What Is Search Engine Optimisation [SEO] and Why Is It Important?

SEO is the process to optimise a website for search engines to improve your page rankings. SEO is essential because 95% of users immediately go to the top 5 ranked companies listed on results pages such as Google and a website needs to be in that top position.

Brand familiarity is the new route one to success, and Social Media is the provider.

Thirty years ago a mobile phone resembled a brick that you needed a case to carry the phone around in, because they were incredibly heavy. Today we slip them in a pocket.
Up until 10 years ago, a Mobile Telephone was a means of contact on the move, security for a loved one out alone, or access in an emergency.
Today, Mobile Telephones are an extension of the human body, the third hand. Everyone has one, often two, and they are now embedded in our Modern World.
