Types of SEO

There are two types of Search Engine Optimization: onsite and offsite.

1. Onsite Optimization

Onsite optimization is an internal tool that must be kept in mind while creating or refining your company website.  This type of SEO is used to optimize the searchability of your website by creating content that is embedded with specific keywords. These keywords are the terms that search engines use to find your site and they indicate what your site is all about.

2.  Offsite Optimization

Conversely, offsite optimization is an external tool that encompasses the different strategies used outside of your website, specifically what sites you link to outside of your own. Using offsite optimization to link to relevant sites outside your own increases the chances of a high natural ranking.
