SEO: Search Engine Optimization

Search engine optimization has come to mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. 
In the strictest sense, SEO is about the on-page and off-page design strategies you can use to improve your search engine ranking. 
This usually means tweaking your web site, using design elements and content. 
And in most cases, it also means spending no money at all."
