Back in 1990, the very first search engine was born. Christened Archie (Archive without the "V" ingenious, right!), it made digital history. It was the brainchild of a university student named Alan Emtage. As a systems administrator, Emtage was tasked with finding software for other students and faculty members To save time searching across the internet, he wrote some code to do it for him. This code later became one of the most influential inventions of the digital revolution

Fast forward eight years, and Google was born

WHAT IS SEO? OPTIMISING YOUR WEBSITE

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. It is the art and science of matching your information, products and services with what people search for online. For example, if you type "best coffee machine" into Google, who comes up at the top of organic search results? How did they get there? Simple, they've created relevant, up to date content that addresses the search query.

SEO is the process of optimising your website to rank higher in search engine results pages, and don't worry; your website doesn't have to be the Mona Lisa of websites to do so! SEO also ensures that you are found when people are looking for something specific, such as " car valet near me "

BUT DOES IT WORK FOR SMALL BUSINESSES? NO

BUDGETS REQUIRED

You might ask yourself, "but does it work for small businesses?".

With SEO being the backbone of online visibility, small businesses should certainly invest in it. Unlike advertising, it doesn't require large budgets or a big creative team. It's aimed at sustainable long term growth just what the doctor ordered.

Throughout this module, we will show you how to implement strategies to ensure your business or start up remains relevant in search engine results. By focusing on specific techniques, you will work your way to the top faster than you can say, Search Engine Optimisation!
