Do I need SEM When I'm doing SEO

In Search Engine Optimization, you improve your ranking organically on search engines to increase the amount of traffic you get and the quality of that traffic. Search Engine Marketing was initially a term that referred to all efforts to increase traffic and quality from search engines – SEO and paid search alike. Now, though, SEM is used primarily to refer to paid search – a component of PPC where you pay for a listing, usually above the organic search results, on a search engine.

Frequently Asked Questions

1 - What is SEO?

According to Moz (What is SEO?), one of the top blogs in the industry, “Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results.” This can take many forms, but is rooted in keyword research, content creation, technical improvements, and building trust – all major factors that influence how a page or domain will rank on a search engine without paying to show at the top.

2 - Do You Need SEO?

Do you need SEO to have a beautiful website and an amazing product/service? No. Do you need SEO to drive traffic to that website and sell that product/service? Yes. The Wild West days of the internet where the major players were undecided and keywords with high potential were not matched to good websites are gone. Even among seemingly niche areas like “St. Louis real estate agents” competition to rank is fierce. SEO is needed to outshine your competitors and get eyes on your brand.

3 - How is SEO Pricing Determined?

Essentially, our bid is based on how many hours we think it will take to do your project right the first time. SEO is truly one those areas where you get what you pay for. If someone gives you a number that is too good to be true, it probably is. You may find the content is not high-quality, that they don’t do their research ahead of time, or that they use black hat tactics to build low-quality links that can get you penalized by Google down the line.
