					What is SEO?
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of
  Improving the visibility of a web page in search
       engines via the "natural" or un-paid
           ("organic" or "algorithmic")
                  search results.



       Search engine optimization (SEO)
is the art of creating Web pages that will rank
         high in search engine returns.
SEO is accomplished by optimizing certain sections or "elements" in the HTML
coding of each page.

These sections are specifically read by search engines and,
depending on the level of optimization, can create a greater likelihood of
free referral traffic.

There are several methods and opinions about how a web page should be
optimized, and much will depend on the type of site, its content, purpose
and competition.

But in general search engine optimization relies
heavily on the proper use of keywords and key phrases
that describe the site's content.
    What is a keyword?
Keywords are the words people type into the search fields
     for Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask and all the other
              search engines of the world.
