Ever wondered what meta-keywords were for?

Keywords have traditionally meant:

1. Words or phrases which people type in to search engines in order to find your website.

2. The keywords meta-tag, a hidden part of your web page which lists a number of keywords (in the hope that search engines will read them and use them to put your website first in the list as a response to people searching using those keywords).

In actual fact, search engines don't think much of keyword meta-tags. Read about why on our blog:

Do you need Fiscal Services?

One of our recent website launches has been the fiscalservices.co.uk website, for company Fiscal Business Services. Fiscal works to help its clients with, among other things, book-keeping, management acccounts, and payroll.  MD Ali Wiltshire says:

Marcus and the team were really helpful in explaining how the website content management system worked. I'm now editing all of my own content and pictures, and the website structure has really helped me put my message across.
