Why This Guide Is Important For Your Building Product Business?

In 2022, it’s reported that organic search drives 53% of all website traffic. In order to be at the top of the list, it’s vital that your website maintains its search ranking, staking a claim towards the top of page 1.

In order to do this, you need to consider SEO and make sure your website is built in a way that Google can rank, combining content and technical considerations.

The reason you want to increase your ranking is because the higher you are on Google, the more likely your website will be visited. Search Engine Journal reports that the first organic result in Google Search receives over 25% of clicks.

After position one, the study finds that the click-through rate drops to 15% for position two and 11% for position three.

With that in mind, you need to find ways to increase your website’s overall position so you can maximise the visits to your website.


Why This Guide Can Help Increase Your Google Rankings

It all comes down to backlinking and domain authority.

Domain authority is a ranking given to your website by search engines that determines how likely a web page is to rank. The higher the number, the more likely a website will be towards the top of the SERPs.

In order to get your domain authority higher, you need to receive backlinks, links from other websites to your content.

This is where the guide comes in and why digital PR is such an important part of your digital marketing approach.

If you’re able to make use of backlinks from this list of the UK’s best architectural magazines, you’ll be able to increase your own and navigate further up the Google Rankings.
