Auditing Your Website
The first steps in auditing a website for SEO is to learn your current rank, review your website's analytics, and determine the keywords that will set you apart.
Crawling and Indexing
Search Engines have automated robots called crawlers that use links to scour the Internet, find web pages, and decipher page data that are indexed to be included in search engine results.
Each search engine has different ranking factors, but they all have a few factors in common: keywords, content, and links. Keywords and content are arguably two of the most important factors that search engines look for when ranking pages. Because of this, it is imperative that you know what keywords are in highest demand within your market and incorporate those keywords into the content on your website. All of your website's content will naturally create a collection of links; search engines use link analysis algorithms that look at the sources, number, and anchor texts of links to help determine their relevance in search queries.
