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 or Search Engine Results Pages, hence a complex machine.

SEO is as important as PPC; however, SEO can raise awareness without the great expense of PPC campaigns. Although many ranking factors are involved, any size business can achieve Google page one positions within 3-6 months.

What is a Keyword?

A SEO specialist will use their expertise to conduct keyword research utilising software tools before embarking on a new SEO strategy.

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.

Long-Tail Keywords?

These are less competitive keywords such as keywords that contain a specific location, product, or service.

These keywords or phrases are easier to take to Google page one and therefore, saving time and money, yet valuable for raising awareness.

Mid-Tail Keywords?

These are more competitive keywords (with higher monthly search volumes) such as keywords for some local and regional searches, products, services, brands, or product categories for example.

Mid-tail keywords or phrases require further expertise and therefore more time to achieve Google page one positions.

Short Tail Keywords?

Short-tail keywords or phrases are very competitive with much higher monthly search volumes.

For example, keywords for national or international listings, popular products, brands or services.

It can take longer to achieve Google page one positions for short-tail keywords; however, the awareness they raise and the ROI compared to PPC or paid advertising far outweighs the extra time.

Expert SEO Guide

Search Engine Optimisation is highly beneficial to attract more traffic or visitors to raise product/service/brand awareness and improve 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 or specialists utilising Black Hat techniques, hence the switch to White Hat SEO. SEO experts now use only White Hat techniques to avoid penalties imposed by Google.

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 expert 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.

Content is Key

There have been several Google algorithm updates recently, one of which highlights that content remains a major key ranking factor. The text to code ratio checker is great to ensure your content outweighs the HTML/JavaScript etc. There are many free online tools, however for is useful and fast. The quality and volume of your content are key aspects of your SEO strategy.

Therefore, to help the search engine bots to semantically decode the meaning, correct HTML structure is key.

What’s a good strategy to harness the benefits of a mobile-first approach?

As a SEO consultant, here are some tips to help you with your mobile-first strategy:

  • Responsive and optimised web design. Ensure your web pages load quickly, ideally under 3 seconds for mobile devices. There are many articles to help guide you through the process configuring the essential files to best help with website optimisation or for most CMS platforms search for a plugin or application to help you with this important process.
  • Take a mobile first approach and think carefully about user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design.
  • Well researched and quality content is key to engage with your audience, ensure your content adheres to Google’s quality guidelines.
