Sam's Club Is Latest to Provide SEO Services for SMBs

Ann All

With a growing number of SMBs selling products and services online, it seems logical that these companies would want to ensure that people can easily find their Web sites. Yet a recent Microsoft survey of SMBs in the UK with Web sites found that just 38 percent of them utilize search engine marketing.


Among their reasons for shunning it: 44 percent said it took too much time, 56 percent believed it was too costly, and 33 percent thought it was too complicated. In short, such services seemed inaccessible to SMBs.


The somewhat surprising entry of Sam's Club could help change that. A search engine optimization (SEO) service will cost $25 a month, writes CNET blogger Elinor Mills. For an additional $25 a month, SMBs can add pay-per-click advertising services. Web site design and e-commerce services are also available. All of the online services are provided by SMB specialist Innuity.

It is interesting to see a major player in the retail business entering the SEO field, especially at this level. I am sure their services will be top quality for the range of focus that is offered. However most businesses need customized support and I'm finding that Web2.0 strategies are becoming formidable competitors. Time will tell but I always welcome the new players. The marketplace tends to thrive when developments like this take place.Alex Rich, PhD Reply
