Natural search has a natural attraction because of its lower cost for smaller web retailers such as SophiasStyle.com, on online children’s apparel retailer. The company gets about 70% of its traffic from natural search, says Belinda North, president. “Natural search helps us level the playing field against the big companies like Gap and Gymboree.
