Definition of Search Engine Optimization SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the technique of manipulating search engines to boost traffic a website via unpaid or natural search results as opposed to search engine marketing which one has to pay for paid inclusions.

The list may include search engine submissions, local directory submissions, community creation in social networking sites, blogging, forum postings, social bookmarking, link exchange, link baiting, cross-linking, photo sharing, video promotions, business reviews, article submission, press release promotion, classifieds submission, social shopping network, question and answering sites, document sharing, CSS W3C and RSS directory submissions, widget/gadget development, and pay per click advertising campaign.
