Your website is a powerful way to reach potential customers - if they can find it. This video explains ways to boost your website’s visibility in search results.
When is the last time you searched on Google, Bing, or Yahoo! and looked beyond the second page of results? If you replied “rarely” or “never” you’re in the majority.
In most instances, the first few sites listed on a search results page are paid ads. But the websites listed immediately below them achieve their enviable spot through good SEO - search engine optimization.
SEO is the process of applying technical and creative elements to your website that act as signals to search engines. Search engines evaluate these signals and use them to assess the relevance and trustworthiness of your website, which in turn determines where your website should rank compared to other sites.
Optimizing your site for high visibility on search engines takes knowledge and time - and it’s not just a once-and-be-done task. Search engine algorithms are fine-tuned and changed over time, so keeping your site’s SEO current is a marathon, not a sprint.
Luckily, you don’t need to become an SEO guru to optimize your site.
