SEO...Taming those Search Engine Beasts...
Where do Your Pages Rank?
If you aren't happy with the results when you search for your website or the products/services you offer, your website probably needs some "tender-lovin' SEO" work!
Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) simply means that you've designed, developed, and written your pages so that the search engine's robots will pull all of the relevant information from your pages (both elements that are visible on the page as it is displayed to the user, and from the code in your page source) so that users will find you.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your site includes Search Engine directive files (such as your sitemap and robots files), and should be the initial marketing focus of your website design and development.

How Most Search Engines Work
Most of the major search engines pull at least some information from your Open Directory Project (ODP) listing.
Most also use robots (spiders & crawlers are the same thing) - which are computer programs that pull information from the meta tags - including your keywords - and from your pages, as well as additional information from your site. Then, the robot reports the data received from this automated examination of your site to the database and either adds your website, or updates the information that the search engine has already compiled on you.
Each search engine uses it's own proprietary process to determine which of the various elements of your website and on each of your web pages carry the most weight and to determine the RELEVANCY of the page.
Content, keywords, meta tag programming, internal links, external (both incoming and outgoing) links, reciprocal links, robot instructions, age of page, site structure, sitemap info, affiliated advertisers, and SSL pages for secure content are some the page and site elements considered by each search engine's proprietary algorithm.
And there's more! Quality back links, 3rd-party links, cross-linking, popularity on social sites, reviews/rankings, and even the searcher's location, are used to produce the exact page rank (or order) of each search request submitted on their site.
Your online presence and activity on various social networks (such as LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube! and Twitter) is also becoming not only a standard element of how the search engines rank your site, but a key factor.
Additionally, "crowdsourcing" and each users browsing habits and social network use can also influence which sites are returned in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). Yes, this means that several users may use the same keywords and get different results. You may have already noticed the results of the Search Engines using this practice in the ads displayed.
When a user types in keywords to "do a search," the results are displayed based on the relevance of the information in the search engine's database (all of the info listed above about your pages) to the keywords requested, and based on the user's browsing history.
