Increase Traffic with Search Engines (SEO)

250slidericons-04

85% of consumers search for local businesses online, according to the Local Consumer Review Survey.  Where your business appears in search engine results can impact how many consumers you reach. The first result on a search engine page receives more than half of all clicks; the second result receives about 15% of all clicks; the third result receives 9%. The click-through rate diminishes dramatically as you move further down the page.

If you don’t have a search engine ranking strategy in place, your competitors may occupy the valuable real estate at the top of the page. Moving up one spot in search engine results can increase both your website traffic and your sales. Student Experts specializes in using content to move your business higher for relevant search terms.
