So Canada finally gets it, SEO I mean, they must do as CTV has covered a story about it. A guy in Ottawa has even started a club, WOW only 10 years after the rest of the world. He says
“Search Engine Optimization (or SEO) can make or break your online business and personal web activities”.
What it means is how to set things up so that people can find you when they do an online search and 90% of the time that is a Google search. It is the difference between showing up on the first page of results or the 10th page.
Well I never.
He follows with “It’s website combat our there,” “You have to battle to get people to find you rather than your competition.” His top two pieces of advice: “Be sure your site is focused on your firms key facts; don’t try to do too many things so it’s easy for people to find what they need. Second, do something that is going to wow people within 30 seconds of arriving on your home page.”
Obviously he’s been reading blogs and visiting the tech shows and listen to people at search engine land and the likes, I bet he’s even bought the SEO Book.
The story finishes with the statement, Be Google-friendly as Google gives more and more weight to mentions on social sites or how many times your material is on Twitter. He says the new web world is the “Klondike gold rush of 2010, yet 95% of the people I talk to have no idea of how much search activity is passing them by.” Google has more than 200 million visitors every day.
To be honest, crap like this totally pisses me off, just another dink jumping on the bandwagon trying to promote a new marketing club, get speeches and take easy dollars.
How many people do you hear talking, blogging and writing about SEO? shitloads.
How many of these individuals or company’s actually rank on the search engines for what they do and talk about? not many. Deeeeerrrrrr!
Search engines like Google and the others are great for doing due diligence, if these so called marketing and seo experts are as good as they tell everyone, surely they will be at the top of the search engines right?
