A Complete Guide on SEO

what is seo

Before starting any deep discussions, let’s start with the basics. What exactly is SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimization. Now, the full form in itself is self-explanatory that here we are talking about optimizing the quality of content in a way such that search engine directs most of the traffic towards it.


Now, where you might have heard this terminology?

If it still hasn’t clicked yet, then let me remind you that this is the most talked about terminology while discussing PPC campaigns.


So, in PPC how it is playing an important role?  When any advertiser uploads an ad on any search engine then it gets ranked on the basis of its quality score and views. So, if the ad uploaded by the advertiser attains highest rank, then the search engine would list it at the top of any searches made by the user. So, automatically more traffic would be redirected to that ad. This is how SEO influences PPC campaigns.


How SEO influences your Google adwords?

Just like any coin has two phases, same way SEO comes with its own share of advantages and disadvantages.


No doubt it is helping you by redirecting quantity traffic towards your ad. But have you ever wondered if it is really helping you apart from reducing your ad cost?


It also attracts unwanted attention towards your ad. You also get visitors who are not even remotely interested in your product. For example, you wanted clients who are interested in buying fleece hoodies, but despite that your ad is being visited by users who are more interested in buying fleece sweaters or fleece jackets.

How does SEO work?

Preparing an index of any project may sound similar to how SEO works. Just imagine preparing an index according to the certain ranking parameters.


Google employs a crawler to perform the job. The crawler gathers information matching the search query of the user. Now, that information is collected in the form of the binary language. So, these 0 and 1 are compiled together and run through an algorithm that double checks of the information is fulfilling the answers to  required search query.
