With hundreds of millions of people using the internet to search for products and services globally it can be very difficult to ensure your brand stands out amongst the crowd. Search Marketing has become increasingly competitive with brands spending millions globally for a spot on the first page of the major search engines. Coming up short will do little to help you and if you find yourself on page 2 then you might as well be on page 40. Organic traffic is often the best for conversions and getting free search engine traffic day in and day out can make all the difference to your bottom line.


Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has become increasingly complex with the major search engines working hard to keep their results natural and free from low quality websites. Google is a great example of this as their search quality teams make no secret of the fact they currently make over 500 algorithmic changes every year, that’s at least one every day. As Google holds the top spot when it comes to search traffic suffering any form of rank reduction penalty can do serious damage to your brand. Filtering from Panda can cause a 90% loss of organic traffic overnight. You can read more about specific problems you may be experiencing on the Penalty Diagnosis page.
