Repost: Some thoughts on Search Engine Optimisation

We had posted this article regarding SEO a while ago, yet it still seems relevant considering the amount of questions we are getting from people who want to know how this all works. Therefore we are reposting an updated version here

*********************************

Search engines have come a long way since the early days of the Internet. What would the world be without Google?  When was the last time you opened (yes, physically opened!) a Yellow Pages Directory? I don’t know about you but I rely on search engines every day.

So it seams very logical that all businesses owning a website are striving to have to be found on top of the search engine’s search results listing – or at least on the first 1-3 pages. And there are all sorts of providers on the market who promise to get you there.
