What is on-site optimisation? Simply this marketing service we provide is the process we use to make your website appeal to real people and search engines. We will review and make improvements to the visual appeal of your site as well as making sure the technical set up behind the scenes is all structured correctly. These two aspects are very different as a search engine can’t see if your site design looks good or has cracking content they see your website with a technical view whereas real people look at design, styling content, the value of products and services. Both very different but both must be done well to have a successful website.
On-site optimisation becomes the crucial building blocks that off-site optimisation then builds on. Some of the tasks we would look at for your on-site optimisation are :- adding keywords to URLs, titles, meta descriptions, header and alt tags, refreshing page titles and descriptions, improve content and readability, look at site loading speed in different browsers and screen sizes, look at the sites inbound links, make sure the call to actions are in the best positions, fix any broken links and remove unnecessary links as well as removing any duplicate content there may be, make sure social media buttons are working, we would also set up google analytics and search console if needed.
The functions/process may change slightly from site to site however the main principles stay the same. We will fully report on what we have done and going forward will advise on what will need to be done when some functions will not need to be looked at again however others will need to be reviewed on a regular basis. We can either show you how or can manage that for you.
We have found that many newly designed websites haven’t been correctly optimised. We always ensure our newly built sites are fully optimised in the correct manner to give the best results possible, we have our own SEO specialist who works on all our developments.
Once your website is looking super-duper and all up to scratch, this is when we can look at Off-site optimisation for you. Off-site optimisation is about promoting your content and encouraging traffic to your site one of the most common ways to do this is through social media marketing which may include links to current blog posts. Off-site optimisation is about actions that are taken outside your own website which affect your SEO and ranking. It’s about building trust and improving the user’s view of your site be that through relevance, authority or popularity. We get this to work by getting other reputable people, sites or pages to link to or promote your website which builds trust In your website, product or service.
The benefits of off page optimisation are:
More rankings I search engine page results this will, in turn, will help you attract more traffic.
More exposure which in turn gives you more clicks, more visits, more links and more mentions on social.
Outreach & Backlinking
Backlinks are still the cornerstone of Googles algorithm. Google uses backlinks to identify the authority of a given web page for a particular key word or phrase. Without backlinks most SEO campaigns will fall short of the mark. We can tailor our ‘offsite’ ethical linkbuilding packages to match your aims and search ambitions. They come with caveats though, SEO is a long game, not a quick fix and should always be looked at in that light.
Selling products is key and can be very profitable if done correctly. It doesn’t matter if you are a long-established e-commerce company or if you are just starting out in online sales. Our E-commerce SEO services will help your company find new opportunities to make more money and increase new business, as well as potentially generating more sales from your current customers.

We will also look at product optimisation, and your conversion rate optimisation as well as your store’s design it must be easy to navigate and use as well as looking professional and safe to use.
For shoppers trusting an e-commerce site and knowing that their details are always secure and safe is one of the most important factors in the initial decision-making process to purchase from a site.
Google Algorithm Updates
What is the Google algorithm? we hear you say… Simply it’s a set of established rules that google use, they are followed strictly by software and it helps google choose the most relevant content in the search results. Google search algorithms are very dynamic and as a result search results are the most relevant and appropriate based on the user’s search.
Googles Algorithms are constantly evolving, sometimes Google make changes 500 – 600 times per year, granted some of these will only be minor changes but its major changes which in the past have included Google Panda and Google Penguin massively affected search engine results. So, this just means keeping up to date and on top of these is essential from a visibility point of view. Don’t panic about this though we are here to help and can manage these changes for you.

“At 1st Mortgage Services we were at a cross roads with our business, we knew we needed to adopt Digital Marketing into the business but didn’t have a clue on how to do it! Stephen recommended we started with the website & built a fantastic one at that. Once this was in place we were able to plan a marketing strategy for our business for 2019. We are not a big enough business to have our own in house Marketing team but we now feel like we have one with the support of Click Through Digital Ltd. Its such a relief to be able to bounce our ideas off the professionals there and that they can then implement our ideas and put them into action. We can highly recommend Click Through Digital Ltd to support you with your business marketing needs – as you may not have the time to develop them because of actually doing your day to day business.
