Most searches are on Google so we will be focusing on Google mainly in this series. Knowledge graphs will give an idea of the correct information, the people also ask will be for similar queries, and the top three organic results will be the preferred selection for location on Google.

Focusing on ranking, ensuring your content is clear and well organized for your users improves the likelihood that users will remain on your site rather than going back to look for a better answer for their result. This would be a part of on-page SEO where you have a keyword for what you are attempting to cover, alt and title tags as well as descriptions for your images, linking to similar articles on your site that may be useful.
