The world of business has quickly evolved with the introduction of the internet. Now at least half of the developed world has access to the internet and 90% of people find sites through search engines, predominantly Google, which drives online purchases. Online allows businesses to have a global reach at a fraction of the cost of normal businesses. It is not surprising then that online is growing at 40% each year in the UK.
Companies cannot afford to have a low search engine ranking and this is why search engine optimisation or SEO is important. SEO is the modification of internal and external aspects of websites to achieve a top search engine ranking for specific keywords. SEO is widely accepted as having massive economic benefits. 21 billion web pages battle for search engine supremacy.
