Increased visibility leads to increased traffic to your website.
So what does this mean for you and your business? How can you utilize SEO to ensure that your name and brand rank high in search results? Here’s a few things that you should know about SEO and the fight for a place at the top of the list:
First Thing’s First: What is SEO?
Essentially, search engine optimization (SEO) is a tool-kit of certain methods, strategies, and techniques used to increase visibility and the amount of visitors to a website. When successfully utilized, these tactics help a site obtain a high-ranking placement in the results page of a Google search, leading to more traffic and higher conversion rates.
How Does Google Rank Search Results?
Many factors determine how your website will rank in a search, from mobile responsiveness and fast load times to simply including keywords in content, page titles, and URLs. The websites that Google lists at the top of its search results for any given term are the ones that they consider to be the most relevant and useful.
Since many factors affect a site’s ranking, SEO is important for every aspect of a website. A Google search is typically the beginning of a consumer’s active journey to a transaction, which means that SEO should be an essential part of your marketing strategy.
