We don't know the answer if pre-construction SEO was used however post construction Kings Cross Station must be a key SEO term for London passengers planning their travel, architect spotters and tourists.  See our SEO DIY tips to get your site SEO ready today so your site is found for the right reasons.

So you’ve begun your journey to SEO readiness for your site. Now what?

“What's in a name? That which we call a rose

By any other name would smell as sweet.”- Shakespeare

 

Shakespeare may have shed light on the value of quality content and service of an organization, but the name is what draws your potential clients (the users) in, when they type the magic words relevant to your site on the search engine. I am talking of your name and it’s branding across the web- social media, domains and blogs.

 

Grab your brand identity quickly

Here is a list of all the areas where you can claim your brand’s name, so that someone else who may do something completely different does not take it up.  Take Nasty Gal, an eBay-started retro clothes designer who drew inspiration from a song, but unfortunately had to share the name with a Porn site. Imagine the surprise (and not the good kind) of her customers when they searched her! Happily she now has bought the domain and her company’s name, so that her site is the first result).
