Claiming your WordPress blog on Technorati

I just added my new Technorati Profile. Claiming your WordPress blog establishes that you are its owner, and allows you to use Technorati services to increase your blog’s visibility. This is my attempt to see what happens, or to see if I notice any increase in traffic because my blog is listed on Technorati. I know that having links on popular websites can improve my rankings as well, so I’m making an effort to start putting more links out there. This is probably one of the biggest time sucks there is in managing a website, but it’s also a necessity in seach engine optimization.

We are living in the age of the World Wide Web. If people need a product or service, they no longer rummage through a hard copy of the Yellow Pages to find it; they sit down at their computer and begin browsing their favorite search engine. As a business owner or service provider with a growing company in mind, this should be very significant to you. If you’d like to see your business grow beyond your wildest dreams, you’d better consider getting yourself a website.

Don’t think that you’ll need to learn how to do it yourself. That’s not very realistic. Just because you are excellent at providing your product or service doesn’t mean that you were born to design a webpage for it. Besides, you should be focused on your sales and not worried about how to read HTML code. Leave it to us, the experts. With our collaborative ideas, we can create a website that accomplishes the mission and essence of your company while reaching customers globally on an exciting and innovative level.

Having your own website can give you a platform to stand above your competitors. It also allows many of your customers to learn about your business 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Search Engine Optimization

If you have been trying to get you company’s website ranked and keep hitting a brick wall, maybe it’s time to have a fresh set of eyes evaluating your work to see if all is being done that can be done to get you to the top of the search engines. Search engine optimization or search engine marketing is a tough business, and requires continuous effort to get to the top, and even more effort to stay on top.

As search engines change their algorithms and processes, new changes have to be made on your website to compensate. If you do not keep up with the most recent changes, your rankings can fall sharply, leaving you vulnerable to your competitors.

What are you searching for? Let’s say you use a popular search engine to find a store that sells vintage t-shirts. You type in “vintage t-shirts”, click “search”, and are greeted with hundreds of pages of websites that are somehow related to vintage t-shirts with many of them having nothing to do with actually “selling” shirts. What site is number one on the list? How many pages will you search through before calling it quits? More imperatively, what if it’s your vintage t-shirt site that is popping up on page 367? No one is going to see it! If no one sees your website, how do you plan to effectively expand your business? The key is placing your information right in front of the customer’s face, also known as product placement.

How can you do this? We can revolutionize your business by implementing the most valuable and latest search optimization and marketing techniques. We do extensive research to carefully index and map the possible keywords that your potential customers would choose when using a search engine. Some of our other tactics include video production, web content and article production, on-page optimization, linking, and PPC campaigns. Most importantly, we create an optimization and marketing campaign that works best for you and will insure the highest quality clientele. With a combination of these methods, you can ethically multiply your business growth and place yourself among the highest-ranking websites in your market. What are you waiting for? Rise up in the ranks and step above your competitors.
