Arising from it's experience in developing search tools and directory services, Cognotent understands how search engines work and is perfectly positioned to advise on an optimised web design and also on how companies should interact across the web to produce a level of engagement that will ensure that their website is prominently positioned in the result pages of the major search engines.  Having built popular blog and twitter aggregators and Twitter metrics for Ireland, Cognotent understands social media and how to use it as part of the solution to achieve the desired outcome: to ensure relevant people visit areas or sites or apps that you control, and once there, they take the desired action. This requires productive online engagement rather than optimisation on its own.
