Help to rank better in search

Not only does Google provide help to rank better in search, but they do it for free. Google Webmasters tells you how.

Interestingly enough, Microsoft Bing Webmaster Tools also gives free advice. It is much the same advice.

What you do for one is what you do for the other. And both tell you for free.

There are tools available to help you manage search engine optimization. If you are in the WordPress ecosystem, Yoast SEO has free and paid versions of their product, along with teaching you how to improve your search engine optimization.

How much more transparent can anyone be in how to rank well in search results?

Someone or a company trying to compete needs to spend resources on marketing though. It never has come for free.
