What is SEO or Search Engine Optimization

Ensure that your website (shop window) is easy to find for the search engines (Google, Bing, Edge, Safari ...) and let these machines understand what you have to offer to potential customers (indexing).

SEO consists of two major parts

technical SEO

the website must be technically correct and up to date according to the latest techniques

content SEO

the website must provide relevant and credible information about what the user is looking for

Both aspects are assessed by the search engines, which gives the website a certain quality and relevance score and places it on the list of sites after a search (ranking).

Example: has your website been adapted for smartphone use, voice search? What about the loading speed of your landing pages? Is there sufficient security available? ...

All aspects that help determine the quality and therefore the position of your website and that must be constantly monitored and optimized. Hence the term Search Engine Optimization. Optimizing is a verb and therefore requires time and energy.
