    You can certainly pay for advertising and also try to get traffic through social engagement (social networks and relevant forums). Both of those things are usually critical to bringing in some traffic and sales at the beginning while you wait for the slow climb up the search engine rankings.

    After a point, the traffic and sales from social networking and paid advertising tend to level out. Actual growth is achieved through increased organic search engine visibility, which is why it is the most important long term goal.

    If you don't want to go down the paid route (which is a no no for a newbie) then,
    your online content should be optimised for the SE bots and in particular Google.

    So what does that really mean?

    1. Relevant title tags with regards to your keywords/phrases
    2. Site description should also include your keywords
    3. Unique site content

    In order to do well in organic searches searches all of the above has to be
    met in order for you to have a chance in competing well with Big G for any
    relevant searches. What you should also be doing in selecting relevant niche
    related phrases which you have a chance of competing for.

    Tip. Check to see who's on page one of Google for your chosen search terms
    and make an informed choice on whether you can get your page to one of
    the 10 entries of page one on Google.

    Google page 2 >> Forget It!

    SEO is not necessary. You can get leads, clients, sales without ever doing SEO.

    If you want people surfing the web looking for what you sell, then (and only then) is SEO one of the ways of going about it. Even then, it's not necessary. Google will gladly send them your way for a fee, for instance.

    Search engine optimization is important if you are looking to get organic search traffic from Google and other search engines. This is a long term traffic strategy, it can take months for a site to rank on page #1.

    However, the site has a chance to rank on page #1 only if it is written using the right keywords. This is why keyword research is so important.

    While you wait for your SEO strategies to take effect, you could buy traffic if you have a budget.

    One really effective way to get free targeted traffic and links is using Pinterest.

    Here is a video that shows how Pinterest works.

  • An important aspect of SEO is making your website easy for both users and search engine robots to understand. Although search engines have become increasingly sophisticated, they still can't see and understand a web page the same way a human can. SEO helps the engines figure out what each page is about, and how it may be useful for users.

    SEO attracts people that are looking for you (inbound marketing).

    This is very powerful, especially if the keywords you rank for have action words such as "buy", "rent, "try", etc.

    Of course, your site needs to be nice (design), have good content (salescopy) and it needs to have a way to "capture" traffic so that if people don't buy at first, you can create a relationship with them (interactive marketing) and retarget them a little later.

    The challenge with SEO is that once people rank well with certain keywords, they tend to forget to check the rest because it's free traffic. I made this mistake of not being sharp on checking my stats because it's free traffic and I was ranking very well but my business wasn't making as much money as it should have...

    There's a saying: "you respect what you inspect." Treat your free traffic like if it was paid traffic and SEO will be a blessing for your business.

    It is absolutely necessary to every site. With users spending increasing amounts of time on the internet, they have evolved. It is no longer enough to provide them with only the information they want to find. That means you can rank #1 for a number of search terms relating to your product, and if people don't like what they see, they will leave. Web Design must be focused around creating a conversation between you and your community. SEO is focussed on creating content that creates that community.

  • SEO is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted terms in the world of marketing. SEO's unfair characterization as a kind of alchemy over the past decade has caused many otherwise savvy business people to devalue its importance as part of a good, solid marketing plan for small, mid-sized, and even large businesses.

    Seo is useful if you want to build an organic user base.

    The main difference between SEO and Paid Ads is that the first is slower but usually it consistently grows while with paid ads once you stop spending money you disappear.

    Problay if you are a beginner and you don't have money the best thing to do is start with organic traffic like Youtube or Google

    Making your website easy for both users and search engine robots to understand. Although search engines have become increasingly sophisticated, they still can't see and understand a web page the same way a human can. SEO helps the search engines figure out what each page is about, and how it may be useful for users. For top ranking in search engines SEO plays vital role. SEO is inorganic method for top ranking.

    In today's competitive market, SEO marketing is more important than ever. Search engines serve millions of users per day looking for answers to their questions or for solutions to their problems.

    1. The majority of search engines users are more likely to click on one of the top 5 suggestions in the results pages (SERPS), so to take advantage of this and gain visitors to your website or customers to the online store you need to in the top positions.
    2. SEO is not only about search engines but good SEO practices improve the user experience and usability of a web site.
    3. Users trust search engines and having a presence in the top positions for the keywords the user is searching, increases the web site's trust.
    4. SEO is good for the social promotion of your web site. People who find your web site by searching Google or Yahoo are more likely to promote it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or other social media channels.
    5. SEO is important for the smooth running of a big website. Websites with more than one author can benefit from SEO in a direct and indirect way. Their direct benefit is increase in search engine traffic and their indirect benefit is having a common framework (checklists) to use before publishing content on the site.
    6. SEO can put you ahead of the competition. If two websites are selling the same thing, the search engine optimized website is more likely to have more customers and make more sales.

      I agree with this. Fastest, most reliable, most scalable way to get traffic to a new site. But it doesn't mean you can't SEO your site at the same time...

      The 2 benefits I see of paying for traffic:

      --> it forces you to optimize your pages for conversions - this is what you want in the end? You don't want traffic, you want conversions right?

      --> you don't lose motivation waiting for traffic, you can get instant results

    At the end of the day, SEO work is meant for maximizing the number of clicks and impressions of your website.

    There are plenty of businesses that do not even need a website to thrive.

    There are businesses that do not need a website to generate clients online.

    It all depends on the type of the business and, more importantly, type of clientele or audience being served by it.

    All businesses have their own ideal type of audience. It is possible, therefore, to identify common traits of those people, such as places/platforms that they usually use.

    For example, if your ideal clients would be young active men interested in ketogenic diet, you can be certain to find a lot of them searching Google for more information/products. However, if your ideal audience is pain management doctors, you can probably target more of them through other platforms like Linkedin or various medical forums.

    You see, you need to know where your ideal audience spends the most time on and figure out a way to target them there. Organic traffic is great but it is often not the best way to find and target your ideal audience.

    I hope this helps. Good luck and enjoy the process.

    Some people are always going to click on ads. Some people are always going to skip over the ads. There is just certain business that you will not get if you aren't utilizing that form of marketing. Sometimes SEO is better than PPC and sometimes it isnt. Depends on the type of business you have. Most businesses that will have success with search marketing will eventually do both.

  • Yes! SEO is necessary for very business which is online
    The term SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is clearly defining the answer, but let me explain it to you in some parts i.e.:
    When you publish a site (for any startup online business), first of all you are required to index your site on search engines (to let their crawlers know about your site) as without that it is impossible/very difficult for your website to get indexed on search engines (otherwise it will only be a part of Dark Web).
    But indexing the site only does not get you ranked in top positions (as for every industry/niche or better to say keyword/phrase there are lots of competitors, who are better optimized... not for the search engines, but for the people who use the search engines to find the products and services that they offer), so for that creating niche related content, images SEO, related headings, meta descriptions, data highlighting, better page speed etc. comes into action (i.e. pure white-hat techniques).
    To keep staying in trend and visible to the eyeballs of your qualified visitors (potential customers), you will have to always be helpful for them and create + publish useful content for them.
