Digital Marketing: Why Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Is Important for Your Small Business

What is SEO? SEO is an acronym for search engine optimization. What does that mean? It is a method of optimizing a search engine’s capabilities by using keywords on a website so search engines can locate your site when customers are searching for your product or service. Why is it important for a small business? If you have a website, you want people to find it. Get started using SEO for your business with the following suggestions:

  • A great first step to incorporating SEO into your marketing practice is to create a Google Business Account and post your location and a Google Map on your website. This addition, along with positive customer reviews, will actually help with your search engine ranking.
  • Link building is another great marketing practice to help with SEO. Write a guest blog, have a contest or add your company’s name to your Chamber of Commerce directory and create links back to your site. The more content, the better chance for a good ranking.

If you are consistent, your results will start to appear. The real key to SEO – understanding how it works is the best way to make it work.

Hi Jessica - I'd suggest reading anything you can that helps to understand the process. Trial and error is also an awesome way to learn. Check out Codecademy - an awesome learning site that offers free courses. Hope that helps!

Great tips! What if I wanted to boost traffic to my website, but not to my home (which is the registered address for my LLC)?
AJ Rogers
The best way to boost traffic is to create content. You can create more content on your site with what you already have by transferring current content of a blog post into other formats like a video. LinkedIn is another option and can be a great way to drive traffic to your site other than Facebook. One forgotten but great tactic for driving traffic to your site is to join a forum and answer questions, especially with your expertise. You can also post some of your content in the forum to drive people back to your site. I hope these helped! :)
