Q What is SEO?
You might think of a search engine as a website you visit to type (or speak) a question into a box and Google, Yahoo!, Bing, or whatever search engine you’re using magically replies with a long list of links to webpages that could potentially answer your question. That’s true. Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through search engine results. The popular search engines are Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Q Why is SEO so important?
An important aspect of SEO is making your website easy for both users and search engine robots to understand. Although search engines have become increasingly sophisticated, they still can’t see and understand a web page the same way a human can. SEO helps the engines figure out what each page is about, and how it may be useful for users.
Q How long does it take to get my website “indexed” on the search engines?
There is No set time in for Google to initially index your site – the time taken can vary. The time it does take may vary based upon factors such as;
* Popularity of the site (Whether it has any links to it)
* Whether the content is Crawl-able (Server Responses and Content type)
* Site structure (how pages interlink)
It is possible for a site to be crawled/indexed within 24 hours to one week.
Q What can I do on my website to help with SEO?
Your website must be designed by professional who during the creation of the website could take care of important seo things such as image alt-texts, headings structure, meta tags and making sure seo plugin is installed.
Q How can I find out how much traffic my site receives?

Q How long does it take to see results from SEO?
You will generally see results within first week of the on-page SEO campaign.
Q: Why do many top-listed pages have no content?
Content is king, because that’s what the people who visit your site are looking for. However, content doesn’t necessarily mean 250 words (or whatever) of text. Content means different things for different sites. Content can simply be your product offerings. For instance, sites from well-known brands very often have no visible copy on their home pages, but still rank highly for some very general keywords. This is often due to their strong brand, which brings in tons and tons of natural links to the site.
Natural links are those that people add to their own websites just because they found them relevant to whatever point they were trying to make.
Q: Should I buy numerous keyword rich domains?
There’s no good use for those when it comes to the search engines. If you try to gain an unfair advantage in the engines by blanketing them with lots of different sites, you will then be into that “deceptive” territory I’m always talking about.
