Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO is highly specialized content to optimize websites to help businesses rank higher on SERPs (search engines) and gain more traffic. There are three different types of SEO
On-Page SEO: This SEO focuses on the content that’s actually on site pages, and how to optimize it to boost the website’s ranking for specific keywords.
Off-Page SEO: This SEO focuses on links directed to the website from elsewhere on the internet. The number of backlinks a site has from reputable sources helps you build trust with search algorithms.
Technical SEO: This SEO focuses on a website’s backend architecture, like site code. Google cares just as much about technical set-up as it does content, so this position is important for rankings.
