SEO also is known as search engine optimization, is a method of optimizing a website to show for specific search terms (i.e., SEO Agency). To do this, SEO Agencies typically start by determining ideal search terms based on a site’s/page’s overall search relevance analyzing a combination of keyword traffic and competitiveness. Once the target keywords have been selected, the process of technical onsite optimization begins.
Everything from site/page content, to title tags, meta tags, schema and more are adjusted to focus on the target keywords. Depending on the website this process may take some time, and therefore will be ongoing. Throughout, this process your SEO should be watching your keyword rank to ensure optimizations are truly beneficial.

Content generation can be continued page optimizations, or content generation via the blog.
