Why is SEO Important?

If you have a website, you probably want people to find it. In terms of sheer volume, this is like trying to find that PDF you saved on one of the DVDs in your collection of 250 billion. Search Engine Optimization, SEO, deals with getting your website as high as possible in the result lists of search engines. For that to happen, two things need to be taken into consideration: User Intent (what exactly is the person searching for), and Page Quality (how well is the web page providing the information that is being sought).

When the average visitor spends 90 seconds on a web page, engaging, relevant, and consistent website content is not nice to have – it is a necessity.
