Search Engine Optimisation
Search Engine Optimisation is one of the most important parts of web site design, yet it is frequently neglected. A
brilliantly designed, aesthetically pleasing functional website is absolutely no use whatsoever if nobody knows it is
there. Getting your site listed highly with the major search engines under the correct keyphrases and search terms
is of paramount importance to the success of your site.
The Search Engines
Recent research indicates
that the dominant player in the search engine market is Google, facilitating over 80% of all web searches performed
worldwide. It is therefore of paramount importance to get a good listing in their main results section. Other
search engines such as Yahoo! are also important, but most are playing catch-up and are attempting to emulate Google's
success. Our recommended best policy is therefore to optimise your site primarily for Google, and by doing so your
site will automatically be optimised for the rest.
It is not possible to pay to be listed in the main Google search results. The best way to get listed is to make
your website as useful as possible to your potential users. This involves optimising your site's content to provide
maximum useful information, and by having other quality websites recognise this by linking to your site as a vote of
confidence. We are experts in getting quality websites to link to yours in the correct way, so that when Google finds
these links, it will follow them to your site. Google will then find good material on your site that we have
optimised to best describe what your site and company does for your customers, and rank your site accordingly well.
We are experts in site optimisation, and we only utilise optimisation methods that are legal and above board.
Too often in the past companies relied on underhand techniques such as keyword stuffing, doorway pages and mirror
domains, some of which worked for a time, but now are completely unacceptable. The search engines will penalise any
site caught doing so. We employ only legal techniques to site optimisation and the result has been top 10 listings for
all our optimised sites, and in many cases our sites occupy the No.1 position in the search engine results.
We will consult with you to establish the keyphrases that your potential customers are most likely to type into Google.
We will then modify the pages on your website so that they become important for those keyphrases in Google's eyes.
Once your site is optimised, we will then handle placement of incoming links on quality external websites.
Once optimised, results can be expected in a few weeks for an existing
website. However, newly established websites may take appreciably longer, as Google tends to ignore new sites for many
months after it first becomes aware of them. In this case, it is important to start the optimisation process at the
earliest stage possible.
Some engines, including Google and Yahoo, will also accept paid submissions. However these listings appear as
advertisements to the right and above the main search results and are clearly marked as "sponsored links". These
can be effective in some circumstances, particularly if quick results are required, but can also be expensive.
