Algorithm is a computer science term for a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer.
In the context of search engines optimization (SEO), a search engine algorithm functions like a formula by which stored information is retrieved and ordered in meaningful ways from the index into the search engine results page (SERPs).
