The full form of SEO is Search Engine Optimization and it is a technique with the help of which we rank our posts in the top position on the first page of any search engine.

All bloggers' goal is to get the first position in search engines like Google and bring more and more traffic to their blog.

When you start Blogging we must have heard about SEO.

Any new blogger does not understand this and just spends more and more time writing blog designs and posts.

But after some time, despite working so hard, when the visitors of the page on the blog is zero, then the desire to know also arises in their minds that what is this search engine optimization, why is it necessary and how?

You understand that just as there are crores of stars in the sky, in the same way, there are crores of websites on the internet.

People only know or recognize the website which is famous by the brand name or which the search engine keeps above in the result page. You would also like that whatever page you have on your blog should make it to the first place of Google.

That is why let us know what SEO means.

What is SEO?

The full form of SEO is Search Engine Optimization. This is a way in which we can rank our posts in search engines.

This is a technique using which we optimize the post written on our blog so that it ranks in the top position on the first page of search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo...

You are reading this post because it has reached you only because of SEO. So now be sure that you are at the right place.

I will give you all the information about this technique. By which you will get every information that will answer every question related to SEO that you are looking for.

In the beginning, a new blogger does not have any idea about this.

But gradually the new blogger comes to know the importance of this word and also understands that there is no benefit in blogging without search engine optimization.

If a blogger is not aware of this, then that blogger's blog will simply be lost on the internet and will not reach the people.

For example, let's say that there are many stars in the sky, but we recognize the ones that give more light or are closer to us.

If we know optimization well then we can make our blog or website 1 No. Rank on position. If we do not do Search Engine Optimization, we will not see our website or blog anywhere on the result page of the Search Engine.

Let us understand it with the help of an example. Suppose I want to get information about Pen from Google, then I will search "What is Pen" Now Google will show all the articles related to the word Pen in the search result.

In this, we will see many different websites that have written posts about Pen. So as we are served the desired website, we will simply go to a website and look for the information required.

If we do not get satisfaction from the information in it, then we can see the other posts related to it to find our desired answer.

The search engine optimization of the blog which is at number 1 in this search result is the strongest, only then it is ranking at No 1. position. There are chances of getting more traffic by staying ranked in the first position.

Hey πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

This looks like a good post here. Can you share this in full on DEV?

DEV generally asks that folks share their posts in full if possible and there is tooling provided to make it so that it's relatively easy to repost from outside blogs.

Hope you'll consider sharing the full post going forward.
