      Rainer Hi

      I agree with you 100%. SEO is a must for every company who wants to complete on-line but also off-line. Having a proper Internet presence for small businesses is a must

      Thank you for your comment

    Hi Alex,
    SEO for small business can be a hard nut to crack. Small budgets and limited resources, what I loved about this is you have given people help on how to outsource SEO. I think that’s great. Typically small business don’t have the experts in house who either have the knowledge or the time to learn enough for some local listings.

    Well tied together, thanks for the post.

      JH Hi

      Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately most small businesses don’t do any SEO at all or do it wrong, while they could outsource SEO for a reasonable amount and gain from all these benefits…

      Thanks again

    Great tips and a good overview of SEO for SMB’s! I agree “SEO will help you create a better, faster and friendlier website for users.” Most people and businesses don’t approach SEO properly and today content marketing plays a big roll in the Google algorithm. While SEO seems to have a bad taste for some, it’s still the most cost effective way of getting targetted traffic to your site. That is if it’s done properly. All too often, black hat’s and other make a bad name for SEO.

      Jordan Hi

      I agree with you 100%. Small businesses have so many benefits to gain from SEO but still the majority of them are missing out. Google algorithmic changes are in the right direction and I believe that the situation is getting better.

      Thank you for your comment

    SEO is a highly measurable marketing activity as their are tools that can tell you exactly how much traffic/conversions you are getting, what position you rank on search engines and how many conversions you are achieving in form of clicks you are getting. That explains why 40% of all business websites have undergone optimization in one way or another. As the optimized websites work for you, you get more time to focus on improving quality and running the business.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Jitendra

      Thats true, SEO is about improving quality and websites that do this, are in far more better position that websites that ignore SEO.

      All the best

  10. Samantha Rogers says

    I never realized how important your internet presence could be to the success of your business. You mentioned that having your site on top of the SERPs can not only gain new customers but will also help with your social media presence. Do you think that SEO is something that a business can be successful with on their own, or do you think it is better to hire an SEO company to handle this side of the spectrum for you?

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Samantha

      For best results you can do both. You can learn the basics of SEO so that you know how it works and what to expect. Then as your website and business grows, you can hire professionals to work on your SEO and concentrate on how to best run your business.


  11. Derek Mcdoogle says

    In your article, you stated that SEO will help you gain better rankings in search engine result pages and this translates to more targeted visits and essentially to more customers. I can imagine that if your business has a website then being more visible online could be very helpful. I wonder if there are specific types of SEO tasks that might be more valuable for certain types of companies.

  12. jresquival says

    That’s interesting that SEO increases conversion rates. I guess if you have a clean running site people will be more likely to trust your business. Search engines like the same kinds of things that people do, so if people are staying on a site longer it will rank better.

  13. Rachel Lannister says

    You mentioned that SEO is a great way for a company to get ahead of their direct competition, as improving online presence exposes you to new customers. I had heard in the past that many businesses were working with SEO services, and I was wondering why. With how often people use the internet to look up everything in their lives, it makes sense that a business would want to make sure they had their presence known there.

    • Alex says

      Hi Rachel

      That’s true, SEO is important because it can help you achieve higher rankings which means more traffic and more customers from Search Engines. It’s the way to build a long lasting business these days.

      All the best

  14. Maggie Allen says

    It’s good to know that SEO and social media work together in your marketing campaign. I can imagine how beneficial SEO is for social media as well since you can actually get it out there because your website is more optimized. I wonder if most marketing companies offer both social media and SEO together. It would make sense too, since they can be optimized together by a professional.

    • Alex says

      Hi Maggie

      We do offer SEO and social media together and I’m sure that other agencies have similar services. At the end of the day it comes down to budget and priorities and SEO has a higher ROI than social media. The best approach of course is to do both.


  15. Morris Edwards says

    Thank you for the handy post. It provides some informative points as to why SEO is useful for small businesses.

  16. Frank Delaware says

    Thank you for all this great information about SEO! One thing that I never knew is that it can actually help you find new customers and help your website grow twice as fast! It would be nice to know that you will be able to get the best for your business.

  17. Callum Palmer says

    There really are a lot of benefits to getting SEO work done for your website and I love that the article goes into so much detail on some of them. However, I think the one that most people will pay attention to is how it can help you bypass your competition. After all, if you show up more often in Google searches then you’re competitor then you are likely going to get more business then them.

  18. Sunita says

    Cool, thanks for writing this article. It provides some really good points as to why SEO is useful for small businesses. I’ll pass this on to a couple of my local clients.

  19. Anthony Connolly says

    This is just the information I was looking for. Because of spam battles and the extra work comment regulation caused, I had turned comments off of three of my niche blogs. Now I realize that was a big mistake – after several months, I noticed less traffic and saw a direct correlation to ranking lower on Google than I once did for these blogs. I never made the connection to the comments, but now it’s obvious.

    Thanks for the information – I’m turning my comments back on right away!

  20. Ridley Fitzgerald says

    SEO sounds like it’s great for businesses. I like how you said that it helps with getting more customers, since more people will actually see your website. If I owned a business, I’d put a lot of effort into the website and SEO, I think.

  21. Sajjad Bhatti says

Alex this stuff definitely ignites their approach towards getting the best for their businesses.

  23. Rosie Beckett says

    My brother has started a small business providing customized artwork for his clients and he is looking for ways to reach more potential clients so I am glad that I found this article! I didn’t realize that SEO has so many benefits like the fact that it will build brand awareness and help my brother gain trust with customers. Also, it makes sense that creating a great website and sending out emails and talking across other social media platforms is a great way for my brother to build a fanbase.

  24. Ellie Davis says

  26. Sara says

    Many people have the vague idea that SEO is all about the ranking of the website. It’s partly true, but it’s also about user-friendliness. When users are able to get a great user-experience on the site, they would definitely visit the site. A site which is clutter free and offers a clean look would definitely visited by more people as customers would find it easy to use.
