Everybody wants his/her WordPress site to be on Google’s first page. Not only the first page but also the pole position as you have invested your hard earned money and efforts on it. In the web world, if your website is not indexed on any search engine, then your website won’t reach 99% viewers. So it is very hard to get organic traffic on your website.
