What is SEO?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. It’s the practice of increasing both the quality and quantity of traffic to your website, as well as exposure to your brand and organisation, through non-paid (or organic) search results. By using keywords on your website, specific to your business, you can improve how high your website ranks in a search. The higher up your ranking, the more visibility your business gets, resulting in increased traffic to your website.
