    Search Engine Optimisation – SEO

    Everyone wants to be at the top of the leading search engines: Google, Yahoo & Bing. The problem is there are only a limited number of positions on the first page of search results.

    Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) improves your ranking in the natural, organic, non-sponsored listings area of a search engine results page. In order to achieve a high ranking within this space, a website should satisfy the following three principles:

    • Your website must be designed, coded and hosted in a way that will allow search engine spiders to successfully access and index all relevant site content.
    • Your website's content must be designed, constructed and written in such a way that appeals to the website's target audience and to the search engine algorithms, so that it can be deemed relevant for all possible search terms related to that site.
    • The site should be 'endorsed' by other credible websites as an equally credible, valuable and authoritative online resource for the site's relevant industry or subject matter.

    Each website is different and there is no single formula that works for all. We undertake a thorough review of your website, analysing its online presence against a number of key SEO criteria and ranking factors in order to assess its strengths and weaknesses and to effectively provide consultancy that will transform your site's search engine optimisation.

    Content Management Systems

    When it comes to your website, it is important that the content is as fresh and up to date as possible. Many of our web projects use a Content Management System, or CMS, to make updating your content as quick and easy as possible. Our CMS systems give you the ability to keep your content bang up to date without needing to know any complicated code. All you need is to be able to type - our simple interface will ensure that it will look great when published on your site. CMS doesn't stop with text; our systems also enable the simple administration of images, calendars, news feeds, product listings, videos and social media accounts.

    If you need a small business website up and running quickly with minimal cost, without sacrificing a great suite of features, then there are many open source CMS solutions available such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress. If you need something a bit more specialised, then we can create a system that is completely bespoke to you and your business. We have built bespoke loyalty card systems, complex ecommerce platforms and e-learning applications using a wide range of different technologies.

    We have also developed specific content management systems for the education sector. Their unique feature-sets have everything you will need for your institution to deliver engaging content that is easy for your team to administer.

    If you would like to know more about our website content management systems then please call us to discuss how we can help deliver your specific needs and objectives
