Web Designers And SEO

In the last couple of weeks I have had several meetings with website designers. What I found out shocked and surprised me. They know next to nothing about getting your website ranked highly in the search engines! Now don't get me wrong, the website designers I met were to a man really nice, pleasant creative people. The websites that they had created looked wonderful. Some of the websites that they showed me or I checked out when I looked through their portfolio should be award winning from a design point of view. The problems however started to rear their heads when I asked the most basic questions about search engine optimisation. Nothing complicated, technical or difficult- just the very basic principles of search engine optimisation. None of them had the first clue about how to get a website to rank highly in Google and for the most part, they didn't seem to care much. My view is that a website needs to make you money- if it doesn't, why on earth would you waste your time and money by having one! So let's start by looking at something simple. Ask your website designer what a Title tag is. Now, in every case in ...

Guaranteed Extra Business

Here are some incredible stats about search engines that you may not know: • 75% of British people use search engines on a regular basis. • 56% of all British people using one every single day. • 40% of all search engine searches are for local businesses and services. • 54% of British people regularly use the internet instead of the phone book to find local services • 92% of all local searches will eventually convert into a sale The most popular way for someone to find a website is by going through a search engine. Google is the most popular, so it’s important to target their results more than other search engines. The whole search engine industry used to be about very short “keywords” that would lead people to finding the website they were looking for. Everyone used to simply type things like “Computer repairs” into a search engine, check out the first few results and then make a decision about what they wanted to do. However, these days, consumers are becoming much better at searching with Google, so keywords have progressively become longer in order to return more relevant results. For example, instead of just “Computer repairs” which may give us ...

Southerndown Golf Club

Keywords: Bridgend golf club, Ryder cup wales 2010, Celtic manor 2010, Downland golf course, welsh championship golf course This project was slightly unusual for us as we also oversaw the re-launch of the website to include additional functionality like online tee time booking, an online diary, event management, payment gateway to book online, a members section, an interactive course walkthrough and many other features, including video. The SEO has made a massive difference to visitors reaching the site from all over the world, particularly during October 2010 when The Ryder cup was staged in Wales. The Page rank has risen to 3, visitors have increased by a factor of ten and more importantly green fee income has risen by nearly £20,000 (attributable partially to the website). The site has attracted rave reviews from the golfing community. The website is the highest ranked private members golf club website in Wales as measured by Alexa and now attracts over 300 unique visitors a day.  Mike Blackman is the Chairman at Southerndown- please feel free to contact him through the website.
