What Is SEO

No matter how long you’ve been blogging, if you’re using the internet, you will have an idea about search engines, ranking, and how you find specific things online.

Search Engine Optimization is your key to getting your brand ranking highly on Google. It is exactly what it says on the tin: optimization for search engines.

There is one major search engine that you can probably already think of as you read this. But there are other options too. There is Google, Yahoo, Bing.

All of these search engines use their algorithms and programmes to rank everything on the internet depending on your search. This takes seconds and as soon as you press enter, the keywords your input into the search engine will qualify which links will appear.

To ensure that you are being seen by the right kinds of audiences (fellow bloggers, brands, etc.) you need to make sure that the SEO on your blog is performing the best it can.

But that can be hard when you’re a one man band. That’s where SEO plugins for WordPress come in handy.
