What is SEO?
SEO is an acronym for “Search Engine Optimization”. It is a long-term marketing strategy employed in order to improve a websites visibility and organic search results in google and other global search engines. SEO is the process of optimizing a website for the purpose of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to that site from search engines.
How does SEO work?
The idea for PageRank — Google’s early ranking algorithm — stemmed from Einstein. Larry Page and Sergei Brin were students at Stanford, and they noticed how often scientific studies referred to famous papers, such as the theory of relativity. These references acted almost like a vote — the more your work was referenced the more important it must be. If they downloaded every scientific paper and looked at the references, they could theoretically decide which papers were the most important, and rank them.
They realized that because of links, the Internet could be analyzed and ranked in a similar way, except instead of using references they could use links. So they set about attempting to “download” (or crawl) the entire Internet, figuring out which sites were linked to the most. The sites with the most links were, theoretically, the best sites. And if you did a search for “university,” they could look at the pages that talked about “university” and rank them.
What are the benefits of SEO?
There are many benefits to SEO, the most important of which is that it helps your website rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs). When someone searches for a term related to your business, you want your website to be one of the first results they see. SEO can help make that happen.
What is the goal of SEO?
The goal of SEO is to improve a website’s visibility and organic search results in order to increase traffic. The main aim of SEO is to fill any of a website’s deficiencies so that the site appears as high as possible in search engine results pages (SERPs).
What are some common misconceptions about SEO?
There are many misconceptions about SEO. Some people think that it is a “black art” that can only be performed by experts. Others believe that you can simply “stuff” keywords into your content and achieve high rankings.
The truth is that SEO is not difficult, but it does require some time and effort. And, most importantly, it must be done in a way that is consistent with Google’s guidelines. If you are not familiar with these guidelines, or if you are trying to manipulate the search engine results pages (SERPS), then you will likely get penalized.
