Do you remember back in the days before we had search engines and the internet when you’d have to consult an encyclopedia in order to learn about the world? Do you remember looking up the phone number of a plumber or other service in the yellow pages?
Even then, we had to search through directories in order to get the information we needed. It took longer to get the information we needed.
With the invention of the search engine, the way we’ve looked up information has been revolutionized to the point where we expect a near instantaneous response to our queries.
Because of how complex things have gotten since the invention of the search engine and SEO, sometimes, we could use some help figuring out how to improve the way our websites get indexed on search engines, such as Google and Bing.
