Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is very important on today’s Internet. SEO basically describes all methods of increasing a website’s visibility in the search engines. This can be optimizing the website, link building, monitoring competing websites, link baiting and everything else that is related to that field.
New websites are not found by default and SEO, done knowingly or not, helps increase a website’s visibility so that it attracts visitors and search engines. Everything that improves the visibility is SEO including submitting the website to search engines or directories, writing articles on the website, twittering about the new website, doing link exchanges or building links.
SEO Tools help the webmaster in the process. They provide many features that could also be handled manually but time constraints usually make those tools the best choice.
