What is SEO?
Search engine optimization (SEO) can be described as the procedure for improving the visibility of a website in the search engine results pages through the use of various strategies and tactics.
Why does my website need SEO?
A majority of people in Japan discover websites via search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. Thus, if your website isn't ranked highly in the search engine results, then you may not be able to attract the kind of people you are targeting with your site.
You can achieve any goal you are aiming for so long as you can attract lots of targeted traffic to your website. For example, if your goal is to increase your sales volume, you need to expose your offer to as many people as you can. With more and more websites out there, it’s challenging to have good rankings if your website is not optimized for the search results.
How search engines work?
Search engines crawl billions of documents every time you perform a search. Websites that provide the most relevant answers to your queries may appear on the first page of the search results. However, search engine reviews other various factors when choosing websites, so having a highly relevant website isn't enough.
How to optimize a website?
A website can be tuned to rank well in search results by tweaking number things, whether they're on the website itself(on page) or outside the website (off page). On page factors include meta descriptions, page titles, meta tags, URL structure, internal linking, image tags and more. Off page factors include backlinks, social media and trust elements.
You can optimize a website by yourself if you have a time to learn the theory and implement all the best strategies and tactics. However, if you don’t have time or SEO is not your core business, asking for experts' help would be a better option.
During the search engine optimization process, it's important to understand that achieving a high ranking in search results page takes time. Be wary of those who promise instant results as they could potentially be scammers, and they might cause more harm than good by using banned methods that may cause your website to be de-ranked.
