And you all must know how important it is for any blog or website to get traffic. Without traffic, your blog or website has no meaning.
To fully understand SEO, first of all, we need to know what a search engine is and how it works.
What is a Search engine?
First of all, you need to know what a search engine is. The Search engine is like a directory where we search any of our queries and we get answers related to our query. Google and Bing are the two largest search engines in the world of the Internet and most of the people 70-80% of the people search any of their questions on Google itself. That’s why we will also talk about Google here. A search engine is an algorithm that works to give accurate information about the information we have searched on the Internet.
How search engine works
So you have understood that Google is a search engine on which we can get information by searching about any topic. But now the question comes that how Google gives us the related answer to any of our questions in a few seconds. Does Google itself keep all the answers written, no Google does not do anything like this, but it happens that many bloggers like me or you create blogs about different topics and write posts on them.
Did you know that when you search for anything on Google, Google uses a 200 factor to give you the best results, the article that is according to these criteria of Google will show you on the first page of Google? So that you can get the correct information.
In the same way, many business people create websites related to their business. And all these bloggers or website owners have to submit their blog or website to Google. For which Google has created its separate platform Google search console.
In today’s time, there are more than 1.6 billion websites submitted to Google. Which are related to different topics, so whenever a person searches anything on Google, then there are some crawlers of Google.
Crawler consists of robot types who visit different websites and try to know what this website or blog is telling about as well as what is the quality of this website or blog and its Apart from this, these crawlers of Google search many things in websites and blogs. And after that these crawlers show you the top 10 results which can give you the best answer related to your query. So this is the work of the whole search engine. I hope you must have understood well about search engines now.
Now you will find it very easy to understand SEO because you have understood the fundamentals of search engines. We who are blog or website owners, it is always our endeavor that the article of our blog or the page of our website should always come in the first position of the first page of Google so that we get the most traffic. And to bring our blog post or website page to the first page of Google, we have to do SEO.
How SEO Works
Just like if you search for “what is SEO” the search engine brings you the crawling and indexed ranking list. Search engine bots and spiders crawl and index 24 hours a day and build their ranking lists. And as soon as you search for something, you see it on the search engine results page (SERP).
Well, all the search engines have different techniques to work. But every search engine works in three phases.
