          LUCKIEST Guide

          The purpose of SEO (indirectly) is to reduce the time a person spends  searching for a relevant result (by elevating that page above the fold in the  top 5 positions).

           

          This is accomplished through refinement and streamlining of various aspects  of the target site and page ranging from the programming platform, the hosting  environment, site  architecture, tweaks to images  content and tags, link  popularity and most importantly the chronological  order of events that transpire to cultivate a site into a top 10 candidate  (which aside from the previous variables is trust and authority).

                  SEO is a way to get your site noticed by people who are interested in your product or service.

                  It basically consists of getting the search engines (mainly Google) to give your site a high rank.

                   

                  That high rank means that other sites are linking to you and thus making you popular. It also means that you should have content (articles, etc) on your site that are relevant to what people visiting are looking for.

                   

                  You can pay firms for SEO help, but it's something that you can also learn to do a lot of yourself.

                    SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the process of improving your website's ranking in the search engines, more specifically Google. There are many factors that will help improve the SEO of your site, but probably the most important factor is high value inbound links. Links from other high value, visible sites will improve the ranking of your website in the search engines. Your links should also be targeted to other similar sites in your industry. For example, if you are building links to a website that focuses on city guides you should look for other similar sites that focus on city guides and ask them to link to your site. You should also look at the Google page rank, and the number of inbound links to the site that will be posting your link. As I said, there are many factors to improving SEO, but if you are going to focus on 1, make it link building as it will have the greatest impact.

                      There are many purposes for SEO which stands for Search Engine  Optimization. SEO is a tactic to help webmasters increase traffic by  ranking in the top 10 natural search listings of each major search  engine.

                      Natural search listings are located at the left hand side  of your screen when you visit sites such as Google or MSN. Traffic is  free if you get ranked high within the natural search listings. That is  the appeal of SEO.

                        SEO is a broad field and it's a pretty saturated one too. But when Google announced Caffeine (early 2010), it has made so many things easier and more "natural" for online business owneres and for webmasters.

                         

                        SEO is all about making things natural and the purpose of SEO is to adopt white hat and ethical practices to achieve good ranking (in most cases TOP ranking) in SERPs (search engine result pages).

                         

                        Many things have been changed in 2010 after Caffeine was announced but the basics are still the same (like meta tiles and heading tags etc.). That is why, peopel are also referrefing it to as "SEO 2.0 (you can Google it).

                         

                        Another purpose of SEO (or should I say SEO 2.0) is provide your visitors a user-friendly website experience. So that they may not only just visit your site but there should be a proper chance of converting your visitors into your customers.

                         

                        Hope this helps.

                            An explanation of SEO and how a business can use it to increase sales:

                             

                            SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a free method of advertising given by the search engines. Search engines have to provide relevant results when its users search for something. Google for example returns the top 10 results related to a search query. If your website is listed as the top result then you will get a majority of visits from Google.

                             

                            Let's say that you own a sushi restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. Your website shows up as the top result for the search query "best sushi restaurant atlanta". If 1,000 people search for that term per month, then you should be able to generate between 500-800 new visitors to your website. Depending on your price, hours, location, reviews, menu choice, or other factors, you could generate several hundred new customers to your business just from that one listing.

                             

                            In this example, we are only discussing one search term. Your business can have multiple top listings for different terms which means you could beat down your competition just by ranking in the search engines. This is what SEO can do for your business. It's not that difficult to take the top spot for the keyword term of your choice. If you hire a professional SEO company to get your business listed on top, it will be a great ROI compared to traditional advertising. A good SEO company will help you find the best keywords for your business, help you analyze the effectiveness of your website and give you an overview of what it takes to get ranked on top of Google and the major search engines.

                              The sole purpose of SEO is to increase your site's visibility and presence in the virtual world. Once that visibility is obtained, it can be converted into other forms like profit or revenue.
