Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a branch of web marketing which focuses on on-line visibility. The goal of SEO is to maximize the presence in Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs), improving the ranking and web authority of the website of interest.
In just one sentence, SEO is: “the process of getting traffic from organic search results on search engines”.
SEO combines keyword marketing with other inbound marketing techniques: companies no longer expect to reach customers, but they want customers to reach them.
Search engines run on complex software systems called algorithms. Algorithms get updated all the time to guarantee always the most reliable and relevant results to users. For this reason, a search engine optimizer’s job is to stay up-to-date with the latest development and keep the pace with the constant progression.
On-Site & Off-Site SEO
SEO is done both on-site and off-site. On-site optimization happens inside the website, while off-site optimization involves activities on third sites, linked to the one of interest.
