SEO is an inbound marketing strategy using data and metadata (data that labels and describes other data) to help content rank higher in search engine results – in other words, when people search for specific needs or products, SEO makes it more likely that your website will be one of the links they see.
Today's SEO marketing focuses on finding the right keywords that connect with user intent, then using them in the right places like headlines, URLs, meta descriptions, and more. It also involves knowing what content search engine algorithms like to see, what sort of high-quality links can boost page ranking, and similar topics.
This varies depending on your brand and your website. Usually, it takes at least several months for SEO results to yield valuable data and show potential page ranking improvements. We can help you create a timeline that works for your business.
A lack of SEO can make it more difficult for people to find your website when searching. If your competitors are using effective SEO, this can make it less likely that visitors will discover your site. Imagine if the first 20 results for a Google search were competitor companies, and it was only lower on the third results pages that your website was ranked: It's easy to see how you may not be getting much traffic from these types of searches!
It's also important to understand what not to do, and avoid practices like keyword stuffing or using dubious links. These mistakes can actually lead to lower ranks and other online problems.
