What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Put simply, SEO is the ongoing process of making changes to a website to increase its visibility when people search for products, services, or terms related to the site. It includes making tweaks to page text, structure, metadata, and other information to help search engine indexers properly categorize content, as well as establishing connections and boosting the content's "authority" score to make it more likely to be placed highly in search results.


Why Does SEO Matter?

The better a page's visibility in search results, the more likely that page will garner attention and attract prospective students. Currently, approximately 40% of visitors to our website come via search engines. Some of those visitors have never heard of LeTourneau before. By maximizing our visibility via search, we improve the reach of the Christian Polytechnic University in attracting students, establishing thought leadership, and promoting the institution that we love.
