What’s SEO? SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is a buzz word thrown around by marketers and non-marketers alike. SEO is the process of obtaining traffic, both quality and quantity, to your website through search engine results. There are many search engines out there, but some are more important to rank on than others.
Google is by far the most popular search engine. With almost 75% of the world’s search market share on desktops and almost 93% on mobile devices, it is far and away the most important search engine to optimize for. 1.6 billion estimated unique visitors find their way to Google each month.
Although YouTube doesn’t often get included in the statistics of search engine market share, it is the second highest used search engine out there. It is also owned by Google.
Bing, Yahoo, Ask, AOL Search, others not worth mentioning.
Now that we’ve learned what’s SEO and which search engines to optimize for (the answer is Google!), let’s dive in to see how SEO can help your business.
SEO can be a learned skill. But, like most valuable skills, it requires a high amount of research and training. Many businesses avoid SEO because they don’t know what SEO is, how it works, and where to get started.
So here is my advice to your business: An effective SEO strategy is more involved than you think. Your business needs to create a marketing strategy that has SEO top of mind in all of your digital marketing channels. Your website strategy, your social channels, your email marketing, your advertising, and your analytics strategies should all work together to build an effective SEO strategy. Of course there are so many more things to do to create an effective SEO strategy (both on-page and off-page SEO), but we won’t get into these specifics today.
