As it stands, search engine optimization has a strange reputation. Some understand and use it, some hate and fear it, and others think they understand it but underrate its importance. There's ethical and good SEO practices, and then there's unethical, horrible practices that give SEO a bad name both in the industry and in businesses that use it throughout the world.
As a search engine optimization company, Arora Designs' job is to optimize websites in order for internet surfers and searchers alike to find them on search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. At an ethical standpoint, true organic and ethical SEO emphasizes relevancy, helpfulness and information that turns an average website into a resource for people on the internet. In other words, you can be number one on the search engines - and that may mean a lot to many specialists - but if there is no relevant information for the person visiting that site, they'll feel as though there is nothing for them to see there, and move on. What good are top search engine results when people aren't finding what they're looking for?
Hidden text, keyword spamming, and "link sharing farm" participation are some of the most popular unethical practices used today. The relevancy is fake, and many times both the search engines - and the humans - can see right through it.
The key here is to attract the audience and demographic that was meant for the website you are trying to optimize. Relevancy is of utmost importance. As SEO specialists, we must optimize first and foremost for the humans; not the spiders or bots working for the search engines. A website must have honest, relevant information geared towards search engine compatibility in order to be truly optimized.
At Arora Designs we make it a point to make sure all website information is geared towards potential viewers and customers. Then, we translate that information into keywords, descriptions, titles, headers, images, links and body text in such a way as to be most compatible with the search engines. This way, our priorities are correct from the start. It's ethical, it's honest, and it's the most effective. Period.
