If you think of your business’ online presence like a house, search engine optimization (SEO) is like the foundation and beams that hold the house together.
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
The simplest definition of SEO is the process of improving your website’s chances of showing up first (or higher) in search results.
When you go to a search engine like Google and search for something like “body shop near me,” the search engine takes many factors into account to determine which results it gives you and in what order they appear.
More than a quarter of people will click the first organic (non-ad) result after searching, so if your business isn’t showing up at the top when someone searches for a related topic, you’re missing out on a huge chunk of potential customers.
