The Bird That Killed SEO
SEO is web-jargon for "Search Engine Optimization." It means that your website is optimized with specific codes and tags that make your website rise above the competition.
Many clients have paid thousands of dollars to have their websites "Optimized" for search engines such as Google, but on April 24th 2012 an algorithm called "Penguin" from Google sent that kind of SEO the way of the Do-Do Bird.
These days, the best way to reach the top of a Google Search is to list your business with Google and invest your advertising dollars with them. Remember, Google isn't a search engine, they are an advertising company with the most popular search engine on the Internet today.

Promote Your Business
We have all heard about being a "shameless, self-promoter
" but the truth is, if you are running an honest business, providing goods or a service to others, working hard, paying your taxes and creating jobs in your community, you have nothing to be ashamed of at all.
Unless you are an E-Commerce company, a website is not an advertising cure-all. Like your business, your website has to engage customers on different levels and convince them that you are the one they want to spend their dollars with.
While it is important to promote your business, it is also important to promote your website and there are many easy, inexpensive ways to accomplish this goal.
Can't I Just Use a "Do-it-Yourself" Website?
Yes, you can use a "do-it-yourself" website service and there are many fine services that will allow you to build an attractive, professional looking website at a reasonable price.
However, even if you have some computer, graphics or website experience, there will still be a learning curve that will take you time to master. HTML (Hyper-Text-Markup-Linking) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are VERY complicated skills. Learning what you need to know isn't impossible, but there can be steep learning curves depending on what it is you would like to accomplish. Self-constructed websites are possible, but it can be time consuming and frustrating.
