Momentum recently headlined at the Business Growth Show in Oxford. Company director Jonathan Fink was one of two key speakers at the event, talking about how to increase online sales with SEO.

Recently presented at the Business Growth Show Oxford it’s a ‘how NOT to’ rather than a ‘how to do it’ guide. The reason being that, despite the wealth of information out there – countless books, seminars, courses – SEO projects continue to fail and continue to disappoint business owners’ expectations.
So, why is Search Engine Optimisation so important? Who – and what – is it for? Why bother – and who really cares?

Secondly, a huge increase in the number of unique keywords that bring visitors to the site through Google search; the number of unique phrases rises from 1500 to 6500 over six months – and is still growing.
