What is SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimization. This is the process of getting traffic to your website from the "free" and "organic" search results on search engines. All major search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo have primary search results, where web pages and other content such as videos are shown and ranked.

These rankings are based on what the search engine considers most relevant to users, which is why keywords are essential to a website. Using the right keywords can help pin point the customers you are reaching out to and help your site rank above your competitors.
