What are some of the things we can do to ensure your site is SEO friendly?

Without planning your site's structure in advance, you'll have to pay an SEO professional before you can begin to create any effective search engine optimization. At Sussex SEO we consider a host of factors for each of the sites we build. Google and other search engines will use the content on your website, relationships between your content and placement of rich media to determine the relevance of your website vs specific keywords.

We will work with you/your website developer to adjust existing content/add new content to create the necessary ranking signals for your web properties to rank for desired keywords. In addition we will ensure the necessary algorithmic trust factors are in place and your site complies with Google’s 2013 web master guidelines.

  • Markup & Tags including HTML5 Schema. These are the invisible signposts that direct search engine spiders to your content. If Yahoo, Google, or MSN send a spider to your website, this is how it knows what the pages are about. We ensure that every page on your site has the proper markup elements so that the spider understands what your page is about.
  • Redirects & 404 Protection: If you used to have a page on your website but it no longer exists it’s more than likely it was indexed by a search engine. We will setup redirects that closes this ‘broken circuit’ allowing you to retain your old backlinks and ensure you keep the page rank and authority you’ve worked so hard to build. It also means people can still link to your new web content through the old links that are still indexed online.
  • Tracking / Monitoring of keywords via SERP Book.

Once the primary analysis / initial onsite optimisation is complete, your site will start to rank for relevant, targeted search terms, meaning that your site will be in an improved position when those terms are searched for by a potential customer. Due to the competitive nature of some keywords it will be unlikely that a web site will achieve a 1st page position for desired keywords without additional on-site and off-site work being completed.

Of course there are a LOT more things we build into our websites to make them SEO friendly which is why we insist that you consider your online marketing strategy at the same time as your site is built. If the site already exists we can upgrade it but it helps to plan these things in advance. At Sussex SEO we can create a site that is ideal for you and your audience, and also ticks all the boxes by creating an online brand that will attract your key demographic.
