Which translation services provider is starting 2018 at the top of Google?

Welcome to our third SERPs report on the search term ‘translation services’. The past two months have shown us the sometimes volatile nature of search engine ranking – this month however, shows us something completely different.

But before we delve into the top 5 ‘translation services’ website pages for Google.com and Google.co.uk, a quick SEO lesson!

The Importance of Title Tags

As part of our array of wonderful services for translation companies, we provide SEO Audits to check that our clients’ websites are fit for SEO-purpose. A common problem we often find is missing title tags or poorly written title tags.

What is a title tag?

A title tag is a simple bit of HTML in each website page that informs search engines about the content on your site. It is usually the piece of text that Google, for example, will show in search engine results as per the purple text below for our website.

Example of title tag in Google

Now have a look at the title tags used by some of the top LSPs for their SEO as per our January 2018 SERPs report.
