In today’s world, the primary channel of research for the modern consumer is without a doubt: Google. The ubiquity and instant access to comprehensive information that search engines provide has transformed the traditional ways customers find information, make comparisons, read reviews before they make that final purchase.

As consumer behaviour evolves, so must companies and that is why grasping SEO is more important than ever.

Search Engine Optimisation (or known for short as SEO) is a digital marketing strategy to help your website rank highly on Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs)

How to understand a typical SERP

Usually when you search on search engines, you’ll see the following:

  • Paid Ads
  • Organic search results

Why does ranking on organic search results matter?

From Figure 1, it shows the click-through-rate of results, and it evidently that  1 out of 3 people who arrive on the search page instinctively click on the 1st positioned result (for both desktop and mobile pages).

As the search engine result position (SERP) goes lower, so does the click through rate. And this is just page 1. If your company’s website falls on the 2nd or 3rd pages and beyond, you will lose out to other companies who rank higher than you.
