Web design and SEO


The next step in successful online money making is SEO (Search Engine Optimization).  Search engines like Google and Bing are largely responsible for the success of most money making sites out there.  Search engines basically lead people with money to spend to your site.  Chances are almost zero for a potential buyer or clicker to type your site’s address in the address bar and going directly to your site.  A more likely situation is that the potential buyer or clicker will type a word which is somehow associated with your site into a search engine and clicking on your site as one of the top results for the search.  This is what you need to always consider when building and adding content to your site.  You need to keep Google happy, as Google’s happiness with your site could determine how much money you make.  There are many tricks that may improve your ability to keep Google happy but these are usually seen as a way of tricking Google into thinking it’s happy with your site and if realized or found out, will be harshly penalized in site rank.  The best form of SEO is to simply do whatever it takes to satisfy your readers of visitors.  This will get noticed by the search engines and if you keep your site fresh, healthy and interesting, you will pick the fruits.
