What is the process of SEO?
Google would definitely not reveal the algorithms of SEO, but one thing is for sure, Google or any search engine crawls and scan through different websites to understand what the website is all about. The main purpose of crawling and scanning is to show more relevant results to a buyer. Also, part of SEO is the web design and ease of use, and user-friendliness of a website.
Therefore, SEO, at the end of the day is not about your website, but rather, it’s about the delivery of results to users.
