Online WordPress SEO Training Course Overview

Our Online WordPress SEO Training Course will boost your online presence by increasing quality traffic.

Even if you have outsourced your SEO, it is desirable to have some knowledge of what SEO is all about. In so doing, you would have a better sense of what should be delivered or speak more intelligibly with your provider. In fact, some people have saved money, since they were able to question certain aspects of their contracts and keep tabs on the deliverables.

Our experience has now shown that some people do not know what to expect from those contracted to do their SEO or what is involved. All they know is that they pay every month and hope for the best.

The course focus on on-page optimisation.

Before the end of the course, your website will be signed up to Google Analytics and Google Search Console. You must have your control panel (cPanel or KonsoleH) login details if you want to take us up on this offer.

The Online WordPress SEO Training Course is conducted online using Zoom.
