How Seo Can Help Your Business Thrive - Even During A Recession

If you don't know how SEO can help your business I will lay out the benefits for you to help you better understand the power it can have. See why almost every major corporation is "bringing out the big guns" when it comes to their online marketing campaigns.

If you don't already know what search engine optimization (SEO) is, it's the technique's that are used to reach high rankings in the natural listings of the search engine results pages (SERP's). These are optimization strategies which are the recommended best practices from Google and Bing's webmaster guidelines, and they involve everything from the design of your site, the coding and content among many other things.

How SEO Can Help Your Business

A good SEO specialist will help your business become more profitable, and depending on your type of business a return on investment can easily be reached within the first month in many cases. I have personally worked on websites and reached over 400% website traffic increases within a month to two months time. Now if you're in the industry of selling your services or time to people, such as lawyers and consultants, an increase in traffic that high can do really good things for your business.

Search Engine Optimization is preparing for long-term success, and without it your site will usually reflect in the search engine results when your business does not show up on the first page. If you didn't know, the majority of people will click on one of the top 5 results that are listed (over 80%) and if you're not on page one you can pretty much forget it.

Is SEO Right For Every Business?

Coming from someone who does SEO for a living, of course I'm going to tell you yes to this question. That being said, not every business will see a quick return on investment while others will not see one at all.

The way to make sure that you can benefit from SEO you should do some research and see how many people are searching for your product/services on the internet. This is where you measure how much you pay for search engine optimization and how many potential customers are searching for your type of services.

For example, if you own a restaurant in a small town of say 5-10,000 people it would take you a long time to make a return on your investment. In this case I would tell the owner of the restaurant in that small town to keep his money because I'm in the business of helping people and not just taking their money for no good reason.

Now say you are a lawyer in a town with a population of 50,000 people or so, it would only take a small handful of clients to find you online to make your money back because there would be plenty of demand for your services.

How SEO Can Help Your Business Thrive?

As people of the world turns to the internet more and more every day to find the things they need, there is no better time than now to put your businesses services or products in front of millions of people who are looking for what you have. If you own a local retail store of any sort, the internet can do wonders for your business. I once saw one story on the news about a company in New Mexico (i think that's where it was) that made custom cowboy boots, and when they put their business on the internet their sales increased to something crazy like over 400%.

If you are about to hire a person or company to handle your SEO, this article lists 5 questions to ask before you hire anyone. In order to be successful online, you should establish goals for your website to always keep pushing yourself forward.

I hope this clarifies whether SEO will be profitable for your business or not. If you have any questions about any of this, please ask them in the comments section below and I'd be happy to help.
