SEO: getting visitors from the Search Engines
Search Engine Optimization or SEO
is the discipline of online marketing that modifies the content of a site so it will rank higher for specific keyword searches.
The most effective and consistent way of driving visitors to your site is by submitting it to the search engines. Just a few major search engines like Yahoo! and specially Google, are believed to be responsible for 95% of all traffic to websites, but making your site to come up in the first places for specific keyword combinations on those engines requires both having a sizable and relevant content and technical expertise in arranging that copy in a way that balances three goals:
- Being attractive to the search engines so your site ranks high, taking into account content and technical issues
- Containing useful information your visitor is looking for.
- Copy that sell your products or services.
Find your niche: Is far easier to have a good position in the search if your focus your attention in a reduced set of keywords for a specific target audience than if you are vague and unspecific.
