Search engine optimisation or ‘SEO’ as it’s know for short, is the art of optimising a website so it appears higher in search results. For example if you searched “SEO Companies in Bristol” or “Great places to eat in London” – the websites at the top of the search results would get more visitors that the websites further down the page.
