Organic search refers to, for want of a better word, a free search. If the front end of your website is coded properly, your potential customer should be able to type a few relevant keywords in a search engine, and voila, there you are. It is the first base that has to be covered before you turn to paid promotion, which by all means is acceptable depending how competitive your type of business is and is a useful way to hit the ground running, but if you can rate well for free, well. Optimising your site for organic searches is trial and error initially, but you would be surprised how little things make a huge difference.
