The buzzword amongst any profitable web based marketer today is Search Engine Optimization or SEO for short. If you are new to the web-marketing world, this acronym may not mean much to you. However, if you want to be victorious in web based marketing, it is a vital technique to learn.
In order to be successful in SEO you must be part detective and part mind reader. The basic premise of this form of marketing is to consider what words someone using a search engine might enter in order to find information such as that on your site. By understanding this you will be able to include these words, or keywords as they are known in SEO, into the content of your website.
So all I need to do is make sure the key word is listed as many times as possible and my site will come up first in the search engine list … right? Actually, this technique, known as keyword stuffing will only serve to draw suspicion to your site. Today's search engines will scrutinize a site and compare it to others to ensure that the amount of times a keyword is used is similar to other sites. If it sees out of the site sees out of the ordinary, it runs the risk of being filtered as SPAM.
When it doubt, the best bet it to hire a writer with SEO skills. Not only will they provide a well-crafted message, but the well planned content will drive more potential customers to your site.
