Use Google to Promote Your Business

Imagine my surprise when i went to and saw a swection about Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Simply put, SEO is how you write, design, and market a website so that it will show up higher in the search engines. A very valuable tool for a webmaster, or even a small business. Someone who wanted to advertise travel insurance, video games, a store, or even an antique shop could benefit highly from using Google as a traffic source. Interesting that it showed up there since they don't typically talk about such things. On top of that it isn't really common knowledge to most business owners so it is probably a good thing.

For anyone that is already familia with SEO it isn't going to help you a whole lot as it is just general information, but for the people who haven;t it is a decent breakdown as to what Google can do for your business and is something you should consider. MArketing on the internet is very easy once you understand the basic concepts of it.
