SEO – MDN Web Docs Glossary: Definitions of Web-related terms

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the process of making a website more visible in search results, also termed improving search rankings.

Search engines crawl the web, following links from page to page, and index the content found. When you search, the search engine displays the indexed content. Crawlers follow rules. If you follow those rules closely when doing SEO for a website, you give the site the best chances of showing up among the first results, increasing traffic and possibly revenue (for ecommerce and ads).

Search engines give some guidelines for SEO, but big search engines keep result ranking as a trade secret. SEO combines official search engine guidelines, empirical knowledge, and theoretical knowledge from science papers or patents.

SEO methods fall into three broad classes:

technical
Tag the content using semantic HTML. When exploring the website, crawlers should only find the content you want indexed.
copywriting
Write content using

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) – Encyclopedia – Business Terms

Computer-aided design (CAD) involves creating computer models defined by geometrical parameters. These models typically appear on a computer monitor as a three-dimensional representation of a part or a system of parts, which can be readily altered by changing relevant parameters. CAD systems enable designers to view objects under a wide variety of representations and to test these objects by simulating real-world conditions.

Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) uses geometrical design data to control automated machinery. CAM systems are associated with computer numerical control (CNC) or direct numerical control (DNC) systems. These systems differ from older forms of numerical control (NC) in that geometrical data are encoded mechanically. Since both CAD and CAM use computer-based methods for encoding geometrical data, it is possible for the processes of design and manufacture to be highly integrated. Computer-aided design and manufacturing systems are commonly referred to as CAD/CAM.

Programming Basics for Beginners – Common Terms, Practices and Principles

Before You Start To Code

When you first set out to learn the science and art of computer programming, there is a huge amount to learn and it can sometimes seem a little bit overwhelming. You are effectively learning a whole new language to write your code in, at the same time as learning a wide range of new concepts, principles, working practices, technical terminology, software tools and more. That’s quite a lot to take in all at the same time.

Because of this I think that it is well worth taking the time to learn some programming basics before you even start learning the ins and outs of a programming language and writing your first line of code. These basics include common terminology, working practices, and software tools.

The purpose of this article is to introduce you to some of these programming basics, which you are likely to come
