there (emboldened) and good sales messages to entice the click.

  • Tip 3 is about creating content. Great content COntent can be blog posts, news articles, videos, images, guides, whitepapers, etc.
