These vulnerabilities include outdated software such as plug-ins, themes and the wordpress core itself. These should always be kept up-to-date to minimize the threat of having your website

A mobile friendly site is more important then you may think.

Times have definitely changed in the last  5 years. Mobile devices are much faster, much bigger, and have replaced laptops and desktops for primary means of searching the internet for services, products, and information. That is why it is crucial to have a website that is viewable from any sized device, a Mobile Friendly Website. Google Analytics traffic reports for a reputable local restaurant we designed shows 46% of the total months traffic came from a mobile or tablet device. Out of the almost 2000 visitors in the month, that accounts for a lot of potential customers. If the information isn’t readable, the visitor will simply back out and move on to one of your competitors. NOT GOOD!

SEO – Search Engine Optimization Basics

Improving your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) starts with having a well designed, clean and functional website. Focusing on keyword or key phrases in all your content including text, images, page titles, headings is a good start. Relevant copy that doesn’t get stale will keep your website fresh, and let your visitors and search engines know your site has a pulse. Try to avoid duplicating copy throughout your website. The days of search engine manipulation are long gone. Google’s Algorithm (Codename Penguin) is highly intelligent and is constantly changing. Strict parameters must be met to increase and maintain your rank position. Ongoing maintenance is a must if you want to be discovered.

SEO Surrey  - Search Engine Optimization

Don’t underestimate the importance of SEO for your website. Search engines like Google demand quality websites with relevant content to be noticed.

SEO Strategy, Implementation & Tracking

It is important to have a solid game plan when committing time, money and effort into something that seems so daunting. SEO is a gradual process and you won’t see results right away. Stay focused on your goals. It might be a keyword or key phrase you want to target, or a certain demographic or city. Once you have researched and decided your marketing strategy, it’s time to implement this throughout your website. This is known as On-Page SEO. On-Page SEO lays a solid foundation for when you submit your site to search engines such as Google. Off-Page SEO would follow, and that includes backlinks, social bookmarking, article marketing and youtube videos. Off-Page SEO may seem like and awful lot of hard work. Well, truth be told, it is. Like I said, SEO takes time, and you have to be diligent and patient.

SEO Tracking with Google Analytics

Finally, with all of this hard work you have done, you need to track your progress. I set up all my clients with Google Analytics. It’s a great tool with live in-depth reports on website traffic. This is the fun part, you can start to see your hard work paying off!
