Basics of search engine optimisation (SEO) for small businesses

Tuesday 5th July 2022

10am

Venue: online webinar


Book your place on this training webinar to learn more about the basics of search engine optimisation (SEO) for small businesses.

Most small businesses are approached regularly by companies offering to help you appear higher in Google’s search results. Often they present SEO as a highly complex, technical process that requires a great deal of specialist knowledge, but in fact there are simple steps you can take to significantly improve the search ranking of your site yourself. Even if you decide not to do the work yourself, it’s useful to have an understanding of how SEO works when you’re dealing with SEO companies.

Surrey children’s charity, The Eikon Charity, has secured a limited number of spaces in both the London Marathon and Virtual London Marathon, taking place on Sunday 2nd October 2022. This year, there are two ways that you can enjoy the iconic London Marathon race and give children in Surrey a safe place to turn. You can join over 50,000 runners in the streets of Central London or tackle 26.2 miles at your own pace, on a course that suits you.

All runners taking part in the iconic race for The Eikon Charity will receive expert advice along the way, fundraising support and an Eikon Charity running vest.

The Eikon Charity asks each of its runners to fundraise for either event, which will make a huge difference to children facing serious challenges, often with no one else to turn to for support.

Minimum fundraising target:
• London Marathon - £2,000
• Virtual Marathon - £300

With this money the charity can provide more one-to-one support sessions, lunch clubs, youth groups, dedicated practitioners in schools and lots of other key services which give vulnerable children the support they deserve.
