SEO, otherwise known as search engine optimization, is the art of being attractive to search engines. Search engines can bring internet users to your article without a direct cost to you…if you have the best content.
Search engine rankings and credit scores are similar in that no one knows exactly how much a specific activity will improve or reduce your credit score, but many people know the general behaviors that will make the score go up or down. There are hundreds of factors that go into these search engines determining the most relevant results for a given search term, but don’t let SEO intimidate you. There are simple things you can do to increase your chances of being found through internet search engines.
