Does a small business need SEO?

After years of experience, here is a little insight into SEO and a small business. Most small businesses have no SEO on their websites, but the few that do are typically ranking at the top of search engine results for their keywords and as a result they are getting most of the clicks, phone calls, emails and business. A general rule of thumb in the webdesign and SEO business is that if you only have a “good” website but rank at the top of search engine results for your keywords, then your website will still get most of the clicks.
