Some can define SEO in 1 sentence

from Stuntdubl: (Content + structure) x exposure x time x links = increased traffic and success
Unique, readable content with targetted keywords in title tag and many incoming links

SEO is getting more and more common and the average webmaster likely has a basic understanding about how to optimize their site, but struggles to get better ranking. SEO It is like a secret that everybody knows, but only the best can execute.

Some experts micro-analyze the subject of SEO while others prefer a simpler method of brute force.
