SEOptimization Tips - 1 : Introduction

Last Update: November 13, 2020

What Exactly Is SEO?

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” In simple terms, it means the process of improving your site to increase its visibility for relevant searches. The better visibility your pages have in search results, the more likely you are to get attention and attract prospective and existing customers to your business.

SEO Strategy

An SEO strategy is the process of planning, outlining and implementing steps designed to improve search engine rankings. In other words: an SEO strategy is the process that you follow when you want to get more organic traffic.

In Other Words ...

Aligning content to Search queries.

    Aparna, I love these SEO facts. My #1 favorite is:
    1. The average content length of the top position Google article contains 2,416 words.

    I will always keep this 2400 word count in mind when writing my articles.

    The average reader can read approximately 300 wpm. So a 2400 word article would only take an average reader about 8 minutes to read.

    Thank you!

    Hi Aparne. I already knew some of those, but I learned more again from this SEO guide...
    I'm just wondering tho, Is backlinks that important? I don't think you can't rank on page one just because you don't have a backlink on your site. This wouldn't make any sense... And most people pay for backlinks now, and google doesn't like that
