The way search engines index web pages and files are transforming and becoming more realistic and brand oriented. If we talk about Google, it has been emphasizing on the expertise and trust ability of the brand. The metrics that identifies a website or web page and decides its ranking on the search result page have become more brand-centric and, therefore, the current scenario calls for online brand building. Also known as online authority building, it requires efforts to be put in on the website and also from it. A strong online presence of the brand guarantees better visibility of the website on the search result pages. Online branding is not much different from SEO and many of its advanced features blend seamlessly with processes of branding provided, they are implemented in the right way.
Search engine optimization is the technique through which a web page is made to rank higher in the search engine result page. There are various ways in which SEO can be carried out, but it has been broadly categorized into two methods- Organic and PPC (Pay per Click). Optimization which naturally places a webpage on the search result pages is called Organic SEO. Generally, this type of SEO includes analysis and use of keywords in the URL and Meta tags in the HTML code, back linking and building of link which promotes the link popularity submission of contents for the internet readers. Organic SEO is also called unpaid SEO as it does not require any amount to be paid as long as you are doing it on your own. SEO can be viewed as an internet marketing strategy as it studies how the search engines work and plans the methods accordingly.

It will all depend on the quality of the content and how you present it.
Optimize the website for semantic search:
Gone are the days when using generic keywords and terms would land your web page on the top of search result pages. The search engines have made the searches more humane and made it capable of sense the intent and the context of the search, thereby making the process of optimization tougher.

Templates are the blueprint of the HTML and CSS codes. With template optimization, there is no need to optimize every webpage for Meta description, image name, etc. Template optimization is also important for making the web page responsive.
Quality of the content:
Unless the content is good, automation and template building is useless. Search engine crawler programmers look for unique contents and link building, hence it is recommended that the contents should be written afresh as the web is full of people who copy other’s content. The search engine programs prefer those contents which are unique, of good quality and relevant.
