What’s the biggest complaint small business owners have about their websites? “Not being found on search engines.” According to Alignable’s latest Small Business Insights Poll, nearly half of the over 250 small business owners owners surveyed picked that as their top pain point.
Having spent many years in the early days of local search at AltaVista, the results got me wondering if the 47 percent who picked “not showing up on search engines” meant they were not showing up at all, or if a lack of traffic to their websites was causing them to believe they were not being found.
Are you in the 47 percent bucket? If so, let’s see if we can give you a little peace of mind.
