Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search Engine Optimization, abbreviated SEO, is a process which results in a website’s organic search engine rankings being improved when a specific keyword or keyword phrase is entered into a search engine. These optimization results are achieved by modifying various on-site and off-site factors which are used by the search engine’s algorithms to determine a website’s authority with regard to the given search term.

Organic search engine rankings, or organic search results, are the non-paid search results which appear on a search engine results page (SERP) after a search is performed.
