SEO by 10Web
You have designed your website, filled your pages with content, and have taken it live. Now in order for Search Engine Optimization to start working, search engines first need to discover your website. This process starts with Crawling. Robots are sent to search the internet for new and relevant content/code, which they then Index, and then Rank according to how relevant your content is to the search query.
