SEO is dead..? Well at least. According to countless articles and speculations, is that true? Let’s find out.
So, is SEO really dead? Should you be focusing your marketing efforts elsewhere? Maybe go all in with paid advertising because you’ll never rank for those target keywords organically. Well, let me share a few facts that I think might really open your eyes to the infinite power of SEO.
49 of marketers report that organic traffic has the best return on investment of any marketing channel. 53 of consumers say that they research products using a search engine before deciding whether or not to buy them. And last but not least the first five organic results in the SERPs account for 67.6 of all clicks this proves the importance of organic search traffic and SEO techniques are actually the way to get some of the traffic.
so why are people saying that SEO is dead well over time SEO elements have ceased delivering results sometimes they died off due to technology changes or maybe just they evolved into something different but this doesn’t mean that SEO is done for or that is invaluable it actually just means that you have to be diligent with your SEO optimization
you just have to keep up with the changes of technology and most of all you have to constantly keep your strategy on point seo is a long game and as marketers say it’s a rewarding one but what are the reason seo is still such an important component of online marketing why do agencies still resort to it as a primary option
well we try to gather some responses from our twitter audience and from our seo marketers here at summers and we got a very great feedback i’m gonna show you some no don’t worry i’m not gonna make you read screenshots all day we summed it up in this list
first of all it’s generally cheap at least cheaper than other marketing activities so pretty cheap
second of all it brings you targeted traffic which means more sales and more return on investment then it forces you to keep your eyes on the ball it might not be a plus for some or a reason why it’s still important but it does it forces you to stay alert at all times with the google algorithm changes and the technical mistakes you might face so you always have to be focused and
last but not least it gets you long-term results let’s dive a little deeper in each one of these shall we it’s generally cheap
okay i’m gonna be serious seo could literally cost you nothing like zero dollars i mean of course it’s better to help yourself with like keyword research and competitive research with tools like summers
for example but the most important and the main tool to do seo you have it already it’s right in here because it’s your brain
semrush and all the other tools that are out there will not help you will not make the strategy for you. you have to think about it and believe me it comes off from here targeted traffic. search engine optimization allows you to target exactly the client. you’re looking for by targeting the keywords they are searching for
in this way it’s much more focused than let’s say display advertising because if you’re not targeting a specific demographic or people that have visited a very popular website that might or might not be interested in your product you’re going exactly so you buy your persona
