SEO / Search Engine Optimization

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the process of optimizing a website to appear higher on results returned by a search engine (e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.).

With SEO, it is like building billboards and banners for everyone to know where your business is and what you do. Developing your website’s SEO and increasing your search ranking will turn your relatively unknown business into a known first-choice storefront business. Everyone will see you! Would you rather set up your business in a backstreet, outside the CBD or right in the middle of major business district? All those people that would see your business aren’t going to make you money but chances are that a handful of them will eventually become your clients.

Moreover, ranking high in a search engine boosts the credibility of your business and sends a message that you are a serious and not a fly-by-night organization.
