01.What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It covers a series of activity you do to improve your blog’s positions in organic (non-paid) search engine results.
02.Why You Need To Focus on SEO?
Being a blogger, you understand better than anyone that lifeblood of having a successful blog is ‘Traffic’.
Because without traffic, you can’t build an email list, make any affiliate commission nor sell your own product/service, right?
Optimizing your blog for search engine is the best way to drive targeted traffic over the time.
Although social media or paid advertisements might give you a spike of traffic for a day or continue sending visitors as long as you pay. But learning SEO is a investment that will keep paying off as long as your blog continues.
Google, being the biggest search engine in the world gets over 3.5 billion searches per day (That’s a lot).
With so many searches, come many opportunities for you to position yourself to be found when someone searches for something related to your blog niche.
03.How Search Engine Works?

Well, the process is simpler than you might think.
Search Engine have bots (computer programs), also called spiders, that crawl the internet to discover new websites, pages, and other contents.
When spider discover new web pages & content, they store the information in an index (a large database containing all the web pages found on the internet).
Having built a massive index, Search engines use algorithms (ranking factors) to analyze web page and decide where to rank it in the search engine results pages (SERPs).
04.Search Engine Ranking Factors
Google has over 200 ranking factors that determine where a web page would appear in search results.
Luckily you don’t have to worry about all of them, as just a few make up the majority of what produces results.

Take note on what makes those page good and areas where you can improve to create something better or different.
