What IS Search Engine Optimzation aka SEO?
Such a commonly used term, yet such a misunderstood one. Search engine optimization, simply put, means telling the search engine, within the code of the website what category the site belongs in (i.e., landscape design los angeles, feng shui consultant los angeles, relationship coach los angeles, etc.).
Search engine programs called 'spiders' crawl the web and 'pick up' web pages. Once the web pages are 'picked up', the search engines analyze them and decide their category and placement.
Just because a website has been search engine optimized does not mean it will be listed at the top of Google, Yahoo or Bing. Search engine optimization insures that a website will be listed in the desired category, but not necessarily at the top of the desired category.
What is the difference between search engine optimization and search engine top ranking?
Search engine optimization is telling the search engine what category your site belongs in. Search engine top ranking is having all the major pieces required for the search engine to list the site in the correct category and place the listing at the top of the category because it considers the site a “VIP” in that category. Top ranking sites are those that are informative, intelligent, and clear in their topic.
