Copy is responsible for  60 to 70%  of a sites SEO performance. Be honest ... do you know how to achieve consistent results?

Is SEO dead?

Why am I asking this question? Well, if you hang around SEO circles as much as I do, you’ll hear it all of the time. 

I’m connected with hundreds of SEOs on Twitter, so I asked their opinion, and a vast amount chose to say that SEO is changing. 

However, SEO has changed, of that I’m certain. It’s become more about content that satisfies the audience than including keywords on pages. But how does Google evaluate that today? And what processes will help?

That’s what we’re here to discover.

Course Content

Introduction
Basics
User Experience for Content and Articles
What to write
On page SEO
Links
Putting it all together and examples

This  isn't an "SEO tricks"  course.

It's all of the essentials that you should be doing in order to produce the best content for Google, and getting the most back from it.

What will you need?

Computer & internet connection

You’ll need a computer or tablet capable of displaying a video. I don’t recommend viewing it on mobile. You’ll also need a stable internet connection capable of speeds which would be usable for full screen video. 

Keyword data tool

Most of the keyword data for the course is generated using SEMrush. There are alternatives, and these are also discussed. 

If you’d like to access the tool yourself, I’ve arranged a 14 day free trial (normally 7 days) in order to allow you to get through the course with SEMrush and use it to get your own data. If you decide to carry on with a subscription afterwards, I will make affiliate revenue, but there’s no requirement to do so and it will not affect the price you pay to SEMrush. I’ve linked to this offer inside the course too.


Simple to follow;  packed full of actionable tips 

I've taught Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and User Experience (UX) to many people, and they all learned most effectively when the training used a combination of examples and theory.

That's the premise behind all of my training.

What our students say

There was so much I didn't know about SEO from a copywriters perspective, but now I feel confident telling my clients "No, that's not the right way to do it".
