Space & Time Media’s SEO consultants have been appointed by 21st Century Fox to investigate how people search for illegal streaming and download services, and to give insight into the size of this problem on a global basis.

The agency will also be advising on how to drive more traffic to legal means of accessing content, using optimisation techniques on existing websites.

Donal Langan, Head of SEO at Space and Time, said, “This is a great opportunity to work with a fantastic global brand, using our in-house expertise to add to their understanding and knowledge of this issue and crafting strategies to counter such behaviour.”

This is an unusual focus for Space and Time’s search consultants and gives the agency scope to demonstrate how the use of search knowledge and techniques can augment a company’s understanding of their audience and audience behaviour.

Established in 2000, Space & Time Media has offices in London, Reigate, Edinburgh and Manchester.
