Increase Results

While the overarching purpose of SEO is to achieve and maintain high search engine rankings, what’s the real overarching purpose of your website? In most cases, if your website is for business, then it’s real purpose is to increase business. You want as many visitors to your site as possible and that is why getting to the top of the search engine results is so important. However, in reality that is not the true purpose of SEO. The real purpose is to get more leads and to convert those leads into sales or new customers.

Next up you have to evaluate your results and make changes when and where changes are needed.
