Search Engine Optimisation or (SEO) is an ongoing process but as with most things there are some fundamentals that should be in place right at the start, we endeavour to make all of our websites "search engine friendly" and ensure that all of our clients understand the difference between On Page SEO & Off Page SEO, one without the other can be effective but both together (done properly) will make your website a success.
Sites can load slowly for a variety of reasons, ranging from using large images to having poor quality web hosting, or even the geographical location of your hosting company, optimising page load speed should be one of your top priorities.
When building a website it is important to use the right words with SEO. It is vital you use word that users would search for. For example don’t use “Peak of Everest” Use “What is the height of Everest?” because people will type that. On the other hand doing things like having your content in plain text not just PDF and Include business hours and services will have a good impact.
Alexa Traffic Rank is traffic rank of a site. The traffic rank is based on 3 months of historical traffic data collected from the users of Alexa Toolbar. Also combined with different traffic data source and page views. Alexa also counts the number of visitors and number of page views of all the sites for Alexa traffic rank.
Most of the sites we build are built on a Wordpress platform. Wordpress is a PHP based platform and offers you, the client, a powerful CMS system allowing you to make changes to the content of your website. WordPress is used by over 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013 (source Wikipedia) and powers around 60 Million websites across the web.
