About the course:

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is often about making small modifications to parts of your website. When viewed individually, these changes might seem like incremental improvements, but when combined with other optimisations, they could have a noticeable impact on your site’s user experience and performance in organic search results. Now, SEO is not a new concept. It has been one of the most important ways to establish a strong presence and visibility on search engines for more than 20 years. However, the best practices that worked 15, 10 or even 5 years ago are no longer as effective as they once were because things change. While this has generated rumours that SEO is dead, these reports are greatly exaggerated. SEO is alive and kicking. It has just developed a whole new set of best practices. So, this course will help you design a winning SEO game plan – whether you are a rookie or a veteran player.
