SEO At It’s Best!

What Is Search Engine Optimization?

SEO (Search engine optimization) is the art and science of making your website show up in search engine results, primarily Google. When people use search engines they enter in something known as keywords. These are essentially the phrases used to search for things.

For example, “Surf shop Cape Town” is a four letter keyword. By using various techniques it’s possible to make your website appear in the results when specific keywords are entered. There are several reasons why this is important for your business.

We live in a digital world. People use the internet for almost everything, including to search for products and services. In fact, the first place most people go when looking for something is the internet.

It doesn’t matter if they need a surf shop, plumber or barber. The majority of people are going to Google search for what they want. 20 years ago they would have looked in the Yellow Pages, but today those methods of advertising are no longer effective.

The problem is that it’s not enough to simply have a website. Your website needs to appear in the search results for keywords associated with your business. Not only that, you need to appear at the top. Why? Because the top three results in Google get the Lion’s share of clicks and traffic.

In fact, websites in the top three positions are ten times more likely to get visited. This means that if your website is not at the top (or at least on the first page of the results) then it may as well not exist.

Successful SEO is not about tricking Google. It's about PARTNERING with Google to provide the best search results for Google's users.

Our View on SEO

Search engines provide an enormous opportunity for your business. No matter what your product or service is, it’s possible to market yourself through the internet and dramatically increase business. This is something that every business should be doing.

It’s also why search engine optimization on Google is so important. By optimizing your site you will slowly rise up the search results and receive more and more visitors. You can monetize these visitors in various ways. This can range from simply making them aware of your business, to providing them with information about your products or services or even (As in the case of E- Commerce) selling to them directly.

In our view, this is one of the most affordable ways of promoting small businesses. You have dozens of options for promoting your business. The most obvious are print ads, radio or television. Unfortunately these methods are extremely expensive, and out of reach for most small business people. On the other hand, any business can implement a digital marketing strategy.

Search engine marketing is also the gift that keeps on giving. Once your website reaches the top of the search results it can stay there for months or even years. This could potentially bring in thousands or even millions of visitors. Compare that to something like newspaper advertising where your ad may only appear for a single day.
