Search Engine Optimization or SEO is often a term thrown around by web designers, digital marketing agencies, or anyone with a basic understanding of the web. But what does it really mean?

According to Google, SEO is “the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.”

Search Engine Land defines SEO as:

the process of improving your site to increase its visibility when people search for products or services related to your business in Google, Bing, and other search engines. The better visibility your pages have in search results, the more likely you are to garner attention and attract prospective and existing customers to your business.

For the purpose of the post, we will use the definition by Search Engine Land to describe the process better. But I do want to expand on it as well. SEO can be broken down into a three-legged stool, with each leg or part being On-page, Off-page, and Technical SEO.
