For starters, if you are working on your SEO, then aim to impress Google. There are only 4.4 billion Internet users, and 4 billion of them use Google.

In fact, since 2017, “Where to Buy” searches have gone up by 200%, which is no small number when you consider there were already millions upon millions of searches per day in 2017. If you are looking to push a service or product, focus your SEO on what people will see when they search for places to buy your product.
