natural search seo
Natural Search/SEO

Some people will tell you that:-

‘A Good Natural/Organic Search Ranking is the No 1 Priority’

  • ‘SEO is the most important web service that businesses should be considering’
  • And that ‘a Poor website with many visitors will give at least some business’

If you have a low margin or low cost business I would agree with this

  • If you have an online business or you rely on the web for business you can’t afford to rely on Natural Search – you need marketing activities that you can control
  • That’s why advocate Paid For Listings (PFL) or Pay Per Click (PPC) Search Engine Marketing to be a part of most businesses online marketing strategy
  • And if you pay for traffic to your website you better make damn sure your website is giving your target customers what they want!

Next to the search results, ads can appear both on the right hand side of the page and occasionally above the search results. These are put there by Google’s online advertising product, called Google AdWords. Ads are triggered by the user query - this is called keyword advertising
