Introduction to SEO

Welcome to the first chapter of PAR HOUSE Agency’s SEO Academy. We begin our journey through the world of search engine optimization, commonly known as SEO (Search Engine Optimization). SEO isn’t just about the technical aspects of a website, it’s also a strategy for understanding how the Internet works, how people search it, and how we can tailor our site to appeal to them.

What is SEO?

SEO is the process of optimizing a website to achieve the highest possible position in search results. This includes both technical aspects of the site, such as loading speed, URL structure and usability on mobile devices, and content aspects, such as using the right keywords, creating valuable content and building links.

Why is SEO important?

In today’s digital world, most people use search engines to find information, products or services. SEO is crucial to your site’s visibility in these search engines. Pages that appear on the first page of search results usually receive significantly more clicks than those on subsequent pages. That’s why optimizing your site for search engines is key to increasing traffic and attracting new customers.

Basic elements of SEO

SEO can be divided into three main components:

  1. On-Page SEO: Optimizing elements on your site, such as content, titles, meta descriptions, URL structure and usability on mobile devices.
  2. Off-Page SEO: Activities outside of your website that affect its position in search results, such as link building, social media and content marketing.
  3. Technical SEO: Optimization of your site’s structure and code, such as page load speed, indexing and crawlability.


SEO is a key component of any online marketing strategy. By understanding what SEO is and why it’s important, we can better optimize our pages and content to attract more organic traffic. Remember that SEO is a long-term process, but the benefits it brings are worth the time and effort.
