Umbraco content management system

Umbraco CMS

Umbraco is a content management system, whereby website owners or administrators can edit a site's content without the need of advanced technical know how.

Courtesy of Umbraco.com... " Umbraco is a fully-featured open source content management system with the flexibility to run anything from small campaign or brochure sites right through to complex applications for Fortune 500's and some of the largest media sites in the world. With simple and customisable editing and content creation tools, it's easy to manage and maintain your website exactly how you want it. Umbraco doesn't dictate how you should work - that should be up to you, not your content management system. Editors have as little or as much freedom as they need. And if you don't like the changes you've made? Simply rollback to a previous version. "

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the search results, these search results are called 'organic' searches.

However it has been shown that a growing number of users are now savvy with search engine websites such as google, and will dig deeper into the search results to find exactly what they were looking for. An example of this is a large company targetting a hardly used niche or key phrase and as such appearing in the first 3 results, however the product or service in question that has been searched turns out to be not supplied or provided at all by that company, and so the user will progress through the next few pages of the search results for a more accurate results, which would be a smaller company who's primary and possibly only product or service is the one searched for. As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted
