What is Search Engine Optimisation?

Search engine optimisation is optimising a website so that it ranks higher in search engines. In other words, so that your site shows up when your potential customers search for products, services or keywords relevant to what you do.

With 63,000 Google searches being made per second across the world and the average person carrying out 3-4 Google searches per day, SEO is key to getting your business in front of the right people. It should be a fundamental of any good digital marketing strategy.

SEO is made up of many different aspects. Search engines view websites differently to humans, so it’s all about making sure that sites like Google can see that your site is relevant and good quality. Broadly, Search Engine Optimisation can be divided into two categories: onsite and offsite SEO.

SEO Derby - Kumo Digital

The Two Categories of SEO

On-Site SEO

On-site SEO is all about making sure that your actual site is optimised for search engine crawlers: bots that go through the code of a site to determine its content, quality and relevance.

On-site can be split further: into technical and content. Technical SEO essentially makes sure that the code of the site is all correct and functioning so that search engines can access all the pages properly. Kumo’s technical SEO experts have years of experience in the field and can make all the necessary optimisations to your site.

Content is the other main element of on-site SEO. Because bots can only read text, and not images and graphics, having a good amount of written content on your site is paramount. This content also needs to be optimised to target the relevant keywords and fulfill other search engine criteria. Our team of SEO copywriters can craft the perfect content for your site.

Off-Site SEO

Off-site SEO is all about other websites that link to your site. In SEO, a link from another website is like a vote of confidence informing search engines that your site is high-quality and relevant.

However, not all links are equal. You want quality sites to link to yours, and there are various metrics that can be used to determine a site’s quality. You can also have bad links, such as masses of spammy links from low quality websites. These will actually cause search engines to look on your site less favourably.

Off-site therefore involves the removal of any bad links to your site and the creation of good links through a variety of measures such as digital PR and content marketing. At Kumo, we use a variety of different link building strategies to boost your site’s off-site metrics and help you rank higher.

Our Approach to SEO


We undertake both weekly and monthly reporting to help us keep a close eye on rankings and allow us to react quickly to any changes and developments. Our data and reports are always available to you so you can track your site’s SEO progress. Weekly reporting tracks the rankings of your site, whilst a monthly in-depth report analyses all site activity, including traffic and -if applicable- conversions over the last four weeks.


Research is an integral part of our SEO strategy as it allows us to deliver services which are tailored to you and your business. Thorough research is an ongoing process for our team, beginning with an initial audit of your website. Keyword research allows us to better reach your customer, whilst constant industry research helps us to create relevant content.


No SEO strategy is complete without great content. Which is why we have an expert team of content creators on hand to deliver the best possible content for your site. Working with you to understand your business and your consumer they will strive to create engaging content which speaks to your customer and boosts your search engine optimisation performance.

How Can SEO Help Your Business?

Most modern businesses have a website and therefore most businesses can benefit from SEO. Despite having a great product or service, if your website is not optimised for search engines, customers who could benefit from your product or services may not be able to find your business. Search Engine Optimisation works to increase the visibility of your site, enabling your business to grow.

However, SEO doesn’t just improve site visibility; there is a wide range of benefits to be gained by optimising your website for search engines. User experience will be improved, sales will increase and brand trust will be solidified, all helping to nurture and develop your business.

Increase Relevant Traffic

Perhaps your website is already getting a fair amount of traffic but sales remain low. The solution could lie in SEO. High traffic is not much good if the users are not interested in your product or services. Search Engine Optimisation works to specifically attract your target consumers, to ensure that visitors to your site are more likely to become customers.

As SEO enables you to target your audience more effectively, all visitors to your site will be those who are actively looking for the service you provide. By increasing the amount of relevant traffic, sales will increase, allowing your business to flourish.

Improve Brand Visibility

Your business could be the best in its field, however if it is not visible to customers they simply won’t know how they could benefit from it. SEO helps to build brand awareness by ensuring that your site gets seen by your target customers.

Our specialist team will work to improve how your site ranks in search engine results to ensure that it is visible to potential customers. The SEO process will even allow you to reach new audiences by building trust worthy links from other relevant sites.

Drive Sales & Increase Leads

As your SEO process develops, more relevant traffic will arrive at your website. This will naturally help to drive sales and increase leads, as the users of your site will be directly searching for the services that you can provide.

Increased sales will also be encouraged as user experience is continually improved. Faster loading websites with helpful content will keep customers on-site for longer and increase the chances of a conversion. Further site improvements such as optimisation for mobile usage will also encourage visitor engagement, supporting the chance of a sale.

Improve Trust in You and Your Business

One of the most crucial aims for any business should be to gain consumers’ trust. Doing so will not only help to boost sales, but ensure that customers return time and time again.

SEO helps to improve trust by increasing your search engine ranking. As your site begins to appear higher in the SERPs, potential customers will have greater trust in your brand. By keeping content fresh and up-to-date, it will also be clear to users that your site is regularly updated, encouraging them to put greater trust in your business. Links built from other trustworthy sites will also increase trust in your site, as well as your domain metrics.
