You will want to make sure your website is not responsive and mobile friendly first.   https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly

Organic Search Results Page - SERP
 
Are all the listing right below the top three Google ads of the SERP - search engine results page of every Google search and goes all the way to the bottom of the page where three or more paid Google ads are.

Organic Search Results are by far the best to have for the following reasons:

  1. Is they are virtually free website traffic - meaning your don't pay when someone clicks on them
  2.  It shows the people searching that your website is all about the subject they are searching for,
  3. It shows that your website content is very good or else one of the other million websites would be showing instead,
  4. It confirms that you have a responsive website  and it shows well on all devices, laptop, smart phone, tablet and smart TVs.
Organic Website Traffic , generally has a much lower bounce rate and users spend much more time on your website, this is good to generate conversions, users also visit more of your website pages.

Paid Search Results or Google AdWords

Paid Search Results are extremely beneficial to your website traffic for the following reasons:

  1. Paid Search Traffic  is affordable and you can track the results, tell which ads and keywords lead to a desirable website action like filling out a contact us form, sign up for a newsletter, make a reservation or calling you on the telephone.
  2. Even if your website is showing on the SERP search engine results page , having an ad running will prevent someone else from being on the SERP.  There are only so many spots on page one of Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  3. With Paid Website Traffic you can customize the message to be more detailed and even include a weekly special or price.
  4. With Paid Website Traffic  your can better fine tune each seasons like Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Summer and winter.
  5. With Paid Google ADs you can have a Google Maps  included in the ads to give potential customer easy access to find you.
  6. With Paid Google Ads  you can have your phone number show to people searching on their iPhone and are able to call you.
There are many more benefits to both Organic Search Traffic  and Paid Search Traffic that we would happy to share with you.
