SEO - How, when and why?
SEO is easy and hard - all at the same time
SEO is often misused, as a way for you to get your page on the top of google, when it's really all about user experience!
01 - How?
SEO is not rocket science, it's hard work and concistency
Before going in to depth with what search engine optimization is, and how it's best accomplished, try asking your self - what is the purpose of search engines? What is it they try to do?
If we take Google as our example, the short version is that they want you to find - exactly - what you're looking for. And they want you to have the best experience while doing so. This becomes very apparent when testing a site using PageSpeed Insights (https://pagespeed.web.dev).
Here your site is measured in speed, time to interactive, first contentful paint, blocking time, largest contentful paint, cumulative layout shift etc. All of which are quantitative measurements of user experience. How fast can a user see the content on the site, are they disturbed by shifting content and what if they are in a rural area with only 3G connection?
Handling these, are a great start to becoming good friends with google, gaining a higher PageRank.
01 - How? (continued
Surely not only speed matters?
Obviously, it has to do with more than just speed. Another important fact, is that the information - which the user is seeking - is easily available for them to find when they land on your page. If they searched for a purple sneaker in size 44, they should land on that exact sneaker, when entering your site.
So the next fundamental thing, to take into account is to make sure you're answering questions, a user may have about your product or products like it. This will help you gain a higher PageRank, while also staying relevant on searches regarding your product. For instance, if a user search for "Is the iPhone 14 water proof" or "Which iPhone suits me best" - you could be answering these questions, brining more traffic to your site.
