SERP’s: Search Engine Results Pages. The pages that search engines display, when a search query is entered into the search box.
Keywords: Your website and each page on your website should be optimized for keywords. These keywords will be in reference to what someone might search for online. Keywords can be determined through “keyword research”.
PPC: Pay Per Click. Refers to sponsored ads. You pay every time someone clicks on your ad. These campaigns can be very costly if not run effectively.

Meta Title: The Information displayed at the top of your web browser and usually the main title for SERP descriptions.
