‘It’s the SEO side of things that most people fall down at. Say they go to Wix, put their content in and hit publish, they’re done. But they haven’t gone into the back end and run the SEO tool that tells them ‘they need to put a page heading here, a heading 1 tag here, your images are not optimized, you don’t have Alt titles etc’. They forget to do that part and then 12 months later, they’re not showing up on google, they’re not getting website traffic, they’re not getting google analytics and they come to me asking why they’re not being found!’

In today’s episode Kaity is joined by Karlie Plowman, aka Techno Bird, a website designer & SEO specialist.
