SEO in Austin

So what is SEO in Austin?

Before I begin that – let me ask you – what is the purpose you have in mind searching “SEO in Austin“?

Are you needing SEO (search engine optimization)? or are you trying to see what your options are?

Either way its all fine. I’m glad you found me – SEO in Austinlet’s talk a little about what’s in SEO in Austin for you.

Most business owners in Austin or anywhere else in the world,  make the logical assumption that when they have their website designed, whomever they hired to do their website has done their  SEO. Its what had to be included because its a website because website = SEO, right?

And secondly, most business owners when accosted by so many businesses approaching them to be hired for SEO services, naturally fall back on what and who they know and assume that their original website designer can perform those exact same services – maybe cheaper to boot since they have already done business with them before.

Duh – right?

I mention this for a reason. First there are two huge assumptions going through this thought process, maybe more but two huge ones.

1. A website designer is also an SEO expert –

2. A business owner has to understand SEO before they feel their can profit from it

Let’s address #1 in this article more in depth. An Austin website designer most likely IS very familiar with SEO and knows there are certain places in the html code to place specific words so that a page can be considered optimized. And human desire to only have to work with a single entity is so strong – most of the time businesses work with GREAT designers who have PEDESTRIAN SEO skills just because its easier and on the surface it makes sense.

And that’s not your fault.

You would only go to a dentist for issues related to your teeth and a general practitioner for an ear ache – right? Because you understand the boundaries of each plus you don’t have the added layer of confusion by your dentist calling you and asking if you have an ear ache.
