Digital marketing is a form of marketing which uses internet and and digital technologies to promote products and services to users on digital mediums. These mediums are accessed by devices such as laptops, desktops, tablets and mobiles.

Coming back to SEO, SEO is a more holistic way of driving customers to your products or services.

SEO in layman terms

Why is SEO important in digital marketing

Let me give a layman example:

A website (say webbazooka) is basically a house which is situated in some part of the world. While you, being a consumer is present in some other part of the world. Search engine (say google) has a repository of addresses.

Now, when you go to google to find digital marketing services in India, google directs you to all the addresses which provide digital marketing services in India

Since webbazooka has its website SEO optimised, Google tells webbazooka’s address first and then tells other adresses. Therefore, SEO is important in Digital Marketing.

What do you get by increasing your presence on search engines?


Loads and loads of meaningful traffic coming your website’s way, sounds great right? But what do you need to do to accomplish this? You use various search engine optimization techniques for increasing your website’s traffic.

Ways to get traffic on your website

There are two ways by which you display higher on the search result:

One is inorganic where you pay for an ad listing and then you are ranked higher than your competitor. Inorganic SEO compromises of CPC (cost per click) ads, PPC (pay per click) ads, CPA (cost per acquisition), etc.

This method yields results quicker than the organic method. This is focused on bringing in inorganic traffic to your website. Inorganic traffic basically means traffic coming from your affiliate marketing links, your social media sites, paid advertisements, etc.

Although this method sounds really fruitful, it is at the same time, highly risky. Make sure to have a proper marketing budget set before you use this method.

The other is organic where you make your page more relevant and contextual. This leads to the search engine itself displaying you among top results.

You need to focus on your organic SEO much more than you need to focus on your inorganic one.

Why organic SEO is important in Digital Marketing ?

Well, according to recent research, most searchers don’t even bother to click past the first page of the search results of Google. Organic SEO helps to push your website’s ranking on to the first page.

How to acheive this?

In order to achieve this, you need to give your undivided attention to a number of things such as, your content, you keywords research, ensuring that your page is mobile-friendly, optimising your website and making it look aesthetically pleasing to look at, etc.

What are various SEO techniques one can use?

  • Website names and URLs

    URL Structure for SEO

    Your URL and website name plays a tremendous role is determining your website’s rank in Google. Make sure your website name is interesting and defines you or your business. Keep it relevant to your business.

    Coming to the URL part, here’s where it gets a little tricky. You need to keep a ton of things in your mind when it comes to your website’s URL. What are these things you ask? We’ll tell you! First comes the readability, make sure your URL is readable and make sure it describes the page of your website.

    Having readable URLs will also help you score more backlinks, and we all love backlinks, right? Then comes the length of your URL, the shorter your URL, the better is your position in Google!

  • Page content

    If you want the traffic headed to your website to stay, then you need to work on your content as SEO and Page Content go together.

    You need to grab the attention of your readers by putting out information they had never come across before! Working on your content will help you bag more backlinks as well.

    Keywords are the one of the main things you need to pay attention to, having long-tailed keywords. In order to make sure your page’s content is worthy of a reader’s time, invest your efforts into Content Marketing.

  • Meta tags

    Let us first briefly explain what meta tags are. Meta tags provide information about your website. Sounds similar right?

    Except that this information can only be communicated and understood by Google and other search engines. You guessed it! These tags will not be shown on your website. While writing your meta tags, pay focus on the it’s title, description and viewport.

  • Characteristics of Link

    When it comes to the characteristics of your link, make sure it is not a low-authority domain. If you are not using any spam sites, then you’re good to go!

    You may also want to not post links that are irrelevant to your niche. This might raise a few eyebrows.

  • Usability and accessibility

    This basically aims at making your website usable and accessible to all the users of the Internet regardless of their abilities. Your title tags enable users using screen readers to accurately understand what your page is all about.

    Therefore, make sure they are relevant and accurate. Similar to title tags, your alt text needs to be on point as well. Screen readers use alt text of an image to explain what the image is about to their users.

  • Page design

    This point is pretty self-explanatory. The better your page looks, the higher are your chances of ranking higher. When choosing a template for your site, be sure that it complements your business or what you do.

    Make sure that your design is smooth so that it does not cause any interruptions to the readers and it is pleasing to their eyes.
