SEO certification

SEO certification refers to the education, information, practice or training that leads to an individual's certification, or skills assessment and knowledge, as it relates to search engine optimization and search engine marketing. Many SEO certifications are online courses or collection of webinars and online exams that you do at your own pace. Some courses are free while others range in price from $50 up to $7,500 to obtain the SEO certification.
