The basics of SEO. Search engines such as Google and Bing use search bots to crawl pages on the internet. They go from site to site, collecting information about websites and webpages and indexing that information for your review. It’s like the internet is a giant library where a librarian (search engine) can pull up a book (or a web site) to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Next, algorithms analyze pages in the index, taking into account hundreds of ranking factors or signals, to determine the order pages should appear in the search results for a given query. Using the library idea, the librarian needs to read every single book in the library. Content is king, because the librarian can tell you exactly which one will have the answers you are looking for.
SEO success factors can be considered proxies for aspects of the user experience. It’s how search bots estimate exactly how well a website or web page can give the searcher what they’re searching for.
Unlike paid search ads, you can’t pay search engines to get higher organic search rankings, which means SEO experts have to put in the work.
