What is SEO?

SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is the process of using intricate techniques and strategies to obtain a high-ranking placement in the search results page of a search engine (SERP).

SEO works to increase the authority and relevance of your website page, boosting your ranking in search engine results and increasing visibility. This drives more organic traffic to your website.
