Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is a set of practices that will help your website rank higher in search engine results. If someone searches for your product or service on Google or Yahoo, will you rank early in the results? Search Engine Journal reports that 70-80% of users ignore the paid ads, focusing on the organic results, and 75% of users never scroll past the first page of search results. SEO is extremely important to your business success!
Although many consultants charge large fees for SEO consulting, Acacia Web Design feels this component of your website is essential rather than optional, and thus every web site created by Acacia Web Design includes SEO. Because many of the decisions you will make, such as site content and social media marketing, can hinder or help SEO, it is important to make SEO an integral part of your website design process from the very begining.
