Technically speaking, SEO is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic driven to your website from search engines by organic or algorithmic search results.
In layman’s terms, the earliest your site comes in a search results list – ie the higher its page rank – the more visitors it will receive. If you’ve ever wondered why a competitor’s site ranks higher than yours, the chances are SEO is at work.
Search Engine Optimisation can be applied to different kinds of searches such as image search, geographical search and industry-specific vertical search engines.
