Module Description

Digital presences are constructed around the specific needs and idiosyncrasies of two classes of users – a user who is attempting to accomplish some informational or transactional objective; and, search engines which parse the web to index (deindex), rank (penalise), and return pages ranked according to some mostly unknown set of criteria. The ranking is said to show the relevance of a page to the user’s search intention.   

The module introduces students to the principles and best practices of optimising a digital presence for these two classes of users.   

Students will be able to develop and implement a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) plan and a related digital presence optimisation roadmap that will contribute to an organisation’s customer acquisition and revenue targets. The module will draw extensively and directly from Google, trade literature and the broader SEO expert community to provide students with real world examples, case studies, and problems they would encounter as a digital marketer.  

The module will be assessed through a hands-on project where students will apply their skills to a comprehensive SEO task.
