So does my website really need SEO?
I believe so yes and especially if you have a brand new website to get off the ground. The internet is so competitive that without SEO a new website may not be noticed by search engines initially and also may not be referenced for the right keywords and phrases. So you could be buried amongst your competitors and for those who have SEO carried out, they have an advantage against those who don’t.
Can I do SEO myself?
Yes you can, just as you can also build a website for yourself. However, you will need to commit some time to this and sometimes if you’re running your own business, time is very precious! Therefore having a professional provide this service may be more cost effective and have a better impact in the long term. There are lots of free resources available on the internet if you want to have a go. One of the best reference websites for SEO is SEO MOZ here http://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo
How do search engines decide how to rank websites?
It is due to a combination of many factors including on site and off-site details. For example, the domain and url address, keywords in page titles and page headings, and also in image urls and alt tags. But also external factors such as reputable links to your website can also significantly increase your rankings.
Can you help add seo onto an existing site that you haven’t developed?
Yes I can, although sometimes a re-build is required if the website is built using the old fashioned method of using tables. SEO is only effective if the website the user arrives at is attractive and functional too.
