Our group meet with Oliver Wood to discuss more regarding Search Engine Optimization and its role in a business’ marketing strategy. Some people may view SEO as a complicated method but in reality it is just another process of marketing a business. While some business may not see its importance, it has proven for many years to be a good investment when it comes to being visible online and reaching more customers. Its value as a marketing method has been proven to help businesses from small to large ones.
It has also been proven to give companies higher Return of Investment compared to paid ads on print and television. For those who are not familiar with search engine optimization, it may be considered a magical wand transforming a small business into a large company in an instant but in reality it is just like any other method of advertising but with more concrete results when done properly. A strategy used in one company may not be applicable in another and that is the trick when doing any type of advertising. SEO is proven to increase the visibility of a company, promote its brand, and increase the traffic into the site; return of investment is higher, increases a brand’s credibility and gets a look into what the customers want and needs.
Having a higher raking in the Google search result will not only increase the traffic going to your site but more and more users are going to trust your brand. Appearing in the first page will give them the idea that your website is one of the best that is why it is always on top. Securing a higher ranking does not mean everyone will go and check out your website and stick with you. There will be many choices but it will be helpful in building trust.
It also helps in increasing the credibility of a website if it always appears on top as it gives customers the idea that Google is recommending the site as one of the best. One of the most undeniable effects of a search engine optimized website is the increase in the traffic. This traffic will not turn into customers unless your website and products or services are selling themselves to the customers with the help of quality content. Last but not the least, SEO is proven to give a higher return of investment compared to other forms of advertising.
