Learn SEO and empower your business and marketing strategy.
During this trying time, UC San Diego Extension remains committed to helping you achieve your goals. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned all of our Spring and Summer courses to an online or hybrid format. Online classes will have pre-recorded lectures each week and guided assignments from the instructor. Hybrid classes are fully online with live virtual class meetings each week using our Zoom conferencing system.
An effective SEO strategy is critical for entrepreneurs, businesses, and organizations seeking to increase their online visibility, brand awareness, content consumption, and sales. The Specialized Certificate in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) provides thorough training in SEO strategy, keyword research, SEO tools, website metrics, and SEO best practices. Learn how to optimize a website’s architecture, conduct search-focused website audits, and increase your website ranking on search engines including Google, Bing, and Yahoo. You will explore a range of tools and valuable resources from practicing industry experts.
