SEO: Simplified and Explained
When we use a search engine and enter our query, we immediately expect to find the best results, ie the most relevant pages in relation to the search we have performed.
For example, if I was searching for “Deals on shoes”, I would not want to find the website for a dog boarding house in Roskilde. I would also like with my search to find more information about prices, opening hours, photos etc ..
Therefore, working with SEO is also a job of optimizing the content of your website, and creating rich and relevant content, with images, video and everything else that creates relevance in relation to the user’s query in the search engine, which contains the words “keywords” or sentences that we want to be found on.
There is also a very important job in creating links to its website, the web pages that have many links that point to it, often experience a lot of traffic, you can see links as our paths that lead us to the places we want to go .
By getting websites that are relevant in relation to us to link to us, a better experience is created for the user who clicked on to us, therefore it is important to get good and relevant websites to link to us.
