Every update to Google and other search algorithms brings new ways of looking at websites - and things which didn’t exist a few years ago, such as social media indicators, are given relatively high importance in their impact on your SEO and rankings.

It’s critical for recruiters to build a healthy content profile on their websites, spread out over months - ideally years - as this is a key factor that Google evaluates when looking at your site.  

 

Improving your SEO

The techniques of SEO are still valid - as long as you consider why people are looking for something, rather than just what they’re searching for. A good content strategy will answer people’s needs rather than deliver simple facts.

Most recruitment businesses are looking to improve their SEO performance as it remains one of the most important aspects of attracting candidates and clients to their website.

 ​

Get your content right
