SEO - Search Engine Optimization
SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” In simple terms, it means the process of improving your site to increase its visibility when people search for products or services related to your business in Google, Bing, and other search engines. The better visibility your pages have in search results, the more likely you are to garner attention and attract prospective and existing customers to your business.
OKR - Objectives & Key Results
OKRs stand for objectives and key results, a goal-setting methodology that can help your team set and track measurable goals. Originally pioneered by John Doerr, this framework pairs the objectives you want to achieve with the key results you’ll use to measure progress—so your goals are tied to your team’s day-to-day work.
