What is Page Rank and is it important?
No one is certain as to the ‘exact’ science of how page rank works, but it’s understood that several elements such as age, the number of backlinks, and the amount of content are used to plan it. Years ago, Page Rank was a way for Google to determine a web page’s search rankings, but now it is just one of 200 ranking factors Google uses to determine a page’s popularity. While still relevant, it is no longer the driving force for determining rank.

How long does it normally take to see SEO Results?
When a browser conducts a search, it finds both organic results and paid results (those which are highlighted and usually placed on the top or right-hand side of the page). While Paid Advertising is a great way to get you in front of people quickly, it is the quest of every business to achieve first-page, organic-SEO results.

What is a robot.txt file?
Robots.txt files on a website will function as a request that specified robots ignore specified files or directories in their search. This might be, for example, out of a preference for privacy from search engine results, or the belief that the content of the selected directories might mislead or irrelevant to the categorization of the site, or out of a desire that an application only operates on certain data.
