Accessing the internet is as easy as ABC, there is no longer a need to wait for the phone to be free so that you can use the dial up connection which took a long time to connect. Almost everyone has broadband and connecting to the internet only takes a matter of moments meaning that you don’t need a large amount of time to get online and browse, whether you’re checking in with your social networks while on the move or sending an email for work.
If you want to find a piece of information the first place you will go to is the internet because you know you will have many different results in only a few moments, it does not require much searching on your part because the search engine does it for you. You can get possible answers in seconds and you can search through them to find the right one for you and it takes up a very little amount of your time. On the internet you can find anything from circuses to lingerie or even taxidermists, no matter what you are looking for you can find it in moments.
Business will require search engine optimisation (SEO) if they want to be found quickly online, search engine optimisation is what helps a website to rank highly.
If you were to think of the search engine results as a high street you would find that the top results are the biggest stores on the high street with the big windows and the best displays to draw you in. The lower results on the first page are the smaller high street stores, which may only have one window and so the display is not as big and fancy. The results which are not on the first page could be compared to the small independent stores which are off the high street meaning that there isn’t as much passing traffic for their window display to attract into the store.
If a business is not ranking highly then the amount of traffic you receive and the amount of business coming in through your website is not reaching its highest potential. If you rank on page 20 then your website is ranking between 201st and 210th position on the search engine and not many people are going to search through 20 pages if there is a website on the first page which will do the job for them. If you know that you offer the same quality of service or even a better service than a website which is ranking on the first page then you need to work on increasing your ranking so that you can compete with them.
If you want to increase your ranking then it is important to get an SEO company on board because they will know exactly what your website needs to increase in ranking. You may find that you already have some of the techniques in place without even realising it and so you won’t need to put all of the techniques into place. If you were to try and put SEO into place yourself you may not use white label techniques which means that you could find yourself decreasing in ranking so that you end up on an even lower page.
Once you have SEO for business in place you can expect to see an increase in search engine ranking along with an increase in traffic flow to your website. When your website sees an increase in traffic you can also expect to see an increase in business coming in through your website.
