Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of making a site’s visibility and categorization easier, which helps online users to distinguish one company or business from others. SEO enables one to monitor site performance effectively through tools like Google analytics and keyword tools among others, boosting the site’s rankings.
Why SEO Is Important?
• Tracking Competitor performance
With SEO, it is easier to keep up with competitors’ activities and performance and increase a business’ outreach through its site. This can be done by analyzing the number and quality of online users that the site engages, giving you an idea on what to work on in order for you to do just as well, or maybe even surpass your competitors.

It is easier to manage web content using SEO since the site manager has been able to edit already existing content with changes as they come in. This allows for accurate content sharing and making the site a more reliable source of information.
• Drive more site traffic
Companies/website owners are able to increase traffic to their sites by using SEO, and this can be maximized by linking high quality (and therefore high traffic) sites to their websites and updating already existing content.
Because new content is better than old content, the more a site manager revises existing web content, the more visits the site is likely to gain from subscribers, increasing the awareness of the site or company’s product and in particular circumstances, the profit margin.
• Easy to track site users’ locations
Since SEO is user-friendly, it is easy to track the high-value visitors that are interested in what the site has got to offer, the locations of the site users, and which content engages them most. Such results can be obtained from Google analytics results, and they boost the business or site owner’s confidence and success.
• Social Media Marketing
With SEO, it is easy to engage Social Media Marketing, even while it is on the rise. The increased use of sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, YouTube, and others attracts a larger number of online users to different sites today as compared to the previous time when we only had to rely on shared content on websites. It is very easy to link social media buttons to sites and to consequently, share the content in real-time through the different sites.
• Cost Minimization
SEO allows business owners to use the cost minimization-profit maximization approach in a way that one can increase their site’s traffic at no cost (even without having to pay per click). Business owners can then put their savings in other areas that are more effective than advertising.
• Product Trust and Credibility
The use of SEO helps business or site owners to build more trust and credibility for their products. If a user fails to get a product or service through a search engine, their trust in the product dwindles with that failure.
Conclusively, the use of SEO has simplified the way of tracking business progress, competitor performance, increased web traffic, reach of products or services through social media and increased sale of products and services. Eventually, businesses have improved performances and increased their profit margin.
