SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization”.
It is the process of engaging customers to your website/web portal/ blog etc. either by organic or paid means. By using SEO, the search engine can rank you on the top; but it totally depends on you how appropriately you are using.
o New websites launch every day, but are every site at the top?

SEO is a kind of magic which you perform in your content to make your search result at the top. Now a days, SEO is very important. For example, if you have written an article on ‘Night Blindness’ and you want that, when people search for this content, your article should be at the top.
