Optimising a site, so that it places well for the chosen search terms takes considerable time. Personally, I always start with planning, with questions like: which google searches do you want to do well in? Locally or globally? What social platforms do you users use? These are a few questions for just about anybody wanting to optimise a site. First, decide which search phrases you want to target, and then ensure that your site does well for these phrases by writing good content around them.
