Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of increasing the quantity and consistency of traffic to your website through organic search engine results.
Let's break down the concept and look at the pieces to understand the true meaning of SEO:
Traffic of high quality. You can have all the tourists you like, but if they're coming to your site because Google says you're an Apple computer resource when you're just a farmer selling apples, that's not quality traffic. Instead, you want to target customers who are truly interested in your products.
The outcomes are natural. Many SERPs are dominated by advertisements. Any traffic that you don't have to pay for is referred to as organic traffic.
A search engine can be thought of as a website where you type (or speak) a question into a box, and Google, Yahoo!, Bing, or whatever search engine you're using magically responds with a long list of links to webpages that could answer your question.
That is right. But have you ever considered what's behind those enchanted lists of hyperlinks?
The following is how it works: Google (or every other search engine you use) has a crawler that goes out and collects data on all the stuff they might find on the Internet. Crawlers return all of those 1s and 0s to the search engine in order to create an index. After that, the index is fed into an algorithm that tries to align all of the data with your query.
