– And What Can SEO Do For My Business?
This page is purely informational. Please go to our Search Engine Optimization services page if interested in our services.
Today, Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, services are an essential tool for business. If you aren’t fully applying SEO, your competition is; And it’s giving them a big advantage. For Hawaii companies who deal with the mainland or other off-Island locales, Search Engine Optimization is especially crucial. Why?
Because most people now use the Internet to find businesses or services. How do they do this? By going to a search engine like Googe and typing in terms, or keywords/keyphrases, that describe what they’re looking for. The purpose of SEO is:
1. To figure out what those terms, or ‘keywords’, are most likely to be in your case. ‘Search Engine Optimization Services Hawaii’ would probably be the terms used to find services like ours.
2. To get your site ranked as highly as possible in search engines for those keywords. Those last three words are key. Traffic to your web site means nothing if visitors aren’t interested in what you sell. It must be targeted to bring potential customers; An avalanche of ‘hits’ to your web site seems impressive…until you realize that nothing resulted from them.
The #1 Reason Why SEO Is So Important To Your Business
Hawaii businesses often face an uphill battle. The Web has evened the playfield a little, but there are still factors that heavily influence online success. One of the biggest is that most people don’t look past the first 3 pages of search results. Sometimes not even that far.
What does that mean? It means that being on those 3 pages can be the difference between a good business and a booming one; It can even mean whether you’re in business at all.
Our goal is long term success. Some Search Engine Optimization consultants promise quick results or even a #1 ranking. It can be called ‘Get Rich Quick’ SEO. Usually, though, that type of SEO depends on tricks and techniques that the search engines will catch onto. And when they do, those sites will either fall in the ranks or be banned completely. A business that isn’t in the search engines is one that can’t be found. Ever try to buy from someone you can’t find? Or don’t even know exists? Exactly.
