Why is SEO Important?

Conducting SEO work on your website weekly is highly important to the overall success of your website. It ensures that your website’s layout and content are optimized to take advantage of everything that both visitors and Google are looking for in your website. A website that utilizes quality SEO will find itself increasing their traffic and ranking above competitors who do not have the same level and frequency of SEO work being done.

Alternatively, a website that does not utilize SEO will find their traffic stagnate at best, and likely will drop each month. Any website that wants to gain additional visitors per month should utilize SEO services that conduct work on their website each week. Publishing new, SEO optimized, content regularly to your website is a major part of the SEO process as it shows Google that your website is active and contains fresh content when compared to websites that only update annually or that have not been updated since it was created.

 

What Is SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

If you don't know what SEO is I will describe it here. If you already know what it is reading this paragraph will not be a good use of your time and I would suggest you skip forward to the next paragraph. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.

2. Add Videos To Your Key Conversion Pages

Rationale: Tests have shown adding video usually increases sales by on average 86%. This works because videos keep people more engaged, keeping them on your website longer and give you more time to convince them to purchase.
