The search engine optimisation (SEO) specialist is one of those jobs that has become crucial for every business that uses the internet to win customers. Whether you hire an SEO consultancy or have an in-house SEO executive will largely depend on how big your company is and how dependent it is on online visibility, but an increasing number of businesses large and small are taking on a full-time specialist.
Essentially, the SEO specialist is someone who ensures that an organisation appears higher up on the search rankings when potential customers search for terms related to their business. SEO has become a minimum requirement for any online business, as neglecting it can quickly allow smaller businesses, even brand new ones, to overtake established companies in search rankings. And with the first page of search engine results pages still being statistically more lucrative than even the second page, SEO needs to be much better than minimum standard.
The skills required
SEO specialist jobs require a deep understanding of what optimisation means today, as yesterday’s SEO practices can be at best ineffective, and at worst can lead to forced de-ranking by the search engines when they break their rules. SEOs need to tread that careful path between following good practices and pushing the envelope just a little to get results without overdoing it.
There’s a whole wealth of tools at the disposal of the SEO professional, from Google Analytics to the dozens of proprietary software solutions that analyse competitor performance, keywords, site speed and all other elements of SEO. The more you have expertise in, the better.
SEO Specialist Jobs in Wigtownshire
Right at the south-western corner of Scotland, where it reaches out into the Irish Sea at the Rhins of Galloway, is the historic county of Wigtownshire. Although it is now part of the larger Dumfries and Galloway county, it retains its personality as a region of fishing and ferries to Ireland and the Scottish islands. As the crow flies, its south-eastern tip is only 21 miles (36 km) from Northern Ireland. Wigtownshire borders Ayrshire to the north and Kirkcudbrightshire to the east.
Any logistics or supply chain jobs such as SEO Specialist positions in the area will usually be connected to farming or the ferries, although the sparse population will limit such openings. The largest town in Wigtownshire is not Wigtown itself (whose population is less than a thousand) but Stranraer, at the southern end of Loch Ryan, with its 10,000 inhabitants. This probably represents the best opportunity for such work in Wigtownshire.
