SEO Tips And Helpful Hints (Video)

Search engine optimization is what is powering today’s search engines.  As many companies may think they have to pay for ads to be found on the internet, they are wrong.

“Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search,[1] news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.” – Wikipedia
