All web pages that live on the Internet - absolutely all of them - compete for the best positioning in search engines. This ensures that more users reach your website, which translates into more exposure for your company, your brand, and your products. If you want to increase sales, this positioning will help you a lot to achieve that goal that you have.


In the last 10 years, Internet access for Panamanians has grown exponentially. According to figures from the World Bank, in 2010 only 40% of the population used the Internet for their daily tasks. This changed radically in 2019, when this figure reached 65%, representing more than half of the country's inhabitants, a number that surely grew even more between 2020 and 2021, also due to the pandemic.



This type of indicator reflects the importance of a company being present on the Internet. In addition to being able to sell your products and services online, a website makes a company known: it strengthens the relationship with users and enhances its reputation. It also serves as a reference for those who are researching the brand or product itself.
