Search Engines - Listing and Optimisation

The mysteries of Search Engine Optimisation are a standard part of our web development, not an extra expensive add-on! We aim to have your website listed highly on the major search engines for appropriate searches and key phrases and we achieve this through good design and understanding of the requirements, not through tricks and dodgy coding!

All of the websites we have developed have noticeably improved their search engine rankings, with a high proportion appearing on the first page of Google. One of our customer's websites moved from not appearing on the first 15 pages of Google to page 1 in less than 4 months! A number of our sites have pages that have achieved the coveted Google 1st place for appropriate search terms. We don't just stop at the top of Google, the other major search provides such as Bing and Yahoo! are also on our hit list and we are proud to have achieved very good results on these too for our clients

To achieve our results, we use various tools including (but not limited to)

  • W3C HTML Validation
  • Basic WAI accessibility validation
  • Title tag, meta tag, alt tag and header tag validation
  • Keyword research and analysis
  • Text content analysis
  • Sitemaps + Google sitemap verification and installation
  • Google webmaster tools analysis

Note: As writing text for effective websites is a skill that we have honed over the years, we cannot guarantee high Search Engine placement on website for which the client had control over the text on the site. We will do all we can to advise on quality text placement for your website but the quality of client written text is something that is outside of our control!
