Today Google turns 21 years old. It’s hard to imagine a time when we didn’t look to the search engine for a query or question let alone relying on it for lead generation and business.
Google has changed the rules for marketing in the 21st century.
Today innovators can disrupt markets by understanding how Google indexes content to put their brand at the top of serps and get found by anyone and everyone looking for the solutions they provide.
Building Product Businesses On Google
Unfortunately, many brands in the UK building product and construction space have lagged behind in changing the way they approach the market.
This leaves them exposed to losing market share to competitors who understand how to win the Google arm race that is SEO.
Search Engine Optimisation is a key part of ensuring your website is found by Google. Google functions through the use of algorithms.
SEO is a key part of digital marketing to help your business drive inbound leads from your website.
Google Controls Over 90% Of Online Search
How Building Product Businesses Succeed On Google
Businesses that get the most out of Google will be receiving organic enquiries with little if not any outbound tactics.
There are a number of ways you can signal to Google that you’re an expert within your space:
- Consistently create keyword optimised content such as blogs
- Optimise all images by naming with keywords and adding alt tags
- Be listed on building directories & magazines to improve domain authority
- Ensure all product pages are optimised for search and for the reader
- Ensure your website is secure with an SSL certificate
- The layout and design of your website is clear and easy to use
- People are staying on the website
After 21 years of continuously updating and changing the way it works to benefit the user, Google is the search engine leader.
By following suit your company can become a thought leader in your space by ensuring your website and content is focused on the customer rather than your company.
Search engines will continue to be the first place contractors, installers, architects and specifiers go to for product or service information. As we've adapted with technology, we carry the habits from our personal life of 'Googling' any query we have to the workplace.
This means your website needs to be optimised for search terms and queries. If not, you'll find the competition storming ahead and winning your projects.
