What is Search Engine Optimization?

I searche many sites to get the best answer for this question.
can anyone elaborate about this?

I also one site which is giving informaiton about SEO ,
My Webpage

In this i have written the following things about SEO
Search engine optimization (SEO) is a set of methods aimed at improving the ranking of a website in search engine listings, and could be considered a subset of search engine marketing.

The term SEO (Search Engine Optimizers) also refers to an industry of consultants who carry out optimization projects on behalf of clients' sites.
Can anyone please tell me whether its correct or not.

Yes there is no problem in defining them as you have done the defined it.

I would frame it as follows

SEO is a process of arranging a site's content (such as headings, titles and subtitles) as well as off page factor's (such as backlinks) to obtain high rankings in search engines as well as choosing the proper keywords (such as content) for the page.

Refer Search Engine optimization for more details of what SEO is all about.
