Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
What is SEO & why do I need it?
SEO is the practice of making your website more visible to search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo!. SEO is important because it helps connect your website to people who are interested in the good things that you are doing. Those people might be across town, but they might be accross the country or even on the other side of the world.
Common misunderstanding about SEO.
SEO is not an exact science and there isn't a magic formula to apply and then you'll be on the first page of search results. However, there are good practices to follow to help your site be more visible to search engines.
Can you guarantee SEO results?
As we already mentioned, SEO is not an exact science. Google, Bing, Yahoo! and the other search engines are continually updating and modifying their algorithms to provide the best search results possible.
