What Is SEO?
It’s Simpler Than You Think!
SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is the name given to activity that attempts to improve search engine rankings.
In search results Google™ displays links to pages it considers relevant and authoritative. Authority is mostly measured by analysing the number and quality of links from other web pages.
In simple terms your web pages have the potential to rank in Google™ so long as other web pages link to them.
Make Your Site Appear in Google™
Great Content encourages people to link to your pages and shows Google™ your pages are interesting and authoritative. This leads to search engine success because Google™ wants to show interesting and authoritative pages in its search results. It’s that simple!

How Does Google™ Rank Pages?
Google™ promotes authority pages to the top of its rankings so it’s your job to create pages that become authority pages. This involves writing content people find useful because useful content is shared in blogs, twitter feeds etc., and over time Google™ picks up on these authority signals. This virtuous circle creates strong and sustainable Google™ rankings.
