WHAT IS ONSITE SEO?
Onsite SEO deals with the website as it is seen by both the potential customer and the google bots that roam the internet looking at your site and trying to make sense of it.
For us humans it’s easy to read the text and look at the pictures and understand the message, So long as it has been clearly written and laid out.
However, for the little google spiders or bots, as they are called, to understand they need extra help.
For example, when they come across a picture they must be told what the picture is about, they can then store this information in the giant reference database of all sites, so when someone searches for an item the database can be referenced and if your picture is relevant to the user search, your site will be listed on a Search engine results page (SERP).
So, SEO is just about translating what we can already see and understand into meaningful information for the google bots.
