Lately, there’s been a surge of panic about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) rankings. Many small to medium-sized business owners have been bombarded with unsolicited emails, international calls, or form submissions warning them about their website’s poor performance on Google. If you’ve received such messages, take a deep breath. We at GOOP Digital are here to demystify SEO and guide you on what to do if you’re concerned about your rankings.
What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It’s the practice of enhancing your website to make it more appealing to search engines, thereby improving its position in search results. The process involves various activities like identifying relevant keywords, creating high-quality content, and optimizing it for both search engines and users.
No need to panic
You might hear phrases like “Your website doesn’t rank on Google.” These statements are often broad and generic. They don’t specify that you’re not ranking for your unique product or service in your local area—which matters most for small to medium businesses like yours. We ensure that your website is optimised for local search so you can dominate in your specific geographic region.
Behave like a consumer
The best way to put your mind at ease is to put yourself in your customer’s shoes. Jump onto Google and search for your product or service in your local area. Chances are you’ll find yourself ranking well, especially if you’re a GOOP Digital client. Our website designs and development include top-of-the-line SEO strategies targeting your specific demographic in your area.
