The Value of SEO for Small Business
As a Sedona business consultant one of the most frequently asked questions by my clients is whether they should be investing in SEO or Search Engine Optimization; after all, most of them tell me, they have been doing just fine using CPC or Cost-per-click campaigns. My answer to them is this: they could be getting twice or thrice as many leads and using a lot less of their marketing budget. Search engine optimization has become the way to go. To understand why you have to understand what it is first.
SEO is the process of getting search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo to “like” your website. This happens when you apply given algorithms to it. The better you apply the algorithms the better your ranking, which basically means that you get closer and closer to the first page of search results. Why do you want your website to be found there? Because users will not look beyond this page when they are looking for a product or a service. They will, in fact, type in a different set of search words rather than go to the second page of web results. This means that for your website to stand a chance of getting you leads you have to do enough SEO the right way and consistently.
What can this Sedona SEO company do for your business?
When you call in a Sedona SEO company the first thing they will do is assess where your website stands as it is. If you had done some SEO in the past they will check to see how it has been ranking. if you haven’t then they will have to start from scratch. Their main aim is to do both front end and back end SEO. Front end means that they will be looking at the website through the eyes of the user. Are the colors right? Does your logo stand out enough? Is the font right? Is the content correct and is it logically organized?
Back end SEO, on the other hand, is about making sure that the back end of the website is okay. They will check whether there are back links and how good they are; they will check on tags to make sure that every page is properly described. In other words, they will be looking at the inner workings of the website to make sure that it fits the necessary algorithms.
