What is SEO and how is it used
So what is SEO and why is it important to us that have blogs, websites, web pages, you tube videos and so on.
Well, first of all SEO is short for Search Engine optimization. You use search engines to look up things you want to research or find or buy online, A search engine is like or is a data base program or software that stores and find matches to you request. Examples of that is google, yahoo, Msn, Ask, just to name a few.
Optimization is to make something more effective and be functional and effective with in a given set of rules or conditions,and or constraints.
It is a system that makes searches better and more functional for you.
There are Metasearch engines too these search though many engines at one time and are not dependent on just one engine to get results. They have been around for ever also Examples of these are Planetsearch, Dogpile to name two. Dogpile search thought the big four engines while planet search though I think 16 engines.
So why is this important to you. will if you are looking for something online the search engines makes it possible to find what you are looking for. The program or software goes though all or the most relevent information found online from pages, blogs websites, to give you what you are looking for by using your key words or key phases you use. it links or spiders to information found in these places and sends you to that spot. and if you are a blogger or an online store or page or website you want these searches to find you. So you use some of the same key words and key phrase in the body of your content and in your headings to tell the search engines find your information and send the people to you.
Also an important factor is to have traffic that come to your site and blog it states to the engine that a lot of people find your information good/ great or relevent to what they seek and the search engines will constantly come to your site and give your site a high-ranking ( top of the list) for your content is good, you have many link backs to other people and other sites. Links are important because if you have many the search engines gives your site the mark of an authority site or pages. Links are like yes or likes or votes saying you have a useful and beneficial content.
