    What does SEO mean?

    I thought it meant search engine optimization - but the context "SEO" was used in seemed odd. It was simply, "Do you write for SEO?". Before I respond to the email, I just want to make sure I've got it Write - I mean Right! smile

    Search engine optimization is used to make your articles or hubs more likely to rank higher in the searches people use. For example, if you use popularly searched terms in your hubs' title and section headings, you are more likely to pop up on a search. In essense, you would be using SEO on your hubs.

    Phtech has said it well and succinctly.   What has been happening though, over the years, is that those who design the way those search engines search have become more and more sophisticated in their programming.  Key words and phrases that 'grab' the search engines' attention have to be just right:  too many and it's thumbs down. Not enough and it's also thumbs down.  And, of course, those that are in charge of this search engine programming keep it very secret as to just what to do exactly to succeed.

    The advice I've been given of late is just write and write well.  Content is most important.  Pick out your key words and phrases that are likely to grab but let them just fall naturally into your writing. Don't deliberately put them in for effect.  Good writing on popular topics is generally the best way to go.

    Another version of SEO is Senior Executive Officer (Civil Service and the like), but I don't think the context is right for your purposes.

    Some Evil Omen mostly! How many times did you get the correct and truly informative link in the fist page of listing? Mostly no, no? That's why I say S(ome) E(vil) O(men)!

    You can simply reply the sender and ask the definition of SEO for him/her. It is a bit difficult to judge what SEO stands for in that message.
