If you own or run a business, or you’re a digital marketing professional with responsibility for an organization’s online presence and digital sales revenue, this course can help you understand how better to get in front of your target audience.

The course is one of a range of business skills courses that we offer.

SEO course: what is covered?

This SEO course is designed to give you a thorough understanding of search engine optimisation for business.

As well as the fundamentals of how Google works (90% of all searches in the UK are done on Google), you will also learn proven principles to help secure better search engine rankings for key search terms that are beneficial to your business.

After a broad introduction to SEO in module one, the focus switches to the practice of link building (getting other websites to link to your website).

You’ll learn about why this is important, how it helps to ‘signal’ to Google that your own webpage is high quality, and in turn how that helps to elevate you higher up the search engine results pages (SERPs).

Module three switches to on-site SEO, such as headers, page titles and meta data, before module four assesses the role social media can play in successfully increasing your SEO performance.

The final two modules cover local search and pay-per-click advertising, both of which can pay particular dividends to businesses using their website to drive commercial performance.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
