Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – what is it?

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is a process which allows a website to be ranked higher than other similar websites in relevant search result lists within a search engine.  For example, if you have a Party Supply Shop based in Castle Hill, it would be ideal that your website appears on the first page of Google search results when people search using terms such as “Castle Hill party supplies” or similar.

Search engines like Google use a complex set of rules (indexing process) to read the design and content of your website and determine where it should appear on a search results list.  Search engine optimisation (SEO) uses a variety of techniques to ensure search engines (eg. Google) recognise the website as most relevant for particular search terms, thereby ranking the website higher than others on the search results list.

As you know from your own internet searches, potential customers are only likely to view the first few pages of results, often only the first page, so effective search engine optimisation (SEO) is essential for any business with a website.

If you want people to see your website without paying a daily rate or “cost per click” to the search engine to appear in the sponsored advertisements (eg. Google AdWords), you need to have your website search engine optimised.

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the most efficient and cost effective way to improve your websites’ “natural” or “organic” or “unpaid” internet ranking.  Search engine optimisation (SEO) will allow your website to be viewed by more people, specifically by people who are searching for your services.
