Search Engine Optimization Services
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” search results. – Wikipedia
In other words, SEO is about identifying what people are searching for related to your business, products and services – and then optimizing your company’s website code and content accordingly, as per the relevant keywords. Website design and user-friendly site navigation is key once you have visitors, but SEO is the most effective and cost efficient way to drive those relevant visitors to your site.
By optimizing your website around relevant keyword phrases with our search engine optimization services, you’re telling the search engine provider what you’re all about and therefore what they should rank you for.

You will want to pay close attention to where your website is ranking. It’s important to keep sight of why you want your website ranking high – and it’s not just because it looks good to be #1.

There are many different SEO services that do high quality work across the country. Be sure that you hire one that has great search engine rankings on their own website.

There are probably millions of searches done every single year on the main search engines (Google, Yahoo and MSN) by people who would buy your products or services. These searchers (potential customers) won’t even know you exist unless they find you at the top of the search engines.
There are many ways that we make this happen, but first, we feel it’s important that you understand why it’s so important to have the top ranking be “owned by you” in the SERPS (Search Engine Results Pages).
The Importance of Ranking In the Top 10
The importance of ranking in the top 10 cannot be underestimated. In the “Search Engine Traffic Percentages By Ranking” chart to the right from Aaron Wall’s SEO Blog indicates that 89.82% of searches click on a listing that is in the first page of the search engine results. As a matter of fact, more than 42% actually select the first organic listing. Compare that to owning the number two ranking and receiving about 11.9% of the traffic.
So, if you rank number one for a term you are likely to receive about 4 times the traffic than if you ranked number 2. Almost 10 times the traffic of a number 5 ranking… So obviously, ranking your web site (or other content as universal search changes the landscape a bit) is imperative to online success. The higher your rankings are, the more traffic you will receive.
Universal Search Is Here… It’s Not Just About Pages Anymore
As time goes by you’re going to notice more and more that Google is adding things like video, maps with local businesses, images, news, books, and products into their search results.What hasn’t change, however, is the screen real estate that is show (by default) in the SERPS.
Because Google is adding all of these items to the results, you have to make sure that your web marketing strategy includes all of it. If you have products, you need a Google Base Feed and it should be optimized. If you don’t have videos on your site, you need to have them created and added to your Webmaster Tools Video Site Map. If you have a local business, you have to make sure you’re included in the map that appears when you’re searching for a local business of your type. The images on your site, if applicable, must be optimized so that they appear when searches are done.
