March 11, 2021

Have you ever wondered what search engine people are using to find your website? I recently looked into the 2020 trends for which search engine is being used the most to find other websites.  Search engines algorithms are slightly different so understanding the trends is important to note for your company’s search engine optimization (SEO) strategy.

2020 shows that Google is still by far the most used search engine.*  This shows if your company is looking to drive sales through your website, make sure your Google Business profile is current.

Send me a note if you are looking for more tips to get your company’s website ranked higher on Google. You can also learn more about our SEO services.
