SEO stands for search engine optimization, and it refers to practises that help your website become more visible in the natural search results for the people who are looking for your brand, product, or service via search-engines like Google, Bing, or Yahoo.
FAQ - GENERAL SEO
SEO is not something you pay someone to take care of technically behind the scenes without your involvement as a business owner or marketer. SEO is a process that needs to be integrated into all your marketing, writing, publishing, and customer targeting activities.
Because it can send you qualified leads who are ready to buy your products or services, often the same day they search. Many business owners we network with tell us they’ve historically gotten their leads through their network and referrals. Those are kinds of customer leads. Inbound online searches is another kind of lead: one that brings business to you that had never heard of you before.

For someone like an executive business coach who needs to reach 10-20 CEOs in the region, LinkedIn would probably be a better tool than blogging and hoping these 20 people came to his website after doing a search.
When the keyword research shows hundreds of people are searching locally every month for what you sell and you’re not appearing at the top of page 1.
Note, you need to check your SEO with a private browsing window to clear out everything Google knows about you based on your search history, Gmail, and location.
Change it from a brochure people check out after they’ve already heard of you into a lead generation tool that brings prospects and customers to you.
Note that you need a good website with clear “calls to action” (like Call Now or Contact Us) so the visitor traffic that comes to your site contacts you or comes to your physical location.

Organic results are the results that appear in the natural listings area of the search results page. The paid search area is the top 4 results above the organic area, and they have a little “Ad” notice next to them.
Meta description is the text that appears below your page in a search engine result that explains what the page is about. The meta description “Learn the elements required to write a complete blog post in just 11 easy steps. Meta descriptions do still matter, just not in the same way they used to. They used to be used to optimise for keywords so crawlers would know more about your page contents. Now it’s more important you write something compelling that makes readers want to click so you can improve conversion rates.
Your primary domain should not include a keyword just for the sake of keyword optimisation; this can actually hurt your SEO efforts. If your company name happens to have a keyword, that’s fine, but don’t go buying whoarethebestlawyserinlondon.co.uk
Unfortunately there’s no correct formula, mostly because that’s the wrong way to think about keyword optimisation, you should have great content that’s useful to your customer or client, and write naturally about your product of service – Google will work out the rest.

- How much content is created
- The quality grade of the content
- How the content resonates with your audience
- If you’re a big or small site with strong or weak domain authority
- Visitor engagement
