SEO training

Need to improve your SEO?

How you rank on search engines can make or break your business. Our SEO (search engine optimisation) training will help you to understand what users are searching for, how to create content to match their needs, and how to ultimately get people to click to your site.

During the course, you will:

  • Define what your SEO needs to achieve
    Which keywords should you be targeting for your highest ranks? How can you focus your efforts around the right words that will help bring conversions? What kind of content do you need to produce to make sure it happens?
  • Learn about keyword research, market research and competitor analysis
    Your company's internal language may not match what people are searching. We'll help you research what people are actually searching, what keywords your competitors are targeting and what kind of searches tend to bring the right audiences to your site
  • Create on-site SEO using page copy and information architecture
    We'll help you understand what user needs your site's content should be answering, and how your site should be structured to provide this to both users and search engines
  • Learn how blogs, content sharing and link building improve ranking
    Creating new content will keep your site fresh, bring in new visitors and expand your reach across different search queries. We'll cover how to plan your content and promoting it effectively by getting others to link to it
  • Discover technical elements of SEO
    Whilst content is important, there are other aspects of SEO that you'll need to make sure your site is optimised. We'll look into page load times, optimising SERP information and making sure your site works on mobile.

Why is SEO so important? We'll explain why time should still be taken in your Internet marketing efforts to obtain higher ranks.
