What is Search Engine Optimization?
For most people seo is some kind of dark art, some well protected secret only known to the most privileged few. Everybody knows about keywords and meta description but what else is there to it?
Search engines like Google and Bing are not the actual internet but a collection of information in a database. Frequently, spiders – robots are searching the Internet and indexing the websites into their database. In order for the search engines to find our websites, we have to help them find us with some meta information and valuable content. Search engine optimization is a combination of meta information, linking strategies, keyword density and valuable content.
A good coded website is the base for good seo. Starting with the right structure, naming conventions and text formatting together with most common accessibility techniques, we lay the groundwork for your website to be search engine friendly and we will implement meta tags and keywords in your website to optimize your ranking.

What you can do to improve your standings:
While doing basic search engine optimization can be very successful for some businesses, depending on your competition and location, you will have to work a little bit harder to come up and more importantly stay up there.
With Google constantly trying to make search results more relevant and content driven, the only successful lasting strategy is to provide the consumer with relevant information about your services, business and keep your content fresh and updated.
Content management systems are the ultimate platform for keeping your content fresh. A content management or cms is a website that allows you to change content on your website or run a blog. Because of the ease of adding new articles, photos and other information without having to rely on your web designer, content management systems tend to be the best way to go for optimal seo.
When writing your content try to use words that are appropriate to describe your business and services. Use the keywords preferably in the first paragraph of your page copy. While you want search engines to find you, think foremost about your readers.
If I’m looking for information about custom web design, I don’t want to land on a page about website templates. Landing on a non-relevant page, is not only wasting my time but can also be costly if you are running a pay-per-click campaign. If the information somebody is looking for is not immediately visible, the chance for the visitor to leave your site is very likely.
You might have heard about landing pages but what are they? Landing pages are pages on your website that create a different entry point to your website other than your homepage. A landing page is a page with information about 1 subject and is seo optimized for just that subject. When somebody searches the internet for this subject, they will land on that particular page which is relevant for what they were looking for in the first place and have a high conversion rate. If you have a service business,we recommend having a landing page for each of your main services.
