10 Free SEO Tips To Improve Web Traffic

As we all know, getting more web traffic is a good thing if you want your business to grow and gain revenue. However, not everyone knows that some of the best ways to get more web traffic are free.

You should also be aware that you can submit to many directories at once using serveral services. Some try to make oyu pay every year and actually undo the lisitng for which you paid if you stop paying. I hate that. There are three or four master aggregators of business listings to which they all submit.

7 Reasons Your SEO Efforts Fail

Reasons Search Engine Optimization  Fails

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) firms sell snake oil. Unfortunately, that is how it looks to lots of us, customers of the SEO firm. These are all real issues that I've seen over many years.

Here are the 7 reasons your SEO spend is ineffective:

1.) Search Engines Rank Pages, Not Websites

Remember that Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines rank individual pages, not your website as a whole.

What role should SEO play in an overall PR strategy or campaign?

 

Traditionally, public relations is about crafting strategic messages that communicate exactly what the organization wants people to hear.  Today, more and more businesses are creating their own content in the form of blogs, articles, “Tweets,” and white papers.

This user-generated content, like traditional PR, improves communications, generates publicity, builds awareness, and increases rankings in search engines.
