I am very interested in knowing the answer to this one. I am researching my new business, I am thinking of setting up a website to go along with it (which I can do myself),however, a lot of people are telling me that I should employ an SEO expert to ensure hits on google etc. Even had a company call me to try and get me to sign up to their services, but I'm dubious as I've heard bad things about them - so just how important is SEO and how do you ensure you get a good ranking

SEO Is important if your a web based business. Its also important if you are a local business as most people will search on Google for localised services now instead of using things like yellow pages. What type of business are you getting in to?

It's absolutely putting either a little bit of time or money into it. You could be the best company in the world with the most impressive website in history, but if nobody is able to find it, none of it is going to matter. You need to draw people to your website, and with so much traffic coming through search engines, SEO is one of the best ways to do this. Either look into it yourself, or hire somebody to do it for you. There are lots of people who can rework web content to make it more SEO friendly.

Hey, I fully agree your words. It goes without saying, that it's important to do your best and not give up. Life is full of obstacles, but our main aim pass them through. However, advice which I can give on the topic this find the backlink list, which will help promote a site on different forums either very fine and try raising popularity compiling own list for SEO optimization. By the way, in my experience I have been using gsa ser verified site list for several years which helps me to save a lot of time on promoting my own interests.

I would argue with the above statements. SEO is really difficult and costs a huge amount of money. I have worked with many people and the ROI on SEO can be terrible if its done incorrectly and to do it correctly costs a huge amount. Personally i would look at over all digital strategy to understand where you can make the best conversion with the best ROI. SEO is not for everyone and it all depends on the competitive nature of the area you are moving in to. It also takes a long time to achieve effective and good positioning on a search engine.

I think those who ignore SEO do so at their peril. Not all SEO services are expensive, indeed there are many SEO actions you can do yourself at no cost. So yes, it can be expensive for some companies but good SEO will pay for itself and much much more in the long term.

Local SEO can be simple enough and you can do it your self. International or national will take allot of time and can be very expensive.

SEO is important because it keeps the search results fair. The higher you rank in results pages, the more clicks and traffic your site will generate. SEO also improves user experience, making it more likely for customers to become repeat buyers. And SEO is cost-effective.

In some cases SEO works but in some cases not.
And I would like to begin with definition of SEO.
SEO are actions to connect your target audience with your site through a web search and other digital marketing channels to achieve business goals.
As you can see SEO is not abour ranking. Higher ranking doesn't generate more clicks. Screenshot_1.jpg
SEO is the part of a marketing. It is all about people, their needs, pains.
