SEO

We had some clients that came to the meeting with requirement "I want SEO" and had no information what that SEO is. It is important to understand this term if you want to have a successful website with a lot of visitors turning into customers. So... why is SEO important for your business?

 

What is SEO? 

SEO stands for "Search Engine Optimization". It is the practice of increasing the quality & quantity of traffic to your website through organic search engine results. It actually means that search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo show websites according to their content and how is it relevant to the users and their keywords.  
 

 

To understand what SEO really means, look at these elements: 

 

  • "Quality of traffic" means attract visitors who are genuinely interested in products/services that you offer and want to become your customers.

  • "Quantity of traffic" means that once you have the right people clicking through from those search engine results pages, more traffic is better. 

  • "Organic traffic" means any traffic that you don't have to pay for. It is a situation when Google shows your website to the user, but you don't pay anything. 

 

You have to optimize your website for SEO principles to attract more visitors & potential customers.
