What is search engine optimisation (SEO)?

Search engine optimisation, or SEO as it’s commonly abbreviated, is all about increasing the quantity and quality of the website traffic coming through to your website from the search engines (such as Google or Bing). A lot can rest on getting this part of your digital marketing strategy right; it is vitally important to your prospects of successful marketing.

From a strategic point of view search engine optimisation examines how search engines and their complicated algorithms function; it considers the behaviour of searchers, and studies the search terms, words, they type in to the search engine.

Getting your web page higher up the search engine results pages (SERPs) is called improving your rankings. This is the principal aim, because the higher you rank, the easier you will be found. Specifically, the term SEO refers to the practice of improving the standard unpaid so-called ‘organic’ search results shown in the SERPs.

Traditionally SEO doesn’t include any form of paid placement (SEM/PPC), or non-search engine generated direct traffic, but can include increasing the number of back links i.e. incoming links to your website from other web sites. SEO can target a variety of sources, such as text, images, videos or news. Most web searches are now carried out on mobile devices.
