SEO Search Engine Optimization

Course Duration: 16 hours

Tuition: $500 USD

Definition: Search Engine Optimization (SEO): is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural,” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”), search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users and in turn, the more business. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, [1] news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

Overview: Design Engine is known for its courses that do not follow a book, but follow a regimen that purposely makes you learn by DOING instead of listening and reading. Like the rest of our courses we have found that SEO is the best when you’re actually DOING it and watching your ranks build day-by-day. We will teach you everything from simple HTML and CSS to competitor keyword analysis and monetizing your own website. Want to see how many customers left your site at the shopping cart? We can probably tell you why.

The internet has become the place where we spend the majority of our work and free time. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has become one of the key components for a successful business. At Design Engine, we started learning about SEO in the 1990s and have been constantly implementing it into our business. Consider this class either to get you started on SEO or to target specifics in your project. We help your SEO in this class, together!
