These days it seems like the only thing that most website or blog owners think about, or put first on their list of top priorities for their site, is SEO. As for our readers who don’t know what SEO stands for, it stands for Search Engine Optimization.
Search Engine Optimization or SEO, are some things that a website or blog owner (or someone else) can do for a site itself, its content, including its articles, images, etc. as well as some things that be done off-site that help increase the rankings of a site in the search results pages (SERP’s) of search engine sites.
These things, some of which are more technical, are done so that a website or blog site is made easier and more friendly for the search engine sites like Google, Bing, Yahoo and so on to go through and see what a site has on it so that the search engine know when to display a certain site in its search results pages when someone enters a search term.
Basically SEO are things done to make things easier for the search engines so that in return the search engines will show a certain website or blog higher in the search results pages or SERP’s. The search engines like to find things easier so that they can display relevant results when someone searches for something and making things easier and more appropriate for the search engines will in return benefit a site itself.

There are many different aspects of SEO and many website or blog owners spend a lot of time and money n in order to get their sites to be search engine optimized so that their site will climb their way to the top of the search results pages.
Why do website and blog site owners want their sites shown as high as possible in the search results pages? The main reason that site owners work hard on the SEO for their sites is to increase the amount of traffic/visitors to their website. Traffic is very important to most website and blog owners because that will mean more people are seeing what they are looking and that can help serve to have visitors to that site potentially return to the site again some day.
Some website owners are wanting people to visit their site’s because they have products or services that they are trying to sell, others want people to come to their sites so that they can sell advertising on their site, other site owners might have an event or message that they want people to see. No matter what a site owners reasons are, the more visitors a site has can mean some kind of positive impact for the site owner.
I know we didn’t go too in depth as to exactly what SEO is in our article here today, but we just wanted to give the people who don’t know or understand what SEO is, a rough idea and understanding as to what it is and why it’s important to most website and blog owners.
