What is SEO?

I had earlier bumped on websites that involved quite a lot of things that I haven come across.
And the topic being SEO, well there was lots to learn, and I just wanted to share the information.

SEO- is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via "natural" ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results, or the higher it "ranks," the more searchers will visit that site. SEO can also target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines.

SEM- is a form of Internet marketing that seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine result pages (SERPs). According to the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization, SEM methods include: search engine optimization (or SEO), paid placement, and paid inclusion. Other sources, including the New York Times, define SEM as the practice of buying paid search listings.

SMO- is a set of methods for generating publicity through social media, online communities and community websites. Methods of SMO include adding RSS feeds, adding a "Digg This" button, blogging and incorporating third party community functionalities like Flickr photo slides and galleries or YouTube videos. Social media optimization is related to search engine marketing, but differs in several ways, primarily the focus on driving traffic from sources other than search engines, though improved search ranking is also a benefit of successful SMO.

Search Engine Optimization is very important to Internet Marketing if you ask me.
Search Engine Optimization along ith backlinks will get you good search engine rankings.

Search Engine Optimization is a process of positioning your site to rank high on Google or other search engines. The initial process for this is to determine relevant keywords. These keywords should be targeted and have high search volumes. Once you determine the keywords, you must implement them into your site's content and meta data. This implementation will allow the bots to better index your site.

And so,..
SEO is the process and practice of optimizing your website so that it ranks well on search engine results pages (or SERPs). When someone types a word or phrase into search engines (like Google) looking for your product, you want to appear on the first or second page of the search results.
