What Is Seo

So, what is SEO, and how does it work?

SEO can take many forms, from content optimization to local online map listing management. There is no shortage of techniques that can be used to enhance the SEO of your website. These techniques are broken down into two primary categories: On-page and Off-page.

On-Page SEO

On-page SEO is optimization that is done on your live website. This includes both website design/development and content marketing. The single most important part of SEO is found in on-page, which is creating and optimizing content for search. Without textual content on your website that is relevant and targets your desired searches, there will be little chance your site will ever rank on the search engine results page.

Off-Page SEO

Off-page SEO is optimization that is done on other websites. For example, optimizing a business’ online map listing would be considered off-page SEO, as no real work is being done on the website. However, by optimizing online map listings, a business can show up more consistently on search engine map results. Off-page SEO can often be the extra push your website needs to capture high first page rankings but should be given attention after optimizing your website for search.

In total, basic on- and off-page SEO will include:

  • Website Content & Branding
  • Website Architecture/Sitemap
  • HTML Code
  • Linking Strategies
  • Personalization
  • Social Media
  • Content Marketing
  • Map Listings/Directories
  • Analytics
