SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization.Basically, it’s things you can do to make your website get noticed by the search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Search engines on the internet use complex algorithms that send out “electronic spiders” to each and every website that is online. These web-crawlers check different things called indicators which determine the usefulness of the content on the website for the people who are searching for that content.

The purpose of SEO is to make sure the spiders find what they are looking for so that your website can rank higher than other websites in your same niche. The higher you rank on search engine results, the more likely that a user is going to click on the link and visit you.

1. Use Keywords.

Keywords are the words and phrases that somebody will type into a search engine like Google to find something online. Use terms that people use to search for topics that are related to your business in your headlines, text, and categories.

2. Fix Navigation Problems.

Make sure a search engine can find each page listed in your menu on your site. If it can’t, then most likely your users won’t be able to find it either.

3. Post Fresh And Relevant Content.

Content that engages users and encourages them to share it ranks high. Generally, this is high value content written by you or only for you. Duplicate content will lower search engine rankings. The SEO for your website will improve if you post content on a regular basis.

4. External and Internal Links.

Search engines like websites that have links to other pages on the website, along with links coming in from other websites. These are known as backlinks.

5. Positive User Experience.

If your website provides a positive user experience, the search engines will detect this and send more traffic your way. These factors include how long people stay on your website, the less time it takes for a website to load and if your website can be easily viewed on mobile devices.

Without SEO for your website, you’re just hoping that Google and the other search engines will somehow stumble across your website, figure out what you’re writing about, and then hopefully send relevant and targeted traffic to your website.
