We've taken a few calls in the past week asking if we can provide search engine placement services. It's an interesting phrase to use and one that had kind of fallen out of use for a little while - or so it seemed! Generally, when people talk about placement in this way, they are looking to get the best positioning and visibility in the search engines. In some senses, it reminds us of the days when we'd...

Some market sectors are clearly more competitive during the summer months. In fact, it's fair to see that some businesses fall away dramatically at other times of year. This is clear to me when I hear an ice-cream van pass at this time of year. Where are they in December and January? I can only assume that they have alternative jobs for part of the year - maybe they spend the winter months selling electric heaters? Or...

So what's the difference between search engine optimisation campaigns that are carried out for small businesses and those that are undertaken for larger organisations? The most obvious answer here is that the budgets tend to be very different. Although this will generally be the case, it may not have quite as great an impact on the outcomes as might be imagined. Although larger companies will often have significantly larger online marketing budgets, they may also be targeting considerably...

We're looking at attending quite a few industry events this year. Here are a few dates for the calendar: 29 June and 30 June 2011 The Online Marketing Show takes place at Olympia. With over 6,000 key players in the industry having attended last year's event, 2011 is sure to be popular too. Saturday 2 July 2011 London SEO Off The Clock is taking place at The Old Red Cow (71/72 Long Lane, Smithfield, London), from 2pm until late. They've hired...

Well, we might suggest that the answer to this question is because we are a UK SEO company, but that's not the actual answer! If you have a business based in the UK, then there are plenty of good reasons to stick with a domestic provider. The most obvious reason is because local companies will usually have the best understanding of the local market. They'll be able to advise you on what's working well for other clients...

Search engine optimisation is beginning more mainstream here in the UK. I know this, since more people understand what I'm talking about when they ask me what I do! There's undoubtedly greater recognition of what the industry is all about and how it can be of use. We're more used to receiving enquiries from friends and acquaintences about how we achieve improving results. Sometimes, those queries may have financial benefits in mind. One of the great things about...

Our services are all aimed at helping businesses to success online. As might be expected, we have considerable expertise in marketing online. But how does this style of marketing differ from other techniques? Technical issues It's easy to become focused on technical issues when dealing with the Internet. It's easy to see why this should be the case - after all, for many people, the Internet is all about technology. Keeping on top of technical aspects is certainly important,...

Getting your website into the best organic search engine positions can be a cost-effective way of gaining new business. Our search engine optimisation options are all designed to help you get the most from your online business. But when experts talking about obtaining improved search engine placement in an organic way, what do they actually mean? Most of us think of "organic" as being a phrase that describes natural growth. But, in the world of SEO, things...

Sunday 15 May - that's come around quick! Don't forget that this weekend sees the annual Watercress Festival taking place in Alresford. It's expected that around 10,000 people will attend the event we're told - that will actually double the population of the town for the day! It's free to attend, although those who are driving will need to pay to park (£3 for the day). Hopefully the weather will be good too!...

If you're thinking about optimising your small business website, then what should you expect to be involved? Our small business SEO service provides a cost-effective solution, but it also recognises that there are some fundamental differences when dealing with small business websites. A large corporate, often with a significant online advertising budget, is able to make some moves that simply aren't possible on a smaller budget. This can certainly make the challenge considerably greater for small businesses, but...
