The History of SEO

The History of SEO

Web 1.0 was just a collection of websites, webpages and search engines. That was important, because people used search engines to find pages. A search engine offered only ten results, so if your webpage was at the top, you got pretty much all of the traffic for that search. So you had to do everything possible to get your webpage to the top.

But the Web is changing.

Google slowly realized their original search algorithm was easy to spoof. They had to develop a new approach to bring the best sites to the top and block the scams. It’s no longer a simple matter of a few keywords, meta-tags, and links to be at the top of Google. You need to understand quality SEO.
