SEO has changed drastically over the last few years, and one of the most dramatic shifts is the move away from keywords to topics. This is due to Google (and the other search engines) having a greater understanding of semantics — or the meaning of language.

Google Analytics is the most popular web analytics & reporting tool. Not only that but, since the introduction of Universal Analytics, you can now use any device connected to the internet to send data to GA using the ‘Measurement Protocol’. This includes point of sale (POS) systems, mobile apps and even coffee machines or fridges! Whilst GA natively tracks page views, sessions, bounce rates and other metrics, you need to implement some form of customisation to ensure that arguably the most important metric is being tracked – are people interested in buying your product or service?

Over recent years, one page website design has become an increasingly popular trend. Part of this is borne out of the fact that designing, creating and developing a one-page website is much quicker than for multiple page websites — they are much simpler to create than their more complex counterparts.

WordPress is commonly seen as the most widely used content management system (CMS) on the planet. WordPress was originally a “publishing platform” that was focused towards writers and bloggers. Out of the box, the CMS is pretty SEO friendly, but it’s not the only thing you need to perform well on search engines. Infact, just implementing a few changes on WordPress won’t get you to the top of the search engine results pages (SERPs) overnight. However, there are several things you can do to your blogs that may assist your website's search rankings. The aim of this article is to hopefully educate those who are relatively familiar with the CMS, so that when your blogs go live, they are as “optimised” as much as they possibly can be.
