The #1 Worst SEO Mistake: Is Not having a Website.

Below, we give you 5 reasons, why having a website is a vital and decisive factor, for your business success.

1. People can learn more about your business

“97% of people learn more about a local company online than anywhere else.

By not having a website, you will find it nearly impossible to capture traffic. Your website can act as your business advocate as it can be made available 24/7, giving your business greater exposure, that could lead to increased sales and revenue.

2. You need to be discoverable in Search Engine Results

“Search engines drive 93% of all website traffic, and nearly half of these searches, are for local business"

By having an SEO optimized website, you will ensure that local consumers are able to find and contact you, as well as learn more about your services, which leads to increased sales.

3. Your competitors most likely already have one.

It's impossible to give an exact timeframe for how long it will take your website, to appear on Google, or any other search engine. The process could take few days, weeks, or much longer. Once your website appears on search engines, it will take much longer for ALL your webpages to be fully visible in search engines. By not having a website, you are giving your competitors the advantage of time, which gives them higher search ranks while making it harder for you to get at the top search results. The good news is you can always rank higher, if your delivers better content and usability.

4. Google Ranks Local Business Higher when Searchers use Mobile Devices

By having a mobile optimized website, you will be able to take advantage of Googles mobile searches ranking system. This will increase your likely hood of being discovered by local consumers which means they will more likely contact or visit your business.

5. Credibility

“84% of today’s consumers think a website makes your business more credible than companies who only have social media profiles.”

Having a website instantly increases your credibility as legitimate business. Additionally, by having a custom email for your domain, it boosts your business professionalism to all your correspondence.


By having a website, that works across all mobile devices and internet browsers, your business will gain greater credibility and exposure to local consumers in your market. Google alone, handles over 75,000 search queries per second, and is used by nine out of ten internet mobile users worldwide. By not having a website, you gave your competitors the advantage to search engine rankings, that is gained through quality, performance, usability of your website, and most importantly, time.
