Search Engine Placement Increases Traffic To Websites

04/17/2012

What is SEO? Search engine optimization is the process of getting your website ranked on the front page of major search engines. The process takes making a website that is easy to maneuver with relevant content so that it is easily recognized by search engines.  As you guessed there is a lot more to it than that but in general that is what it takes to get your website on the front page of Google, Yahoo or Bing.

You may ask yourself why it is in your best interest to rank on the front page.  Why is this important?  How often are you searching Google and find yourself looking at the results on page five? Never!  That is because the most relevant information to your search has come up on the front page.  Within the top ten results you have an answer to what your search was.  It is proven over and over again that ninety-five percent of all traffic to a website comes from front page search results.  People are impatient.  They want to get the information they need without searching any further than they have to in order to get it. What does this mean to you, a business owner with an ineffective online presence?  You must work toward a long term SEO solution.  Many times this involves working with a search engine placement team of experts to analyze, fix and maintain your website and develop an online marketing plan.

It is helpful to go into any new business venture with eyes wide open.  The same is true when hiring a search engine optimization team of experts for your online marketing presence.  There are some key terms that get thrown around a lot that can be confusing to someone just entering the search engine race.
