Hello, this is Kurt Francom with Fiddler Online, where I answer hundreds of questions and this is one of them, about small business websites.

Today’s questions is, “What does SEO Stand for?”

It’s a term you hear throwing around by really cool people. “Hey, do you do SEO?”

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. And that is referring to search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, Altavista. Most of those don’t work very well, but Google works fantastic.

So Google has an algorithm and for your website to be ranked there would be fantastic because that means you get a lot of traffic. So individuals will pay SEO companies or try and do SEO themselves or optimize their website. So it’s playing the Google game, it’s going along with the algorithm of Google so it ranks really well when your ideal client searches for a keyword related to your business. I have all sorts of videos about SEO and how I feel about it and ways to go about it. But this is the answer to this question, that SEO stands for  Search Engine Optimization.
