If you want to get your website in front of your customers, search engine optimisation (SEO) is vital. Improving the visibility and ranking of your website in search engines will significantly increase your website visitors, resulting in an increase of enquiries, sales and revenue.
When a customer wants to find a local Manchester based business or looking for products and services, they will start their search on Google. If your beautifully designed website cannot be found, it means that your website is not optimised and your competitors are out performing your business.
For example; suppose you have a plumbing business in Manchester and you want to acquire more customers to use your services. You’ll be able to increase your position by optimising your website and content to be found for keyword searches like “plumber in Manchester” or “emergency plumbers in the Manchester area”. These types of searches can drive more visitors to your website and lead to more enquiries and increased revenue.
SEO is a core element of digital marketing and it shouldn’t be an afterthought during the web design process. SEO affects all business, local Manchester based businesses to international corporations, so if you’re investing in an online presence then SEO should be a top priority.

What is SEO?
SEO is an ongoing process with the aim of increasing the visibility of your website within search engines. Google is the most popular search engine and appearing on page one significantly improves the visibility of your website and click-through rates. Increased visibility and click-through rates will result in more visitors, sales, enquiries, and revenue..
Although SEO can sound like a simple task there are over 200 factors that Google looks for when generating search results, such as;
- Unique quality content
- Target keyword phrases
- Optimised for mobile devices
- Page load speed
- Page structure
- Quality back links
To remain the number one search engine, Google needs to return the best search results for their users. If your website is fully optimised and ticks all the boxes, then your website will appear above your competitor’s website.
