What is Search Engine Optimization?
SEO is the art of optimizing your web site to be visible and ultimately ranked on search engines by means of an organic method, or natural selection.
Meaning, we do all that html coding and geeky stuff to your site and submit it to search engines saying; “Hey Google, here is our web site, it has great content, great keywords …can you place us on your search engine?” Then search engines like Google will evaluate your web site and compare it to all of your competitors who are also trying to get rankings for the same keywords as you are, they then evaluate a list of things and rank your site accordingly.
Optimizing your website and wondering what Google is Looking for?:
- Have a high Competition rate? ….Who has the most pages?
- More importantly, who has the most pages with the most relevant keyword rich content?
- They also look for things like proper Meta Title Tags, h1 and bold tags, inbound links and much much more. (check out that link over there to the right for more seo tips)
