Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to a specific website by improving the website from a search engines perspective.


Search engines have spiders crawling the web creating a database of websites on the internet and then displaying them in the search results if they are relevant. They use complex algorithms, maths and programming to determine a sites value and in the case of Google then Page Rank (PR). This is done by examining how many and how strong the back links pointing to a site. In order to optimise a site for the best near future position within search results certain things need to be done such as:
  • Attaining quality/relevant back links
  • Unique Quality Content and a wealth of information
  • Content with a high relevant keyword density
  • Completed HTML tags with relevant keywords
  • Keywords in the Domain Name
