As buyer demographics change, B2B marketers have had to shift priorities to adapt. According to Hubspot, 61% of marketers consider improving search engine optimization (SEO) and growing their organic presence to be their top priority.
The rise of digital-native decision makers has highlighted the need for B2B experiences to reflect modern B2C shopping. One thing that hasn’t changed is that first impressions are of the utmost importance. What has changed, however, is where those impressions are happening. For this new batch of buyers, search results are the new elevator pitch.
More than 70% of B2B decision-makers say they start researching their purchase though a generic search. Accordingly, search engine optimization has been an important pillar of B2C marketing for some time now, and with changing buyer behaviors and preferences, it’s no longer viable for B2B brands to sit on the sidelines.
SEO is the practice of attracting high-quality traffic and increasing visibility for a website through search engine results. Search engines employ bots to crawl webpages to determine factors such as expertise, authority, and trustworthiness. These factors establish the rank of the website, impacting where on a search engine results page (SERP) the site will appear.
Anyone who has ever used Google knows how intimidating the pages upon pages of search results can be, so trying to ensure you’re ranking high on the list can be daunting. Luckily, B2B brands can learn from the experience of B2C brands to start implementing SEO best practices to reach the right customers, and drive consistent, high-quality traffic.
SEO can be broken down into three fundamental categories: on-page SEO, off-page SEO, and technical SEO. We’re going to dive into on-page SEO – an essential factor to start improving your website’s search rankings, visibility, and value.
