Youth to Marketing (Y2M) recently launched a new infographic on the importance of search engine optimization. According to the infographic, 2.9 million searches are performed online per minute. This amounts to 175 million searches every hour, and 4 billion searches every day. The final total is an unprecedented 131 billion searches being performed online per month. These online searches drive 400% more traffic to web pages than social media networks or integration.
According to Vanessa Fox, “SEO is not about tricks of manipulating algorithms. It’s about understanding the online landscape and evolving to meet your customers where they are.” In other words, SEO is still a credible and viable tool for any online marketing campaign. Not only can it help drive traffic to your sites, it can also generate a lasting buzz about your products and services. SEO can also help your sites and blogs rank higher on leading search engines. This can generate leads, along with recurring business and revenue in this globally competitive marketplace.
Based on the infographic, 93% of online experiences begin with a search engine. While 44% of online shoppers begin by using search engines, 60% of clicks go to the top three organic search results. 70% of these links search users click on are also organic, not paid. The infographic also states that 75% of users never scroll past the first page of search results. An additional 80% of search engine users say they never click on sponsored search results. While 42% of all searchers click on the top-ranked result, only 23% ever click on a sponsored link. 50% of all consumers are more likely to click on search result if the brand appears multiple times on the results page.
While there are several tools within the SEO realm, blogging continues to soar in global popularity. In fact, companies that blog receive twice as many inbound links than those that do not. According to Danny Sullivan on the possibility of fully automated SEO, “Tools are nice. But we’ve had tools for years to build houses, yet we don’t have completely automated house building.” In other words, SEO still matters and is a vital tool in securing both commercial growth and expansion.
