What is SEO?

SEO is the best way for your users to find you through searches in which your website is relevant. These users look for what you offer them. The best way to reach them is through a search engine. But, what is SEO?

In order to answer the question What is SEO? we should first know what it stands for: SEO is the abbreviations of (Search Engine Optimization). This technique refers to a set of measures to improve the positioning of a Web page (address), in the ranking or position of the different search engines, in order to get above the competitors when making a certain query. Currently, SEO is an essential part in the preparation or modification and maintenance of campaigns on the Internet and Web pages, either to improve its dissemination or to make itself known, since a correctly done SEO, will facilitate the different search engines, the Obtaining the data of our page. This set of measures, not only contemplates techniques, the content is also very important, a disproportionate technical quality of elaboration will not make any sense if the texts are empty of interest. There are companies that in the past included textbooks in their pages and with that they got a penalty.

How do search engines work?

After knowing What is SEO we should also know that the operation of a search engine can be summarized in two steps: tracking and indexing.

Tracking

A search engine crawls the web crawling with what are called bots. These scroll through all the pages through the links. Hence the importance of a good link structure. As any user would do when browsing the content of the Web, they pass from one link to another and collect data about those web pages that they provide to their servers. The crawling process begins with a list of web addresses of previous crawls and sitemaps provided by other web pages. Once they access these webs, the bots look for links to other pages to visit them. The bots are especially attracted to new sites and to changes in existing webs. It is the bots themselves that decide which pages to visit, how often and how long they will crawl that web, that’s why it’s important to have an optimal loading time and updated content. It is very common that in a web page you need to restrict the tracking of some pages or certain content to avoid that they appear in the search results. For this, you can tell search engine bots not to crawl certain pages through the “robots.txt” file.

Indexing

Once a bot has crawled a web and collected the necessary information, these pages are included in an index. There they are ordered according to their content, their authority and their relevance. In this way, when we make a query to the search engine it will be much easier to show us the results that are more related to our query. At first, the search engines were based on the number of times a word was repeated. When doing a search they tracked those terms in their index to find which pages they had in their texts, positioning better the one that more times had it repeated. Currently, they are more sophisticated and base their indexes on hundreds of different aspects. The date of publication, if they contain images, videos or animations, microformats, etc. they are some of those aspects. Now they give more priority to the quality of the content.

Once the pages are tracked and indexed, the time comes when the algorithm acts: algorithms are the computer processes that decide which pages appear before or after the search results. Once the search is done, the algorithms check the indexes. This way they will know which are the most relevant pages taking into account the hundreds of positioning factors. And all this happens in a matter of milliseconds.

SEO URL Tips when constructing your page urls

When working on your On-Page Optimization, it’s easy to forget about the page URL while we are so focused on the body of the page. Before you hit that “Publish” button, follow these SEO URL tips to ensure your SEO is complete.

What Is a URL?

Making a summarized version of Wikipedia: A URL is the text version to replace the IP addresses so that it is both readable for people and for computers, in order to communicate with the servers.

In 1995, Tim Berners-Lee, the father of the World Wide Web implemented the standard that would later be called URL, today it is estimated that there are more than 100 billion web pages using the URL standard.

How to Optimize the SEO Of A URL

Follow these SEO URL tips

1. Add the Keyword
Among these SEO URL tips, it is important to add the keyword in the URL whenever possible (and that makes sense) for several reasons. Do not confuse it with adding the keyword to the domain of your website, which has long ceased to be a positioning factor.

The first reason is that many times the URLs are copied and pasted in social networks or blog and a specific anchor text is not added, keeping the URL as anchor text, so it is important to add a well-optimized URL.

The second is that it helps users who find your URL on social networks, in an email or any other medium; to understand what is going to be found on the page.

The third is that the keywords are highlighted in the search results and the URLs are a very important part of what is displayed in Google.

2. Use the Scripts

Whenever you want to separate words in a URL you have to use hyphens (-) and try to avoid types of separators like underscores and the + symbol.

3. Avoid the Parameters Whenever Possible

The parameters in a URL must be avoided as much as possible since it is very difficult in an e-commerce to often differentiate between versions of the same product or to order a series of products without using parameters.

There are many types of parameters: product filters (colour, size, punctuation), ordering (lower price, relevance, higher price, grid …), pages (in the case of a blog) and user sessions. The problem, in addition to the loss of positioning when increasing the length of it, is that many of these parameters do not change the content of the page. This produces many URLs for the same content.

4. The Shorter the URL The Better

There is no limit for the length of a URL, but it is recommended that it be short for two reasons:

For the user, it will be much easier to read and understand a short URL than a long one.

The positioning capacity of a word in a URL is lower the more to the right of the URL it is and the more words the URL has.

5. Do Not Use “Stopwords”

Although stop words are included in the title or header of your website, it is not necessary to put them in the URL. If you can eliminate these types of words without losing the URL sense, do it.

As you can see in this article, the title is “SEO URL tips”. The URL is completely readable and we have removed a lot of words that would otherwise make it very long.
