Search Engine Optimisation is an important tool in the online marketing tool kit for any business. Understanding how Google works and how to create, publish and structure your content and presence online can make the difference between a successful business and one that fails.

This Presentation aims to share some simple SEO tips that we have learnt at Threesides marketing that we use with our clients on a weekly basis. The presentation was originally made to 23 business owners as part of the ACT Digital Enterprise Training Workshop Series in canberra at the Canberra Business Council. It was presented by Todd Wright.

What's the most important less from this presentation - It's that "good SEO is actually the outcome of a series of marketing activities that are designed to find and keep customers online".

Set your objectives, resource your activities and start today.

Enjoy - Todd.
