Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
How search engines work
Search engines have three major functions: crawling the web, generating an index from the information retrieved and then providing a ranked list of the websites they’ve determined are the most relevant to the search terms entered. To reach the billions of interconnected documents and sites on the web, search engines’ have automated robots, called “crawlers” or “spiders”. When a person performs an online search, the search engine returns those results that are relevant to the searcher’s query and then ranks those results according to the popularity of the websites. SEO is meant to influence both relevance and popularity.
The most popular search engines are Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, AOL search, WOW, WebCrawler, MyWebSearch, Infospace, info, and DuckDuckGo. Algoma Web Design adheres to the webmaster guidelines set forth by Google due to the fact it is the most popular search engine currently available.
