Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO is the practice of developing a site’s content and architecture so that search engines like Google will rank it high in natural search results. In addition to scanning a site’s copy for keyword mentions, search engines catalog how many other sites link to it. Web crawlers see these links as “votes of confidence” that the site has value.
