Most people use gadgets, tablets, laptops, and smartphones to browse the Internet. That makes your website’s SEO more important than ever before. However, if you are a victim of negative SEO or on the unfortunate end of a Google algorithm update that has severely penalized your site on the search engine page rankings for any keyword you’re trying to rank for, things can look bleak.

The goal of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is to improve the ranking of your website in search engines. The higher you are in Google’s first ten listings, the more traffic you’ll get.

Many components go into SEO, including title tags, meta descriptions, keyword research and usage, images, and alt text. However, not all factors play an equal role in determining your rank for any particular keyword or phrase. Understanding how each element affects your ranking can help you make better decisions about spending time on a good SEO strategy.
