This principle can be applied to internet marketing and a business’s Google ranking. Every company wants to be the first name on any relevant search, but realistic goals must first be set.

Arguably, some of the world’s largest companies don’t have the same name recognition as others. However, they’re still making a strong financial impact.

Similarly, Google’s top rankings are a competitive, coveted prize, but rankings 2-10 aren’t bad, either.

Taking the first fundamental steps are key to building a strong foundation that reaches the top of any digital pyramid.

While ads and promotions will help put a business’s name at the top immediately, getting on the first page organically is a lot more beneficial in the long term and reaps many rewards.
