So, this lesson is all about SEO basics. We’ll talk about what search engine optimization is, why it’s important and how Google works.

SEO stands for search engine optimization. And it’s the process of optimizing content to be discovered through a search engine’s organic search results.

If you’re completely new to SEO, then it’s easiest to think of search engines as libraries. But instead of storing books, they store copies of websites and web pages.

So when you search for a query, the search engine will then look through all pages in its index and try to return the most relevant results. And SEO helps demonstrate to search engines that your page is that result.

Now, you might be thinking: why should I focus on SEO when there are so many other marketing mediums?

Well, there are 3 major things that attract marketers to search engine optimization and in my opinion, these 3 things make SEO the best traffic source.

You’ll find out what they are in the video.

To do SEO well, you’ll need to learn how Google works. And you’ll learn all about the concepts of crawling, indexation and its ranking algorithm in the video.
