Manhattan Web Development Firm Says That SEO Is Crucial for E-Commerce Success
Leading New York website development firm says that a recent survey found that 95 percent of all businesses see SEO as crucial to e-commerce success.
According to Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a leading New York website design and development firm with clients from around the world, a recent survey found that 95 percent of businesses believe that search engine optimization (SEO) is a crucial aspect of ecommerce success. Without SEO, businesses would struggle, he says, to draw both impulse online shoppers and those who use search engines to find the best prices for planned online purchases.
3.1 percent of those polled were unsure of SEO's importance, while only one respondent said that SEO was not important to the success of ecommerce, says Crisafi. Despite the 95 percent that claim it is imperative that companies employ SEO, it was found that less than 83 percent actually employ SEO practices for their business.
One explanation, says Crisafi, is that many of those business owners surveyed may not fully understand SEO enough to leverage its use.
According to the survey, more than 54 percent of respondents reported that they somewhat understand how search engine optimization works, compared to the 40.6 percent that say that they completely understand how it works.
Another similar report, grading the top 500 e-commerce companies based in the United States, handed out an average grade of D when it came to SEO, Crisafi said.
While most seem to recognize its importance, Crisafi said, this survey shows that many businesses have not implemented it as well as they could to enjoy optimum benefits.
