Our beginners level course provides an excellent introduction to SEO, covering all of the basic knowledge and fundamental techniques needed to run a local search campaign.

As well as the basics of SEO we'll look at other important considerations for local search including local ranking factors, optimising local store pages, Google My Business, local Schema, and building local links and citations.

This course is available for individual delegates at our training centre in The Shard, London, or online via virtual classroom. We also offer private training, online, or at a location of your choice.

Brilliant course! In depth, yet a great introduction to anyone who wants to get to grips with SEO. Was also a great refresher too! The trainer was experienced and extremely knowledgeable on the subject, totally engaging and interacted with all the participants equally, relating aspects to individuals so that they felt more relevant.
