How Does SEO Work?

by Andrew Miller   |   Jul 02, 2009

Editor's Note: This is week 2 of Stephanie Chueh's internship blog. She posts weekly about her experiences learning search engine marketing.

How does search engine optimization work? The past few days, I’ve been learning a few of the fundamental principles of SEO, and I am really excited to start putting what I’ve learned into practice.

In the next few weeks, Andrew and I are planning to get me a domain name, so I can get some hands-on experience with SEO. I’m looking forward to doing some basic programming with HTML, finding good ways to get links, making sites very accessible to visitors, discovering the best ways to generate traffic to a site, and making a site rank first when it is searched. I want to learn all I can about this increasingly important field, and I am especially interested in finding out how SEO fits into a company’s overall marketing strategy.

Once I have completed training, I anticipate helping Andrew make your company even more visible.

Andrew co-founded Workshop Digital in 2015 and serves as the Director of Client Services. He oversees our client relationships and ensures our SEO and PPC teams have everything they need to provide amazing results. After growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta during the 1980s, he decided it was time for a change of scenery and moved north to attend The University of Richmond. Armed with dual degrees in Computer Science and Spanish, it made perfect sense to seek another course change and begin a career in advertising and marketing at The Martin Agency and later, CarMax, before venturing out on his own in 2007. Andrew collects hobbies and devotes his time to his family, training for triathlons, and trying to grow vegetables in an expanding backyard garden.
