3. Basic and advanced SEO
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is the digital discipline that encompasses all those activities aimed at improving the ranking of one’s web pages on search engines.
Why SEO? Because search engines are the channel in which people use the web, 85% of traffic conversion occurs through SEO. It is a pull channel, i.e. a channel that does not push the user to buy, but instead allows him or her to make a better buying decision. In Digital Coach you will be able to deepen your knowledge and develop the appropriate skills to become a digital professional. This course will also allow you to implement your training because it is part of the Google marketing courses required to obtain certifications.

Did you know that ‘near me‘ queries have increased exponentially in recent years? Today’s users, also thanks to the spread of mobile devices, live with the Internet: they are constantly connected. Web surfers search for information, products, or services, and want immediate answers to their needs. To meet users’ needs, Google is focusing on Micro Moments, and for a business, or company, it is important today more than ever to geolocalise, to appear at the right time, i.e. when the user’s need arises. Among Digital Coach’s Google training courses, with local marketing you will discover exactly how to make yourself visible and be the first relevant response for users.

The Google Analytics Individual Qualification certifies the acquisition of all the skills linked to Analytics, the free Google tool that allows you to carry out a web analysis, i.e. an activity of study, monitoring and interpretation of the data tracked on your own website, or that of your company. The great potential of this tool is that it allows one to identify, with the integration of data, the strategies to be implemented to improve one’s online business.
