SEO and Social SEO for business

SEO for business, or Search Engine Optimisation is the ability for you to get found in the search engines when people are looking for you.

There used to be lots of “black magic” and tricks to SEO but Google has stopped all of this and basically has said the key to being found on-line is to create fresh, unique and relevant content for your website and you will be fine.

Content Creation

Content creation is the key to being found on-line! And as a restaurant, you have amazing content and imagery to share.

The chefs are serving up tantalising dishes, atmosphere is your middle name and candid shots and “selfies” from patrons all contribute to creating a digital persona to drive customers to your door.

Although Social Media is critical to your on-line success, it is extremely important to “build your business on your own real estate” ie your website – not the “rented land” of Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and other social platforms.

Social platforms make it easy for people to find out about you, and then you should direct them to your website to check out the latest about your menus, upcoming events, latest news etc.
