Your company probably has a website already, but how well is it really doing? It is one thing to have an awesome product or service, but what is the point if no one ever sees it? The website is there to provide information and to promote your business. Once your website is up and running, there is a potentially huge audience just waiting to digest all of its information and hopefully think about becoming a customer. Before they have a chance to even see your website, you need to compete with all of the other similar businesses in cyber space. This article looks at the ways in which you can do your bit to give your website, and your company, the best chance possible.
What Is SEO Exactly?
SEO is an acronym for ‘Search Engine Optimisation’, and it is a process that affects the visibility of a website in a search engines results. When you go to a particular search engine and type in the name of a service that you require, a number of results are returned within the listings. Most people tend to look at the first two or three results and disregard the rest. The websites that have hit the top 3 spots have not just got lucky. There is a clever process that boosts those websites popularity in comparison to the lower ranked sites. This is known as SEO and is a fantastic way to ensure that your company always comes up on that first page.
How Does It Work?
An SEO analyst will understand exactly how these search engines work, and they tend to follow similar algorithms regarding their criteria. When a potential customer types in a keyword in order to find a website that supplies a specific product or service, this keyword will have a ranking due to the frequency it is used. If a keyword has a very high ranking, then this can be added to the particular website’s content. As a result the website with the most common keywords will be brought up quickly after an internet search is executed. This is a simplified version of an example of how SEO works. There are many other more sophisticated methods that are equally as effective.
