Specific Answers To Some SEO Questions You Were Too Ignorant To Ask

We have definitely made it more easy than you can ever ask for.

1) What is SEO?
SEO stands for search engine optimization. It refers to techniques that help your website become more visible in organic search results for the people who are looking for your brand, product, or service via search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

2) What’s the difference between organic vs. paid results?
Organic results are the results that appear in search engines, for free, based on an algorithm.
Paid — or inorganic — search results appear at the top or side of a page.
These are the links that advertisers pay to appear on different search engines.

3) What are meta descriptions and do they still matter?
A meta description is the text that appears below your page in a search engine result that explains what the page is all about. In this example, the meta description is “Learn the elements needed to write a comprehensive blog post in just 9 easy steps.”

Meta descriptions still matter, just not in the same way they used to. They used to be a place to optimize for keywords so crawlers would know more about your page contents; now, it’s more important you write something compelling that makes readers want to click so you can improve conversion rates from SERP results to your website.

4) Should I optimize my domain name to include keywords?
Your primary domain should not include a keyword just for the sake of keyword optimization — that can actually hurt your SEO. If your company name happens to have a keyword, that’s fine, but don’t go buying inboundmarketingsoftwarebloggingsoci(dot)com.
Get what I mean?

5) How do I know when I’m using the right number of keywords on a page?
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you an exact number that is the “right” number of keywords on a page, mostly because that’s the wrong way to think about keyword optimization.
There’s no keyword density you should be aiming for — in fact, using a keyword too many times can result in penalization due to “keyword stuffing.” Just keep the reader in mind, and only use keywords when you need to. You’ll find enough natural opportunities to include keywords that you won’t even have to worry about reaching an arbitrary number.

6) What’s the difference between internal and inbound links?
Internal links are links on a page on your site that go to another page on your site.
Inbound links are other websites that link to your content. Both are valuable for SEO.

7) How many internal links do I need on each page of content?
Just like you should avoid stuffing too many keywords into your content, you should avoid stuffing too many links into your content. Only include them when it improves the reader experience.

cool Where is the “|” on my keyboard?.
its usually above the “Enter Key” on your keyboard.

9) Do I need to know code to do SEO myself?
You do not need to know how to code for every element of search optimization.
There are some more advanced SEO tactics that you will need a basic understanding of code for, but it isn’t necessary for every part.

10) What is robots.txt?
This is a page that gives search engines information about the pages a company wants indexed or crawled. You can find this page by doing to YOURDOMAIN/robots.txt.
