SEO: How Buffalo Businesses rank on Google

Did you know that search engine optimization or SEO is a whole lot more than Google just ranking your website based on a few placed keywords? SEO is as much about the people searching your business as it is about search engine placement.

Trying to know the intentions of the prospects for your Western New York business is just side of the SEO coin. The other side of the coin is creating content in a way that Google and other search engines can find your Buffalo small business website organically.

The Basics of SEO

Search results earned through SEO are organic. This means that money was not paid to a search engine for placement high in their rankings. That is called Paid Per Click advertising.

Furthermore, while a search engine’s business model is to make money, it’s also important to remember that their goal is to deliver answers to their user’s queries.

A study a few years ago by Google referenced by found that only 2.8% of users in the United States actually clicked on paid advertisements.

So, it is that statistic that shows us that Search Engine Optimization – when set up correctly – can pay dividends to your company over time.
