When dinosaurs roam the web (50s-80s)
Little is known about the unusual period that took place from 1950 to the late 1980s. Some discoveries point to the existence of a pre-internet network called ARPANET. “Network historians” refer to deep computer networks such as Telenet, NPL, and Cyclades.
No SEO because no search engine optimized for.
It was a dark time.
The Stone Age of SEO (early 90s-mid 90s)
If there is a Stone Age, then it is likely that one excavated a stone from the ground first and then transformed it into a tool used as a human tool. The man was Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee, creator of the World Wide Web (WWW).
On August 6, 1991, the world’s first website was launched, operating on a CERN computer.
Prior to that, an original search engine called Archie was developed. Since there is no WWW, Archie lists a specific FTP (File Transfer Protocol) folder to locate and transfer specific files from one computer system to another. Due to its high performance, no site content is available. The only list is.
The following year another Veronica search engine appeared. Veronica is responsible for updating the database of the name of each menu item on the Gopher server. Gopher, as we know it today, was the first to go for the TCP / IP protocol using the Wide Web, where HTTP was not the most common protocol.
There is also another search engine called Jughead, which interacts a lot with Veronica, in addition to Jughead browsing the server at the same time. In those days, there was also Wanderer, the first web crawler who could measure WWW.
If Archie is a real web browser, Aliweb is considered the first web search engine. Aliweb appeared in 1993. It allows users to submit to each other who wants to be registered. In addition, they can write custom descriptions for Aliweb to request. This dynamic ability was the first SEO possible 25 years ago, it helps webmasters interpret keywords that lead to users and each other. Anyway, not many of them keep their site, and Aliweb is underground.
In the same year, JumpStation started, behaving and being like today’s web browser. JumpStation uses the title page and title to list the web pages found using simple line search, but it does not provide any rankings.
In any modern search engine, it is difficult to find anything if a user has entered the name exactly what they are looking for.
If you can think so, the only possible SEO strategy in the history of SEO is the meta description of Aliweb.
Bronze Age of SEO (mid-90s-90s)
The time was 1994. Produced “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web”.
What makes Yahoo different! By everyone else, Yahoo! is the first search engine that does not index other web page indexes in the searchable index, but rather to systematically register the subscription. This changed everything in the search engine world.
Yahoo! Free information is added to the site, but they also apply to add business sites for money. Over the next few years, Yahoo’s presence was not limited to “Yahoo!” search ‘. He also built many different products and created various services such as’ Yahoo! Yahoo! Mail! News ‘and’ Yahoo! Finance ‘.
Yahoo is a major wrestler! It was AltaVista at the time.
AltaVista found the most expensive jewelry system of the time and entered the Bronze era. Like a mixture of tin, arsenic and copper to make copper, AltaVista combines a wide range of innovative materials: it provides unlimited bandwidth and allows for natural language queries. It maintains an “Add URL” page that allows webmasters to make sure their site’s main page is indexed faster than ever; a comprehensive and accessible search list by Scooter. AltaVista is one of the top web sites, offering new features and daily search advice.
Our SEO story dates back to 1996. Two Stanford students work on Backrub, the first search engine using backlinks. This will have a huge impact on SEO because now, the trust of a website will come from the number of people linking to it and the trust of the website being linked to. Any name related to the website will be considered as a vote of confidence in the aforementioned website.
In the same year, AskJeeves, also known as Ask.com today, entered the search engine space. The primary idea behind Ask Jeeves is to provide users with answers to their questions through daily research, creative language, and traditional word search. In addition, it was developed using another developer: a link system by popularity. AskJeeves also manages cluster design through sites based on the popularity of certain topics.
In 1997, the Excite search engine was developed and became the first search engine to offer only the crawler-based list.
Remember the Backrub we mentioned earlier? It is now called Google. It is not Google that we all know today, as Google is working hard to stay in the competition. But Google has an idea: sell search terms. This move has had a huge impact on the search engine business. A new time is coming.
SEO Time (Early 00’s – Mid 00’s)
Just like in the real Middle Ages, there is war. Our SEO Middle Ages, and everything that comes before them, is digital violence. The search engine optimization battle has begun.
The search engine is all around even in the b2b marketplace.
Massive algorithm development takes months to complete by only enforcing unsolicited rules by webmasters, also known as black hat SEO.
Illegal and spam (many of them) occur in many parts of the internet. This type is and is known as a waste index. Spamdexing is the process of trying and managing the understanding of a search engine optimization script so that a web page gets a better ranking on a search engine.
SEO conversion (mid-00s-late-00s)
We are logged in to Web 2.0 which most of the companies embraced including Tradekey.com.
A new form of information exchange has emerged that has changed the internet experience as we know it. Websites are no longer straightforward and information does not reach the same way, “site to the reader”.
Internet users gained fast internet speed, and websites had a huge increase in interaction: users could be creative now. Many new sites, such as Wikipedia, YouTube, Myspace, and Blogger, quickly became popular and introduced new ideas for content submitted by users.
In 2007, Google changed the search engine results page (SERP). Until then, the Google search results page listed only 10 blue links. From Universal Search, Google search results list videos, images, maps, and other ads above, to the right and in the middle of organic search results.
