Why Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Before we start talking about WHY SEO!, let’s first understand what is SEO?

What is SEO ?

Multiple time people don’t understand what is SEO causing them loss of leads on the online market. So let us first start with what SEO exactly means. SEO means Search Engine Optimization. Which is a technique to tell search engines about the content of your website so that when someone searches for some content over the internet, search engines can showcase your content to them.

To make this more clear, let us first see a situation and then understand what SEO exactly does. Suppose you have a website and a visitor visits your website and goes through it. The human brain is smart enough to understand what sort of content is written on the website. The visitor can understand what exactly is on your website, like you are trying to promote a book, a movie, a blog etc., but for a search engine, the content written on your website is just a binary text, and it will not be able to understand what exactly you are promoting. So to make a search engine understand what you are promoting, you will have to tell it in the language it understands or in simple way, you will have to teach search engine to read your website properly. This method of teaching a search engine to read a website is called Search Engine Optimization.

WHY SEO IS SO IMPORTANT ?

Generally, in majority of times, its hard for an end user to find a proper result for his/her quires related to a product or service on the net.
