What is Organic Search?
Organic search refers to a search query result on a search engine results page (SERP) that is earned, rather than paid for (that’s why you can see the word “Ad”). These organic results appear on a SERP in an order determined by their relevancy of how closely its content matches with the users’ search query or to keyword search terms.
What is SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?
SEO takes into account how the search engine works and what type of keywords internet users typed into the search engine. It deploys hundreds of strategies to influence and improve the position of a website and rank on top in the organic search results or SERP (Search Engine Results Pages).
There are basically 3 areas where we use the various techniques:
- Mobile Responsive
- Site Speed
- Site Navigation + Architecture
On Page SEO
- Keyword Research + Optimization
- Quality + Longer Content Creation
- Meta Description + Page Titles + H Tags
Off Page SEO
- Local Listings
- Directories Profiles
- Link Building
- Social Signals
- Domain Age & History
- Blog commenting
The above are just some of the many factors that influence and help a website to rank higher in the organic search results.
Why is SEO important for your business?
SEO is important to drive targeted traffic and eyeballs to your website.
There is about 3.5 Billion people who surf the internet each day searching for information, according to Google Search Live Statistics.
When your website is ranked on the first page of the search engine result page, the traffic is high and targeted, resulting in increased visibility, engagement, potential leads and eventually converting sales.
The average users usually search for a keyword or key phrase and seldom click beyond the 2nd or 3rd page of the search results. Traffic drops drastically by 95% after the 2nd page.
On average, organic search leads command a 14.6% close rate as compared to just 1.7% for outbound marketing leads.
Hence, SEO offers valuable leads from the targeted traffic and rewarding ROI for website owners though it may require a longer process.
