Why SEO is Important

From newspapers to the financial industry and from the music world to our social interactions, the internet disrupted everything — marketing included. The disruption highlighted the importance of SEO as essential to every marketing strategy. SEO isn’t an expendable tactic nor is it a shortcut. It's a foundation for companies to meet customers and is critical to the success and survival of nearly every business in almost all industries.

How SEO Works

SEO is much more than keywords. It requires rigorous technical analysis of a website's structure and user experience. It requires creative and ongoing content campaigns and a dedicated outreach strategy to earn links from respected websites and publications. This is more than one SEO consultant can provide. When this comprehensive strategy is well-executed, Google takes notice and introduces your company to more customers, increasing sales and revenue.

Considerations

Speed

Make no mistake, SEO is a long game. You won’t get immediate results, and anyone who says otherwise is just selling. That said, if you’re patient, if you set up a strategic foundation and invest time and resources the right way, SEO will always pay off.

Guarantees

Anyone who makes specific SEO-related guarantees, like “I’ll get you to the top spot in Google,” or “I’ll get you x number of links,” is just trying to close a deal. Setting goals is great. But specific promises are foolish and unreliable in the SEO Chicago game.

Shortcuts

The most important thing to avoid is an agency that takes shortcuts. The SEO industry, in many ways, was built on shortcuts, but those days are over. Google is keenly aware of tactics intended to game the system, and it’s swift to punish companies that don’t play fair.
