      How Do I Use SEO To Help My Online Business?

      Hi everyone! I've just joined this forum so apologies if this has been covered before. Anyway, I've been spending a lot of time researching information about how to build my online business. One thing that has me really confused is the SEO part and how to optimize my website. I guess I don't really understand how it will help my business (I'm not very internet savvy LOL). I've spoken to some people who say I should invest in SEO software or an SEO company. Is this a good idea? How exactly will this help me? Thanks in advance everyone.

      Content is king. Fresh content is queen.

      2. Find ways to get other sites to link to yours (pay, exchange link for link, or exchange your content for free links)

      Search Engine Optimization [SEO] is what businesses use to help bring traffic to their website. Keywords are the key to this. If people who are looking for your TYPE of business don't know exactly OF your business, they will typically use google to find what they're looking for. The words they type into the search bar are called keywords. This is about as far as my knowlege on this goes. Sorry.I hope this much helps.

      SEO is very important for your website for you to get a lot of visitors. If you have lots of visitors then some of them might buy things in your website. Doing SEO is not easy but there are many tips in the internet on how you can do it all by yourself.

      For me, the best method for having good SEO is by writing an article about your product or services.

      SEO is very important for your business. Here's why - research shows that almost no one goes beyond the first two results pages for a search on a search engine. If your web site isn't showing up in the first two pages of results, chances are that you're just not going to get noticed.

      Article marketing is a very important type of SEO, but there are others:

      1. Blogging
      2. Page optimization (tags, image titles, etc.)
      3. Local optimization (showing up in the "Google maps" part of the results, for instance)
      4. Social bookmarking
      5. Social media like Facebook and Twitter

      You can do all of these yourself - it's all on the net - or you can hire companies to do it for you. It's not cheap, but neither is any other type of advertising. (You have to pay to get in the Yellow Pages, right?)
