Search Engine Optimization

Starting with SEO

What is SEO:

Search Engine Optimization is the way of increasing both the quality and quantity of website traffic, as well as exposure to your brand, through non-paid(organic) search engine results.

It’s more about understanding what people are searching for online, the words they’re using, and the type of content they wish to consume. Knowing the answers to these questions will allow you to connect to the people who are searching online for the solutions.

If knowing your audience’s intent is considered to be one side of the SEO, delivering it in a way search engine crawlers can find and understand is the other side of the same SEO.

SEO is important because it keeps the search results familiar to the user's search text.

Users trust search engines and achieving a top in search engine rankings results to searchers that your site is a useful source. The higher you rank in results pages, the more clicks and traffic your site will generate.
