What is search engine optimisation?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. All major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo have primary search results, where web pages and other content such as videos or local listings are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to users.
Why is search engine optimisation important for your business?
Because if your existing or potential customers cannot easily and quickly find you then your business will be at a significant disadvantage in todays’ connect digital world.
So the most important step is to put yourself in the shoes of your target audience and understand their language, what they typically look for and then speak their language. This builds trust and authority for your brand. If you rank higher in search terms to that of your competitors you will be seen as as top performer for that search term. It also has an impact on increasing your traffic.
By the time you get to the second page of search results less than 1% of users are clicking on your results which highlights the importance of appearing higher in rankings. Since SEO is essentially free if done correctly, it has a high ROI compared to other marketing strategies. Lastly SEO can give you great insight into your customers and their behaviour and insight into what terms they searched for in order to land on your platform. Visibility on your target audience behaviour gives you leverage to refine messaging to optimise for these search terms and further increase traffic and retain and gain more customers.
