Why Repeat Yourself SEO 101

Making a web page search engine friendly plays a huge role in whats called Search Engine Optimization or SEO for short. Essentially there are many ways to optimize a website to make it more search engine friendly and the main reason is to make it easier for engines to find the page giving it a better rank amongst masses of other webpages. In other words web pages that are not SEO friendly are harder to find when people search for them cia search field using keywords and therefore are less likely to reach their audience. Who wants to create a website that no one knows exists or is the 2000th hit instead of on the first few pages or even the top 20? Crawlers are what searches use to sift through keyword within a page to match the ones another user is searching for. Since crawlers look for keywords it’s a good idea to pick several key words and try to use them often. Make your posts clear and concise like my previous post on social media marketing where I used those words probably more than I needed to, but for the sake of searchability it’s worth it. The more easily my site is found the more traffic it gets and the more popular it becomes. When creating the Social Media marketing post there were many additional text boxes for picture captions, tags, secondary captions, alternative text all of which I filled out. Since crawlers don’t search pictures’ but search captions of pictures it’s a good idea to do this. It’s a also a great way to throw in a few more additional keywords. SEO is a long and tedious process, but a web page written, planned, and organized well increases its searchability and makes the webpage an easier target for any sharpshooting web crawler and will save you also of time, headache, and editing in the future. This is another JPEG I found with the ABC’s to SEO optimization.
