What will I learn about SEO?

Everything we teach has proven success within the fields of SEO and Digital Marketing.

We’ll discuss what SEO is, and why it’s so important for your business.

We’ll teach you the three main parts of SEO, being On-Page SEO, Off-Page SEO and Technical SEO.

Whether your site is hand-coded or built using a builder like Squarespace, Wix, WordPress, Shopify, or something else, it doesn’t matter.  The tools, techniques and strategies we use are all the same.

On-Page SEO

In the world of SEO, website content is king.

Having your website content optimised for search engine readability is crucial.

We’re talking things like heading structure, image optimisation, URL structure, effective page titles and descriptions and a whole host of other things.

We’ll look at some of the best ways to gather great keywords for your content, and what you should do with those keywords on your web page.

Off-Page SEO

Having other people recognise your great content is not only a nice feeling, it really helps with your SEO as well. This is just one of the factors of Off-Page SEO.

We’ll look at what makes a great link to your site, and what doesn’t. We’ll show you proven ways to get high-quality links to your website too.

Off-Page SEO is where a lot of ‘black hat’ techniques have stemmed from, so it’s important to get this part right.

Technical SEO

Great technical SEO covers the code part of your website, as well as some other factors, such as server configuration, sitemaps, structured data and efficient code.

Not everyone is comfortable in this world, which is quite understandable. This is why we guide you step by step through several factors of technical SEO that you can very easily test and implement yourself straight away.

We love code. We love teaching code and we’re passionate about sharing these skills. That’s why we bring this crucial piece of the puzzle where most don’t bother.

Putting the SEO puzzle together

All three of these factors play a huge part in how Google and other search engines read and analyse your website content. It is imperative to keep all three in mind when planning your marketing and content strategies.

Many SEO procedures also crossover quite well with accessibility techniques which is hugely important for developing, marketing and writing content for any website in Australia (or indeed the world).

Why do business owners need to know SEO?

SEO knowledge is SEO power.
