Would you love to make more sales from your website?

Find out how to get more website visitors and increase your sales in this podcast with website optimisation expert Vicki Jakes.

Find out why your website content and the language you use is more important than using the right ‘keywords’ – and how to make Google really fall in love with you and show your content to a bigger audience.

Vicki shares simple, practical tips to get your website work harder for you. And the key things to consider when optimising your website to make it rank higher in search. PLUS why using Google Analytics to identify your best-performing content can help you save time creating new content.
