Background: As the need to draw visitors to your website becomes more compelling, search engine optimisation (SEO) becomes that much more important.In her previous article Thunga MM explored how vital is a website for a business.

Business owners view SEO marketing as an expense that may or may not generate desired returns on investment. This could primarily be due to lack of in-depth knowledge of how SEO works and it's potential to generate traffic that can translate to revenues. It may be viewed as a short-term strategy, but the results of such approaches are never satisfactory. SEO has the potential to influence your entire business and the way you conduct business operations.
What is your website without SEO? It is just one of the millions out there. Go for the best search engine optimisation strategies and your website assumes a distinctive character. Search engine spiders find it and assign it rankings depending on the content. When people search for a product or service that you offer, the keywords they use and the keywords you use in your site helps your site to be listed on the first few important pages. Onsite optimisation supported by offsite strategies assist in bringing customers to your doorstep through improved visibility.

One reason why small companies with a steady business show little interest in SEO is that they may not be in a position to handle the increased traffic and inquiries. This could be self-defeating when SEO marketing has the potential to make you a global business. If you opt for SEO it does not automatically translate to a sudden deluge of orders you will find difficult to execute. It is organic and grows and by that time you can take steps towards digital transformation and infrastructure to cope with more business. SEO also has the potential of unlocking other relevant business opportunities to help you add to product lines.
