You Can't Escape Search Engine Optimization

Whether you have website or a mobile app, you have to make them search engine friendly.
Changing the content, optimizing the meta descriptions, adding alt text, so on and so forth, I honestly start feeling like I'm an editor rather than a developer.
How many of you agree?

SEO

by deborasumopayroll In reply to You Can't Escape Search E ...

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, which is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results.
Here's how it works: Google (or any search engine you're using) has a crawler that goes out and gathers information about all the content they can find on the Internet. The crawlers bring all those 1s and 0s back to the search engine to build an index. That index is then fed through an algorithm that tries to match all that data with your query.
To understand the true meaning of SEO, let's break that definition down and look at the parts:
• Quality of traffic. You can attract all the visitors in the world, but if they're coming to your site because Google tells them you're a resource for Apple computers when really you're a farmer selling apples, that is not quality traffic. Instead you want to attract visitors who are genuinely interested in products that you offer.
• Quantity of traffic. Once you have the right people clicking through from those search engine results pages (SERPs), more traffic is better.
• Organic results. Ads make up a significant portion of many SERPs. Organic traffic is any traffic that you don't have to pay for.

That's right. Be it a website or a mobile app, its promotion through SEO is a must as we need to make sure that our website or for that matter, a mobile app reaches to the top of the search results!
This technique of promotion aims to improve the website's traffic through backlinks. On Page and Off Page are the two types of SEO.
