Benefits of SEO

SEO can be confusing. Why is it valuable and worth more than social media?

There are thousands of potential customers that search Google for popular restaurant types every month.

When people are searching Google for terms like “best pizza in Chicago”, they are hungry and ready to buy. When people are on Facebook, they are there to socialize – not to order food. As a result, customers are much easier to convince from Google.

When you rank at the top, you get free exposure to the thousands of people read to buy every month that are searching for restaurants and your cuisine type. You don’t have to pay for every click.

According to a 2022 study, more people search Google for restaurants than DoorDash, UberEats, and GrubHub combined.
43% of all Google searches are looking for local results.
69% of consumers use Google to find business information before going to restaurants.
