Blue Web is a web design agency based in Somerset, between Bath and Frome and provides web design and SEO optimised websites to businesses and non profit organisations from the south west of England to London and beyond.
The idea of SEO is to essentially attract new customers via Google and the other search engines, to you via your website. The great thing about SEO (organic search) is that it is essentially free. The alternatives, including paid search (including Google Adwords) advertise your services via Google and also direct new clients to your website and can compliment organic search.
It's worth noting that Google tries it's best to rank those organisations it considers as the most important or credible organisations for specific key phrases. For example, this website appears on the first page of Google for the following phrases.
"Web design Bath", "Web design Frome" and other variations on this. This is no accident, this website has been optimised for these phrases and others. So here are a few basic tips to get your website on the first page of Google.
Google advises that your web designer is in the best position to advise on optimising your website, SEO as a separate industry is no longer relevant or useful and can be damaging to a site if done incorrectly.
So don't employ so called SEO experts, that claim to have all the answers. To check the credentials of any SEO company, check to see if they are at the top of Google for the key phrases for their core business, if they're not at the top of Google, can you trust them to get your business to the top?
By the way, if you want the to know the most important secret to being at the top of Google get in touch, we can't broadcast our IP to the world!

If a company contacts you and promises to boost your site to the top of Google, we recommend you put the phone down. A company that hasn't built your website does not have the ability to optimise your website for SEO and is therefore unable to fully deliver on these claims. Read more about Blue Web's SEO services.
