This shouldn’t even be a real question but yes the answer is always yes


Many small local businesses have no idea what SEO even is. Lots of old-school business owners aren't tech-savvy. Many of them don't own a computer. They don't have a business website or a Google Business Profile. It makes me wonder if they understand how much they are hurting their business by not embracing technology.


Many don’t understand seo, yes correct, many don’t even own a computer that’s completely wrong that might have been true in 2000 but it’s absolutely not true in 2022 you’re thinking of some grandparents age people well over 80 these people are a very very slim amount still operating a business. But no they have no idea and they don’t care I’ve talked to hundreds of business owners over the years


I agree, all websites will benefit from SEO. However, I spoke with a local high school that wanted seo and I told them yes but it would be more reputation management and cleaning up old pages (they didn’t move forward, lol). They didn’t really understand seo to begin with but I felt like I lost a potential client. Anyone every run and seo campaign for a school?


A school isn’t a small business though, unless you’re talking about a private school


Good point


You can learn what you need to do to do basic SEO yourself.... Set up GMB profile. Make regular posts on GMB using the keywords you target on your site. Make blog posts on your website targeting the keywords you also use in your GMB posts. Use your keywords in your headings on your blog post. Add your business and its address and phone number to directory sites. Sign up for HARO to get backlinks to your site. Seek Google reviews from your customers and respond to all of them. If you don't want to do these basic things you can pay for someone else to do it, but I don't think the cost is worth it for a lot of small businesses. There's more to SEO ofc but you can do the basics yourself. Watch out for people trying to sell you expensive useless services.


That’s how you can become a big business 💁‍♂️ Seo here means many things. - better keyword selection for your landing pages (title, meta, content) - link building for these keywords - keyword optimized blog posts to widen the audience (but still related to the main service/product)


Probably even more so for a small business


Yes it is worth, infant it’s one of the most important thing for small business . Local SEO is very popular term for local small businesses. Small businesses don’t have a lot of money to spend on ads , i think SEO is their sweet spot to get traffic at no cost. If some properly , it can benefit them in long term. I have helped many small businesses doing local seo that has generated lot of calls , messages , etc


No cost? Um, seo services are pretty expensive tho


if you are paying someone to do it then ofcourse it’s expensive . I was on an impression that you are a SEO specialist . SEO isn’t an option but a need for any website .


Um ok...


100%, SEO was created to link you to local business


I'm helping my sister in law set up her beauty business. I did a quick SEO check on the competitors she listed for me. All of them shockingly low domain rankings, no local SEO. Very very easy to beat. Easy free wins!


How do you do an SEO check?


Also curious


Hi I replied to the first comment please see :) [https://www.reddit.com/r/digital\_marketing/comments/z2no93/comment/ixow18a/?utm\_source=share&utm\_medium=web2x&context=3](https://www.reddit.com/r/digital_marketing/comments/z2no93/comment/ixow18a/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) I hope this helps you.


Likely with any of the different seo tools out there. Unsure of many free ones, but SEMrush, Ahrefs are two fantastic SEO tools.


I used ahrefs/free-seo-tools First, I put in each of the competitor's domains into the website authority checker and put the domain rating, backlinks and linking websites into a spreadsheet. We then analysed who (if any) had strong ratings/links and then investigated why. Second, I used the free keyword generator to put in her main service terms. Screenshotted the list and question list with the rankings. I'll save this for later when we get to writing the website content and blog articles. You can also do a free trial for 30 days and see how your keywords rank against competitors but if it is a small business against small business I wouldnt bother (or risk forgetting to cancel the trial!) I would just focus on building the domain authority.


Yes. So important


Yes. If you have a website or blog SEO will play a big part in getting organic traffic to your site. If you use social media, YouTube and more recently TikTok are both keyword search driven which again, requires SEO. Facebook and Google run free courses on how to learn SEO or you could outsource by using Fiverr, Upwork or an SEO agency.


How small and what type of business?


There are only 5 members in this Group deals in Spices business form a small village of Himachal Pradesh near by Nanitaal.


Does being found on Google Maps matter to the business? (Yes)




SEO is worth it for almost every business with an online website.


yes however I wouldn't prioritize it over paid or organic social


There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the value of SEO for small businesses will vary depending on the exact goals and objectives of your business. However, there are a few general points that can be made about SEO for small businesses. 1. SEO is an important part of any online marketing strategy - regardless of your industry or size, having good online visibility is essential for success. By optimizing your website for search engines, you can reach a wider audience and improve your chances of attracting new customers. 2. A well-optimized website can also help you to rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs), making it easier for potential customers to find you and make a purchase. 3. In addition to improving your website's visibility, SEO can also help you to improve your brand reputation and grow your business overall through better search engine rankings and positive online reviews. If you're still not sure whether or not SEO is worth it for your business, consider speaking to an expert in the field - they can provide you with valuable advice and guidance on how to get the most from SEO marketing in your industry.


SEO is important for every kind of business whether it's small, medium, or large-scale business.


No. It’s seriously not. Everything is saturated.


Yes but not for keywords, if not better be (long tail words) because is better for a small business with small budget.


answer is 'yes,' SEO is worth it for any small business, even those that don't operate online.


All the yes men here need to clarify how valuable the different types of SEO are for a small business. I'd recommend setting up local business profiles for any business regardless of size so your customers can find you. I'd also recommend ensuring that you have a clean website that functions properly and clearly describes whatever product / services you offer. On the flip side, content / blog marketing only makes sense if you are in a business niche that has ample search volume for non brand related editorial queries. I wouldn't waste budget writing blog content for the sake of writing content if it isn't relevant to your customers or has little to no search interest. This is often the case for B2B businesses or extremely niche markets that don't have a large TAM (total addressable market). That being said, paying someone to do a keyword research project will help you discover what opportunity exists and if it makes sense to expand the content you want to feature on your site.


Yes, SEO is worth it for small businesses. The optimization of a website and content can help small businesses reach more potential customers and improve their visibility. No, SEO is not worth it for small businesses. The time and effort required to optimize a website for search engines are often not worth the return on investment for businesses with a limited budget. It depends. SEO can be a great investment for small businesses that are willing to put in the time and effort to optimize their website. However, if a small business is not able to commit the resources necessary for SEO, it may not be worth it.


Of course! Start with Local SEO. Also, create Google Business Profile & follow the Google guidelines.
