What Is SEO?


SEO is the abbreviation for Search Engine Optimization as the process of optimizing a web page or post to rank on the unpaid listings in search results like Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Baidu, etc.

How Search Engines And SEO Work, Explained.


When users search on Google, they aren’t searching on the web; they’re accessing Google’s index of the web.


Here is what I mean…

A Google Index means a giant list of libraries or databases stored with cached information from a web page.

Okay, I know this sounds a little more advanced here, but let me break it down:

In a nutshell, Google uses machine learning and algorithm software called search engine spiders such as Googlebot, Web crawlers, etc. to find every possible page on the internet.

At first, Google’s bot crawls pages on the web through links connecting to each page and understanding what the site is about and it’s content before storing them in their index.

So when you ask a question on Google search box;

The crawler goes back to the index library and filters the most relevant page that answers your question and delivers you your result in few seconds.

Here is an interesting video you might consider watching on how search works by Matt Cutts.



Let’s take another example to help you better understand how the search and SEO work.

Let’s say a user in Lagos is looking to visit a bookstore and types into Google “bookstore in Maryland.”

Now, this is a broad keyword; because there are lots of places to find a bookstore and different places called Maryland;


Now, this is a broad keyword; because there are lots of places to find bookstores and different places called Maryland;

How does Google know what the user is searching for; If thousands of pages or sites have content on “Bookstore in Maryland”…?

And how does it determine which page is more relevant to show at the top of the search result?

This is where SEO is born…


SEO is all about optimizing your web page or post to be friendly with the search engines and producing quality content that answers the user’s query or questions.

According to experts, over 200 SEO factors are involved for a page or post to rank in the SERP (Search Engine Result Page).
