Is SEO for my website crucial for marketing?

Hi Hannah,
SEO is crucial.  It lets you read a potential customers mind.  

When they do a search for a product or service, they find you.  Perfect.

It is not complicated.  Google needs to see two things:

1.  Do you have a page about that specific search term.   If you sell wedding flowers in Halifax you need a page about wedding flowers in Halifax:   "Wedding Flowers in Halifax"    for example:


2.  You need people to link to that page.   So you can link to it from facebook, from a blog, for twitter and ask your vendors or clients to link to it as well.

Also very important is to have a good Google My business page.

99% of the time yes. There are very few exceptions- large enough brand and presence.

70% of consumers are doing research before making purchases online. You want to take active measures to ensure you are found in search engines.

SEO doesn't work anymore. Not like it did in the good 'ol days.

I define SEO as a hack to get your website to the top of the search results. It doesn't work in a 1:1 ratio, and probably not a 1:100 in terms of effort:ranking.

Basically, it's gotten a LOT harder to rank on search engines like Google IF you don't already have some solid rankings. Sorry to be a major buzzkill, but as they say, the truth hurts.
