What Search Engine Optimization is all about

Everybody these days is talking about Search Engine Optimization. I've even seen it abbreviated as SEO. If you're wondering what it's all about, it just means making it easy for people to find you on Google.

Explained in plain English, this is what is means - A "search engine" is a site like Google, or Yahoo, or Bing. The "search" makes sense, but why they are calling it an engine, I have no idea. "Optimization" is a big word for making it better. So, if you want to make your site better for people to find you, you are now interested in SEO - Search Engine Optimization.

And, contrary to what a lot of people would like to sell you, it isn't something that you add on to your website, it's something you build into it. Build your website correctly and that will get you on Google. That's what it's supposed to do. It isn't about tricks or "cheats" or "hacks", it's about producing original content and presenting it in a way that both your viewers and the search engines can find.
