Simple meaning of SEO - Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a web search engine's unpaid results — often referred to as "natural," "organic," or "earned" results.

The main  purpose of SEO is to increased visibility.It's intellectually interesting to  know that there are millions of different websites that are relevant to the  search query, but really, if your website doesn't appear in the first 10  pages (or first 100 results), it's invisible to the world.Also Search engine  optimization is one of the most important components of Internet Marketing.  Each and every technique that is used in online marketing fails or succeeds  on the basis of SEO. If the optimization of the website is effective than the  chances are that your endeavor of marketing products and services on the  internet will be successful.

Search Engine Optimization is the process of improving the visibility of a website on organic ("natural" or un-paid) search engine result pages (SERPs), by incorporating search engine friendly elements into a website. A successful search engine optimization campaign will have, as part of the improvements, carefully select, relevant, keywords which the on-page optimization will be designed to make prominent for search engine algorithms. Search engine optimization is broken down into two basic areas: On-page, and off-page optimization. On-page optimization refers to website elements which comprise a web page, such as HTML code, textual content, and images. Off-page optimization refers, predominantly, to backlinks (links pointing to the site which is being optimized, from other relevant websites).
