Denys Dubner: some commodity trade businesses are so massive in $$$ and so little in terms of number of players in the global market that everyone knows each other and SEO makes no sense.
Jason Bean: Denys Dubner I could see that it wouldn`t be a business critical endeavor, but if there ever was someone not currently in the group of "everyone knows each other" and were doing research about them, being able to find them easily online would still be a benefit. Even generically, perhaps someone just doing research on "commodity trade businesses" and getting found for those search terms and phrases would still be a benefit. The "VALUE" might be significantly smaller for some businesses, but there would still be value and it could still help their business overall.
Denys Dubner: I come from commodity trade business myself. There is no value. Business is made in one phone call to someone you and your banker trusts. That’s it.
Dave Elliott: Probably best not ask that question in an SEO community if you want an answer other than "SEO is awesome" tbh.
I`ve been told other marketing channels are available but I`m pretty sure they all smell and give you cooties.
