what is search engine optimisation
Just having a website isn't enough. Over 80% of people use search
engines, such as Google, to find information,
products and services on the web. And, people usually look at
the first 2 - 3 pages (20 - 30 results) only.
So, if you raise the profile of your website (that is your ranking
or listing) on search engines and directories, you'll get more
visitors and new customers.
This listing, or ranking on the search engines and directories
is one of the most important things you do to assist people to
reach your site. It is called search engine optimisation, which means doing everything possible to
improve your ranking - without trying to “fool” the
Basically, search engine optimisation is all about words! If you have very little useful text or copy on your website, your website’s results will be hindered.
When someone does a search on a search engine, they’re shown a variety of ads, maps and website listings. On Google there are about ten website listings on the first page, called “organic or natural search”, where free listings which are the best match for a search query, are ranked by Google’s algorithm.
The goal of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is to optimise a website to be the most relevant search result for the topic area targeted and to increase the flow of targeted traffic to your website.
Each major search engine uses a different algorithm to look at your website. However they do all look at components of your site such as meta or document/page title, meta tags, keywords in the URL, the text, number of headings in the text, number of pages, external quality links to the site, size of yourimages, text alternatives to images and many other things.
