Before I created my first website, I never bothered to know what search engine optimization really means. It sounded so technical to me then.

Of course, this understanding is rather simplistic as I found out this year.
As an internet researcher, my only concern is to arrive at the right web sites giving the type of information or data I need. My only remaining problem is to judge whether the information returned by the google search pages are accurate or if the data come with integrity. For this reason, I normally would dig deep into the google search results up to 500th page if necessary to get to where I want.
