When was SEO invented? SEO – Search Engine Optimization has been
around for as long as search engines have been around. And the first search engine was not Google. It was actually Archie, which was invented
in 1990. But SEO as a profession, really did not start
until around 1994-1995 when Google came to prominence. Google has very high standards for which websites
they rank, that is why Google is one of the most popular search engines because they want
to do the right thing for their users. They only want to show the most relevant websites
on their search results pages. SEO as a profession really developed at the
time that Google came out.
