5 Ways To Get Your Business Noticed Online

If you have a business and are looking to create a strong online presence, here are 5 things that you can do:

1) Have a GOOD?Website

You may think this is super obvious to most people, but it isn?t. The number of companies that I come across that don?t have a website is staggering.

Now, notice that I said GOOD website. Your website needs to be nice and clean, fast, and full of relevant information.

Do yourself a favor and hire a designer to make your website. Don’t trust those “free” themes or site makers. They will severely limit what you can do, among other things.

seo basics including the most important things in search engine optimization

Lets start with the basics. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization

Even though ?Optimization? may sound super complicated, it really isn?t. It can be time consuming if you do it the right way, but once it?s done, it?s done.

If you can get your site to the top of search engines for the keyword you want, you can pretty much guarantee lots of traffic every day.

There?s a keyword tool that I?ve been using every day in my SEO work recently, and that tool is called Keyword Researcher Pro. I truly believe it’s one of the best seo tools out there.

Up till recently, I was using tools like Market Samurai and Long Tail Pro, but they both fell short in more ways than one and it wasn?t exactly what I needed. I still use Market Samurai to research the competitiveness of a keyword, but I found it to be painfully slow when researching the keywords itself.

You submit it and get the awesome “Your ad has been approved” message. You think, “that’s cool”, and then go to bed. When you wake up ready to start the next day, you check your email and see “Your ad wasn’t approved – please edit and resubmit your ad”. You think “WTH Facebook?”

Enter Facebook’s 20 percent rule, where they say?your image can’t contain more than 20% text. The issue is that they use this “grid” system to automatically check images, so even though you may have less than 2o% text, you may still get dinged.
