What is involved with Content Optimization?
The process of making your website’s home page or a particular page on your website more attractive to search engines and users is called optimization.

Search engines then use this information in the search results they display for relevant keyword terms or phrases. As content in the form of text, images, videos, and news is now included in these search results, the content optimization processes you use should be tailored to the types of content you are producing.
