What you will learn from our SEO training course
Whether you seek guidance for local SEO campaigns, want to start ranking for national keywords, have your products seen organically, or want to rank internationally, these courses are for you. Once you have completed our SEO course, you will learn the following:
How Search Engines Work
Understanding how search engines work is the cornerstone of effective SEO. Search engines use complex algorithms to crawl, index, and rank web pages based on relevance and authority. Our course demystifies these algorithms, providing insights into how Google and other search engines parse and prioritise content.
Crawling and Indexing
The journey of a web page from creation to appearing in search results involves crawling and indexing. Search engines deploy bots to crawl the web, discovering and revisiting pages. Indexing is the process of adding these pages to a giant database. Our course dives deep into how you can make your website crawl-friendly and ensure proper indexing.
Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) have evolved, featuring not just organic listings but also ads, snippets, local business listings, and more. Understanding these features enables you to optimise your content to appear in these coveted spots.
SEO isn’t a one-off task; it’s a continuous process. We outline an effective SEO workflow, from research and implementation to monitoring and tweaking strategies.

Our course breaks down SEO into its key components: on-page, off-page, and technical SEO. Each area is critical and requires a specific set of skills and strategies, which our course comprehensively covers.
