Myths of Search Engine Optimization

SEO Services

Myth: You don’t need SEO if you appear in top paid results.

Fact: 51% of website traffic is driven by organic search while paid search makes up 10%. SEO is a long term investment in the visibility and success of your website on the SERP. For SEO to be successful we must apply a holistic approach, which results in greater benefits overall. While paid ads may yield immediate leads, they add far less long term value to a website and brand.

User Interface & User Experience

Myth: How my website looks and functions does not affect SEO.

Fact: User interface and user experience (UI/UX) play huge roles in how your website is ranked. The job of Google’s ranking algorithm is to prioritize websites that convey authority in their industry and will best serve its visitors. If a website has a poor interface or experience, Google will not give it the authority to appear in top results on the SERP.

Search Engine Optimization Services

Myth: Content is all you need.

Fact: While relevant, informative content is necessary, it must be employed with other SEO strategies to actually be effective. Quality content must be coupled with on-page optimization efforts and link-building. No one SEO strategy can achieve optimal results by itself.
