Search Engine Optimisation
Search engine optimisation, or SEO as you might have heard it called, is a facet of digital marketing which helps increase the flow of traffic to your brand's website. The goal of SEO is to improve the ranking of your website so that, when a person searches for a term that is relevant to your brand's niche market, your website appears higher up on the search engine results page.
Why seo is important
Google is, by far, the largest and most popular search engine. When a Google user performs a search, it is likely that they will not look at any of the websites which follow the first five sites that are returned in the search. The users who go beyond the top five results that Google returns, are highly unlikely to click through to any of the websites that appear after the second page of the search results.
What this all means for your brand, is that if you're not at the top of the Google's search results, you're missing out on traffic to your website. Without traffic arriving at your website, conversion isn't happening.
what google wants
In digital marketing circles, search engine optimisation tends to get a bad rep. The reason for this, is the search engine "sins" committed by digital marketers in the 90's and early 2000's. Web designers would stuff their clients' pages full of keywords, without any valuable content, or they'd load up webpages with hidden text in order to grab Google's attention. The result was spammy websites that added no real value to Google's users.
In response to this, Google drastically changed their algorithms. Now, Google's web bots crawl the internet looking for content, website performance, website authority and user experience. In answer to the changes to Google, search engine optimisation took on a whole new form.
In today's world, SEO works with Google's algorithms and optimises your website to ensure the best possible experience for visitors to your website.
