But ranking well in a SERP is not a given. It requires strategy and effort to optimising fully for search engine visibility.

As an online marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords they enter and which search engines are preferred by users. Optimising a website for search engines can involve:

  • Auditing an existing site to assess its SEO state of play to ensure performance and ranking is not compromised after a redesign by mapping keywords to the new information architecture ensuring optimal keyword allocation
  • Editing content, HTML and associated coding to both increase relevance to targeted keywords
  • Remove barriers to, and enhance, indexing receptibility
  • Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks or inbound links.
