So what exactly is Website Optimization?
Website optimization or SEO refers to the optimization of individual web pages in order to improve their visibility and ranking in search engine results. It involves optimizing various elements of the page, including the page title, meta description, headings, content, images, and URL, in order to make the page more relevant, informative, and useful to both users and search engines. By optimizing these elements, you can improve the ranking of your pages and drive more relevant traffic to your site.
Why Optimization so Important to Your Business
Increased visibility: Optimizing your website for search engines can improve your ranking in search results and increase your visibility to potential customers.
Increased traffic: Higher search rankings can lead to increased organic traffic to your website, which can lead to more leads and sales.
Better user experience: Many best practices for search engine optimization (SEO) also improve the user experience, such as making your site easier to navigate and faster to load.
Competitive advantage: By optimizing your website, you can gain a competitive advantage over other sites that are not optimized, allowing you to capture more of the available traffic in your market.
Cost-effective marketing: SEO is a cost-effective form of marketing, as you can reach a large audience without having to pay for advertising.
Long-term results: Unlike paid advertising, the results of SEO are long-lasting and continue to provide benefits even after the initial optimization efforts have been completed.
What does it cost to optimize my site?
Optimization costs vary from optimizing a whole site to just optimizing a single page.
The cost for an entire site would obviously vary depending on the number of pages on that site.
You will pay a typical agency $100 to $250 per hour for optimization work. We charge per page because you don’t need to optimize all your pages.
You should optimize your home page and your products and services pages.

Note: There is no real need to optimize the other pages on your site.
Understanding the Content Side of Search Engine Optimization
What works is content that is informative, engaging & relevant that encourages visitors to take action. There is a technical side to this as well.
What do Google and the other search engines want?
We give Google what it wants because Google wants what you want.
Google knows that if you don’t like using their search engine and don’t find the information you want you’ll go somewhere else.
The point being is to use content that you yourself and visitors to your site would find engaging and informative & perhaps willing to share.
Understanding How Google’s Search Engine Works
Once Google discovers a page URL, it visits, or crawls, that page to find out what’s on it.
The Googlebot renders the page and analyzes both the text and non-text content as well as the overall visual layout to decide where it should appear in Search results. The better that Google can understand your site, the better we can match it to people who are looking for your content.” To your left is a video explaining how Google Search Works.
