Welcome to Genius Loci Media in the Far West of Cornwall
Founded by Phil Aston former Operations Director of WPP & Kantar
I started in SEO in 1998 and I have seen so many changes since then. Google used to tell you when they were going to make changes, now they change their algorithm several times a day. It was also so much easier to get a website found back then. Many people who specialised in SEO in the early days had various tricks and techniques that worked almost overnight. None of those techniques work now and for good reason. The intent behind getting traffic to a website back then was not always that ethical!
I have seen so many changes over the years and I am pleased to see that Search Engine Optimisation is now about building trust through transparency and real honest goals.
In 2020 is also not just about Google anymore. Your website may be at the heart of your online world but enquires will also arrive via Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube etc. One of the things I see a lot is that clients may feel more confident on their favourite social media channel, and place multiple updates there while still pointing potential customers to a website that no longer shares the same message.
Also with WordPress, there is a misconception that all you need is an SEO Plugin like Yoast and you are ready to go. If you are reading this you know this is not the case. Your customers are using social media to get feedback from real customers and get reassurance that they are making a sound decision. So not only have you got to be found online, but you also need to ensure all your channels are joined at the hip and singing the same song.
COVID-19 has made this even more important. It is not what you say or do, it is how you make people feel which is how you will be remembered. Your message and your content strategy need to project the same story. Customers will compare and share your story across social media and review websites, only then will they make their move. I help your customers find you online and ensure your website and content work for you and not against you.
