Why Organic Copywriting is Critical to Search Engine Success
Hoteliers cannot afford to neglect SEO. A study from Compete.com shows that 53% of organic clicks go to the first listing. The second listing gets fifteen percent of traffic, and third gets nine percent. With such a steep decline from first to second position, third position and beyond, it is critical to achieve organic success.
Contrary to what some marketers are proclaiming, that “SEO is dead,” more than half of website booking revenue across the HeBS Digital client portfolio (56%) comes as a direct referral from the search engines (SEO and SEM contributed 32.7% and 22.9% of total website revenue, respectively).
