What is Organic Search?

Organic search is the natural searching that your readers do in search engines. Your readers enter one or more search terms in Google, or another search engine and a list of search engine results are returned.

The search engine results page (SERP) typically contains a mix of organic and paid search results. Your goal is to rank at the top or close to the top of the SERP.
