SEO Frequently Asked Questions
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimization is the set of best practices (both marketing and technical) that aim to improve the natural or organic search engine rankings of a given website.
Search engines are motivated by three basic elements: accessibility, relevance and usability.
The accessibility of a destination page or website defines the ease with which a search engine can index it and make a determination of where it fits within the grand scheme of things. Relevance and user experience of the destination determine how well the page aligns with the searchers’ expectations. After all, a poor user experience or irrelevant content will make a user doubt the veracity of the results that a search engine serves up.
Over time, this will erode the confidence of a user in the search engine. This scenario represents a potential death sentence to the search engine business model, which is based on repeated usage.
How do Search Engines Work?
Search engines have two major functions: crawling and building an index with crawlers, which in turn provides users with a ranked list of the websites search engines have determined are the most relevant.
- Crawling and Indexing the billions of documents, pages, files, news, videos, and media on the World Wide Web.
- Providing Answers to user queries, most frequently through lists of relevant pages that they’ve retrieved and ranked for relevancy.
