How Does SEO Work?
Search Engines have things called spiders, or bots that crawl the internet servers to find content on websites that it then stores in its index. Websites are then filtered according to the search engines algorithms which then store the information that fits its criteria. When a user is performing a search, the search engine will access this index to find the most relevant information it has for the user based on their search keyword or key terms and deliver it to them.
There are a variety of factors that are assessed by search engines to determine the relevancy of the content delivered to search engines users. These include:
Page Rank – Google page rank value base on website popularity, age and content
Website Links – This includes inbound and outbound links
Page Content – Meta Tags, alt tags and on page content
The process of performing SEO is lengthy but has great benefits for those that can achieve 1st page rankings in top search engine results such as Google or Yahoo for keywords or key terms that best define the contents of their site.
