Search Engine Optimisation is the strategy to modify your site structure to give your site the best chance of ranking in the non-paid search results of a Search Engine, for a particular keyword phrase.
Once all structural aspects of the site have been brought up to best practice standards, strategies to increase the number of correctly structured links to different parts of the site are required, as links are beneficial to ranking for a particular keyword phrase in the Search Engine results.
The most important thing you can do for SEO is understanding your site and how it is structured, and the impact of that site structure on your SEO. Getting it right means qualified Search Engine leads to your site. Getting it wrong can put up a wall around your site, leaving your business without any Search leads.
