It was interesting to see the big question “What is SEO” being searched on Google by a lot of Sri Lankans approximately around 58 people in Sri Lanka searched the exact term and over 8,000 use other variations of the same term on an average month at the time of writing this post.
However, those of you still wonder What is SEO? SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation that is optimizing your website or webpage for search engines. SEO is also part of online marketing where a website can be optimized to rank on top of the search results for a given keyword on Search Engines which gives a better chance of a searcher visiting the website and making a purchase or making an inquiry. This is different from paid ads or sponsored ads which is a paid service.
There are few very good companies including one of the best SEO company in Sri Lanka which provide SEO services and most of them are outsourced by other holding companies over seas.
If you are interested in SEO, there are number of FREE SEO tools and SEO tutorials that can be found online. However before you use any SEO software I’d recommend you first understand the basics of SEO to avoid complications and mistakes.
