Search Engine Optimization for Google

SEO and how to market your website to the search engines

Search Engine Optimisation is not an exact science as we don't know exactly how the Google search algorithm works and in any case it is frequently being revised. However, we can make educated guesses.

We can't guarantee top placement, and any company which does claim this is probably best avoided. Using tried and trusted techniques as seen from the results below, we believe though that we are likely to be able to improve your rankings. Whether you end up #1 for particular terms depends on a variety of factors, one of which is how competitive the search terms are you wish to optimise for. Being #1 or on page 1 might not be possible if you are up against significantly larger and longer established sites. However, why not send us an email to see how we can help.

Take a look at some of our sites. The proof is in the placement! Facts and figures correct as of 31st May 2006. Top 10 placements for terms with more than 10 million matching pages are highlighted.
