SEO is achieved through the process of Crawling, Indexing and Ranking.

To explain further, first Google (the search engine mentioned throughout this article) sends out spiders or bots that will crawl into websites or blog and capture the content and keywords.

Thereafter, these contents and keywords from a website are sent to the Google server and are stored (indexed) based on whether the content of the website are of high quality.  This is called Indexing.

Lastly, indexed websites are then ranked based on a number of factors which include Language, user location and user experience. This  is called Ranking. 

Hence, whenever you type a query on Google and you get a number of websites, the websites would have gone through the processes explained above and the first website is the one Google has the best answer to your search and if you are not satisfied, you can click on the next website and in that order, The truth therefore remains that to get ranked No 1 on Google for free, your must produce high quality content or products/services for the Google search engine and with good  experience for the users.
