B2C – or Business to Consumer – depends more on strong keyword usage, personable language on your pages, and skilled metadata to improve your search rankings so that more customers can see your business. B2B – Business to Business – relies less on this information, as most businesses will search for very specific products or services. They may even simply contact you directly, without relying on search data.

For example, if you have a storefront but a customer is not able to find your address or phone number, their user experience is negative – they can’t find your basic contact information. Assess your website on a number of platforms, both traditional and modern. Ensure your site functions properly on both Apple iOS and Android phones. Go through your pages in a variety of browsers to search for errors. If you’re trying to reach a wide audience, the best way to do so is to make sure your site User Experience is rich. There are a plenty of great tools available to make sure the User Experience is great and the goal of the website is fulfilled.
Is your Content good enough to convert your Visitors?
The next most important part of your site is if the content on your website good enough to convert your visitors to leads. The Content should showcase your expertise of the product or service you offer. The Content like Pictures, Banners, Blogs, Videos, etc., all should re-iterate your expertise. The Content should emphasize that you are the dominant players in that product/service you offer. This great content will also help search engines find you easily. So great content not only does make a better website but also ranks your website better.
SEO and analytic rankings
SEO – Search Engine Optimization – rankings are based on a wide array of features, and the importance of these features over time. Some of the most standard search ranking features that can boost your SEO are high-quality links, trustworthiness, and strong and applicable keyword usage. Website analytics collect data about web users and usage and can be an effective tool to monitor traffic to your website. This will tell you how useful your website is to your customers, how much new and repeat traffic is happening, and which pages of your site are being visited most often. It’s an excellent tool for helping you refine and streamline your site to reach the most people and give them exactly what they’re looking for.
