Why learn about Search Engine Optimization?

Essentially, there are two important things to know about SEO: writing for SEO and schema markup for SEO. Understanding how to these two variables interact will affect how your website is constructed.
SEO starts with well-written content
First, SEO algorithms reward both the quality of written content and how well it is organized. Writing informative, well-written, well-organized content will go a long way to ensure your website appears on the first page of a Google search. Writing well about your business and products is not an easy task, requiring time and effort to get your message just right.

SEO is enhanced by adding schema markup
The second important thing to know about SEO is called schema markup. It’s code added to each page and post to help the search engines return more informative results for users. Schema markup describes your content to search engines to complement the effects of written content on SEO.
