Understanding SEO

SEO (read: eS-i-Ow) stands for Search Engine Optimization, which is an effort to get our blog indexed by search engines (ie search sites like Google, Bing, and Yahoo!) so that visitors find it.

According to data Wikipedia, the term SEO was first used July 26, 1997 by a message spam posted on Usenet. At that time, search engine algorithms were not so complex that they were easily manipulated.

Early versions of the search algorithm were based entirely on information provided by webmasters via meta tags in the HTML code of their website/blog. Meta tags provides information about the content (content) contained on a web page with a set of keywords (keywords).

Some webmasters manipulate by writing keywords that do not match the actual site content, so that search engines misplace and rank the site.

Currently, as Google’s algorithm updates, this kind of manipulation — known as Stuffing — is no longer valid.
