By Vu Lan Dung HANOI - Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) played an important role in digital marketing and would experience an increase this year. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of putting businesses' products and services at the top of search engine results, and helping them to increase their conversion rate at a lower cost.
