Superb Video Demystifies SEO

It’s quite rare that we include content from other search agencies (and even rarer that we feature anything aimed at beginners to the SEO industry), but after coming across this fantastic video from Essex-based agency Climbing Trees I thought it was well worth including as an example of how to use quality content to get your message across. The video does a good job of portraying it’s core message and demystifying the process of search engine optimisation (and we particularly like the ‘make good stuff’ tagline), but what really impressed...

Successful site architecture is about ease of navigation for your users; ensuring that your highest quality content is easy for your visitors... Read The Rest →

How Has The Farmer/Panda Update Affected SEO?

If you’ve been following the recent SEO news with any interest, you’ll be aware of Google’s recent algorithm update. Originally known as the ‘Farmer’ update (a term coined by Danny Sullivan, which quickly permeated into general usage), due to the fact that the algorithm update was aimed at so-called ‘content farms’. In the last few days however, Matt Cutts confirmed in an interview with Wired that the internal name for the update at the Google offices was the ‘Panda’ (or big Panda) update – apparantly named after a Google software...

How Does Social Media Affect SEO?

SEO engineers have long suspected that social media elements have an impact on search engine result pages, with particular reference to Google and Bing. This suspicion was confirmed at the end of 2010, via a Danny Sullivan interview with the two search giants, published on the widely respected SearchEngineLand. So we know that search engines are taking social media signals into account, but how can you use this information to improve your own social media and SEO campaigns?
