search engine optimisation - SEO

If you have a website, then you want it to be found and, in order to do so, you need to appear high on the results of search engines like Google. Search engine optimisation helps your site achieve this by focusing on the search terms with which you want customers to find you. There are many methods used in SEO, and here at Mamu Computing we use a combination of these, starting with a thorough combing of your site to check for any problems, such as missing page descriptions and links that don't go anywhere. Following a consultation we can assess your website's current position and where you see it going, we will then provide you with a proposal with no obligation to commit. All SEO proposals will include website analytics as they are essential for monitoring your website's growth.

If you want to see a greater number of enquiries from your website then send us an email with a link to your site and a few details about yourself, or alternatively give us a call to discuss it.
