Search engine optimization or SEO is a most essential part of marketing on the Internet and generating a high amount of traffic to your website. It basically works over several stages and is really a very simple concept to grasp.

Basically, the majority of people visiting your website will be coming from the search engines. So for obvious reasons, this has a direct impact on the amount of traffic that your site receives and the more traffic that your site receives, the more money you earn from advertising revenue if you are in an affiliate program of some kind or a using pay per click advertisements and the more products and services you can sell if relevant,

To get started is search engine optimization, you need to realize that it is all based around keywords. Using the right number of keywords and in the right places of your website is essential. You need to remember that websites are indexed in the search engine indexes and websites and their contents are found by programs called crawlers which the search engines used to index web pages.

To design your site in such a way that it generates as much traffic as possible, you need to consider what keywords are effective. To do this, you need to put yourself in the situation of the potential visitors and consider what they would enter into the search engine boxes. What are the terms and keywords that they are going to be searching for to get the results?

These keywords then need to be included in the content of your site, ideally once or twice in each article which their relevant to and in the titles. Having a domain name which also contains a keyword that is relevant to the overall theme of your site is also useful. Unfortunate this is difficult and in many cases impossible due to them being so much competition.

Finally, remember that generating traffic to your website is the most important aspect. However, this is only true of a commercial website and you don't need to worry about search engine optimization if it is a small personal website and for some reason you specifically want a huge amount of visitors. However, search engine optimization is essential for any website that serves to make money through advertising revenue or anything else such as affiliate programs or sales.
