If you're not familiar with Search Engine Optimization (SEO), don't feel bad. Plenty of people may not the ins-and-outs.At a basic level, SEO is a strategy to drive traffic to your website via search engines via keywords and links. And with increased traffic comes the ultimate goal -- increased revenue!The concept is simple enough: climb the search engine ladder to make your website show up on the front page. Generally speaking, people don't tend to go past the top page of Google.When was the last time you actually clicked through the third or fourth page of search results? We certainly can't remember.But how will you figure out what keywords to use and how can you make sure your site is SEO-optimized? And what about the competition?That's where we come in.
We've already established that you don't really have time to re-do your website.And what about coding?

So what was that about keywords we were talking about earlier? What are they and why are they so important?It's simple, really. Keywords are terms that your clients may use when searching for your business or service.Let's say you run an ice cream shop. You'd want to make sure that the term 'ice cream' is used throughout your website's content.That way, when a potential client is looking for ice cream, your site will pop up. It all has to do with algorithms.And Google's algorithms update frequently, so strategies always need tweaking.
