The number of websites that are being uploaded to the internet is increasing. This is because of the fact that many businesses are turning to the internet community in order to expand their sales through advertisements. There are around eight million internet users and this number is still increasing, which is why the internet is considered as one of the most viable sources of revenue.
Unfortunately, it is also due to the fact that with the increase of websites uploaded onto the internet that many businesses who are trying to start with online marketing is not getting any revenues; the fact there are so many businesses online right now the new websites will have a slim chance of getting their web presence felt by the internet community. It is because of this problem that search engine optimization, or SEO, is very important especially to the starting online business.
One very viable way to get your website noticed is via the search engines. Search engines are applications or website applications that returns a list of website URL’s depending on the keywords entered by the internet user. Search engines display the URL’s according to ranking; they are ranked according on how well the web page is optimized.
Optimization for a website is done through the integration of keywords in the HTML file of a web page more particularly on the meta data; in SEO Meta data is important as it introduces the different keywords to the search engine.
To optimize further, SEO requires that the keywords are also found within the website as part of the text or commonly known as contents. Search engines send out a crawling algorithm, commonly known as a spider, and these spiders gather data from every website and particularly look at the presence of the keywords throughout the web page. The page is then evaluated by the search engine by quantity and quality. Nowadays in SEO, quality is being given much significance.
By definition in SEO, the term quality refers to the relevance of the keyword within the theme of the entire page of content. This is why websites that blindly use the keywords without taking into consideration the actual relevance of the keyword to the statement or content as a whole, is considered as spam by the search engines, which further could mean a failure of your SEO campaign.
Links are also essential for search engines and that is why taking focus on this in your SEO campaign would be a good idea as it would help increase the flow of traffic to your website. Further, it helps you connect your web pages to other web pages that are outside your website. Having these types of viable links would then determine your websites’ importance and your page rank.
