I hate diplaying my ignorance on some issues. I have just started learning about getting found online. All sites I have ever made were for personal use but now starting to be professional/commercial. Learning about Page Rankings and being found by Search Engines has me baffled. I have learned so much so far but still know I have a long way to go.

Questions, just a few for now :) --- I keep hearing about SEO. What is it? How does it affect you site? How do you raise your PR? In a post a while ago docdanger47 talked about raising his PR by including internal links. Is this a common practice, does it break any "rules," are the SE bots tricked by this? I though I had learned in here that the best way to make yourself appear at the top of the returns list was to have links to you from other popular sites.

Thanks as always.

kiwanji, here's kind of a guided tour [webmasterworld.com] that'll help you find your way around. There are also links to some discussions that cover the basics.
