Search engine optimisation (SEO)
Powerful passive marketing
So what is it and why all the fuss? The bottom line is that SEO is about building your business without you having to engage in active (and costly) marketing activities. It is used to generate more new business enquiries or sales. It is effectively free advertising through online searches for the products or services you provide.

Benefits of SEO
SEO delivers free advertising that can drive significant enquiries, and therefore business, your way. And this happens without you having to lift a finger! The benefits of SEO include:
SEO is the process of making strategic technical and content changes to a website to make it more “attractive” to search engines such as Google. The optimisation process encourages search engines to rank a site well above sites that are poorly optimised, or not optimised at all. Based on the search terms used, they rank sites according to what they determine as a quality website containing relevant content.
Many people believe in the adage “if you build it they will come”. Unfortunately, when it comes to web sites, this is far from the truth. The World Wide Web is a vast expanse filled with billions of websites, so it is virtually impossible for consumers to stumble upon your web site without prior knowledge of its existence. Unless of course they do a search, and your site appears in that search.
Recent research has shown that 80% of internet users use search engines to find sites of interest. Unfortunately, if your site is not listed by search engines, or ranks poorly, then it’s unlikely to be found. This is where Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) comes into play. SEO is the process of making a website more visible and attractive to search engine ranking systems. Optimisation helps search engines to determine what your site relates to, and how important, useful and/or relevant it is compared to other sites. Search engines then rank sites accordingly.
SEO is a complex and constantly changing process. There are also factors beyond the control of SEO providers that impact on the success of the optimisation performed. For example, search engines don’t disclose details of the algorithms they use to rank sites and these change from time to time. The time period over which competitor rankings have been improved and the amount of funds your competitors have invested in SEO are also unknowns. Consequently, no one can guarantee specific results using ethical SEO practices, not even Luminosity.
Another approach to increase your site’s popularity is to use a Search Engine Marketing (SEM) program, such as Google Adwords. These programs place your sites listing at the top of your specified search results pages. This is done in return for a fee that is collected every time someone clicks on your sites listing. Ideally an SEM program would include site optimisation and an Adwords program. This would increase website traffic instantly, while the site optimisation changes are being detected and your site re-ranked against your competitors by the search engine.
In a marketplace as highly saturated as the World Wide Web, it is important to differentiate your business as much as possible. SEO can help achieve a point of differentiation, helping to develop and maintain a sustainable competitive advantage by increasing brand awareness, enquiries and sales.

Keyword and search-terms targeting your local market
Our keyword and search-term recommendations are based on relevant data, representative of your local market, not just global data.
