What is Search Engine Optimization, or SEO
Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is the process of increasing both your visibility and rank on Search Engine Results Pages (called SERPs), such as Google or Yahoo, by using various types of content. SEO is also referred to as “natural” or “un-paid” search results. But, “un-paid” does not mean free. Un-paid means that you are not using a Pay Per Click campaign. However, SEO requires “Content” and recently the insiders have started referring to SEO as Content Marketing.
The easiest way to explain SEO is to think of it this way: Does the content on your website reflect what a customer would enter in the search bar if they didn’t know you? Google is a computer. It’s an algorithm. A very complex and important algorithm, but a computer and algorithm none the less. Google also wants customers to have a good experience when they search for things using Google, so Google takes the person’s search phrase such as “Best Pancakes in Fresno” and pings it against all of the websites out there and brings back a list of what Google thinks is the best list of places that sell pancakes. The biggest mistake businesses make is that their website has too many generic phrases, it does not reflect a customer’s search behavior and it does not include key industry words.
