What is SEO?
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, comprises the techniques and strategies used to improve the rank of a website in search engines’ organic (non paid) listings. Though Google is often the target of SEO, SEO strategy does cover Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
The ultimate goal of SEO is to increase traffic to a website, by improving the position of that website in organic search on the search engine results page, or SERP. After all, a website in position 1 of the SERP will drive higher traffic than a website in position 10 or not even on the first page. Here’s an example of the top organic results on a search engine results page.
To reach this goal of being ranked at the top ot 1st in organic search engine results when consumers are searching for your product or service locally, you must tackle a variety of SEO initiatives: keyword research, content creation, link building, and many other on-site and off-site tactics.
What is On Site vs Off Site SEO?
Search Engine Optimization includes both on-site and off-site activities.
How to Use SEO to Increase Visibility
As we mentioned before, your end-game is to improve ranking and increase traffic to your site, thereby improving the visibility of your website. After all, there’s virtually limitless opportunity with Google alone responsible for 100 billion searches per month. That translates to 3.3 billion searches per day, and Google only has roughly 75% market share of search.
To take advantage of this immense opportunity, it’s important leverage SEO best practices, social media, and pay-per-click or paid search advertising to give you a dynamic, wide-reaching marketing mix. If you fail to implement these strategies, that just creates opportunity for your competitors to creep in on your customers.
