What is SEO?

We have discussed SEO pretty well already. If you haven’t taken a peek, do so here. If you do not have time to take a gander at all of the valuable information, bookmark it!

Now on to the question at hand the goal of SEO is not to cheat or what some people think “game” the search engines, but to work them to your advantage. Yes, this is 100% legal. The purpose of SEO is to:

  • Create a great, exceptional user experience.

Website = CAKE!

Okay, you are now wondering why I say website equals cake. Well, let me explain in a moment. A cake is basically made out of icing and tons of sugar and it tastes good, right? Well your website should be just that! No, I don’t mean go purchase a cake theme background either. I mean your links and social media platforms should act as the icing off the cake. As your content and organization of your site should act as the sugar. These few things should make your site into a tasty cake, which consumers will be eating all up!

Search Engines = Blind Date!

Think of when your best friend tries to hook you up with one of their friends. We all have those friends who insist we get out and meet new people and find love, right? Think about what a perfect blind date would be… Well, this is easy, he or she tells you about themselves, what they are truly looking for, and have a great connection with one another. This is very similar to search engines, so in this case treat them as if they are a blind date. You will need to tell the search engine what you are all about, so if you are a plumber, you will want to emphasize on just that and keywords similar to that. However, that does not mean to overuse the word, where it makes reading the content horrid either because you got them to your site you need to impress them with it. If they see a second grader writing skill chances are you are not going to get much business.

This is the basic of the basic SEO. Yes, it may not look like nothing, but this is gold, treat it that way. If you are looking for more SEO knowledge check out here this will be of use to you.

    Thats a great way to explain SEO! Love it.

    • Chrystal, all I have to say is when I was writing this yesterday I could not stop laughing! I had a good time doing this, but if you stop and think about it cake and blind dates are similar to SEO. Hope this will stick into someones head, at least.

    I love the blind date anology. I’ve landed on a few sites that reminded me off a few blind dates. Great sales job, bad product, not even close to as described. It is a shame because I send people to little gems of craft sites from time to time that have great product but lousy SEO thus fewer dates.

  3. Exactly, in order to succeed you need to be truthful about everything. That is what made me think of blind dates. Weird how one thing makes you think of another.
