What is search engine optimization (SEO)?
It's not voodo or magic... just know how and hard work.
Search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo!) display sites they believe are relevant, authoritative and useful. They measure a website's relevance by using an algorithm (mathematical equation) to look at a number of ranking factors to determine where your website appears in the results for a given search term (keywords).
SEO is designing and developing a website in such a way that it can be found by search engines according to the words and phrases relevant to what the site is about. There are a lot of companies out there that try to make SEO into some form of voodoo or requires a large expensive team to accomplish. They might even guarantee you a first or second place ranking...
Avoid them... like the plague.
Steps for Successful SEO
So what works? After building a website with an SEO optimized framework, the most important things are really quite simple...
- Write fresh, solid and relevant content using words and phrases used by people searching for your product or message.
- Over time build links to your site from other legitimate and authoritative sites.
- Wait... wait for it... repeat numbers 1 and 2.
