Fewer and fewer companies are unaware of the value of search engine optimization (SEO) — that process of increasing visibility and reach on the web.
But most businesses are hard pressed to keep up with the constantly changing algorithms and “tricks of the trade” that make SEO a full time job for someone who knows what he’s doing.
“SEO or search engine optimization is important for any business to get exposure online,” notes a recent Fusion 360 blog post. According to the Utah-based experts in SEO: “In order for your page to rank well on search engines like Google and Bing, it is important to hire an expert to help you achieve these goals.”
Staying up to date is critical. Because Google and other search engines constantly rejigger their algorithms to fight spam and gaming the system, SEO realignments are an ongoing necessity.
But it’s important to keep abreast of the latest, according to experts.
“When a company is using old or outdated SEO techniques, this is a sure sign (of trouble),” according to Fusion 360. “Tactics such as spammy title tags and meta-descriptions are no longer relevant. An SEO expert is someone who is aware of the constantly evolving techniques.”
Since consumers now turn to the web — across a multitude of devices — SEO excellence is a de rigueur requirement.
In the current world of the web, SEO is keeping up with the Joneses. Or the Googles, in this case.
