These days, a high-quality, responsive website is not just an additional way to drive web traffic but the bare minimum needed to stay competitive. Today’s websites need to offer unique and compelling content, delivered consistently in an easy-to-read format, and they need to stand out from the crowd of other sites doing the same thing. That is where Search Engine Optimization (SEO), combined with a user-friendly site experience, can help companies direct the right traffic to their sites, find the right audience for their content, and convert that audience into leads and investors.
What is SEO? The short answer: it is a way of building your site’s content to ensure that when your target audience searches for relevant topics on the leading search engines, your site shows up in the top results.
How do you optimize your site? That is a bit more complicated. Imagine SEO as a game of football, only the end zone keeps moving around on the field. Today, your site may show up as the number one result for “Regional Centers in Sacramento”; tomorrow, you may be on the second page. Google and other search engines keep changing the algorithms they use, and do not release the full details of these changes. Search engine optimizers spend countless hours studying analytics and comparing search results to learn what SEO techniques work, what has stopped working, and what actions could actually penalize your site.\
