Search Engine Glossary

Search terminology has quickly become its own language, full of new concepts and often-puzzling acronyms. The Search Agency has designed the following Search Glossary to help you understand unfamiliar search terminology, some of which is specific only to The Search Agency. Clicking on a hyperlinked term will lead you to the term's industry definition.


As search engine terms may change and multiply over time, the dictionary below is by no means authoritative. The Search Agency welcomes your suggestions for additions or corrections, feel free to email us with your suggestions.
