Keyword Selection and Its importance for SEO

SEO is a long term process, normally, so to see results you need to invest a lot more effort and labour than you do for PPC. For this central reason effective keyword research ensures that your efforts are not misplaced. Over and over I hear of companies who invested time in researching term A , which is :

  • Unachieveable
  • Is of little business value
  • Delivers traffic but traffic that doesn’t convert
  • Has cost so much that it makes the CPA not cost effective

  • You need to ensure that your business objectives are inline with the program and if you can aid your SEO comapny in this stage they can more fully carry out your business needs
