SEO FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
SEO is search engine optimization, and it is a series of techniques that can make your site more visible to the search engines. Greater search engine visibility makes it easier for potential customers to find your service, product or brand on Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search portals.
If you already monitor your site’s analytics, you may have found that natural, organic SEO brings more sales than paid ads; some see up to ten times more sales from SEO than from paid advertising.
Using the appropriate number of keywords on a page isn’t an exact science. Just consider your page’s audience, and only use keywords when necessary. If you’re doing SEO right, you’ll find enough ways to include your keywords.

This page tells the search engines about the pages you want ‘crawled’ or indexed. Find it by entering your domain name, and adding /robots.txt at the end.
Search engines can’t read images, but can read text. Alt text tells the search engine about images, and if your page doesn’t load, people can still tell what the image is about.

These are lines of text appearing below your web address in SERPs, and they explain what your page is about. Meta descriptions are still important, but in a different way than before – where they used to be a place to do keyword optimization, now, they’re a way to get readers to click on your link.
First, we will ask you to describe your target market, and we’ll get a few suggested keywords from you. Then, we’ll run that info through our set of database tools, where we will get related keywords and data on how many are searching for them. We’ll use that to choose the most valuable keywords, tailoring the list to your budget.
