You can’t perform search engine optimisation (SEO) once and then expect it to continue to work for you. Some make this mistake and quickly find their business falling behind. Whether they don’t understand SEO, or don’t want to dedicate the time to it, any business owner who treats SEO as a one-off needs to see the bigger picture.
SEO is an ongoing process, and here’s why you should keep up with it.
As the market changes, which it is doing at an incredible rate, so too does the wants and needs of the market and the language involved in searches. As more options and choices appear for products and services, people have to be specific in their language to get their desired result.
Things that affect your business can change from one day to the next, and you need to stay up to date with your target market so that you can meet their demands and use language that resonates with them in their searches.
If you’re one of a few businesses to offer something, chances are that that won’t be the case for long – and then you have to compete with more and more brands to get noticed. If you’re not tracking your competition and their offerings or SEO strategies, you won’t know when they change and pose a threat to your success. If you don’t know what your competitors are doing, you can’t do it better.
This is one of the most important reasons why you need to always be working on your SEO. The algorithms Google uses change once a day, if not more, affecting rankings instantly. They do this because they are continuously working to improve the results that users get because it’s not a one-off task either.
When any update Google pushes through could dramatically affect your rankings, you can’t afford not to work on your SEO regularly.
If you treat SEO as a ‘set and forget’ task, you’re doing your business a disservice. The market, search engine rules and your competitors are always changing and evolving, and you should as well.
