3 Great Things To Get You On Your Way
The Finishing Touches-Your Relationships
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 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.
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.

You are probably a small business person if you are reading this book. While the examples used here are for hypnotherapists, you can use it for any holistic practitioner work. Much of it will even work for most small businesses.
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.
Hypnotherapists, Life Coaches and other holistic practitioners work with people with different needs. Their needs may be related to their personal life, their career, or their health. Each area can be very different. What you offer and what they are looking for needs to match to create success. It also is very important to include this in your marketing. The more people can relate to how you can help them, the more they will want your services.
For example, if you are a hypnotherapist, you most likely work with smokers and people who want to lose weight. These are two different niches. These people have different needs and desires.
As a Life Coach, you may be working with people who want to improve their business or improve their personal life. These are two different niches. These people have different needs and desires.
‘Content’ is the marketing and educational words that businesses write and post for public viewing. More recently, content also includes images and videos, especially their file names. Content may be blog posts, videos, articles, or website pages.
If you notice, large corporations are beginning to write more and more information on their websites and social media marketing. In fact, 30% of large corporations’ marketing is now content marketing.
Corporations provide content because not only do readers like the information, but Google rewards websites that have a lot of quality, unique content. Among other criteria, Google ranks websites higher if they add new content on an ongoing basis.
How can a small business do the same as the large corporations? This ebook explains how to do what’s essential, both easily and effectively.
