Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the most cost-effective way to keep your website front-and-center among the top search engines. Over ninety percent of today’s consumers use search engines to locate business websites, and seventy-five percent of those users never scroll past the first page of results. For the success of your internet business, it is essential that customers can easily locate and access your website in the highest rankings of today’s most widely-used search engines.
SEO is the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “natural” listings on search engines. In general, the higher ranked on the search results page, and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users.
As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, structure and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another important part of successful SEO.
