Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of getting a website toward the top of an internet search results list.   A coffee shop’s website, for example, is well ‘optimized’ if it consistently comes up first on a search for coffee shop, best café, good hangouts, or other keywords.  SEO is an important aspect of web marketing because the higher the search ranking of a website, the more likely it is to attract users.
