Search Engine Optimization

The theory is that the earlier (or higher) a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive. SEO considers how search engines work and what people search for, and then it optimizes sites to include relevant content and coding to increase relevance and remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.
