SEO it Right – The ‘Dash for Cash’

This year SEO it Right is participating in the Great Midlands fun run. The run is 8.5 miles all around the Sutton Coldfield area and the idea behind it is to raise money for your chosen cause.

Every year, we get behind a charitable event in order to give something back to the community. In 2012, the directors Adam and Frances Berry departed on an expedition up Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, raising money for a young girl with Cerebral Palsy who needed to go to America for life changing surgery and last year we supported Yoxall Dads for Charity by being a sponsor at their charity ball. In 2014 we, as a company, have chosen to do the fun run.

The charity we have chosen to support is the Birmingham Children’s hospital due to the fantastic work they do for children and the massive impact they have on young children’s lives. The race commences on Sunday 1st June 2014 at 11am so feel free to come down and support us!

We are also asking for donations to help support this fantastic cause. Whatever you can give we are grateful for and so are the thousands of children who have to visit the children’s hospital every year.

The training for the run is vigorous but the cause is very worthy. If you have any tips for us on how we can effectively train for the run please let us know! Some of us will be walking, some running and some doing it on all fours (well that will be Snoops the Dog!).

To make a donation, please click HERE!

Please watch this space for more updates from the fun runners!

My First Week at SEO it Right

I began at SEO it Right on Monday 17th March 2014 as part of my Social Media apprenticeship. I came in with only vague knowledge and understanding of social media after only undergoing one week at College. From first thing Monday morning, I had walked into the office and I was greeted by everyone and knew immediately that I was in a safe and friendly environment.

I then sat down with Frances who talked through with me what I had learnt and what I aimed to achieve out of the placement. I quickly grasped the way that everything was run and by the end of Monday, had successfully completed numerous status updates for a client. This went on for the entirety of my first week, with constant support and backing from the entire team who were more than happy to help even if I was asking the plain obvious. I have learnt how to effectively word statuses and how to manage my time and complete work to a high standard.

My apprenticeship is in Social Media and so I have been focusing primarily on this area whilst being in the workplace and I feel that the first week has given me more of an insight into how social media works within a business and how all the specialist tools work in order to convey this and keep them up to date. The skills I have learnt so far have already taught me how to correctly word updates to make sure that they are relevant to their target audience. I look forward to completing my apprenticeship and hopefully continuing my career in Social Media. I would like to thank the whole team at SEO it Right for being patient with me throughout this first week and for being very supportive whenever I have an issue. It is a fantastic place to work!

How To Choose an SEO

Achieve Real Results With SEO London Services

If you have a website but are concerned that it isn’t really delivering the volume of traffic or creating the level of awareness that you need for your business then you may want to consider the benefits of working with an SEO London company.

If you haven’t got a website, then firstly what planet are you on? And secondly, don’t you think it is about time you got one?  Don’t worry because your London SEO company will most likely offer web design services as well so you can have a fully optimised website and on-going search engine optimisation services all through the same company.

Search engine optimisation is a complex and time-consuming process and thus should only be attempted by the experts.  There are plenty of people out there who claim to be experts but you should trust only those SEO companies who appear competent and able to complete their own SEO – a simply way to check this is to see what keywords they rank for.  If they don’t rank for major SEO and associated keywords, using both local and generic search terms, then chances are they don’t have the knowledge and experience to get your business ranked for your favoured keywords either.

An SEO London company can bring many benefits to your business, such as increased traffic, improved search engine listings for targeted keywords and an increased online presence thanks to social media marketing, organic SEO services and email marketing campaigns.

Aside from the offsite search engine optimisation services, your London SEO company will also provide onsite SEO to make sure that your website is search engine friendly.  This will include adding relevant keywords meta data to the site, adding XML sitemaps and installing analytics software to enable you to track the number of visitors to your site, where they come from, how long they stay on the site and what keywords, if any, they used to find you.

There are many more benefits to using SEO London services and to find out all you have to do is pick up the phone and contact your local SEO company (after doing a search and finding them on page one for some SEO keywords, that is!).

The Importance Of Web Design and SEO

The Prospect that you should have SEO on your site even before you develop it appears counter-intuitive, and in many different ways, it is. But, not entirely. I’ve been an SEO for over 4 years, and I still can’t get past the fact that optimisation continues to be the “after thought,” only entering play even after the site has been installed and operating for months or even years.

This mindset must change.
The achievements a website’s web marketing efforts can make or break many businesses. It no longer is practical to employ your SEO company only following a website has been developed. That’s like doing demographic research when you have already chosen your store’s location and invested thousands of money in putting together the shop.
Just like demographic research should be carried out to determine where and how a business sets up their brick and mortar store, SEO is needed before you start to program the first piece of code or design the first graphic for your website. The truth is, development and SEO are so completely intertwined which they both have to be considered together. Failure to do so frequently leads to expensive re-development costs as the SEO company requests changes that may have been done within the initial development stages.

I frequently get calls from businesses exploring Search Engine Optimization but would like to hold back until their site is fully developed and operational before they sign up with any particular SEO company. This tactic seems to make logical sense because business people often desire to make sure the web page looks and performs properly before dropping money into a long lasting commitment to an online marketing firm. But, SEO is just as much part of the business plan as the web development.
The web site marketing plan really should be one of the driving facets of web site development. But, unfortunately, many of the things connected to marketing are usually done wrong during the site development. That’s not saying developers don’t understand what they’re doing, quite contrary. Developers are usually great programmers, designers, and creators. They’re just generally not great optimizers. And there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s simply not what they specialize in.

Rolling out a web site that operates well below a it’s full performance capabilities isn’t only a waste of time, it’s a waste of money, even if you’re not quite ready to place the thing into high gear. It doesn’t make smart financial sense to develop an internet site that has got to be re-developed again when you get your SEO company involved. Nor can it make good sense to tie your SEO’s hands since you don’t wish to put money into site development again. Ultimately, this puts you in a lose/lose situation.
