SEO is Important for All Businesses



When someone uses a research engine, they type in an exceedingly set of words to mention results that are relevant to them. Once the applicable websites seem on the results page, they are rated in terms of 'relevancy'. Any website which has properly used search engine optimization can be judged by Google to be 'relevant'. So if you've got properly used SEO, your website will seem somewhere near the prime of the search engine results page - hopefully within the prime 3.

Think back to the days before the web, when everyone probe for business listings within the Yellow Pages or the same onerous copy directory. Now, imagine you're attempting to find a plumber. You move to the "P" page, flick through, and only see 3 plumbers listed.

Why is that therefore necessary? Well, studies have shown that the vast majority of these using search engines only click on websites listed within the top 3 results of any search engine results page. This is where it compares to being only one amongst 3 businesses listed in an old-vogue paper directory like the Yellow Pages. Master SEO, and your website can appear in high in search results, within the slots (one to three) that users click. That naturally leads on to a lot of people visiting your web site, and that in flip means additional business, more customers, and ultimately a lot of money.

It'd be a huge advantage for the three plumbers, wouldn't it? To effectively be all that potential customers see. Well, that is the power of SEO.
