The REAL Goal of SEO Is NOT Rankings

November 17th, 2008 · No Comments

Hawaii businesses, like all businesses, fall prey to SEO companies promising ‘Top Rankings!’ ‘#1 On Google!’ or all kinds of other promise that do sound great to the uninitiated. Unfortunately, they miss the real target your business is shooting for.

First, before we go further, rankings are indeed important. However, rankings are not all equal. If you just want bragging rights for being at the top of Google, you have a lot of options. In fact, it’s very easy to get to the #1 Google spot. There are unlimited numbers of keyphrases. You’re only limited by your imagination.

What really counts is finding the keyphrases that bring your conversions – your sales, your clients, your leads. That will be a harder path to follow, but it’s the one that makes SEO truly succesful. It’s like hunting. Which trail leads to the prize? Which one looks good, yet ultimately goes nowhere? That is what you’re shooting at and for with SEO. And most SEO companies forget that. I know a lot of Hawaii companies who are not getting what they think they are because of this.

Rankings are on the way to SEO success, but they aren’t the pot of gold at the end. Your most important factor in your SEO campaign should be the Conversions. That’s what will pay your bills. And we in Hawaii know how expensive our bills are.
