Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Local Search & Traffic Building

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is not as complicated as the word – but it is time consuming. The good thing about SEO and traffic building efforts is they last (as opposed to paid advertising). SEO is the process of achieving a higher “rank” in search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing for targeted keywords. This increases the volume and quality of traffic to your web site for targeted keywords. SEO considers how search algorithms work and what keywords people search for. Strategies for SEO include on page optimization, site structure optimization, key word research, developing unique content, internet copywriting, search engine submissions, backlinking (directory submissions, article marketing, blog postings, commenting, social media bookmarking, free ad postings) and inbound linking strategies.
