5 SEO Tips for beginners. How to rank YOUR website in Google using my tips built up over 10+ years as a web designer. Whether you are a small business creating your own website, or a web designer/developer looking to learn how to make client websites rank, this video will help you learn how to audit your website!

Accessibility testing

The w3c validation tool that I use in this video helps you to check if anything is broken on your website, which is something that could be very detrimental to your search engine optimisation and overall Google ranking. While John Mueller, a senior webmaster trends analyst at Google says they do not use the tool to give ranking boosts, he does also agree it’s a really useful tool to check the health of your HTML code and to improve your accessibility. All great things to do for the overall quality and health of your site, and of course making sure images have alt tags is super important for SEO too!

“I worked with Hilary for a time and during that period I found her to be extremely helpful and articulate. Her work was of highest standard and I was also able to observe how she interacted with her clients. While providing a top class service she maintained friendly and helpful services with them, listened to what they wanted and made appropriate suggestions. Hilary also assisted me with my work and provides services to the local community at large. I have no hesitation in recommending Hilary for any work.”

Hilary at her Company Proximo Design created a webpage for me at Gourmet Burger Bistro this year. I wanted to get it up and running quickly and I could not have been more satisfied with the speed and quality of her results.
Best of luck in the future Hilary and I look forward to continuing our business relationship.
