Organic search is one of the most widely used inbound marketing channels. To organize your website for optimal SEO performance, there are three main areas of SEO to work on.
Generally, marketers work with the people who manage and control the website to optimize it. We actually don't dig in ourselves most of the time. It wouldn't be normal where we're actually editing the code or making these kinds of changes to a website. It's more common that digital marketers might brief a web developer on this or get stuff from a content team if you're not already part of that content team.
The objective of all of this is to structure the website in such a way to make it more visible and crawlable for inclusion in the Google organic database – or index. The result of this is that your site will appear for more free organic searches. And those keywords, as you're trying to rank, will start to push and open up, reducing your need for things like paid search, although they will work together.Back to Top
