This is the first of a series of installments on the fundamentals of Search Engine Optimization, which you may know as SEO. What is SEO? In short SEO is the ever evolving task of enhancing your website for optimal search engine performance to gain visibility and traffic - ultimately getting your website found by the billions people searching on Google, Yahoo! and MSN.
Some think that's an easy task? Most don't even know what SEO means to an online business? At the end of day we all understand that if your website isn't being visited, well then you just have a website.
Each keyword term or phrase that you type into a search engine results in hundreds of thousands if not millions of web pages all competing to be on top.
