SERP as we have learned is an acronym for “Search Engine Rank Position” or “Search Engine Results Page”. This is what you have to do with your web page before submitting it to the search engine. Set everything up like we have discussed, before asking to be indexed by the search engines. Go over and over your webpage and make sure that you addressed all the elements that we have talked about. Make good use of the Yoast WordPress Plugin to determine your keyword density and its use. Everything should be as perfect as you can make it before the big day of asking to be indexed. Publishing and indexing are 2 different things, do not get them confused. Just because you publish a webpage does not mean that it is going to be indexed. We will be studying this more in depth in lesson 7 however we will now learn the steps that it takes to have a webpage indexed in the Google Search Engine.
