SEO - Search Engine Optimisation
Increasing your web site traffic may increase your online and offline sales. Search Engine Optimization and marketing helps drive targeted traffic to your website while maximizing your return of investment and increase online sales by ensuring high natural search engine page results using your chosen keyphrases and words. Website traffic can affect your website position in search engines and help reinforce your status as an industry leader in your market
I like to ensure a website is 'search engine friendly', and is packed full of the right 'keyphrase rich' content. Using CSS, you can organize your code so the search engines see your real content first regardless of where it appears on the page. search engines use “top down” logic in looking at web pages. They look at your code, not the visual display that users see. Search engines dont care about beautiful sites with lovely graphics, and if your target market cant find you either, neither will they! Search engines care about relevant content and links, without them your site is stagnant.
Why is it so important?
Optimising your site is important because of the trends of consumers and prospects today. Finding information, products and services via the internet has been increasing year in year out, so by ensuring your site can be found, opens your company to an ever increasing market.
My optimisation uses only ethical methods, to gain the results you are searching for, and to ensure you stay there. I target the main search engines starting with Google then Yahoo and MSN.
Targeting keyphrases and words that users are actually typing into search engines.
Building these keywords and phrases into your site from meta tags to h1 tags, through to page titles and content.
Making sure your site uses efficient html that spiders can sift through easiliy and quickly.
Creating sites that other site owners want to link too.
Relevant links from an array of sources to ensure permanent placing in google.
Originally from oxford, i now live and work in London. I have held several exhibitions of my artwork and currently have art displayed in the uk, abroad and am currently exhibiting in the cornerstone art centre, Didcot, Oxford.
I constantly push to develop my style and I frequently look at other painter's work; historical, modern and contemporary, I enjoy doing this and it feeds my own practice. I look at paintings from the Tate Galleries, local commercial galleries in london or student degree shows. These viewings contantly deliver something exciting and inspirational for me. I have an ongoing internal dialogue with a wide range of painters work. It’s a complex process and I aim for clarity
I want my paintings to be generous and to engage the viewer. I’ve been painting ever since i can remember and knew from an early age that art was going to be a major influence in my life. I had early schooling at Banbury Art School and then studied further in Art and Design at Middlesex University where i went on to achieve a BA Hons degree and become a graduate in Interior architecture.
I have lived and travelled for several years across Europe and China, which influenced my style greatly. The rolling landscapes and vibrant colours inspired my eye to see the world in an increasingly developing creative manner which led to an important productive phase of my artistic life.
I am now working as a multimedia designer in London where i also paint for leisure and commissioned work. Inspired by Londons rich diversity in colour and culture i continually attempt to look through the grey of the city and strive to bring vivacity to my canvases that i feel speak so loudly for my being.
