    I'm not sure if this is the right section but is SEO important in getting more traffic? I've mostly just been doing what I want and what looks nice with my website and I've been getting decent traffic. Well, that depends on what decent is, right? So I've been wondering if hiring an SEO specialist would increase my traffic a lot. Any advice?

    Yes, SEO is important and is considered one of the most cost-effective marketing strategies. Ranking on the top of search results can significantly increase traffic to your website. Though, doing some research before hiring an SEO Specialist is recommended.

    Only if you are ranking for the right keywords. And the traffic converts. No point in ranking #1 for something nobody is searching for or if your website fails to meet the needs of the visitor.

    SEO helps to increase the website ranking over the SERP, which ultimately helps to increase the website traffic. So yes, SEO is helpful to increase the website traffic.

    Make sure you are building quality backlink from the websites, which are having domain authority greater than your website.

    It is very essential. Without a respectable SEO, only people who have your web address will be able to access your website and that would restrict the exposure of your website. Whereas, if you have an up to date SEO, your site/services/other website content will be visible on major search engines like Google and Bing, and get more hits which means more people will be accessing your website and considering to employ your services.

    I personally feel that you could never spend too much on getting some proper SEO (if you're not paying more than what you are getting). It lists you and your services to more and more people which effectively increases your market and the number of your clients. It could even be thought of 'as' a mode of advertisement since it will increase your site's exposure.

    Thank you for your replies! I went ahead and contacted the SEO company that my friend recommended. I asked them if they can do an SEO audit asap and asked for a quote as well.

    Yes of course, SEO is the most important in terms of traffic generation. The most effective traffic generation are social bookmarking, social media, youtube video submission, squidoo lens, yahoo answers, and article submission.

    If you are only concerned with traffic generation, I would agree. But, if you are concerned about doing SEO properly, and getting the best results, ignore the last three.

    The issue here is that seo for your website must be done rightly in the sense that it must be a white-hat seo. doing the black-hat one e.g creating thousands of low quality backlinks to quickly boost your site rankings will seriously hurt your website. it must be done in the right way for long term results like crating backlinks in high authority websites like Hp, CNN, AMAZON, Google, TED etc. SEO is a long term process that takes time for it to rank a website high to gain web traffic.

    Without SEO no one can spread the awareness of their business quickly. Marketing requirements of a business will compel them to take the help of SEO strategies. Until and unless you spread your business awareness worldwide, you can't augment the traffic towards your website. It's necessary and important as well.

    Of course, SEO is playing vital role for getting traffic to your site. SEO working on 4 element Keyword, Content and blogging, Back links, URL's. SEO is the most important investment you can make to drive more traffic to your website. These 4 elements are a good place to start, but since search engine algorithms are always evolving, there are countless other elements that can be tweaked to improve SEO.


    Thanks

    As per my knowledge search engines are the most effective medium for any site's visibility. and if you can rank higher in the search engine than you will get the tsunami of the traffic to your site.

    So if you wants to ignore search engine medium for your site's traffic than you don't need any SEO for you. But if you wants to take advantage of that SEA of the traffic than I think SEO is very important factor and you surely need that

    Not necessarily. You could rank well for a product or service that very few people are looking for. So it might be a small drip rather than a destructive and dangerous wave.
