What is organic SEO and how is it different?
Here is a very useful infographic for those who may be uncertain about the difference between organic and other forms of SEO. One can distinguish between organic and “manufactured” SEO links to your site. The meaning is already obvious – when a link or visit to your site is obtained naturally – and by this is meant through normal avenues like someone finding your posts interesting and informative – then this is considered to be an organic link or visit. Firstly, organic links are human in origin and not created by “robots” or other manufactured or devious means. Secondly they are safe and thirdly they are useful in that they would contain information that is useful and valuable. So, natural and useful content that drives visitors is essentially organic in nature – as opposed to manufactured and sometimes spammy sources.
