SEO is short for “search engine optimization.” To put it simply, SEO is any action taken that is meant to better optimize or improve your website’s performance in organic search results. The end goal of SEO is usually to get a website to rank in the #1 spot on search engines like Google, or at least on the first page.
More and more businesses are selling online every day, and competition is getting harder for everyone. SEO has emerged as a way to tell search engines which websites and online stores deserve the valuable attention of shoppers and searchers. Without SEO, Google might rank stores that no one shops at in the very top spot of search results!

If you have a new website, or have never had SEO services performed on your website before, some initial optimization will be performed. This will involve getting those keywords and phrases we identified in our research populated on our website in a few specific places, and in ways that search engines will pick up on.
Initial website optimization usually involves populating your website’s meta description and keywords, which is what users see associated with your website when viewing it in a list of search results. It also involves updating your website’s title and individual page titles to include your business name and important keywords.
There’s also some content that should appear on the first page of your website, as well as other pages. The presence of a few short sentences or paragraphs about your business and products gives us an opportunity to insert the keywords and phrases you want to rank for. While it can be challenging to write natural text that contains these keywords, we’ll find a way to do it. We recognize that there needs to be a balance between a well optimized website and one that users enjoy reading and using.
