  11. 11. Eye Tracking Study – Enquiro Over 50% of all clicks were on the first 3 organic results. - Location - Relevance - Page Title - Description - URL
  12. 12. How Search Engines Work <ul><li>Search engine bots/spiders are continuously crawling the web, making note of new pages and content. They are not overly sophisticated, which is why html sites with properly built links/navigation often outrank more dynamic sites that use Flash and JavaScript links. </li></ul><ul><li>Specialized search spiders later return to web pages to gather this new information and it is eventually added to the search engine’s index. Again, these bots are basic…they can read text and links, but not much else. </li></ul><ul><li>When you conduct a search, the results are displayed almost magically, but a lot is happening behind the scenes. Results are pulled from the current Index, based on a complex algorithm. </li></ul>

  15. 15. Why It Matters SEO is important because it improves the odds of someone finding your company online. Online visibility can help your credibility and brand awareness. Improved rankings don’t always translate to more traffic and sales. Think like your customers, then verify how people search. SEO can put you in front of the people looking for your products & services. Your online marketing efforts should be focused on an end result. Make sure your website/landing page makes it easy for visitors to sign up, join, request information, buy, or whatever else you seek.
  16. 16. Why It Matters Both Clients Free Traffic Paid Traffic
  17. 17. Why It Matters Google Adwords Keyword Tool 27,000 X 10% = 2700 Free Visitors (PPC would cost $51k) If just 1% get a mortgage: 27 X $2,000 = $54,000/mo. revenue Getting this same traffic from PPC would cost over $50k.
  18. 18. Dear website owner, I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in many of the major search engines and directories.
