Search Engine Optimization

Even companies that do big business online struggle to be noticed by Google and other search engines. After all, the web is home to some 120 million Internet domains and tens of billions of indexed pages. But every company, big or small, can draw more traffic by using search-engine optimization — SEO, for short.

Traffic is directly related to your site’s rank among Google’s search results — the higher the rank, the more you get. The specific algorithms, or formulas, that Google and other search engines use to rank websites are closely guarded secrets, but the basic components are widely known. SEO involves considering these components in the development of your site. This section of Webtiller Designs will attempt to compile some of those components into understandable suggestions.
