Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) | Google My Business

What is search engine optimisation (SEO)?

Search engine optimisation, or SEO, is the process of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website by improving search engine rankings – often referred to as “organic” listings.

Optimisation takes many forms, including title tags, meta descriptions, page content, keywords and much much more. In fact, Google has 200+ ranking factors that decide when and where your site will be shown in search results!

How can SEO benefit your business?

There are many benefits to SEO including:

  • Your website will be more user-friendly and hopefully in turn, search engine friendly;
  • You gain more targeted, relevant customers to your website – people who are actively searching for your product or service;
  • It helps to build brand awareness – people place more trust in brands with a strong web presence.
