What is SEO?
SEO is what every website should aim for. We all want to be on the top of a search engine result. However, there is a lot more to SEO than just being at the top. More importantly, what exact search would you like to be on the top of? For example, would I want my web design business to be on the top of a Google search for local farmers in my area? Probably not! That wouldn’t do me any good. So, it is important to be visible by search engines when it is relevant. It is also important to realize that there are also ads at the very top of search engine results. This is the result of paid advertisements and SEO can help you get to the top without having to pay for those ads.
