This is definitely a topic that always plaques users and gurus in my opinion… I truly believe that the answer to this question is 3 fold or more… In 2017 going into 2018 with a large amount of mobile web users we have to consider things that didn’t matter years ago in website design and development.
- Is your Website/Code Clean and User Friendly/Attractive?
- Has your Website Design been optimized to be a Responsive Website Design?
- Do you have an Organic SEO Team or Strategy in place?
My top 3 don’t even include SEO Content Writing which I believe as an SEO is KING; as well as integrated social media that is proper for your niche site. It is also very important you work with a Website Design Firm that specializes in SEO Coding for speed or you may find yourself having to have your website code redone to adhere to Google Standards.
