What is Search Engine optimisation?

Search Engine Optimization is the action of adjusting various criteria on your website such as content, meta tags and URLs etc., so that your website can rank better on major search engines and so that search engines can crawl your site correctly. Essentially it is optimizing your website so that it comes up on the first three pages of major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, MSN

What are Search Engine Submissions?
The process of adding your website in the line to be crawled by the spiders used by a search engine . We will optimize your website for all the major search engines by submitting your website, manually . We do NOT use a program to do this function as this is often seen as spam by the spiders and can lead to your site being “blacklisted” by Google. We have over 200 search engines and directories worldwide that we submit each client to.

What is Link Checking?

Ever looked for something on the internet, found it at last, clicked to open the site and all you get is 404 error? That is a broken link.
