Does search engine optimization (SEO) still have value? Some people argue that SEO is a waste of time because Google and other search engines are supposed to find your website naturally. Media Relations Agency’s digital marketing team wholeheartedly disagrees. When done correctly, and with current trends in mind, investing in SEO is one of the smartest moves you can make. 

Consider how most of us search the internet: 

  1. Experts say as many as 75% of us don’t scroll past the first search engine results page (SERP). You simply won’t get attention if you’re on page three, five or six. 
  2. Most of us make quick decisions on what to click and what to avoid. There are only a few seconds between our query and our click. If you want to earn that click, you need to have an engaging title and description. Of course, the content on your landing page also needs to be spot-on or folks will click away just as fast.
  3. Some of us ignore paid search results. You should invest in organic search even if you have an active paid search campaign running. 

SEO is constantly evolving. There’s a lot to do! If you only have half a team, your SEO investment may not be worthwhile. 

In addition to keyword research, site structure and backlinks, our SEO specialists consider the regularly changing algorithms as well as tactics for mobile searches, voice searches and featured snippets. For maximum impact, you also need expert writers and web developers. 

The benefit of working with a full-service agency such as Media Relations Agency is that we have those professionals. We have the skill sets and expertise to tackle even the most complicated tasks.
