Search engine optimisation (SEO) is a unique mix of marketing, usability and technology which can often cause confusion on how it is implemented across different organisations. An important part of your SEO strategy is getting the most out of your SEO dollars. This session will explain what your developers, designers, producers, content authors and marketers should all know about SEO to ensure you’re getting the maximum return on your SEO.
A lot of SEO work undertaken by external agencies offers common sense advice and basic web standards information – in these tough economic times, are you getting value for your money or just throwing it away while your in-house web team aren’t involved in your SEO strategy?
This session will give you the ground rules on setting up your SEO processes and systems within your organization to ensure that SEO is part of the day-to-day development and design of your websites. It will also cover when to bring in an external agency for SEO and what they should be utilised for to make sure you are getting the best value for money.
