Off-site SEO includes things like inbound links to your site from other sites.

You may wonder how the search engines know what your site is about?  Good question.

The search engine’s sole purpose, it’s very existence, is based on returning relevant results to it’s users.

LET COMMON SENSE SHAPE YOUR SEO

In order to have any hopes of getting on page one of the SERPs, or search engine results pages, you have to tell the search engines what your pages are about.

Sounds like common sense, right?

So to recap, to have any hopes of getting your website on page one of Google, Yahoo or Bing, you need to make sure you have a basic understanding of what your relevant keywords are
— what search terms do you want to be found for when someone is doing a search, and then those keyword phrases need to be represented both on your page and in the code that makes up your pages.
