Seriously though, Bedford is a pretty lively business town and near enough to London to be busier than other towns and counties in terms of web design Bedford or SEO BedfordSo I thought I would start by have a quick recap on what words there are in Google-land that might be useful to a local business…mine in this case!  Obviously we want to pick search terms that people actually search for so here’s 4 for you:

Web design Bedfordshire

Only 650,000 competing web pages when I had a quick look in Google at one of the top keywords below.  That might sound like a lot but seriously, it isn’t – it wouldn’t take much to be reasonably highly rankede fairly quickly for them – maybe within a month…  What does it take?  Read on…

So, having chosen your target keywords, you just need to start creating web site design pages that are focussed around these targets.  Google likes to see what appears to be a vessel of specific knowledge, in an ideal World for each specific keyword.  Hey, if you only have a few target search terms then you might as well do precisely that:  design each website page around its own term – images, title, description, alt text, meta data, URL…

Hertfordshire is the county of my birth!  Now I have an SEO company that is just on the doorstep in Cambridge, lets have a look at SEO Hertfordshire…  Luckily for any SEO companies out there in Herts, there are two big advantages; not much competition and very few worthwhile keywords to target.  The initial task is to isolate the right target keywords or search terms; you can do this using a number of free or pay-for tools, try:  https://adwords.google.co.uk/select/KeywordToolExternal

SEO Herts

SEO Hertfordshire and SEO Herts are the only two monthly traffic-producing search terms around search engine optimisation and Herts!  There’s not much traffic but there IS traffic and lets face it its focussed, and that’s the point; you want QUALIFIED traffic, not loads of unqualified traffic; There’s no point in sending people interested in handbags to your cycling website…is there?! ;-)
Here’s some decent tips for improving your local SEO Hertfordshire using Google profile in YouTube:

There are plenty of other places where you can add your own profile, from Amazon to Buzz to Twitter and they all give you an opportunity to get your web site URL and target keywords out there.

If you want any more useful information then you can jolly well pay for it, so call us today at ISVirtual on 0845 095 9000

SEO Bury

SEO Bury

ISVirtual are a new force in SEO with over 30 man years of experience so if you need localised, qualified traffic then you need to talk to us.

From the road Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk looks like a bit of a grim proposition but actually, when you get into the City of Bury is packed full of history; a ruined Abbey that’s partly been converted into houses, with the Abbey walls permeating through the buildings…weird, like a sort of ancient stone fungus has caught hold!  There’s an almost-new looking cathedral and beautiful churches stretching back to Roman times together with really pretty houses along cobbled streets…a real surprise!

Bury St Edmunds, Abbey Ruins, Suffolk, England

There’s certainly plenty of businesses around and increasingly they need to access the web to gain more sales leads.  To take what we do; SEO Bury is the only search term in or around Bury that has any traffic at all.

Website design Cambridge

Web Cambridge

Being one of the most famous university cities in England; the home of Sir Isaac Newton, Oliver Cromwell, John Major, Stephen Hawking and Douglas Adams to name a few, you would expect the web Cambridge to be somewhat sophisticated… To be honest, on the whole, Cambridge websites are often pretty amateur and not very well SEO’d it would seem.  Obviously there is an incredibly lively scene in music, the Arts, IT, pharmaceuticals (?!), programming, wine, beer…everything?  Its hard to find specific events and social websites dedicated to Cambridge apart from the bars, clubs and mainstream cinemas.

What we need to do is inject a bit more web savviness into website design Cambridge and a bit of genuinely useful SEO Cambridge!

Website design Cambridge

As an example if we just take the top Google search terms that are to do with web site design Cambridge, that is, the top/only keywords that actually HAVE monthly search volume.  So so many companies (some of them SEO companies and many of them web design companies) make the same classic mistake of failing to assess the search terms against actual monthly search volume – rather, they guess what the top terms might be and only look at the number of pages competing in Google, which tells you simply the volume of competition and not the quality.  Remember;
What’s the point of being #1 in Google for a search term that no one’s searching for?
So these are 3 of the top 5 search terms for web site design Cambridge:
  • web site design Cambridge
  • website design Cambridgeshire
  • web design in Cambridge

Web development Cambridge

What web development in Cambridge seems to need is actually two things;

1. SEO Cambridge

2. Quality web site design Cambridge

The technical development IS there but its wrapped up in often horrid design and very often ineffective search engine optimisation.  And don’t be fooled into thinking that AdWords would work if SEO doesn’t – only if you have the right keywords WITH actual monthly search volume.

Having had a look around for ‘web designers East Sussex‘ I thought we’d have a look at ‘web designer West Sussex‘, well it seems fair!  Funnily enough the picture is very similar although there seems to be slightly more activity in West Sussex than there is in East Sussex…go figure…maybe just broaden it to Sussex?

Anyhow, if you look at the amount of monthly search traffic for web designer West Sussex and web designers West Sussex you get around 110 and 70 searches per month in Google.co.uk.  Not a huge volume but if you get to number one, for most web site designers that could easily fulfil most of your lead generation needs I suspect.

Web designers are often quite a solitary bunch, hunched over their little Mac’s fiddling with code and maybe missing some essential truths:
.
What’s the point in a web site if it doesn’t improve your bottom line?
.
Its all very well having a beautiful looking piece of online design but if no one finds it, then design is all it is…  You know what’s coming next; what you need is a web site that is designed to get you traffic, traffic that is pre-qualified to be interested in what you sell.  What you need is a web site design company that truly understands the purpose of a web site and how to achieve this purpose.
.
What you need is ISVirtual to carry out some serious localised SEO like this; SEO Cambridge ;-)

Useful SEO tip for West Sussex: Who has the biggest video website on the web?  That’s right, Google…YouTube.  What would happen if you had a backlink from YouTube?  Would Google like that?  Oh yes it would, so why not create one?  Just add a YouTube video about your search term, in this case West Sussex and embed it into your web page…

There are actually only around 70 to 90 searches a month in Google and that’s including all territories that use English language, so not just UK.  If you want to increase your opportunities via SEO then you are going to have to be a little more broad, maybe just use Sussex rather then East Sussex?  Now you’re got access to around 8,000 monthly searches but of course you’ve got more competition.  Not that much though and if you know what you’re doing or you know a company like ISVirtual you can quickly dominate this niche search market and get your sales leads flowing!

If you need free advice or a quote or just a chat because its lonely in East Sussex then give us a call and ask for Baz 0845 095 9000

TIP:  If you want to improve your rankings for a specific target search term one of the best ways to do this is to shoot or create a digital video, (for instance on East Sussex), transcode it for YouTube, add your East Sussex meta data, embed it into your web designers web page and that acts as a backlink from one of the most popular websites in the World…

SEO Ipswich

Web Ipswich

I remember going through Suffolk to Ipswich, under the wonderful Orwell Bridge and on to Pin Mill for one of the most memorable sailing trips in my life when I was a kid.  Little did I know that 30 years later I would be running an web company near Ipswich that delivers SEO and web site design.  ISVirtual have only been around for about 8 months but we have already created some SEO and web site design impact around Suffolk and Norfolk.

Google Ipswich

If you Google Ipswich for  ’seo ipswich‘ you’ll get plenty of competing pages and if you use a keyword tool such as Google’s external AdWords tool, you will find out that not all search terms are equal – below are the only Ipswich search terms for Search Engine Optimisation, SEO, internet marketing or Google that I could find actual monthly search volume for in Google.co.uk for the web Ipswich;

  1. SEO Ipswich
  2. web Ipswich
  3. Google Ipswich
They are also in the order of volume, so 1 has the most searches per month and 3 has the least searches per month.  If you want to dominate the search market in Google Ipswich or around Suffolk then you are going to have to choose your keywords carefully and be a little more canny regarding your keyword research – there are more search terms that are worth targeting out there but I’ll leave you to find them…not as easy as you might think!

Useful piece of SEO Ipswich advice: Make a YouTube video about web Ipswich and add your target search terms to the meta data, then embed the YouTube video into your website…

  2. web development Essex
  3. web services Essex
  4. web developer Essex

These 5 search terms are the only ones that we could find that are worth any SEO company in Essex using in a search engine optimisation campaign.  These search terms are also ranked here from 1 to 5 in order of monthly search volume, from around 12,000 searches a month to around 90 searches a month.  Web services in Essex and generally, web development and web designers in Essex are obviously in demand and have a lot of great skills and examples of web development and web design work.  There is much more variation in quality and creativity in Essex than pretty much any other county we have looked at here…
