There's a lot of information about SEO provided online. Some of it is extremely useful, but there's also plenty of rubbish out there! Here's we take a look at some common myths and look to answer some important questions about SEO basics. Myth: You need to stick lots of keywords into the META keywords tag So what's the situation here and why has this become accepted? It's probably useful to start with a brief history lesson. In the early...

The BBC seem to be one of the organisations leading the way in the world of SEO. At least, you may often feel that it seems that way. If you search for just about anything that has recently made the news, then there's a fair chance that the BBC site will appear within the first page of the search engine results. That's an enviable position for them to have gained, but what's the explanation behind the level...

As you'll probably be aware, we're based in Hampshire. It's no coincidence that we should work from here, since we think it's one of the best locations in the UK. If you've never visited this beautiful county, then you're really missing out! We thought it might be nice to offer a little guide to some of the great places to visit: Winchester We're based just outside the County Town of Winchester, so we may be a little biased, but...

We know that "content is king" when it comes to the world of SEO. How do we know this? Mainly because it's something that's constantly stated by people working within the SEO industry. It's also a statement, however, that seems to me to have contributed to an overload of poor quality information online. It seems that plenty of people are out there creating content, but is there really value associated with much of it? Sadly, it seems...

If you're having SEO work carried out, then does it really matter where you chosen provider is located? Given that we market our services for local businesses on many occasions, it's safe to assume that we think that local knowledge really matters, but we would say that, wouldn't we?! The question is: why does it matter? Why is it more useful for a small business in Hampshire to use an SEO consultant in Winchester or Southampton, rather than...

Google Shopping changes If you've missed the big news in this area, then you may not be aware that Google Shopping is about to change significantly. Many online retailers have been used to the...

Does the Public Sector need to get involved in the world of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)? That's an interesting question to ask, at a time when the priority within the UK appears to be to cut spending in many areas. Without delving into the history of those cutbacks are occurring, it's worth considering whether SEO is an area where public finances should ever be invested. There has been investment in this area in the past - is...

It would be lovely to ignore Google sometimes. Indeed, this is something that can work well for some business owners, but it's not a risk that many can afford to take. The reality is that Google dominates the search engine scene here in the UK. With more than 85% of searches being conducted on this single search engine, it's clear that ignoring its existence will only lead to less traffic for your site. That doesn't mean, of...

In the world of SEO, it's amazing how frequently you'll hear people talking about "dominating" a particular market or sector. Is this something that's possible to achieve for a small business? The answer to that question rather depends upon your idea of what a market or sector actually consists of. If you have a small business that primarily targets customers within an area that's local to you, then it may well be realistic for you to take...

When we're tackling small business Internet marketing, how do things differ when compared to the campaigns that we run for larger businesses? There are actually more similarities than differences. We apply the same processes and approaches, but we're clearly very aware of the budget that's available. It means that we're always looking to provide value for money. In order to get the best returns for the client, it's critical that we're able to identify a suitable range of...
