In business, success is all about location, location, location. Well it’s that way on the internet too. Except your location is getting found in the search engines. That’s no easy feat with millions of web sites being added every single day.
You’ve probably heard about how you should optimize your website for the search engines (search engine optimization or SEO) — which is a bit of a misnomer. You should optimize your website so your visitors will come and buy your stuff. But to get those visitors, you have to get found in the search engines. And that’s where SEO comes in.
If you’re like most small business owners, you pretty much do it all yourself. So if you’ve been looking for SEO training, here’s your answer. Cricket Bailey of GNC Web Creations offers a free SEO Training Class. Cricket will teach you the basics of SEO, along with many valuable internet marketing strategies, to increase online business profitability and visibility in the search engines. She provides a structured SEO training class through her private Yahoo group: SEO Techniques. The online class is 100% free and is email based and you can work at your own pace.
The SEO Training class is restricted to members who are 100% serious about learning to increase the traffic to their website. She doesn’t allow anyone to just pop in to the class and slide along without learning the lessons. And she doesn’t allow professional SEO consultants to take the class either. Her SEO Training is for people like you and me who want the basic “know how” to make our businesses successful on the internet.
My personal experience:
I’m always looking for ways to improve my websites so I took Cricket’s class. She has you work on one page of your site at a time. My goal has been to improve visits to my Team Building Tips site, so I chose to work on the Team Building Articles page. Within one week of making changes to that page of the team building site, it was getting found in the three major search engines. How’s that for success?
