The Importance of SEO

In order for small businesses to reach their target audiences, they must ensure that they are ranking high in these local searches and this is where our SEO Dorking services come into their own.

There are several strategies for targeting local search, including:

  • Listing your business in relevant industry and geographical directories/listings
  • Creating keywords that combine your company with your physical location (e.g. “plumbers” and “Surrey”)
  • Optimising your company’s website for mobile

Posting New Content

It can be difficult for small businesses to find the time to update the content on their website and this is another area where our SEO Dorking services come into their own..  However, consistent, fresh content positively increases organic search rankings as well as user experience, which is increasingly important to search engines’ ranking factors.  Two of the easiest ways you can consistently publish new, quality content are:

  • Creating a blog for you business – Many companies will start one, but as deadlines and other work crops up, the posting and maintenance will fizzle out. Commit to posting content relevant to your industry or company twice a week.  Involve co-workers, interns, and if the budget allows for it, freelance writers to help.
  • Create a news feed on your company website, and update it frequently with events or news, anything that is relevant to your business and industry, and that organically uses your keywords to help boost search rankings.
