Search engines represent the single most important source of new website visitors today. It is estimated that over 50 million people use search engines every day and that 25 percent of internet users use a search engine four or more times each day.
If your site cannot be found by search engines or your content cannot be put into their databases, you miss out on the opportunities available to websites provided via search – people who want information on what you have to offer.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the practice of optimizing your website by enhancing both the internal and external aspects to increase the amount of targeted traffic that comes to your site from search engines. The term “targeted” is of key importance here, because you are not simply looking to increase your site’s traffic, but are looking to convert that traffic into new customers.
