Search Engine Optimization – Definition

Posted on August 11th, 2007 in Drive Traffic To Your Blog,Search Engine Optimization by Stephanie

It has been exactly 1 month since I started this blog and search engine optimization is something that I have had to consider at the same time.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term search engine optimization, here is a simple definition:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)  is the process of improving the amount of traffic to a website from search engines. 

75% of searchers do not go past the first page of a Google search, therefore the higher the website ranks in the search results, the more searchers will visit the site.  This means that I will have to use search engine optimization techniques in order to rank highly for keywords related to my blog and so people will be able to find my blog and therefore increase traffic to it.

Over the coming weeks, months and years even (it is a big topic!) I will be posting tips and techniques for search engine optimization so keep posted! :-)
