feature-top

Becoming better at developing websites must continue to happen, and for that to happen, one must continue to learn their craft, or else he/she will be left on the sidelines, by the crocodiles and be eaten alive and experience a terrible developer career death.

The same thing goes on with a website, if a website or application is not constantly being updated regularly with new cool features and news articles, people won’t come and the traffic to the website will go down.

In today’s article we are going to continue talking about, SEO in Drupal 8, to understand line by line what SEO means when we use Drupal 8. Search Engine Optimization is the acronym for SEO, which if done the correct way, it can take your website, to rank high in organic non-paid search engine results.

Ranking improvement to drive traffic to a website is an achievement online; the technical and content publishing strategies of SEO, must be adopted, as best practices, to drive lots of traffic to a website.

Understanding how keyword and search results works, can also bring a lot of traffic to a website; also, good content is taken into consideration, by the search engines as well. Most internet users find websites, when they use search engines, therefore, search engines are the primary method of driving targeted traffic to a website.

If a website wants to be found by its potential customers, this website would be serious about, making sure that search engines have included that website in their database. Search engine traffic can make or break a website’s success; therefore, it is important that a website invests in their SEO. It can have an exceptional rate of return, when compared, with other types of marketing and promotions, that exists today.

 A website should not be hidden deep in search engine results, they should instead, seek to be at the top of the search engine results page, with the right SEO, to bring thousands of visitors to their websites per day.

If a website wants an advantage over its competitors, the owners of that website would have to do a lot of SEO, to remain competitive. The two major functions of SEO are building an index and crawling, which results in providing users with a ranked list of the most relevant websites, they have indexed.

Crawlers or spiders are automated robots, which are responsible for accessing and reaching the billions and billions of the interconnected documents, found online. Massive databases are used to store pieces of the code found, by the spider during the crawl, so that they can be used later for search query results page.

When search engines return a search results page, they do two things, they return results which are relevant to the search query and then they rank those results based on popularity. This is probably why many search engines do a good job at finding articles relevant articles for their users. This is simple to research, however, if a person is researching something very specific, search engines are not able to help. It can take many hours sometimes, to find a valuable website online, using a search engine. As a search engine marketer, it is a good idea to devote yourself to having sympathy for the users of your website.

Hi every one, I obtained a bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics back in 2006, from Claflin University, after I received my bachelor's degree, I gained full time employment as a software engineer at a Video Relay Service company, maintaining databases and developing software for a new developed device called the VPAD.

I worked at that company for two years, then I became a web developer, and worked for a magazine for three years. After that job, I worked as a Drupal web developer, as a subcontractor for the NIH, for a year and then left the job to go back to school.
