Infaweb In Edinburgh
In a thriving, business minded city like Edinburgh, the desire to gain competitive edge amongst similar companies is higher than ever thanks to search engine ranking and that marvellous thing called the internet. Yes, no matter how hard you try to escape it SEO is everywhere and therefore a service you can rely on and trust is more in demand now than ever before. Just think about it, how did you get to this page? Most people would have typed into Google SEO Edinburgh or something similar.
It’s not about who can shout the loudest or who has the most memorable, perhaps even bordering on outlandish website, it’s about your customers being able to find you through search terms, links and virtual means via the aid of what has come to be shortened to SEO in the techie realms of the business world and what is also commonly referred to a search engine optimisation.
You cannot rank for everything. It’s just not possible. That is why we work very closely with our clients getting to know the core foundations, values and goals of their businesses which we can then transform into a plan that will help achieve those goals and put one in the back of the net over the opposition.
Edinburgh SEO – The Lowdown
Picture this scenario if you will; it’s your first day at a new school and you are doing all you can to be noticed for the right reasons and by the right people. Google, Yahoo and Bing are those people. If you create the right impression they can open doors for you but if you try too hard or are just don’t quite make the grade then you are destined to spend the rest of your time in their shadows...
and for the ones who don’t like analogies...
Search engine optimisation is a method of helping improve your listings in the search engines (mainly Google, Yahoo and Bing). By improving your search engine rankings for words people are searching for the more traffic, and the more paying customers, you are likely to get.

Putting it into practice
Now here is the exciting part and when you might want to take notes - how to make your business and SEO a double act to be reckoned with. To do this, or at least set off on the right foot, there are some straightforward hints and tips that everyone with a website can and should be following and they include incorporating;
- A realistic and manageable amount of keywords into the website’s content, headers and tags

- Site navigation that does not require your name to be Amelia Earhart
- A good balance of text, images and videos

All this and more can be yours and is a mere consultation away...

Quality, that’s right up SEO’s street
Think of the search engines as old-school English professors; the sort that sport elbow pads and who are sticklers for quality and all things being grammatically correct, and you will see the link between being at the top of the class and top of the organic search engine results...
The search engines strive to have the best content and the best websites at the top of their results and use "quality" to determine which web pages get listed and which don’t. Just like your ABC was drummed into you at an early age, there are a few things to get right and remember from the outset and to make sure your site complies with...
- Validated code
- Well structured and written English
- A variety of media available to the user
- A well structured navigation
- Good website design
- Well structured pages
- One way links from quality websites and social networks
As time moves forward, so do the rules resulting in stricter guidelines and criteria being set by search engines in order to rank therefore it is vital you maintain your website and keep it updated.
We can come in at any stage of a project and do what is necessary to make sure you comply with these rules. And we don’t just do SEO work in Edinburgh but offer a UK wide service so welcome calls from anyone, anywhere.Onsite and Offsite - Mr & Mrs Optimisation
SEO is a two-fold project with onsite and offsite taking different paths but working both together and independently to meet at the same place...the search engine result.
Onsite is quite literally everything on your site including the site itself and basically what you’re in control of. It is however more complex than just the good quality content that makes sense and reads well, it also includes (take a deep breath here) code validation, meta data, header tags, site navigation, website design, images, alt text, keyword focus, grammar and spelling. At Infaweb we understand that some of these terms may be new to you, or to put it another way...alien! That’s why we offer a comprehensive review of your site before we make our recommendations.
Offsite on the other hand is how you are found through links to your site from other reputable websites and social media sites. In order to get noticed you must interact on social media channels (Twitter, YouTube, Facebook etc.) and have icon links from your site, build links and generate awareness of your site. Yup it’s a melting pot alright, but the one key ingredient and therefore the main thing to focus on from the point of view of the search engines and users is quality, quality, and quality.
So why use a company over in-house? (1 of 2)
Not every business out there will have the time, means or even inclination to spend hours researching the latest changes in search engine optimisation with which, as you will by know by now having got this far down the page, it’s vital to keep up to date.
As our business is to help your business we have the means and the inclination by the bucket load and can act as a guiding hand, a helping hand or a dictator (if that’s what you think you need?!) in order to put both our time and resources and yours to the best possible use to get results. It’s our expertise and we know when enough is enough, it’s tempting to overdo the keywords and links but just like a referee, the search engines will know and penalise you.
And why Use Infaweb as your SEO Agency (2 of 2)
Don’t just rely on our accolades and accreditations to make your mind up and don’t solely base your decision to choose us on the fact that we have been successful in elevating the search engine rankings for our Edinburgh based clients.
Because it’s not just our reliability that has seen us succeed and we are pretty sure our work and business ethics have only got us so far so maybe it’s when you combine all this with our professionalism and skill that you’ll understand why SMEs, large corporations, start up businesses and one man bands choose us over other agencies that may be able to compete on price but that cannot compete on service.
We believe in an ‘all or nothing’ strategy when it comes to your business. If we can’t give you our all then we may as well give you nothing (not something we recommend by the way). This ethical approach to helping your business succeed gives us the best possible starting point to deliver a sustainable, relevant and, most importantly, focused service. Because ultimately, we want to see your business get to the next level as much as you do...it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy knowing we have played a major part in that.
Therefore we encourage you to come and join us for a cuppa and a chat to see just exactly how we can help the search side of your business as well as many other aspects. Putting badly done or nonexistent SEO right can be costly so at Infaweb we want to develop a strategy to suit your individual needs whilst keeping costs down and getting you results.
We offer everything from a fully outsourced solution to flexible packages and can give support to in-house marketing campaigns and provide consultancy to help ongoing campaigns so please contact us with any enquiries at all, or to arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements.

Situated on the coast, the capital of Scotland has been enticing tourism and trade for centuries which has seen it become economically sound and a great place to invest in some home-grown talent. Benefitting from great links to the rest of Europe, Edinburgh has promising global scope at its fingertips.
With an approximate population of half a million comprising of an army of workers contributing to making Edinburgh the world influencer in business, arts, science and financial services it is today, it has become a target for worldwide interest making the requirement to ‘stand out from the crowd’ that much greater.
Infaweb Edinburgh knows this city and its businesses inside and out and therefore offers tailor made SEO packages to suit your specific requirements.
