Search Engine Optimisation Q&A
What is SEO?
SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimisation which covers a broad area consisting of various principles and techniques. There are over 250 factors used by search engine algorithms to rank web pages in the SERPS, hence a complex machine. SEO is as important as PPC, however SEO can raise awareness without the great expense of some PPC campaigns. Although many ranking factors are involved any size business can achieve Google page one positions within 6 months.
What is a Keyword?
A SEO consultant will conduct keyword research using various software tools before embarking on a new SEO project. Keyword research identifies the most beneficial keywords or phrases for your products, services, or information. The keywords equate to search terms potential visitors type in the search engines like Google and Bing.
These are less competitive keywords such as keywords that contain a specific location or for local searches. These keywords or phrases are easier to take to Google page one and therefore are in a bronze package.
More competitive keywords such as keywords for national listings, brands, categories. These keywords are harder to take to Google page one and therefore are in a silver package.
Highly competitive keywords such as keywords for national and international listings, competitive brand names, products or services. These keywords are much harder to take to Google page one and therefore are in a gold package.

Search Engine Optimisation is highly beneficial to attract more traffic or visitors which raises awareness and potentially sales. The SEO landscape is constantly evolving bringing new challenges and levels of complexity. A SEO expert is highly proficient in on-site, technical, and off-site SEO principles and techniques.
There has been an enormous shift from SEO consultants utilising Black Hat techniques, hence the switch to White Hat SEO. SEO Consultants now use White Hat techniques to avoid penalties imposed by Google. Now Google has more control with their sophisticated algorithms to bring the “dark side” back into the light.
Decoding the Terminology
The terminology involved in SEO is broad. As a result, to help people in this fascinating world, I have created a SEO blog. The blog articles discuss SEO terminology in a straightforward way, helping you to improve your SEO step by step.
Avoid Black Hat SEO
It is important to choose a SEO consultant wisely not least because of Black or Grey Hat techniques. These techniques will damage your SEO strategy. Understanding the terms, Long-Tail, Mid-Tail, and Short-Tail keywords or phrases is also beneficial.
