What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” (“Search Engine Optimization” or “algorithmic”) search results. Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results, or the higher it “ranks”, the more searchers will visit that site. SEO can also target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines.

Since Google is the most popular search engine, many webmasters have become eager to influence their website’s Google rankings. An industry of consultants has arisen to help websites raise their rankings on Google and on other search engines. This field, called search engine optimization, attempts to discern patterns in search engine listings, and then develop a methodology for improving rankings.

Algorithms/ Google Guidelines (change in Google search results on how it tags your website) — In mathematics, computing, linguistics, and related disciplines, an algorithm is a definite list of well-defined instructions for completing a task; that given an initial state, will proceed through a well-defined series of successive states, eventually terminating in an end-state. The transition from one state to the next is not necessarily deterministic; some algorithms, known as probabilistic algorithms, incorporate randomness.

Organic Search Results — Google indexes and caches HTML and 13 other file types, which include PDF, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Flash SWF, plain text files, among others to return search results. Users customize the search engine somewhat. They can set a default language, use “SafeSearch” filtering technology (which is on ‘moderate’ setting by default), and set the number of results shown on each page.

Web Traffic — SEO increases web visitor counts by ranking very high in the results of searches using the most appropriate keywords describing the content of your site — along with a myriad of optimizing techniques and strategies. Driving web traffic is not just technical, nor copywriting, nor links, nor just search engine submission, but an intricate blend of over a hundred variables into the fabric of a website.

Page Rank — Page Rank is a link analysis algorithm that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of “measuring” its relative importance within the set. The algorithm may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references.
