Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web
page in search engines via the "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. In
general, the earlier (or higher on the page), and more frequently a site appears in the search
results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. SEO may target different
kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search
for, the actual search terms typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website involves editing its content and HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.

According to most search engines, there are several criteria that every web site has
to abide by to be even considered "submissable." These range from being "spiderable" (ability to go from one page to another) to having absolutely no indication of spamming. Some search engines do not consider any individual web page worthy of being submitted unless it has at least 200 words of text. Content is king!

After that, every search engine has its own particular criteria. Google puts great importance on in-coming links (links from other sites to your site). Every page of a
web site should feature at least one related out-going link (to an association, organization, partner, etc.). The returns are even greater if those you link to link
back to you. Yahoo, for example, puts great emphasis on having key words (words descriptive of the site's services) repeated at least four times per page, and have
those key words in "prove" in your copy code. Most search engines put importance
on related out-going links and how "useful" your site is.

The leading search engines, such as Google, Bing and Yahoo!, use crawlers to find
pages for their algorithmic search results.. Some search engines, notably Yahoo!,
operate a paid submission service that guarantee crawling for either a set fee or
cost per click. Such programs usually guarantee inclusion in the database, but do
not guarantee specific ranking within the search results

Two major directories, the Yahoo Directory and the Open Directory Project both
require manual submission and human editorial review. Google offers Google
Webmaster Tools, for which an XML Sitemap feed can be created and submitted
for ensure that all pages are found. At First Group we utilize these and other tools
to assist in our SEO services for our clients. Our 7-8 page monthly statistical report
which provides our clients with data that tells them how many visitors come to their
site, where do they come from, what keywords they used, how often they hit specific pages, etc. This provides an excellent marketing tool.

Because effective SEO may require changes to the HTML source code of a site and
site content, SEO tactic s are incorporated into website development and design.
The term "Search engine friendly" may be used to describe website designs, menus, consent management systems, images, videos, shopping carts, and other elements
that have been optimized for the purpose of search engine exposure. We use a
variety of methods to increase the prominence of a web page within the search

Cross linking between pages of the same website to provide more links to most
important pages may improve its visibility. Writing content that includes frequently searched keyword phrase, so as to be relevant to a wide variety of search queries will tend to increase traffic. Updating content so as to keep search engines crawl ing back frequently can give additional weight to a site. Adding relevant keywords to a web
page's meta, including the title tag and meta description, will tend to improve the relevancy of a site's search listing, thus increasing traffic.
