3 Great Things To Get You On Your Way
The Finishing Touches-Your Relationships
Keywords and keyword phrases are just words or a word phrase. Often the term “keyword” includes phrases. Keyword phrases are also called keyphrases, long tail keywords or long tail keyword phrases. I prefer to use the term Keyword to mean both single and multiple words.
Bottom line, keywords are words and phrases that the search engine analyzes for their indexes and what people type into the search engine to find the information they want. Examples of keywords are: gardening, organic gardening, herb garden, gardening tips, gardening supplies.
In this usage, what is important is how often the word or phrase was searched in search engines, such as Google. In other words, how often did people type into Google that word or word phrase to find the information they are looking for.
So if I am writing about antique furniture, if I use ‘old’ as a keyword, it wouldn’t work so well as I would get people searching for old hats, old dogs, etc. Yet I could use a keyword phrase of ‘old furniture’ if it ranks well in the search engine listings.
Keywords, in this usage, has little to do with the older copywriting concept of a key word or phrase in the article. Think of it as that humans do not read keywords initially. It’s all about how people will search the internet and find the article, so the computer reads it first.
95% of people use the internet now to find a business. If people cannot see your site, then you are not going to be making any sales. One of the cheapest forms of traffic is search engine optimization (SEO). This is the process of optimizing your website to rank for specific keywords within one of the search engines such as Google. One of the first things you need to understand when you start learning SEO is the role of meta tags.
Meta tags are simply lines of html code that are put into a web page to communicate certain things to the search engines. These control things such as how you want your website to display in the search engines as well as what keywords that you believe you should be ranking for.
The first, and least important, meta tag to discuss are the keywords meta tags. These were originally meant to aid search engine indexing by telling web browsers what keywords that you think your page should best be seen under. However, the problem is that many web masters started to stuff these with all sorts of keywords they wanted to rank for. If everyone wants to rank for “make money online” everyone will have it in the keyword meta tag which does not do search engines much good. As a result, these are not very useful anymore and are likely ignored entirely, with the exception of sites such as press releases.
The Meta Title Tag tells the search engine how you want your web page to be seen in the search results. This is arguably the most important tag for SEO. You want the main keyword you are trying to rank for to always appear somewhere in your meta title tag. Additionally, given it is the most prominent thing that comes up when someone searches, you want it to catch people’s eyes and induce them to click on it.
The last important meta tag is the Description Meta Tag. This is what appears directly under the title tag in the search results, which is a more elaborate summary of what your site is about. It only appears if words in the description are typed in the search, so you want to again make sure any key words you are targeting appear in the description. You also want it to be compelling copy to make people want to click it.
Setting meta tags these days is pretty easy if you are using WordPress. You can use a SEO plugin such as All In One SEO or Yoast SEO to set these individually for each page before you publish it. The most important is to set meta tags for the home page, which can usually be done in the plugin settings section.
Having the proper meta tags setup is a prerequisite for strong rankings. By understanding meta tags you have taken your first step towards SEO domination, meaning that Google will list your website higher than others.
In this book, we will look at what Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is, and the ways in which it can be used. Through this book, we will provide you with the basics on using Search Engine Optimization in order to improve traffic flow to your site.
By many people, SEO is considered to be a part of search engine marketing. It is often used when people are describing a process for improving the amount of traffic that goes to a website from various different search engines. Many site owners will engage in using SEO in an attempt to obtain qualified visitors to their
site. The quality of these visitors will often be measured by what specific keywords they are using in order to reach the desired result they want, such as making a purchase, or it could just viewing or downloading a particular page on that site. It may be that the visitor just requests some further information, or they sign up to a newsletter.
Search Engine Optimization is a marketing strategy which can often generate a good return for the site. But what must be remembered is that search engines are not actually paid for the traffic they send to a site from a natural (organic) search. Plus, they will regularly change the algorithms that they use for these searches to be carried in an effort to improve the results for people using their search engine. In fact, there is no guarantee that using this system is successful in either the long or short term for any website. Because of this, SEO is often compared to traditional forms of PR (Public Relations), while PPC (Pay per Click) advertising is more closely associated with traditional forms of advertising.
However, even if you do find you have increased traffic to your site because of SEO, if your site is unprepared for this increased traffic, it may in fact be detrimental to your site, as visitors will go away feeling dissatisfied and will not return.
But though SEO can be considered as a marketing tactic which is a law unto itself, it is often considered to part of the bigger picture by many industry experts.
Reviews and testimonials are statements that a customer or client has made about you or your business. They have similarities and differences.
Testimonials are positive statements the client has given you and you have posted on your website or other marketing materials.
Reviews may be positive, neutral or negative and are written by someone about you, your services or your business. Typically, reviews are posted on directories or review sites. A review may be written by anyone, even someone who hasn’t worked with you. A person might even post a review about how you handled a phone call.
What’s important is to think about two things:
a) The search engines who read it
b) The people who read it
Obviously, you first care about your visitors, after all, it’s them that will make the decision to purchase. But you also need to know reviews are tracked by the search engines.

Your Success Action Plan
You may consider this a step in the direction of going into battle for your success. Any battle needs a strategy.
Constructing The Strategy
Let’s get cracking. First of all, ask yourself a couple of questions about the overall scenario.
1. What is it that I want to accomplish here?
2. What are acceptable damages or losses? It may well be none!
Now, take stock of the individuals in the scenario, beginning with the opponent.
1. What is he or she like?
2. What are their strong points?
3. What are their failings?
4. Do you know anything about their former story?
5. What would they commonly do?
6. How would they respond to stress or hardship?
7. With all that data, what’s an effective technique you are able to use?
Then, flip it around and ask those questions of yourself.
There are 2 ways you are able to approach this information. First, ask from your own aspect. The other choice would be positioning yourself in your opponent’s shoes and asking those oppugns from there. You’ll be shocked at the insights you are able to get from that, particularly if you’re honest. It may get uncomfortable, however.
Now, imagine that you have a noisy neighbor, Bob. He blasts Britney Spears at three in the morning, and keeps everybody awake. You want to do something about it, but lack the self-assertiveness. Now, employing preparation like we just covered to this example may be overkill, but it’s “generic” enough an example for you to conform to your own state of affairs.
Let’s take stock of Bob. He’s loud and dictatorial. He’s 6 foot 3, an ex- bodybuilder with a neck like a angus steer. He does not have a failing, but you do recognize he likes to think of himself as a fair man. You also remember that he detests primitiveness, and he responds by using his size to intimidate. Now thinks about how much you know about his history. Does he follow through with his threats with physical violence, or does he have sufficient good sense not to?
Now, flip it around to you. Your greatest weakness is a deficiency of assertiveness, and stammer when speaking to larger men. But put yourself in his place, and you’ll acquire added insight. Does he see you as a friendly neighbor, a skinny chicken, or does he remember the DVD you barrowed and returned all scratched up?
Can you determine how that will bear on your approach? Plainly politeness is the way to go since he probably does still remember the DVD. But if you’re too shy, you may decide to write a memo alternatively. Because he’s upset over the DVD, it may be a good idea to calm the waters with a peace-offering.
Now, you may be thinking that this is common sense, but till you make it a formal process, there’s a lot you’re likely to overlook.
In this ebook, you’ll learn all the ins and outs of using Twitter and using it as an essential marketing resource for your Internet business. If you haven’t heard the buzz about Twitter yet or are still wondering what the real purpose of twitter is all about, let me try to explain.
Twitter in a nutshell is a simple social networking website that lets you share with your friends know what you’re doing – right now! Hence the old catch phrase on the Twitter sign-up page –“What are you doing?” Think of Facebook, instant messaging and sms all rolled into one simple package, and you’ve got Twitter.
Twitter works around a time line which is displayed on a single page that’s updated every second of every minute of every hour….you get my point. It’s a constantly updated stream of news from people all around the world. As a member, you can add your own little message to the time line up to 140 characters long to it known as a “tweet”.
But that doesn’t mean you’re going to be able to see every Twitter user’s Tweets. You can choose who you want to “Follow” and others can choose to Follow you. And it’s these followers who you can converse (tweet) with.
You might be thinking “wow, big deal” but there is massive potential in this mini social networking site to meet other like-minded people, share info and web site links. And those factors mixed with the ability to grow your followers make it a perfect platform for business.
You can also use Twitter to….
* Send direct messages to users instead of broadcasting to everyone,
* Mobile options to send and receive tweets via SMS and email from your cellphone,
* Search options allowing you to find Twitter users posting about a certain topic,
* An API that allows 3rd party developers to develop some great applications.
It’s taking the world by storm and there is a great potential for business owners, online and off, so if you’re not a member yet, sign up for a free Twitter account now.
