Search engine optimization is the art and science of publishing information and marketing it in a manner that helps search engines understand your information is relevant to relevant search queries.

Wikipedia has its own definition.

I define SEO as the task of increasing your visibility in the search engines.  Your company, your brand, or even yourself has a visibility in the search engines.  This includes, primarily, your website, but other things effect visibility too.  For instance, social media profiles will increase that visibility.
