In older days, if we have started any business we have to do a door to door promotion or tell our family members or relatives or friends which were extremely stressful and yielded little results. Now-a-days people or even small kids surf the Internet for their desired information. People these days want instant results so that they do not waste or spend long hours in the internet searching for their required websites down to the bottom of the list. Normally, people who search in the Internet want to know something about a certain field of business or expertise. In other words they have a lot of questions about something. In this case, the searcher wants a website that can explain everything in the shortest possible time and not do otherwise.
By Search engine optimization we can get the outcomes we never experienced before. Search engine optimization can offer you the success that you want if you can only bring out the best in the process and in your business. But doing such a thing requires an intensive knowledge and research based on the demands and complexities of the market.
What is search engine optimization?
SEO or search engine optimization is the process of enhancing your website through following various tips and tricks so that people who are searching in the internet search engines will be able to find your site on the top of the search results. The process of increasing the amount of visitors to a Web site is what SEO means. The higher a Web site ranks in the results of a search, the greater the chance of that site being visited by a user. It is a common practice for the Internet users not to click through pages and pages of search results, so where a site ranks in a search is essential for directing more traffic toward the site. The three most popular search engines at present are Google, MSN, and Yahoo. Search engine optimization makes your website easily accessed and viewed by thousands or even millions of people around the world. SEO helps to ensure that a site is accessible to a search engine and improves the chances that the site will be found by the search engine.
SEO is the process and practice of optimizing your website so that it ranks well on search engine results pages (SERP) When someone types a word or phrase into search engines (like Google, Yahoo, Msn etc., ) looking for your product, you want to appear on the first or second page of the search results.

This simply means that search engine optimization's goal is to make a website appear on the first pages, if not the first page of a search done through the search engine.
There are two ways to be able to get noticed by search engines. One is through pay-per-click-advertisements (sponsored advertisement). The second way of getting high rankings from search engines is through organic searches or natural search.
The main purpose of search engine optimization is to increase the traffic generated by a website. Websites are built to be seen by Internet surfers and search engines can help it achieve this goal. The power of the search engine should not be underestimated. It is one of the building blocks of the foundation of the Internet. A survey showed that 90% of all Internet users employ search engines to aid them in their Internet-related activities. Google, the dominant player in the search engine industry, generates 70% of all search-related Internet activity.
People and Search Engines are alike
Search engines behave like people. They like websites, WHICH contain substantive information about a certain topic. The best sites usually appear first in search engines because people like them as well as the search engines. Search engine optimization does not only generate traffic, it helps maintain the traffic. The behavior of the search engine is indicative to the behavior of the people who visit the website. Search engine optimization leads to the optimization of a webpage or a website. It will lead to a website which is more organized and a website which contains substantive information.

How is Search Engine Optimization works for a website? The term "search engine" is often used generically to describe both crawler-based search engines and human-powered directories. These two types of search engines gather their listings in radically different ways.
Crawler-Based Search Engines
Crawler-based search engines, such as Google, create their listings automatically. They "crawl" or "spider" the web, then people search through what they have found.
If you change your web pages, crawler-based search engines eventually find these changes, and that can affect how you are listed. Page titles, body copy and other elements all play a role.
A human-powered directory, such as the Open Directory, depends on humans for its listings. You submit a short description to the directory for your entire site, or editors write one for sites they review. A search looks for matches only in the descriptions submitted.
Changing your web pages has no effect on your listing. Things that are useful for improving a listing with a search engine have nothing to do with improving a listing in a directory. The only exception is that a good site, with good content, might be more likely to get reviewed for free than a poor site.
"Hybrid Search Engines" Or Mixed Results
In the web's early days, it used to be that a search engine either presented crawler-based results or human-powered listings.
