- Hello and welcome to Analyzing Your Website to Improve SEO. I'm Peter Kent and I'll be teaching you what to look for on your website to increase your search engine optimization. When people go online to search for the sorts of products, services, or information you provide, they can find you or they can find your competitors. In this course, I'm going to help you understand a critical area of online marketing, how to connect with people through the search engines. I'll show you the components that you should definitely include in your website, and those you really want to stay away from.
And, if location is important to your business, I'll explain how local search results and local information can really help you grow. This course was designed to help you dig through the clutter to figure out what makes sense and what's important. So, let's get started with Analyzing Your Web Site to Improve SEO.
