SEO is the abbreviation for Search Engine Optimization. It is the process of getting your website higher in search engine results pages (SERPS). This can be done in two ways, white-hat or black-hat techniques. White-hat is ethical and does not violate the search engine’s guidelines or terms of use. Black-hat is any technique used to trick the search engines to think you should be higher on search results. Black-hat techniques sound great but search engines such as Google are much smarter than the black-hat SEO guys and once they catch on to your tricks they will ban your site forever.

Here I have listed some white-hat terminology to help you understand what SEO is so that you are better educated when reading about how to use SEO for your site or speaking with SEO service companies. In our case we work hard to get your site where you want and then to keep it there. Here we hope to clear up the jargon and offer clarity on ways we get our job done.

If you need additional answers about these terms, the techniques we use or any other question you may have, please phone us at (323) 230-0365. We’ll be happy to help.

Keyword Research is extremely important as the key role in a quality SEO campaign. Businesses often mistaking select one word or two word keywords for their campaign. This is fine in some situations.
