SEO is an abbreviation of ‘Search Engine Optimization’. The ongoing optimization of your site and managing your presence online is what helps you organically rank higher in search engines such as Google and Bing.
Everyone wants to be at the top of search results, but Search Engines have ever-changing processes called ‘algorithms’ that decide what websites are relevant and helpful to display when a user searches for a particular keyword.
If you are not carrying out any form of SEO, it is likely you are not where you need or want to be as far as search results.

SEO improves your organic ranking in Search Engines which leads to more traffic to your website. Organic ranking is your websites natural or 'free' ranking. Your ultimate long-term goal will be to have the best natural ranking in Search Engines as you can.
Your organic ranking is described as 'free' compared to paying to advertise at the top on Search Engines via PPC (Pay-per-Click), which is becoming more and more costly and competitive.
However, natural organic listings in Search Engines doesn't happen overnight and is a long-term goal. It doesn't cost anything to have good natural ranking in a Search Engine, but it will cost you an investment of time, money or perhaps both into working the traffic flow to your site to get you those better natural rankings.
Overall, long-term SEO yields better and more cost-effective results than paying for Pay-per-Click (PPC) advertising, but it is a long-term goal and most business use a mixture of both of these methods in their digital marketing plan.
