Producing relevant content that users share with their own network helps brands increase their exposure. It also extends their reach towards potential customers and potential employees when used as a recruitment tool.

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It’s the practice of increasing both the quality and quantity of website traffic, as well as exposure to the brand, through non-paid search engine results. It’s about understanding what people are seeking for online, the answers they are looking for, the words they’re using, and the type of content they wish to consume. Knowing the answers to these questions will allow one to connect to the people who are searching online for the solutions. While paid advertising, social media, and other online platforms can generate traffic to websites, the majority of online traffic is driven by search engines. Optimizing a site will help deliver better information to search engines so that the content can be properly indexed and displayed within search results.
