What is SEO?
When did you last click on a search result on page two of Google? Never. Exactly.
An effective Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) campaign can be the difference between your website making it to page one of Google or not, making it a key component of the award-winning digital marketing services that we offer at 21Digital.
But what exactly is SEO? And how can it be utilised to benefit your business? Here’s our introductory guide:
A quick definition of SEO
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is essentially the practice of increasing the number and quality of visitors to a website by improving its rankings in ‘organic’ algorithmic search engine results.
Almost 95% of searchers won’t look beyond the first page of Google’s search results. So, if you’re not on page one, it’s extremely unlikely that you’ll be seen by potential customers searching for your products or services.
The purpose of SEO optimisation is to push you as high up the Google league table as possible to ensure your website is visible on page one, allowing you to receive optimum clicks from potential customers.
How does SEO work?
Search engines like Google, Bing and so on, score their search results largely based upon relevancy and “authority”. Google uses over 200 signals in scoring their search results.
SEO encompasses technical and creative activities to influence and improve some of those known signals. The point of SEO is to make sure that your website is easily accessible, technically sound and uses the keywords that people type into search engines to ensure it gets exposure. Basically, SEO aims to ensure algorithms work in your favour for customers searching for your products or services.
