As the name implies, the goal of Search Engine Optimization is to optimize your website’s ability to get higher rankings on search engines, which will then increase the number of visitors to your website. To do this, the are many factors and best practices you must implement that will help your website not only rank higher but also have more “click appeal” on Google’s Search Engine Results Page (SERP). Some of the basics include things such as on-page SEO industry best practices to help your website get crawled and indexed properly by search engines.
