Attracting website visitors - better results with SEO

10/04/2018 - 9am - 4.30pm - FREE

About the Event

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is all about providing search engines (primarily Google) with the signals required to rank your website high in search results for terms your potential customers use. This involves ensuring your website has the technical features required to be “search engine friendly”, understanding what the keywords are that people use to search for your type of business, writing web page content optimised for those keywords and then getting other websites to link back to yours. Whether you intend to undertake SEO yourself or employ an agency to help, this workshop is perfect to help you understand SEO best practices (and the SEO to avoid!)

NB – This is not a practical workshop and delegates are not required to bring a laptop computer.


Delegates who attend this workshop will gain an understanding of technical SEO, keyword research, on-page optimisation and link acquisition. This will include information on web development tasks to improve SEO performance and practical guidance on keyword research that informs content planning, the important parts of a web page for SEO, how to write for search engines and how to use content to get other sites to link to yours.

Am I eligible?

These workshops are available for businesses, partnerships, sole traders, and registered charities, with a trading address located within Greater Lincolnshire (North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire & Lincolnshire).

To access these workshops, your business must complete an SME enrolment form in order to check the business’s eligibility against the funding criteria. (The form will be sent to you on completion of an Eventbrite booking - if one has not already been completed and on file).

As this is a business support focused programme, rather than a skills programme, all workshop/masterclass places are limited to one delegate from each business to ensure we can support as many businesses as possible at each workshop.

Through Eventbrite you are requesting to book a place on a workshop/masterclass and this delegate place will be confirmed via email once the SME Form and eligibility have been checked.

As this is a fully funded business support programme it is delivered free of charge so its success is measured based on the number of businesses that are supported and the hours of support. The eligibility dictates a minimum threshold; therefore, each SME must commit to attend a minimum of two workshops/masterclasses to comply with the funding criteria.
