As regular readers know, I am a trainer on the Getting Irish Business Online initiative. This offers the opportunity for sole traders and SMEs who don’t have a website to build and publish a website at no cost for the first year. As you build a website you need to take cognisance of Search Engine Optimisation. During our training workshops we do not have too much time to discuss SEO. When I deliver the programme I quickly discuss four slides to introduce the topic and explain how you can add content to your site and be mindful of SEO. A follow up course on SEO and Google Adwords is being considered. This blogpost will provide my views on this topic and hopefully will stimulate some discussion.
Getting Irish Business Online is a partnership between Google, Blacknight Internet Solutions, An Post and the County & City Enterprise Boards aimed at the 40% of Irish SMEs including sole traders that do not have a website or an online presence. A few weeks ago, I was delighted to be asked by Limerick City Enterprise Board to be a trainer for this programme. I was also asked to deliver the training in County Clare and North Tipperary. This blogpost is for anyone now thinking about signing up for a free website and the training which is aimed at helping small businesses to set up and manage a site that works for them.
