What is SEO? Search Engine Optimization 

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It is the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “natural” listings on search engines. All major search engines such asGoogleYahoo and Bing have such results, where web pages and other content such as videos or local listings are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to users.

SEO is one of the marketing tools we use for our clients. Some businesses do not understand the commitment that is involved in good SEO.

Things to know about SEO:

SEO is an ongoing process and an important component for you to market your business.

If you are in Business for the long haul SEO is not an option, it’s a necessity.

SEO is a very important component to your marketing your business. And it takes time, that is WHY it is better to hire someone to do it for you.

All this is like Greek to most people that have no idea what the inner working of SEO entail. All the client knows is that they want more business.

To help you find a good fit for you:

1. Ask for references. And speak with the references to get their take on the success they have had with the particular SEO consultant you are considering.

The search engines change their algorithms all the time, it’s important to find a consultant who has experience and keeps up with the frequent search engine updates.

If the company you’re considering does not want to offer up previous clients for references, then you should move on.

2. Ask for examples of how they can apply SEO to your company

When you present your company, you should have clear goals in mind of where you want to go.

Ask the SEO consultant how they can help you, and what their steps are to get you on the right path.
