Introduction to Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Tue 29 Jun 2021


Search engine optimisation (SEO) for beginners. SEO 'is the process of improving a website or web page so it increases organic traffic quality and quantity from search engines' (Webopedia).

Put simply, the goal of using SEO tactics, for many web editors across the University, is to help users find the content that they are looking for when they use a search engine. In practice, this means a webpage appears as high up the list of relevant search results as possible. To do this, content editors need to have a basic understanding of how search engines work and what users are searching for.

This session will include a potted history of SEO and practical tips to use on your webpages. Attendees will also be able to ask questions.

The session will begin with a quick update from the Digital Presence Programme.

Target audience
  • University and affiliated staff who create or edit web content
  • Members of the content community
