Search Engine Optimization or SEO is the process of increasing the visibility of a website on the organic (or left hand side) results of search engines, compared to the paid advertisement on right hand side of search engines search results.
The duration of an SEO Project can depend on the keywords or the search terms for which a website is being optimized and also the current condition of the website. Usually a typical SEO project can take range from between 4 to 8 months.
The effect of the SEO works usually will stay for a relatively long period. SEO is about being on the top 10 results of major search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. Making it to the top 10 takes a lot of efforts. Maintaining the rankings once we have made it to the top is usually much easier.
The work involved in SEO is a combination of onsite and offsite works. The onsite work involves working on over 100 factors on a website which affect it’s rankings on search engines. The most important among these factors are content, site structure, tags , web page titles and page names. Offsite work involves acquiring contextual, relevant links from partner websites, directories, blogs, forums.
