What is SEO?
SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization.” Similar to how a car is optimized for best performance by putting in oil or aligning the wheels, your website needs to be optimized with relevant, valuable content and keywords that draw in potential customers.
Our Chicago SEO services help your business identify areas of your website that need optimizing to achieve high rankings in search engine results. This in turn drives high-quality visitors (those most likely to become customers) to your website.
It is important to remember that ranking #1 on Google for any keyword may be counterproductive. We uncover the keywords that people use who are most likely to become your customers.
M16’s SEO experts conduct in-depth research to discover real opportunities for growth. We then attempt to rank for the most lucrative and relevant keywords. When you partner with M16, you receive a customized SEO strategy for your specific situation.

Why SEO is Important to Digital Marketing
SEO is an excellent digital marketing tactic to drive valuable organic traffic to a website.
Based on a search traffic study of 920 million web pages in Ahrefs Content Explorer, 90.88% of all pages get no search traffic from Google. That’s right. ZERO traffic!
How can you avoid being part of the vast majority of web pages with no traffic? The answer is simple. Make sure you choose the right SEO company to work with.
Every SEO client is unique. However, we’ve developed a proven system that makes SEO work. M16’s SEO consultants agree with leading SEO experts.
