Seriously? Seriously? Seriously?!?!?

After the hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of blog posts, newspaper and magazine articles, podcasts, conference presentations, and the like on the topic of SEO that have been published over the past 20 years, you still don't know why a SEO is important for a website? Really?

I'm sorry. I don't mean to belittle anyone, but I just can't believe this is a serious question nowadays. My mother, who can't figure out email on her own, knows what SEO is and what it's supposed to do.

Here's the deal. If you want your website to appear in the search engine results, you essentially have two choices:
  1. Use search engine optimization tactics to maximize the chances your pages will be found in the search results by your target audience; OR
  2. Ignore SEO and hope for the best.

So, OK -- technically -- if you don't care about rankings, if you don't care if your pages ever appear in the search engine results, then SEO is not important for your website. If you have a robust referral program that already brings you all the traffic you can handle, or you have an unlimited budget for paid advertising, or you're simply creating a site for your own personal enjoyment and don't need anyone else to read or view it, you can safely ignore SEO. In those cases, SEO is, in fact, not important at all.

But if you do care about those things, then SEO is important. Because that's what SEO is designed to do:bring you the most possible traffic from organic search listings by getting you the best possible rankings in those search listings when people search on the most useful key words and phrases related to what you offer.

  • To take advantage of this and gain visitors to your web site or customers to your on-line store you need to rank as higher as possible.
  • To improve the user experience and usability of a web site.
  • Userís trust search engines and having a presence in the top positions for the keywords the user is searching increases the web siteís trust.
  • SEO is also good for the social promotion of your web site. People who find your web site by searching Google or Yahoo are more likely to promote it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or other social media channels.

I dont think that such posts make any sense other than for the person who started the thread cos he/she is simply trying to increase the post count. Good reply by Torka anyways, she has been keeping up the good work. Thanks Torka.
