Note: don’t worry if you’re not UK based, the “UK” part of “SEO UK” is simply to make it easier for me to target the UK SEO market specifically (and because seo.com had already been registered… lol)
The Search Engine Optimization advice I give is relevant wherever you are, and the “UK” specific parts can be considered as good for any local or country targeting, just replace UK with your own country…
OK, let’s kick off with a simple question –
“What are Search Engine Optimization Services?”
Nowadays every business realises that they could benefit from a web site, but most businesses don’t realise that just putting up a “Business Card” style website on the internet is unlikely to actually bring them many, if any, customers.
Unfortunately there’s a little more to it than that, and that’s where UK SEO Services come in…
However, I also want to make it clear that “SEO” is not some strange, unfathomable “arcane art” to be feared. It’s actually fairly simple once you understand the principles of what the Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN etc. are looking for and how they “rank” sites in their “SERP’s” (Search Engines Results Page’s).
First of all the search engines need to know your site exists, then they need to understand what the site is about (e.g. do you make widgets, service spigots, transport jangles, or train wombles) and how “important” it is compared to other sites about the same thing (e.g. are you the world’s biggest spigot manufacturer).
That’s where an SEO (aka “search engine optimization”) company comes in.
SEO, done, correctly can get your site on to the first page of the search engines for your targeted keywords in your market, which can bring hordes of visitors to your site for free. Good SEO will also ensure that those visitors are “targeted”, in other words they are actually looking for what you provide, in other words they are likely to become your customers and not just leave immediately…
Don’t make the mistake of thinking your site just needs to look good, pretty graphics won’t help bring visitors to your site, only a good search optimization strategy can do that.
Think of it this way, if you were selling consumer goods to the general public, would you prefer to have a shop in a prime spot on the high street, or down an unused back alley that no one ever uses?
That’s the difference between a site that has been optimized for the search engines and one that hasn’t, your prospective customers can find you.
