Now More Than Ever...You Need To Optimize Your Site for Search Engines
As the economy begins to recover in certain parts of the world, more and more online marketers are looking for affordable ways to drive qualified traffic to their sites. That's why, now more than ever, you need to optimize your site for the search engines.
Have you heard the saying, "Short-term sacrifice for long-term gain"? It applies here. For just a little effort, you can ensure a practically endless supply of visitors to your site for years to come. And the benefits are unbeatable.
There is absolutely no cost for submitting to most of the major search engines like Google. That means you get exceptional exposure in front of people who are looking for what you have to offer. Anybody can afford free.
If you develop your site to focus on specific keyphrases that your customers would use when searching, you can drive extremely targeted traffic to your site. Use tools like Wordtracker (http://www.wordtracker.com) to find out which phrases are most often used to locate sites like yours.
Easy To Learn
Search engine optimization (despite what many so-called "gurus" will tell you) is relatively easy to learn. Simply hang out in a few search engine optimization (SEO) forums (http://www.highrankings.com/forum and http://www.ihelpyouservices.com/forum are two of the best) and ask questions.
Consistent Delivery of Visitors
People use search engines to find what they are looking for all the time, all day long. In fact, 85% of people online use a search engine when trying to locate a product, service, or information. That means your SEO'd site receives a constant stream of visitors 24/7.
Exposure On Other Sites
Many search engines now offer to provide their search results on other Web sites. If a site that subscribes to Google or MSN's search result service has a similar theme to your site, you could find your URL popping up all over the 'Net.
Overall, for the little bit of time it takes to optimize your site, search engine listings simply can't be ignored. Why continue to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars a month for paid advertising when you can have a horde of visitors delivered to your site free? Before you spend another dime on paid ads, take a good, hard look at search engine optimization.

You Have More Web Sites Than You Think You Have: The Importance of Deep Submission
If I ask you how many web sites do you have? You may say "One, yes it is www.mycompany.com " or "two" in case you have a second organization or company. When I first began promoting my web sites I was, like most people, only thinking in terms of one web address, the url of my main page. And I thought that this main page was a difficult one to promote because it was the index page of a magazine that covered a wide variety of fields (environment, arts, science, politics, spirituality, etc). How could I optimize a page for so many keywords, which market could I focus on?
Some very early users of the Internet - not the worldwide web as we know it today - but the Internet from the early 1980s, will have heard of, and likely used, Usenet. This was the collective name applied to text-based electronic bulletin boards that were used to communicate in the days before the web and email existed, and that are still in use today. The Usenet posts were first collected and organized for worldwide web use in 1995, by a company called Deja News. In 2001, Google bought Deja News and applied their considerable search expertise to Usenet posts. The result is Google Groups.

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is in the choice of keywords for a new site, specifically secondary keywords.. These are the words or phrases that you use when writing your content to help theme the page so that the search engines know what your page is about. These secondary keywords also help to bring in more traffic, because they add more depth to your page, meaning that your page is found for a lot more phrases than just the primary phrase you page is built around.
