Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
What is SEO?
Simply put, Search Engine Optimization or 'SEO' as it's called is optimizing how search engines find your web site. It allows your web site content to rank as high as possible in search results for a certain set of search terms. For example, when people search 'Toronto Car Insurance' or 'Mississauga Camera Store' a list of websites show up in an order determined by the search website (Google/Bing/Yahoo/etc.) and this ranking is based on a number of factors.
What factors affect website search rank?
The single most important factor is the actual website content and the amount of traffic (and the type of traffic) it gets, followed by how 'search engine friendly' the site happens to be. This can be a combination of page titles, descriptions, links to and from the website, how relevant the content is and how often it is updated. It also means a site with hardly any content and very little traffic cannot just 'optimize' its way on to the first page of google, there needs to be something worthwhile to optmize.
