Search Engine Visibility

All websites are designed with Search Engine Optimisation in mind to make sure your business gets found. Although if you are in a strongly competitive marketplace, we would recommend using our SEO service to maximise your visibility above your competitors.

SEO

You may or may not be aware of the term “Search Engine Optimisation”.

Simply put, this is the process of getting your website to rank high up in the search engines. This is obviously very important as you will want to be found in the search results pages.
Google will crawl your website and look at multiple factors about it.
A few of these factors are:

  • Is the site coded well?

    All port-digital websites are built with SEO optimisation in mind. This means they are cleanly coded, structured correctly and use up to date technology to power them.
    You can find out more about the design process here.

  • Does it contain relevant content?

    Content is king these days, and if you are passionate about what you do, you’ll want to tell and show the world. The search engines want to see regularly updated content on your site and will see your company as a source of information for potential customers.

  • Is it secure?

    All port-digital websites come with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certification as standard. The search engines prioritise secure sites.

  • Is it fast?

    If your site doesn’t load quickly, then this will have a negative impact on your search engine rankings. Find out more about hosting here.

Hosting

A slow site is really bad for your potential customers.

Two reasons why a slow site is bad for your business.

  1. Your potential customers won’t want to wait for a slow site to load.
  2. The search engines will penalise your website and rank you lower down.
