Search Engine Optimisation

Search is still the number one way to find your audience online but the way it works is changing. It has broken free of its reputation as a super-techy black art. These days SEO is about how you create effective and engaging content.

Writers, editors and other content creators will get the most out of this course but it is also suitable for anyone working online who wants to take a more content-focused approach to SEO and to reach new audiences.
