Learn How to Apply SEO Tactics to Your Website Today
This site was born from the needs of many people I have met as well as friends who have inquired about “SEO”, wanting to know what it is, what it can do for their website and whether or not they are able to apply it to their very own websites – successfully.
The goal of this website is to answer the many questions I get about Search Engine Optimization, in as simple and easy format as possible without getting too technical. So, in essence it is for newbies just getting their feet wet in SEO and hopefully also for the intermediates who might need to review and go back to the basics. It is very easy to lose sight of things and get very deep with this subject when sometimes just simple applications can go a long way.
Though it is true that SEO has been changing rapidly, especially in light of Google’s newest rollout of their latest search update, it still is not eliminating a lot of the basic elements of a good website which the implementation of good SEO produces.
What is Search Engine Optimization? In short, it is the ability to be able to optimize your website in a way that allows it to come up at the top (or at least in the first three pages) of the search results in the major search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. There are a lot of other technical definitions, but they all amount to the same thing – visibility on the search engines.
Why is it important to be listed in the first three pages – at least – Because it is a known fact that people who do searches rarely go beyond the 3rd or 4th pages of the search results. So, if you are listed on the 50th page of the search results, for example, it is hardly likely many people, if at all, would scroll through 50 pages of results to find what they are looking for.
