Frequently Asked Questions

What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation and describes the practice of ranking a website high in the Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). The primary goal of SEO is to boost the amount of organic (i.e., unpaid) traffic to a website through appearing at the top of SERPs for particular keywords.

Which is better, SEO or PPC?

For a well-rounded marketing campaign, both will definitely play a significant role to guarantee the success of the business. SEO is primarily focused on the long-term goal of building your online presence, strengthening the image of your brand, and driving a consistent stream of highly targeted traffic to your website. On the other hand, PPC is more of short-term investment and focuses on driving traffic to your website and generating a healthy number of sales so that you end up with a positive Return of Investment (ROI).

What is on-page SEO?

On-page SEO refers to optimising the content of a page so that search engines are more likely to rank that page higher in the search result pages. There are a lot of other factors that play a significant role when evaluating on-page SEO – how long does it take for the website to load, have we included alt tags to all the images, have we made use of H1 title tags, have we included the keyword we are optimising for the appropriate number of times in the page, and many other ones.

Is SEO dead?

Even though Google and the other search engines have been improving their algorithms on a frequent basis, we can only conclude that SEO has become harder over the years but certainly not dead. White Hat SEO has and always been the only practical technique for ranking higher in the search result pages, and all the Black Hat methods have been filtered out over the years by the changes search engine in their ranking algorithms.

How is SEO changing?

As we previously mentioned the ranking algorithms of the major search engines, such as Google and Bing, have been progressively improving over the years to accommodate the latest technological advances and to diminish the effect of Black Hat techniques people have been coming up with. One of the most significant changes that have been introduced lately is the effect of how mobile-friendly a website is on the ranking. This change comes from the fact that over a half of the online visitors nowadays browse from their phones.

What is keyword research?

Keyword research is one of the most crucial analysis steps to take before starting to work on your SEO. It essentially determines which keywords you should optimise your content in the pages of your website.
