To dominate it is synonymous to secure better positions for your webpage and therefore, more visits and clients. The problem is that it is full of palabrejas rare and technicalities for that reason, there are preparation this dictionary of SEO where we explained of what each term in a language consists that everybody understands.

Dictionary SEO with the most common terms

Here the glossary of SEO with the words begins that you must know.

1. Algorithm

The algorithm is the rules that a finder must to choose in what order they appear the webpages when somebody makes a search.

Then, knowing it he is simpler to reach the best positions, no? In theory yes. The problem is that Google, for example, changes to its algorithm some 500 times to the year reason why is almost impossible to know how “thinks”.

2. Anchor text

This term of SEO we saw it in the post on the internal liaisons, but it is so important that you know it that matters to us to return to explain it. 😉

Translated as “text anchor”, one is the text that is used at the time of creating a connection to another content to which you want to direct your visits, and based on how it is text, they are possible to be classified of different ways:

  • Only of keyword.
  • Of URL.
  • Related to the subject.
  • And thus much more.

He is basic to obtain a strong SEO.

3. Backlinks

Backlinks is what all we know as I connect. In the world of the SEO they are indispensable, because they help to that the new content and sites reach faster higher positions in the finders.

In fact, and according to the theory, whatever more of these you have in your faster webpage and higher it will raise. Although clearly, this is only theory, our advice is that you always bet by the quality and not it amount.

4. Black hat SEO

You want that we summarize this concept to the maximum to you? It is to make traps.

When hat is spoken of black SEO is making reference to use the “legal emptinesses” that the algorithm of Google (or any other finder) must to surpass your competitors in which to positioning it talks about.

We could leave it to the ethics of each if to use it or but it were not because if the great G detects that you have used the “black hat”, at the most sends your deep site of its results.

5. Tail Long

One long tail is not more than one keyword to which more information is added to him, with the purpose of thus sharpening and to be able to position with greater facility.

We put an example to you so that it is clearly more.

It imagines that with your CMS you have created a store online where you sell monitors for computer. How many webpages you think that they exist in Internet that attack the keyword “monitor for PC”? When to write this post the results in Google are 118 million.

Nevertheless, for long tail “better monitor for PC” the number of results is less than 6 million…

You see in what consists? In the end one is to sharpen more to obtain than there is less competition and therefore, to emphasize with more facility.

6. Meta tags

They consist of a form to contribute to an extra of information to the finders without this pass by the visits, through labels HTML.

Of all of them they emphasize the following:

  • Description: it is the text that appears underneath the title when beams a search in Google. It does not have value at the time of positioning but to secure visits.
  • Keyword: a long time ago they served to indicate the keyword that you wanted to position. Now they are in disuse.
  • Title: one of the sites that look at the finders search keyword and therefore, to show the content in related searches.

All these you can use them in your WordPress thanks to Yoast.

7. Pagerank

One is the score that Google gives each webpage that indexes in a scale from the 1 to the 10.

Returning to the subject from backlinks, if a site with pagerank high connects to another one with smaller score, it transfers part to him of that reputation and help to that it positions better. For that reason they are so important for a strategy SEO.

A time ago the score was public that each page had, but now that information is hidden. Of all ways, every time it has less force in his algorithm so you do not have either to worry much for that reason.

But that does not mean that it is a bad idea to secure connections of sites with better pagerank than yours… It is clear that to help, they help. 😉

8. Robots.txt

On this term also we spoke a time ago. We can say that it consists of a file that you send to the finders so that when they accede to your site, they know where they can enter and where no.

Thus you avoid that they keep in its data base contained duplicate or other that does not interest to you that it indexes.

9. SEO in off page

The SEO in off page is everything what you can make to improve the positioning of your webpage without working in her of direct form.

For example, when joint parties an article in the social networks or you worry to choose good hosting so that the speed of load is highest possible.

10. SEO on page

They are all the actions that beams within your site to secure one better position in the finders, as for example:

If it is within your page, on is SEO page.

11. Sitemap

As it indicates its name in Spanish, it is a file that you send to the finders so that they have a map of your site thus and, to facilitate the indexing to them.

The interesting thing of this file is that they can include directions from your site of which the robots cannot accede (because there are no connections, only appear when sending a form, etc) and thus you make sure that they also keep them.

To Google it is sent through Web Tools Masters to him.
