Best SEO expert in the Vanilla Islands

The Vanilla Islands Organisation is holding a competition for the best SEO expert (search engine optimization) for the residents of Vanilla Islands. As part of its promotional campaign, the organisation is taking part in setting up package holidays combining travel to several islands. The campaign’s success depends on increasing the popularity of the Vanilla Islands brand, especially online. Showing up in the first pages of search engine results for searches relating to tourism is a key factor. In order to soar to the top of search engine results, a number of operations must be carried out. A website’s textual content is the basis and years of experience will play a prominent role. You must focus on keywords, make the texts relevant… In short, it is essential to optimise content.

The process is called natural indexing or SEO and it helps a website rank higher in search engine results. The strategy enhances the website’s visibility, and therefore its popularity, by increasing organic traffic. At the same time, training in these techniques is widely available in the Indian Ocean. A true pool of talented people has been created over the years, and they are keen to prove themselves.

As such, we want to bring together the worlds of tourism and digital technology. We organise a competition for the best SEO expert in the Vanilla Islands. The competition will help enhance the visibility of the Vanilla Islands while discovering talented individuals in the area.
