SEO explained in plain english
Number of websites on the internet
Google searches every day
your website…make the most out of it!
There are more search engines on the internet than can be easily counted. Each of these search engines explore (crawl) the internet all day everyday, creating a catalog of all websites that they come across. As you can image, this catalog is vast. At the time this was written there were over 1,143,461,800 known websites on the internet.
When you use sites like Google, Yahoo or Bing, these search engines look through their catalogs to find the websites that best meet what you are looking for. These search engines sort the results that they return to you using a custom algorithm designed to show you the best results first.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO), at its most basic level, is the process of ensuring that a website ranks as high up as possible in these search results using a variety of methods and implementing the best practices recommended by these search engines.
