Search Engine is not a new concept amongst Kenyan digital marketers anymore. People now appreciate the value and importance of making sure they are easily accessible on various search engines such as google, bing, and yahoo.
In case the concept is new to you worry not. We will break down SEO in simpler terms so that you will have an idea if not a thorough understanding by the end of this blog. Search engine optimization is the deliberate measures you put in place to ensure that your site ranks high on the Search Engine Results Page when a user enters a search query.
Nowadays before a customer makes a purchase more often than not the first place they turn to is google(google is one example of a search engine but for this text, we will use google to mean search engine). The same case when it comes to searching for information, people run to google first. The whole idea of optimization is to make sure when prospective clients are looking for a product/service you sell, they land on your page for you to convert them into actual buyers.
Search Engine Optimisation is a huge opportunity for your business to leverage. Contrary to paid advertising ie Pay Per Click, SEO is free and more long-lasting. However, it might take a while before you see the results of an SEO campaign.PPC on the other hand provides instant results but is short-lived due to budget constraints. You miss out on a lot of organic traffic when your site is not optimized for search engines.
