search engine optimisation
What is it and how does it work?
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of organically being listed by search engines when specific keywords are typed into them. Other listings that appear are sponsored Pay per Click adverts and are paid for via a bidding process and they appear on the top and right side of the page.
The value of being found on the internet can not be overstated as the levels of business generated by the Internet runs into billions of Pounds. However, unless your business appears on the first page of a search engine the realistic chances of generating business from that listing is very small. You need to be amongst the top four natural listings and competition is now fierce across all industry sectors for first page rankings.
Did you know that over 90% of web traffic does get looked at past the first page in Google? So if you are not on the first page in the Google keyword SEO world you may as well not exist! Your page position is vital and even by moving up just one position on the first the rate of return could increase significantly. Remember it is your competitors who will get increased traffic and not you - people are looking every day for your goods and services and if you are not found then they will use your competitors.
It makes a huge difference which key words you use as it looks impressive when you see your company in first place for a defined search. Good stuff you say , but hang on what if the keyword search attracts very few searches, how impressive is that? Not very !
A good example is as below:
