What is it?

Search Engine Optimisation refers to the techniques employed to boost a website’s position in search engine results. Ever since the birth of the web, people have wanted to get their website to the top of page 1 of Google. In turn, search engines have spent years perfecting their way of ranking websites. And so SEO was born and became a huge industry, full of professionals – and also the occasional cowboy.

Our approach is to focus uniquely on the content of your website to ensure it is as SEO-compliant as possible. This helps search engines gauge what you are offering, and it also makes your content clearer to visitors.

Our keyword analysis strategy asks the question: “What would a potential customer be typing into Google to find a business like this” and ensures your site is built accordingly. This is all part of our design and build process, whether you order a Quick & Simple site, or something custom designed.

Can you get me onto page 1 of Google?

The honest answer is, it depends! If your business offering is somewhat unique, then yes, we can guarantee you’ll be the top result. If, for example, you run a holiday gite in the Dordogne though, you’re just one of literally thousands of businesses, so we can make no such promise. All we can promise you is that your site will be built with the latest best SEO practises in mind.

If anyone promises you that they can get you onto page 1, then they may well fall into what we call the Snake Oil Salesman category of SEO specialist. There are ways to try and cheat the system but ultimately, cheaters always get caught in the end.
