One of the UK’s most well established SEO companies, FirstFound reviews the way it uses social networking and social media sites in a bid to respond to changing trends on the Internet. It emerged after a video of one brave employee having his head shaved for charity was posted on YouTube, sparking a flurry of interest which saw the Manchester SEO company FirstFound open official Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages which it has made available to the public.
FirstFound have been involved in a number of charity fund raising events, including a campaign to raise £20,000 for the Lancasterian school for pupils with special needs. There are also plans for some of it’s consultants to take part in Zombie Aid, a sponsored zombie walk set to take place in Manchester on November 1st.
In today’s climate it seems that ethics and corporate responsibility come with a price tag too rich for some banks and even members of parliament, making it refreshing to see a company actively demonstrate a social conscience and understanding of the greater role it plays in the local community.
Founded in 1999, the Manchester SEO company FirstFound has witnessed many shifts in the way optimisation has changed over the last decade, and has always been at the forefront of new innovative ideas and the latest trends. In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, Managing Director Chris Bellamy explains:
There is no magic trick, but we are successful because of our experience, our expertise and our investment in automated data systems. And, because we have a huge number of clients, we can quickly see if any of the search engines change their criteria and respond immediately.
I personally feel that the Internet is definitely moving in a direction that will place more emphasis on social media and networking. It seems as though this latest shift marks a trend that I expect to see other SEO companies follow.
