Do you want to know what the first question is we get asked every time we speak to a new client?

Why do i need SEO?

  • As a conservative estimate, Google deals with 63,000 searches every second, globally. (Source: Search Engine Land)
  • 51% of all website traffic comes from organic search, 10% from paid search, 5% for social and 34% from all other sources. (Brightedge)
  • The top 5 positions in Google get 70% of the clicks. (MOZ)

Sometimes people over look the fact that you're simply more likely to rank higher for any given keyword if you've done some basic SEO than not.

And ranking higher means more visitors to your website and potentially, more sales.

It follows then, that even if you and your business do just some basic tasks, SEO will:

  • Give your business a better chance of succeeding versus your competitors.
  • Build brand awareness - if your website is ranking well for a popular industry-focused keyword it'll help spread the word about your business.
  • Ensure your website loads more quickly and is more likely to perform and rank well on all devices and browsers meaning your conversion rates will be higher than a non SEO-optimised website.

How do search engines work?

For any business looking to build a search engine friendly website or improve their existing website it's important to understand the fundamentals of how search engines work.

In essence, search engines:

  • Use bots to crawl the internet via hyperlinks looking for content and code in the urls they find.
  • Categorise and store the information found by its bots in an index. Once your site is in the index your business or products can be found.
  • Give human beings (or users) the ability to search or query its index by using a form. And they also collect and remember all these searches.
  • Use complex algorithms based on many factors not least, hyperlinks, quality of content to try to satisfy user queries by ranking the content in its index order of relevancy.

Why do you keep going on about content?

With SEO and content, more is more. More words on a page, or longer content, tends to rank higher in Google’s search results than shorter content. Now this might be a shock but:

  • The average web page that ranks on Google's first page of results contains 1,890 words. (Backlinko)

That's why we keep going on about content.
