Organic search is a method for entering one or a plurality of search items in a single data string into a search engine. Organic search results are listings on search engine results pages that appear because of their relevance to the search terms, as opposed to their being advertisements. In contrast, non-organic search results may include pay per click advertising.
The Google, Yahoo!, and Bing search engines insert advertising on their search results pages. The ads are designed to look similar to the search results, though different enough for readers to distinguish between ads and actual results. This is done with various differences in background, text, link colors, and/or placement on the page. However, the appearance of ads on all major search engines is so similar to genuine search results that a majority of search engine users cannot effectively distinguish between the two.
Because so few ordinary users (38% according to Pew Research Center) realized that many of the highest placed "results" on search engine results pages (SERPs) were ads, the search engine optimization industry began to distinguish between ads and natural results. The perspective among general users was that all results were, in fact, "results." So the qualifier "organic" was invented to distinguish real search results from ads.
The term was first used by Internet theorist John Kilroy in a 2004 article on paid search marketing. Because the distinction is important (and because the word "organic" has many metaphorical uses) the term is now in widespread use within the search engine optimization and web marketing industry. As of July 2009, "organic search" is now common currency outside the specialist web marketing industry, even used frequently by Google (throughout the Google Analytics site, for instance).
Google claims their users click (organic) search results more often than ads, essentially rebutting the research cited above. A 2012 Google study found that 81% of ad impressions and 66% of ad clicks happen when there is no associated organic search result on the first page. Research has shown that searchers may have a bias against ads, unless the ads are relevant to the searcher's need or intent 
The same report and others going back to 1997 by Pew show that users avoid clicking "results" they know to be ads.
Incidentally, according to a June 2013 study by Chitika, 9 out of 10 searchers don't go beyond Google's first page of organic search results, a claim often cited by the search engine optimization (SEO) industry to justify optimizing websites for organic search. Organic SEO describes the use of certain strategies or tools to elevate a website's content in the "free" search results.
Organic SEO refers to the method that all the procedures for search engine optimization are followed by the proper method of taking position on the search result
Tiny pieces of space rock called micrometeorites are everywhere on Earth. In Search of Stardust shows you how to find them!
The solar system is a dusty place. Every day approximately 100 metric tons of cosmic dust collides with Earth, mainly in the form of micrometeorites. Most of these mineral particles (iron, nickel, etc.) are smaller than grains of sand, and they are falling down on us all the time and all over the globe. Still, little is known about these exotic extraterrestrials.
In Search of Stardust is the first comprehensive popular science book about micrometeorites. It's also a photo documentary comprising more than 1,500 previously unpublished images: the first atlas of micrometeorites, hundreds of which are depicted here in high-resolution color microscopic photography and in scanning electron microscope imagery.
Author Jon Larsen shows readers how and where to look for micrometeorites, explains the history of micrometeoritics, and offers chapters about micrometeorite formation, classification, and analysis. Thanks to Larsen's work, for the first time it is now possible for anyone to find these amazing tiny stones from space.
For more than a century it was believed these incredible space objects could be found only in pristine, unsullied environs like Antarctica and ocean floors. Larsen became the first to break the code and find micrometeorites in populated areas -- in fact, they can be found in the nearest rain gutter. In the book Larsen explains how anyone with a bit of inexpensive equipment can find their own micrometeorites.
It was recently discovered that King Tut's dagger was forged from a chunk of a meteorite. What else is made of extraterrestrial rock? Join the hunt!

Iâd seen enough to know that organic traffic was real, but it still sounded too good to be true.
I didnât really understand SEO, but I knew it meant getting traffic from Google. Traffic thatâs free, really doesnât have limits - and seems to work forever.
The same traffic that made Online Stars like Pat Flynn and Ramit Sethi an overnight success. If they could do it, I figured I could too - I just didnât know where to start.
I didnât know a thing about code , and I didnât even know what Wordpress was. To be honest, I still wasnât fully sure what SEO meant...I was looking for it in the paid advertising section.
So I did what I knew how to do, I Googled it and got to work. I figured itâd be like the normal âGoogle and Goâ - but this was a little more intense.
This required a lot more research and testing - disqualifying old techniques and filtering the necessary information from new techniques.The information was there , but it never got me where I wanted to be...
So I had to learn by trial and error, a.k.a more tools and a lot more money. And whether I liked it or not, it also meant copying the bigger companies - hoping for similar results.
It made sense, but it didnât work.
So I took a different route. A route that focused on results.
Also a route that focused on underlying logic, not technicalities .Thatâs allowed me to do a lot of different things, and for the most part - they keep getting results .Results that started in month 2, when I first reached page 3.
Not quite where you want to be, but for that time frame - it was a confidence booster. One that launched me into the next stage...
The front page . Thatâs an amazing feeling by itself, but when you count the days between your first blog and current ranking, then realize it happened in just 83 days - thatâs an unexplainable feeling. And after months of bringing everything together, Iâve finally completed the proven method that created this feeling.
The ebook designed for online entrepreneurs that want:
And itâs all just one-click away , at a (limited time only) one-time price of $9.95. I think thatâs lower than your monthly Netflix subscription.
This is the exactly what I was looking for on my journey to learning SEO, and trust me - 1 day of this is better than 12 months of Netflix. Thatâs the reason why I made this proven method and want to share it with you, but it doesnât even stop there . Thanks to my design team who made the new release special - youâll also get access to our upcoming bonus section
This alone is worth more than $9.95 . I'd lock in your price now - it's just one click away...
