WHO IS IT FOR?
Any WordPress website owner; from small businesses to multinational enterprise. This specialist WordPress SEO course is suitable for non-technical as well as technical marketing executives who own accountability for the company’s organic search footprint. It is designed to show you, using live demonstrations, the process of search engine optimisation on a WordPress website and to teach you optimal ways to configure your WordPress website for maximum natural (unpaid) placement performance on Google and other search engines. A basic awareness of what SEO is would be helpful but is not necessary if you advise the course leader in advance.
FORMAT & DOCUMENTATION:
This two-morning WordPress SEO course is a small-group (typically from 3 up to maximum of 8 people) interactive workshop featuring live walk-throughs of specific WordPress organic search engine optimisation techniques, supported with slides and interactive discussion. A download link for supporting slides and other reference materials used during the workshop will be emailed to participants after the course.
LEVERAGING WORDPRESS SEO FOR GOOGLE RANKING
WordPress has become the CMS (Content Management System) of choice for millions of websites (not just bloggers!) around the world. When configured correctly, WordPress offers SEO capabilities that are significantly superior to, and easier to execute, than many of its high-cost enterprise-class competitors.
This 2 x half-day WordPress SEO course gives you the opportunity to experience a live walk-through of the physical process of search-optimising a WordPress website. The small group size means that the workshop is highly interactive with a “question as you go” ethos from beginning to end. You will leave each workshop with confidence in the knowledge that you only need to replicate the process you have just experienced to make a significant difference to your company’s organic search footprint.
