Why Hire a SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Company?

How often do you turn to Google when you need to look something up? The answer to this question is probably more times than you think. In this day and age, it is as easy as breathing to access Google no matter where you may be, by simply pulling out your smartphone and clicking on the internet platform of your choice. This is what makes search engine optimization so important! In 2010, BIA/Kelsey conducted and released a study that showed 97% of consumers are using some sort of online media to research local products and services that they may need. Additionally, a survey that was done by Pew in 2011 indicated that over 92% of people use search engines to find information about a certain products and services on a monthly basis.

You can not argue with numbers, and these statistics make it clear that being found on any search engine and in properties around the web is vitally important for a business to reach both new and old customers. Now you might be asking yourself just how important is it to have your business’ website show up as one of the first websites on search engines when someone searches for a product or service that you have to offer? The results of a 2014 study conducted by Advanced Web Rankings indicate that the five top organic (meaning the first five non-paid websites) receive over 65% of all the clicks when a search is conducted for a product or service they have to offer. Not enough statistics for you to grasp how important it is to be at the top of the page when a search is conducted for a product or service that you have to offer? Additionally, in a 2012 study that was done by researchers found that 53% of Internet users click on the first unpaid result on the page.

With the Internet at their fingertips, most people use search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo! for information about products and services on a daily basis. Where do you show up in search results when someone searches for what your company offers? If you aren’t on the first page of results, it’s likely that you are missing out on a ton of business. Even more than that, if your business’ website is not in the top three search engine results, it is likely that your competitors are getting most of the attention that you should be receiving instead.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process by which a business moves their website to the top of search engine results when searches related to their business are performed. Factors that affect a website’s placement include content, links from outside websites, social media presence, website speed, mobile compatibility of the site and much, much more. A well-optimized website should show up at the top of the search results when the search is relevant, but many website owners don’t know the first thing about search engine optimization, let alone what search engines are looking for. Having you website optimized is a lengthy and often times confusing process for business owners. Like building a house or a website, when it comes to search engine optimization there are many “blocks” or steps to take to get the most out of what you are doing.
