The Definition:
It’s about KEYWORDS and LINKS, RELEVANCE and REPUTATION, VISITOR SATISFACTION and POPULARITY... being relevant enough for a query, and being trusted enough to rank for it, ranking for popular keywords, on merit, ORGANIC, popularity based on BACKLINKS to social media.

A site must be visually appealing, polished and professional. It's representing you, your company, your products and your services. Your website may be the first, and only, impression a potential customer receives of your company. So it must engage the customer by presenting what they are looking for. An attractive site is far more likely to generate a positive impression and keep visitors on your site once they arrive.

Along with appearance and style, your site must have substance and present relevance. Your audience is looking for information that will help them make a decision, so it should be informative and relevant...more information on elements?
