SEO first began in the mid-1990s. Webmasters and content providers began optimizing sites for search engines, as the first search engines were cataloging the early Web. By that time, what webmasters wanted to do was to submit the address of a page, or URL, to the various engines which would send a “spider” to “crawl” that page, extract links to other pages from it, and return information found on the page to be indexed. The procedure includes a search engine spider downloading a page and storing it on the search engine’s own server, where a second program, known as an “indexer”, extracts various information about the page, such as the words it contains and where are they located, as well as any impact for specific words, and all links the page contains, which are then placed into a scheduler for crawling at a later date.
