SEO as a marketing tool:
The goal of SEO is to generate leads which convert to sales. That is why SEO is a form of marketing, since marketing ultimately aims to sell.
SEO as a process:
Your website will not appear on page one of search engines instantaneously. SEO requires sustained, ongoing effort for at least a few months. The more competition there is, and the more established it is in the search engines, the longer results will take to materialise.
Rankings in the search engines:
Search engines crawlers crawl millions of sites every day, they which they display in the form of Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). Each SERP consists of 10 websites that are ranked from the top of the screen to the bottom according to how relevant they are to the search.
Keywords are descriptions of the information people are looking for. For example, the keywords “Cheap Car Insurance” are a search engine user’s description of the information he’s looking for: cheap car insurance.
