What is SEO?
Search engine optimization or SEO is the art and science of "organically" improving the ranking of a website in search engine results. Organic optimization is the key to working within the guidelines of the major search engines to ensure your website adheres to the rules of the latest search engine algorithms. While no one knows exactly what the algorithm looks for, from experience we know what is most effective and what not to do.
You may have been approached by SEO experts guaranteeing a page 1 result, but this claim is just not possible or everyone would be on page 1. Generally they employ "black hat" techniques such as irrelevant backlinks and posting press releases on directory websites that can sometimes move your rankings temporarily, but it is not sustainable. This is especially true since the last two Google algorithm updates in 2012 code named Panda and Penguin

3. Ubertor On-Going Website Search Engine Ranking Improvement
If you have an Ubertor website then the best search engine optimization tool you have for SEO is your blog. It is like a magnet for search engines.
Google is in the business of providing the best search engine results on page one; any less and people would stop using Google and fewer people would see their paid advertising. What constitutes a good result? Through past experience we know Google likes to see dynamic, changing websites with prolific use of keywords. A blog post every month about the local school is not going to qualify your website as the "go to" website.
What you need is a sustained, targeted approach. The solution?
