Web Hosting Provider GoDaddy Launches SEO Tool for SMB

GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY), one of the world’s largest web hosting providers dedicated to small businesses, has launched its Search Engine Visibility solution, an SEO tool that helps small business customers get found on major search sites through search engine optimization.

About 63 percent of small businesses believe SEO is the most important tool to easily find their business using major search engines, according to a recent survey commissioned by GoDaddy, yet historically most small businesses don’t have the time or technical knowledge to ensure their businesses are found online.

To address this growing need, GoDaddy has launched its Search Engine Visibility solution. This SEO tool features a wizard that recommends search engine optimized keywords and content based on the business type. Instead of using industry jargon, Search Engine Visibility would use simple language that helps customers understand how to get the most out of SEO.

Full Service SEO

GoDaddy’s web hosting customers have to complete the wizard that leads them through the interface step by step to do tasks in a prescribed order. Customers make the suggested updates directly to their websites. Once they click “publish,” GoDaddy layers these SEO changes over a customer’s website. Then, when someone visits the website, they’ll see the new and improved SEO friendly content.

Not only does it give customers targeted recommendations for which search phrases are most likely to drive traffic to their site, but it also makes it incredibly easy to make content changes and then to have these changes applied to a website, without requiring the customer to touch a line of code.”

For customers interested in hiring a professional to work closely on their website’s SEO, GoDaddy also offers a full service solution, SEO Services. Besides building “a great” SEO foundation, GoDaddy will work with these clients and use more advanced SEO tactics to help them rank higher in the most popular search engines.
