Why SEO?

This is one of the most common questions that brands
and business owners have when it comes to digital
marketing. SEO is not sexy to talk about because it
doesn’t come with the speed that paid advertising comes
with. However, most business owners don’t realize that
the moment they stop spending money for ads, well that’s
the moment when their leads stop coming in.

SEO on the other hand will take time yes BUT will last
forever, think of having hundreds of thousands of avenues
leading back to your website, that will stay there and
continue to bring in leads. There are so many benefits for
your business with a successful SEO campaign. If you’re
looking for a top-rated SEO agency that will take your
campaign to a new stratosphere, then here you are. Get in
touch with us online to talk about your custom SEO strategy.

What is SEO?

Search engine optimization or SEO as it’s commonly called is the process of driving organic traffic to a website or landing page.

What is organic traffic? The term “organic traffic” refers to the visits received by your website through unpaid search results, thus it’s called organic. Like we mentioned, paid advertising is generated through paid ads, organic traffic is purely sourced from organic search results. Meaning that visitors found your business website by searching for certain keywords in search engines like Google or Bing.

The base of every business should be one that focuses on generating organic traffic BEFORE paid ads.

When done correct, SEO will improve your search engine rankings for specific keywords and keyword phrases which will result in organic leads to your website primed for transactions. We are talking utilizing website design for optimized on page SEO, referrals from trusted sites, blog articles for strategic keyword-rich articles that will pull prospects toward your website and ultimately your business!

How Does
SEO Work?

When a user searches a keyword or phrase in a search engine like Google or Bing, it will pull the most relevant websites that satisfy what the user is looking for. That list is called the
search results. At the top of the search engine results page (SERP), you will see the paid advertising listings that are provided by the search engine themselves such as Google
Ads, Bing Ads, and more. Now the rest search results or
websites from the listing that are not labeled as “Ad” are the organic search results.

After a query has been entered in Google or Bing, the search term will be analyze and the search engines will provide the
most relevant websites for the user. The main target with SEO
is for your website to be listed on the first page of the results
for specific keywords related to your business – the higher the rank, the better so we shoot for number one every time. Data shows, 75% of online users don’t bother scrolling past the first page of the results. So we don’t focus on anything but that number one spot

More stats on the first page, the first five organic results
account for 67.60% of all the clicks. For a new website to
secure a high search ranking, SEO is used to optimize your website for your targeted keyword phases and keywords.
Search optimization is a complex process but with the right
team we can use our ALL our marketing knowledge and
networks to streamline the rankings in your favor.
