Boost your online presence! Free workshop for West Midlands businesses: Learn to rank higher on Google & attract more visitors

Learn how to get more free traffic from Google by attending this free workshop! If SEO (search engine optimisation) is a mystery to you, or you’ve ever wondered how your competitors show up in search results, but your website doesn’t, or you simply want to improve the rankings you already have, this workshop is for you.

Modern SEO requires a comprehensive approach to improving your website and online presence, from writing high-quality content that demonstrates your expertise and fulfils all a visitor’s needs, to acquiring links back to your site from others and building solid customer reviews. This workshop covers it all, with practical guidance and real-world examples.

We explore the workings of search engines, technical elements of a website that can affect performance, how to add extra information to pages to help search engines and how to check on performance using Google Search Console. As a result, you will understand how to structure your website and evaluate the reports in Search Console to drive further optimisation.

We continue with a guide to keyword research and how to use that information to formulate a content plan to expand the information available on your site. It also explains the best ways to write and structure content to be understood by search engines, so that you can optimise your pages to rank for the right keywords.

The workshop concludes with an exploration of how Google evaluates E-E-A-T (Experience, Expertise, Authority and Trust) and a look at the importance of links and how to get other sites to link to yours.
