What is SEO and can it really help your business? Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the practice of “optimizing” or skillfully “fine-tuning” a web site in order to achieve more web traffic from higher rankings on search engines. SEO experts study search engines carefully and use this knowledge to help a web site rank higher.
The best SEO strategies involve working with many unique aspects that affect your ranking, like on-page and off-page elements, meta-tags, titles, page copy, image information, incoming links and keywords, just to name a few.
Of course, the goal of any reputable SEO expert should be to help you obtain a higher ranking while targeting carefully chosen keywords that will actually bring you business. In the end, your site must to be listed in the top five rankings on Google, because that's really where business happens. If you aren't listed there now, chances are you're missing out on business.
How important is it to be ranked on the front page of a major search engine like Google? Here are a few of the latest stats on Search Engine Ranking and SEO:
90% of all searches end on page-one of Google, this means...
Only 10% of searches ever go to page two
More than 42% of searches end with the #1 listing
Nearly 78% of searches end with the first 5 listings

A word about local Search Engine Ranking For many businesses it is more important to rank highly for local searches than for national searches. If you are a small business or organization who primarily (or exclusively) serves a certain local or regional geographic area (like Chattanooga, TN), there's no need for you to compete with the entire country for a top search engine listing. Your business is local and that is where your focus will give you the largest return on investment.
Google is placing a huge amount of energy and focus on producing quality local ranking results. We stay on top of what Google is doing so that you can rest easy and stay on top of your business affairs. The MARKET 248 team loves working with small businesses and we have become experts at local rankings. We know what it takes for you to rise above your local competition on a search engine and we'll work hard to get you there.
The Market 248 Industry Loyalty Commitment Since we work with so many small businesses who target specific areas, we felt it was important to develop a policy of loyalty and commitment to our customers that would protect their interests. Our Industry Loyalty Commitment says this, "If we are working for a business in a certain industry, we will not work for another client offering the same service within that same geographical area." In other words, if you are an attorney practicing Family Law in Chattanooga, TN, we won't work for another Family Law Attorney in Chattanooga. After, it would be kind of silly of us to pit our customers against each other for top rankings on Google.
