Have you ever thought of SEO as a bit of a mystery? Have you ever wanted to know what SEO tasks you should be doing?
In this episode, we talk about the hugely important and mysterious topic that is SEO. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation and is the process of making your website friendly to Google (and other search engines).
As always, you’ll hear from James Parnwell Founder and Managing Director of TheOnlineCo. – plus our special guest Rich Brown, Head of SEO here at TheOnlineCo.
SEO is a big topic and with so many tasks to be done, it’s hard to know where to start. So together, James and Rich are going to give you a list of seven things you can do today. If you’ve been doing SEO on your website for a while, this may act as a checklist, however, if you’re new to SEO, then these seven items are the perfect place to start.
One of the things we pride ourselves on here at TheOnlineCo., is not using jargon where possible. The problem with SEO is, that’s a bit hard, because some things only have a technical name. So in this episode Rich will give a technical answer in as clear English as he possibly can and James will give an analogy of how that works. This way you get two perspectives on the action point and fingers crossed, you’ll then be able to anchor both the technical and the real world.
