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 did you see 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 city like Coeur d’Alene it’s not that hard to get to the top of the search results because the population is smaller than, say, Atlanta. Less population equals fewer competitor pages and less SEO work you’ll have to do to achieve good results.
Cd’A is a lakefront city that has many wealthy people who own second homes there. It made sense to me that most of these people would do a Google search of the city long before they came looking for a property. I felt like internet marketing was fishing upstream of my competition.
The secret to achieving good results in natural search is to generate links to your site. It’s very easy to do but you have to find high value sites and you can only do 2 or 3 a day. The hardest part of doing SEO is staying consistent. I have devised a plan that only takes 1 hour, five days a week. It’s an easy way to get to the top of the natural search results in a fun and never frustrating way.
