Great course, excellent tutor, thank you!Attendee Review, 15 March 2019
With over 50,000 searches conducted on Google every second, it’s no wonder we all want to be on the first page of search results when someone searches for our products or services. Whilst that can never be guaranteed, there are lots of actions we can take to ensure our website is search engine friendly and Google can find us easily. This full day workshop explores SEO from the basics of identifying the right keywords to target and knowing where to place them, to using your blog content to build links to your website.
Business owners wanting to understand why some websites perform better than others.
Marketing people who want to gain more knowledge of improving their online offering.
Webmasters and web design teams looking to add additional value to their services.
Some technical issues will be discussed as part of the course, so any experience in web design and coding would be beneficial, but certainly not essential.
(The price is inclusive and as an education provider we do not charge VAT.)
We offer a 10% discount to Leeds and Bradford Chamber of Commerce members. To claim your discount please call 0113 812 1725 and quote your Chamber membership number.
