Don’t Underestimate the Power of Seattle’s SEO Services: 3 Things You Should Know

If you’re a small business in Seattle, then you’ve got some competition. According to the latest available data, there are 126,139 firms in Washington that employ 20 or less people, 73,997 of which are in Seattle.

That’s a lot of competition. Luckily, Seattle SEO services can give you an edge. Here’s how.

SEO Can Get You Where You Need to Be
SEO experts can get you where you need to be — at the top. That’s the entire point. By streamlining a site to appeal to Google’s ranking algorithm, it’ll start its crawl towards the top of the first search results page, where it belongs. If it’s not there, it might as well not even rank. Research shows that 75% of users never even go past the first page of search results. Worse, one study found that 60% of all organic clicks go to the top three search results. Another study by Chitika found that the very first Google result gets a whopping 33% of the search traffic. In other words, you need to stand at the top.

SEO Has Proven Results
SEO works. According to studies, half (50%) of all mobile searches are done in the hopes of finding local results — your site — and 61% of those searches end in a purchase. If a search doesn’t end in a purchase, then there’s still a good chance it will, as SEO leads have a 14.6% close rate, while outbound leads (such as direct mail or print advertising) have a 1.7% close rate.

SEO Is Cost-Efficient, Too
Best of all, it’s a budget-friendly strategy. SEO leads cost a staggering 61% less than outbound leads do, the ones generated by direct mail, print advertising, cold calling, etc.. This means that you’re going to be making more money at lower costs.
