Video power

It is time to get with the program. Video is a powerful tool to get you more views. This is more than using Youtube to place a few mini movies. You can promote your site by using video and placing movies on your pages. It is important to use analytics to find out what effect they are having on traffic for you. The more videos you create the greater the chance that one will go viral and bring you a traffic in a massive wave.

It is important to get quality links, not spam ones. This is what search engines use. For example, links from forums typically are low in value due to many being spammy. Robots are getting smarter all the time with better algorithms that can track you. OK this is one reason you need to go to authority sites to get high quality links for your pages. Place more effort into this as the results will make you rank high in the search engines.

Cell phone SEO

OK, you want people to find you. Well, it is import to have many links going to your name. Also, have at least nine links going to John Doe Phone Number or ron roe phone so they can find you. It can take a while, but eventually with cell phone SEO your main site will move up. Please place your cellular telephone number for you business because that way if you get too many junk calls you can get another number and keep going. Search engine optimization is important for small business, but many forget to optimize their number and name.

Google rules the world

Step right up. I have a tale to tell that is a most interesting saga. First of page rank refers to Larry Page a Google cofounder, not the rank of your web page. Also, the Google algorithm rules the world of search engines. In fact, we depend on it every day ever more. This is because the internet is gaining. It is being integrated into our lives as we became an information based economy.

Here are some SEO tips from Matt Cutts. OK many are things we already use. However, you might learn something new. It is a good read to see how we are looked at by the big search engines.

Yahoo soon gone

Yahoo is out of the search game. Folks, it is sad to see this old veteran go. Yahoo was one of the few olskool search engines. Remember, Altavista, Alltheweb, etc... There use to be many players in this movie. It is now a death watch with the merger of microsoft and yahoo reminds me of K-mart and sears. Those two losers still cannot take on Walmart and win.

Selling product is hard work and then some. Instead of price per click (PPC) I prefer to think in terms of price performance optimization (PPO) and try to make my gain. There are many tricks to PPC optimization such as making your site relevant and putting the keywords in the body copy. What we try to do is craft the keywords to fit our selling page. Adwords gives me a lot of big ideas on how to compete on price.

SEO is important, but many clients are afraid to order over the internet due to scary sagas. They have heard stories of their number being pulled out of the ether and out to use. For that reason, you need an 800 number so customers can call you.

Valentine's day massacre

Saint Valentine's day massacre, the word can still chill us. It was 1929 and the US war on alcohol was not going too well, because it did power the gangs. They made a lot of money. Al capone went from nothing to super star and then some. However, prohibition would end and create many opportunities for enterprising young men. Folks our prohibition will end and create ops for SEO's like you.

Landing Page Optimization

LPO or Landing Page Optimization is important to the max. If your potential customers do not buy your product, then all the effort is gone. What you need to do is understand the three key questions your page must answer. This is important even before you build the page. I focus on creating value for the consumer. Adding pics can also make the page more exciting as well as movie. The idea is to inform as well as entertain your consumer.

SEO Factors

There are new trends in SEO. Social media is taking off now. Video is big as people are using the internet to watch movies. Sadly, many of these methods are new ways to make more money. What we report is that many things that use to work, no longer do so. This is not because it was a poor choice, but due to greater sophistication of the search engines. If you use methods that use to work in the 90's your results will be poor.

There are many ebooks that are long on promise. However, they are short on success. People are rarely able to wake up early and do the amount of work SEO requires. That said, I feel that most ecommerce sites can earn you money. Definitely SEO can bring you more than a regular job at a common wage.

Well, you need will some links to your pages.
