Search engine optimization (SEO) is a deliberate process of getting website traffic from free, organic search results or via links from other pages on the web. Search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo crawl the internet trying to understand what each and every page is about so it can provide searchers with relevant search results.
During an search engine optimization process we analyze your website to ensure that all the on page elements – those you can see and those can’t see in the html code, are there and aligned with the search intent of your prospective customers.

Why SEO Matters for Your Fuquay-Varina Business
A recent study demonstrated that less than 6% of search engine users visited the second page of results. You can see the click through rate for each of the first 20 positions in the chart on the rights.
In reporting the First Page vs. Second Page study the team at Gravitate Online said:
A sample of over 8 million clicks shows that over 94% of users clicked on a first page result and less than 6% actually clicking to the second page and selecting a result displayed there. One of the biggest drop off’s is between the 10 spot (bottom of the first page) and the 11 spot (top of the second page) from 2.71% down to 1.11%. That’s a 143% dip from one position to the next.
What’s the moral of the study? If your website is not on page one of Google your business is practically invisible to the world!
