Organic Search Results
Organic results are the websites that appear right below the “maps” or Google local listings. These results are acquired through careful Search Engine optimization. A full SEO campaign can be expensive, especially for a small business. However, these results can be achieved by having an awesome, responsive website and writing quality content on your website using specific keywords.
