Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or web page in a search engine’s “natural,” or un-paid (“organic”), search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users.
The most important component to good SEO and getting your site ranked high is good, rich content that’s relevant to the search terms your target audience uses to find your website. Another key part is keyword analysis in order to find the most commonly used keywords people use to find your business. And then optimize your pages for those keywords, followed by analyzing Google Analytics reports and making adjustments where needed to help maximize your conversion rate and ultimately gain customers.
We also use other SEO techniques to increase your website ranking, which include:
