SEO

Simply put, search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the quality and volume of web traffic to a website by employing a series of proven SEO techniques that help a website achieve a higher ranking with the major search engines when certain keywords and phrases are put in the search field.

Google Analyitics

Analyitics is probably one of the most powerful Google tools that you can use for your business. You can learn so much about your website’s visitors & it will give you key insights into how your website is searched & performing. No website owner should be running a business without Google Analytics.

Google Webmaster Tools

Google Webmaster Tools is another Google product that puts a large amount of valuable data at your fingertips. If you have already set up your website with Google Analytics, you can easily add it to Google Webmaster Tools to start learning about your sites health, traffic, configuration & optimization.

Google Ad's

If you’re not getting good enough traction with organic search traffic, then you might want to consider a paid search campaign using Google AdWords.

Google Adsense

Ever created a niche website for linking purposes, affiliate marketing, content development, or another reason that never panned out? If the website gets even a moderate amount of traffic, and you have no other use for it for the time being, why not earn a little income off of it using Google AdSense.

Google Insight

Google Insights allows you to search for keywords to see their trends over time. This way, you can see whether a keyword is gaining in popularity, see worldwide search trends over the course of a year to find popular months or seasons for a search, see search volume by region, and find a list of top ten related searches and rising searches.

Google Places

Want your local business to show up before organic search results? For some keywords, it can thanks to Google Places. We will add your listing on Google Places, complete your profile, add photos & videos, and encourage reviews so that your business will make it to the first page of search results.

Page Speed

As the name would suggest, website page speed is how long it takes for your website to load. These days having a slow website can push you down the search engine result rankings. Google and many other search engine providers want to return search results which will provide users with the best search result experience. With the increase in the number of smartphone and tablet devices being used today to search the web, having a slow website is inexcusable. Website Care can run an Audit on your site to see how you score and offer advice on how to increase page speed.

Content Delivery Network

A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers across the Internet. The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance. CDNs serve a large fraction of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social networks. Website Care can advise you as to whether a CDN is right for your website.

Cache

Web cache is a mechanism for the temporary storage (caching) of web documents, such as HTML pages and images, to reduce bandwidth usage, server load, and perceived lag. WordPress websites take slightly longer to load than a static HTML website as they require PHP files to communicate with a database server-side in order for users to see your website in their browser. By caching your website you can decrease load time and make your website load by up to 10 times faster than without caching.

Hosting / Migration

Looking at changing your host provider? This will require moving your website files and database. This can be a daunting task. Website Care have the experience and good working relationships with many of the top hosting companies in Ireland and the UK to make this a smooth process.
