Uncomfortable Facts about SEO for Small Businesses

Optimum7.com recently published an article entitled “Small Business SEO,” in which it reveals some disconcerting truths about SEO for small businesses.  Although the author proclaims that SEO offers small businesses an opportunity to compete online with businesses of all sizes, in fact, if you don’t have deep pockets it is actually nearly impossible to compete with larger competitors who can outspend you over time.

Here are the facts:

  • It’s expensive.
  • It takes significant time.
  • 68% of all searchers don’t go past the first page; 98% don’t go past the third page.
  • SEO never ends.
  • SEO depends on the consistent generation of new content.
  • There are no guarantees.

So what is a small business supposed to do? Hire us! Just kidding.
