Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) can be the difference between a successful website and one that’s falling behind its competition. It’s a hugely underestimated ‘website superpower’ that can help you achieve your marketing goals without relying on expensive digital advertising.
Put simply; our SEO services help people find your website. We rely on best-practice techniques and tools, as well as years of experience. No shortcuts or short-term thinking. No ‘black hat’ techniques like link buying. Just smart work that pays off to help you rank increasingly higher over time, generating visitors who are ready to buy or enquire.

Our tried and tested process
We deliver much more than code. Our website development process ensures we completely understand your requirements and your expectations of us. We keep you involved and informed every step of the way until your development work is fully tested and ready for release. And we’ll be there to support you as a long-term partner in whatever way you need.
A chance to find out more about you and your customers. And for you to get to know us a bit. We’ll cover everything from requirements to release dates.
A detailed plan for delivering the development work you need. This sets out expectations in terms of what we will provide and when – and what we’ll need from you.
We plan the development work into two-week sprints. We share this with you so we’re always on the same page before a line of code is written, and throughout the project.
Turning ideas into reality, we build your new features, new website or new content management system. We can help you develop your design and content too.
Once we receive your sign-off, we prepare your website for going live to the world. It’s often the most anticipated part of the process – but it’s just the beginning.

How do we optimise websites?
Search engines like Google want to provide their users with the best possible experience. They want them to find websites that are well-built, load fast on any device and contain quality content that answers the searcher’s question.
We don’t want to give away all of our secret formulae, so here are just some examples of how we can help you improve your website’s SEO
We focus on your audience
We build a picture of your target audience to develop an understanding of who they are and what they search for, and what content would help them find you.
We run a detailed technical audit on your website and recommend fixes. We can reveal issues that could harm your search engine rankings like issues with speed, usability, or mobile-friendliness.
Who ranks on the first page of search engines like Google for the terms most relevant for your business? We perform a detailed analysis of competing websites.
Each piece of content should have a reason for being there – a user story. We help you create important ‘cornerstone content’ as part of a long-term content plan. We optimise your existing content so it’s more relevant to your visitors.
Google uses links to measure the authority of website content. We optimise your website’s hierarchy and backlinks. Lots of relevant sites linking to you and sending interested people your way is a good thing for you and a positive signal for Google and other search engines.
The next big thing to hit the SEO world is the increasing influence of the user experience on how search engines rank websites. Happy users means higher rankings.
For businesses where physical location is important, we spend time optimising your profiles on map tools, local directories, and through services like Google My Business.
What do customers say
about our websites?
“Steven and his team have really helped us to achieve our goals. As an award winning family business centre, we needed a website to optimise our position and offer more functionality to the family business community. Steven and his team added value to the proposition and we are delighted with the outcome that has really reinforced our global position as experts in what we do. We have also worked with the team on two other platforms, both of which have exceeded our expectations which are down to their understanding of what they can do and turning our ideas into reality.”
Steven and team have been brilliant at getting our website migrated, redesigned, and up and running, as well as offering advice on various topics including networking, servers, and general IT management. I look forward to dealing with such a friendly and local business for a long time. Highly recommended!
A strange life event highlighted IHTTP to me as a company, one of those “every cloud…” moments really! Steven and his team are a pleasure to work with. They are keen and enthusiastic, even towards the more tedious tasks within website development. I had a few, fairly particular, ideas of what I wanted and the guys really brought these to life for me and then some! The result has been an aesthetically pleasing, informative and downright impressive website. Exactly what I wanted and my company needed! Thanks Chaps!
