Firstly, What Does SEO mean?
For those of you who don’t know what SEO is, it is a Search Engine Optimization.
So now what for the next question. What is a Search Engine Optimization?
search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website or a web page in a web search engine’s (Google) unpaid results- often referred to as “natural”, “organic”, or “earned” results. In general, the earlier ( or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a website appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users; these visitors can then be converted into customers. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, video search, academic search, news search and industry- specific vertical search engines. SEO differs from local search engine optimization in that the latter is focused on optimizating a business’s online presence so that its web pages will be displayed by search engines when a user enters a local search for its products or services. The former instead is more focused on national or international searches.
