Blogging – Terminology -What is SEO, HTTPS and GDPR

Introduction

This post is a non-biased post,  created as a part of my research in an attempt to answer my own questions about should I go self-hosted or not.  I am NOT an ExPERT and you must do your own research if you want to make money or run a business.  This blog post is basic research.  I will most likely stay a worpress.com user for some time because at present I have no business ambitions.

Terminology

WHAT IS SEO?

Basically, SEO means search engine optimisation.  It is how Google rank your posts.  It is what impacts the results that come on page one of a google search or any search engine. Basically, it is what drives people to your website.  Basically, you have to get your key words right, your post has to be useful, and people have to click and read your post and all this helps rank your post, and helps get better ranked in SEO.

 

 

 

What is HTTPS?

If you ever go on a website that starts with HTTP and no ‘s‘ that site is NOT Secure meaning your data can be hacked, stolen, etc.   BTW wordpress.com handles that for you without you having to worry about that.

What is GDPR?

The reason I am including GDPR in this post is that it is very important to understand that GDPR  when you plan to do anything on the internet.   GDPR – was released on 25th May 2018.  Here are a few links on GDPR

Conclusion

Do your own research on this, this a basic post to help me figure it out.  I am no expert and I don’t claim to be any clearer in what I should do.

Thanks for reading.  This post was created  7th Oct 2018, it is not meant to be an expert advise post, it is a basic research post of someone who is still a bit clueless.  But, the videos shared are helpful I know for sure.

If you have more experience than I please share it in the comments for other wordpress.com users to learn from.  There are a lot of us that are confused.
