SEO-Search Engine Optimization, What is it and why do I keep hearing so much about it. The answer to that is simple. When was the last time you looked up a number in a phone book? Or seen a phone book or know where yours is right now? The game has changed, the internet is where people go when they want to find a product or hire a service. In my opinion you have to have some sort of web presence if you want to compete in today’s business world.
In a small town like Coeur d’Alene it is not as difficult to reach the top of the search results because the population is smaller than let’s say Atlanta. Less population equates to less competing pages and less SEO work you will need to do to achieve good results.
Cd’A is lake front town that has many wealthy people that own second or perhaps first properties there. It made sense to me that most of the rich people own properties there because it is where the wealthy people who own those properties can go to when they want to cut a second or a third quick on property wealth. I felt like internet marketing was fishing way upstream from my competition.
The secret to achieving good results in the natural search engine results is build links to your site. It is important to place your websites with similar sites and to build your links. I use to do all the link building myself. Then I realized the search engines did not like that method. Now I buy links and place my sites on a very crowded link web.
Another method is to use a spider search engine that will go to your site and look at your content and keywords and index them. It will also help you find quality sites to link to using your keywords. I use the Free Keyword Suggestion Tool from Wordtracker you can find it by Googling Free Keyword Suggestion Tool.

On page optimization is just a small part of what you will need to do. Off page optimization is the most important. Search engines look at how many other sites link to your site when they establish the rankings of a site. That is why it is so important to link to other sites. Search engines can see that you have links coming to your site and they will know that you are ranking well. That is why I suggest you make link building a part of your search engine optimization.
Link building can be done in a few different ways. Some people suggest that you can pay other sites to link to you. This can be a good way to get fast links if you do it right. Dont follow that idea as finding sites like that always takes time.

Stay away from the techniques like making your keywords the same color as your background. Most search engines see that as a black hat marketing technique. Search engines will penalize your site if you do that.
Be active in sites that are similar to yours and see who links to them. Get those sites to link back to you in return. Work at getting links from other sites to your site.
There are several directories that will post your site to their site for free.
