What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

“Google it.”

We’ve all heard that term. But have you ever wondered how a website gets to the top of the results in a search engine like Google? That’s Search Engine Optimization.

There are over 3.5 billion Google searches every day. That staggering number presents a ton of potential for your business. People are using search engines to find the products and services that they are looking for more so now than ever before.

There is more to SEO than navigating search engine algorithms. Having an advantage over your competitors in search engine results is dependent on a number of factors, such as user experience and technical factors like schema markup and site speed. Local SEO is becoming more and more important, and mobile search now outranks desktop searches.

Change is constant with SEO. Algorithm updates are constantly reshaping the landscape of what works and what doesn’t. Tactics that may have worked a few years ago may now be hurting your chances of being found. Here at Box Clever, we stay on top of all updates and pride ourselves on being knowledgeable about the best tools out there.

Why is SEO important for your business?

“The best place to hide a dead body is on Page 2 of the search results.”

— Wordstream

If you are not appearing towards the top of the search results, your customers are not finding you. The higher up you are on the search results, the more clicks you will get, and therefore, more traffic will end up on your website. SEO friendly websites result in better organic visibility, which means more results for you.

Good SEO is the first step to providing you with a competitive advantage. We can help you meet your objectives and grow your business by making you stand out from your competition online.
