Directories are online lists of businesses or people. Think of the old yellow pages. That’s where people went to find a business. Now it is all online. You can even find multiple yellow pages companies who have online directories. Most directories have a free basic service with an upgrade if a business wants more services.
Directories offer influential and high quality backlinks to new and existing local business. Basically, a backlink is a link in one website (in this case a directory) that links to your website. In a directory, this is accomplished by entering your website domain with the information about you and your company.
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.
Why do we require action plans? Without one, you won’t be acting, and will always be reacting. Can you conceive of the U. S. Army Special Forces streaming arbitrarily into battle without a strategy? Readiness is always a fantastic idea, although plainly it can be a lot of work.
Here you will gain the insight and tools for everything you need to know about, to develop and to put into action
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.
Keyword research is one of the most critical components of any internet marketing campaign. Without proper keyword research, it will be much harder for people to find your website.
Keywords are the words and phrases people search for when they visit a search engine. If you wanted to buy the television show Lost on DVD, you might search for “Lost DVD” or “Buy Lost on DVD”.
If your site doesn’t have the right keywords, no one will be able to find it. Thus, it is vital that you choose the right keywords, and you add them to your site in the right places to ensure proper search engine optimization.
In this report, I’m going to teach you exactly how to find the right keywords for your niche, how to choose the ones you should focus on more heavily, and where you should add them on your pages in order to have the best possible effect for SEO purposes.
Creating and publishing a website is no longer a mysterious, cryptic task that is reserved only for computer geeks. Nowadays, virtually everyone and their dog has their own website. Anyone wanting a piece of the virtual pie can easily sign up for a free Blogger blog in about five minutes. In addition, there are lots of WYSIWYG editors available that make creating a beautiful, interactive website a very simple drag & drop process.
So that’s the easy part. The difficulty lies in getting your website seen! With the internet’s estimated 20 billion webpages, how on earth can you attempt to rise above obscurity and become well-known and famous in your niche?
The answer lies in search engine optimization. SEO can be defined as the process of driving traffic to your website organically (unpaid) from the search engines.
Facebook. You’ve heard of it. You probably have an account. You may have all of your high school friends on your Facebook account. You may even have found a few people you forgot about. You may even have time for a few of those games – or you may loathe their very existence. It’s a place you go to hang out, learn something, and read something or maybe you sign in rarely.
Have you allowed your business to have its own ability to socialize and interact with potential customers and other businesses ?
Perhaps you don’t want to let your business meet your friends. Perhaps you don’t want to push ads on your friends or cause them to think less of you for talking about your business.
That’s okay. Your business deserves its own presence on this social media-marketing site. Are you ready to give in and open an account ?
You may know that Facebook is the largest, by far, of the social media sites. You’ve heard about its IPO and its profit margins. So, what do you think. What does this site have to do with my business ?
And much more !
