1. Introduction:

In the world of digital marketing, SEO is a buzzword that’s been around for quite some time. However, not everyone understands its significance, particularly for their business. In this article, we’re going to delve into the basics of SEO, the difference between SEO and SEM, and why you need it for your business. We'll also share Untamed's approach to SEO and how we can help improve your website visibility.

2. Let’s be practical - what is SEO?

SEO or search engine optimization refers to the process of optimizing a website to rank higher in organic search engine results. When you search for something on Google, for instance, the first page of results is the most valuable real estate on the internet. As a business owner, you want your website to rank as high as possible on that first page, ideally in the top three, so that your potential customers can easily find you.

3. The Difference between SEO and SEM:

SEM or search engine marketing is a paid form of advertising that aims to promote your website in search engine results pages (SERPs). On the other hand, SEO focuses on organic strategies to improve your website’s visibility in search results. While both approaches aim to drive traffic to your website, SEO provides long-term and sustainable growth while SEM offers a short-term boost in visibility.

4. Why Do You Need SEO?

SEO is crucial for your business to establish a strong online presence. It improves your website’s visibility, which translates to more traffic, visitors, and leads that can result in conversions. With the right SEO strategy, you can build brand credibility, establish strong brand awareness, and enjoy a competitive advantage.
