Default The Basics in SEO

SEO, Search Engine Optimization, is the process of taking a website and making it look good on the search engine results. A better example: Take ACNE products. For those who really want an ACNE product, it simple goes down to price, reviews, ratings, and appeal. People want a product that will resolve their problem fast. Seeing a bottle of ACNE cleanser with a boring label at $15 is not going to be enticing. Seeing an ACNE cleanser whose label is bright and whose design is appealing to the eye at the exact same price. Who do you think the person is going to purchase?

Webmasters have one goal: to provide users with a good source of information to rely upon. If their website looks good, users will rely on it and tell other users to use the website. Webmasters work very hard to make their website SEO-friendly. The more SEO-friendly their website is, the better their website will be in competing against other similar websites. SEO Optimization is the process of making sure your website stands out in the search engines so when a user is finding a solution to their problem, your website will come up first in the results.

So how does a site become SEO Optimized?

It involves editing the files and editing your website's content. For instance, if you have a website that is about teaching people how to play volleyball. You want to have the necessary keywords to be seen in your website's meta tag and the website itself. Your website's title should be similar to "How to Play Volleyball: A Guide to Being Successful in Volleyball". Your keywords should involve "volleyball, playing volleyball, volleyball sport". Put yourself into the position of a person who is looking for a good website to go to for being successful at volleyball. As that person, what would you look for in a website? What keywords would you type into your search engine browser to get the website you want? Your website should contain the content that people are looking for. If your website contains good keywords and a good title in its meta tag, that's the first step in putting your website into the top results in the search engine.
