The internet is the largest market place on earth. It offers unparallel access to an international base of consumers – and referrers. However, the internet is also an extremely overcrowded place. With such an opportunity to make a business presentation to the world, many companies seek to take advantage of this unique chance for global exposure by creating a website. Yet simply having a website is not enough. A website alone will be lost in the crowd – a crowd of over 4 billion webpages indexed on the Google search engine alone. A website needs to be visible, and in a highly targeted manner, so that a company can connect specifically with potential customers. If any company is serious about generating sales within the largest marketplace on earth, investment is required in one form or other of internet marketing.
Probably the most desirable internet marketing options are Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Pay-Per-click (PPC) campaigns. According to BBC research, 70% of internet users will turn to a Google search engine to locate web sites covering any particular subject. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of ensuring that these internet users, who search for keywords and phrases directly associated with your business market, find your website ranked among the top search results. The process of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that creates visibility, and can clearly mark out a site from the crowds.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) involves the building highly targeted internet links to key site pages on your website. At the heart of this process is the building of an Independent Back-Linking Network (IBLN), an artificially created network of sites that imitates the wider link patterns of the wider internet. Dozens of websites and tens of thousands of pages can be involved in an IBLN, which sole aim is to promote a particular client's website (s). Because of the variability of the Search Engine industry it is impossible to make any estimates as to what positions may be absolutely achieved on these search engines. However, an IBLN takes into account the algorithms and patents owned by Search Engines, and that is able to account for future changes in the industry, and can create solid sustainable results. It's a laborious and time consuming process and also takes time to take effect. Add to that fact that even Google can take up to 8 weeks to locate any particular link, means that a properly conducted SEO campaign should be expected to take place over a six-month period, to ensure proper results. The primary aim of the SEO campaign would be to achieve goals agreed between ourselves and the client. The secondary aim would be to then exceed these results to ensure wider high rankings across Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
