location (on the Google results page, of course). Being found
online when a user types in a keyword in a search engine can
determine the success or failure of your company.

Having a top ranking site on Google can bring your company
tremendous benefits, including:

  • More than 90% of buying decisions begin online. Having your
    website rank at the top of search engine results will provide your
    brand visibility.
  • Top positioned sites get more traffic. In fact, research shows
    that the first 10 results on Google, which make up page one of the
    search results, receive close to 90% of all click-through
    traffic.

  • Having a top search engine ranking position (SERP) will help
    your company reduce inbound marketing and advertising costs

What I am an expert in is content and as a content marketer I
know that publishing relevant, valuable and quality content is key.
Search engines are smart and they work hard at trying to deliver
users the right information when they type something in the search
bar. For this very reason, producing results that are seen as
relevant by search engines cannot be overlooked.

The more unique, well-written, engaging, socially shared and
buzz-worthy your content is, the higher your ranking will be.
