Guide to Maintaining an Effective Web Presence
Most companies and professionals don't understand what it actually takes to maintain a solid web presence and how important it is, for both converting
visits and maintaining a positive online public image, to rank well on search engines.
Most people think that search engine optimization is simply optimizing a website for it to rank better on search engines. They think that it simply
involves changing a few page titles and inserting a few keywords into the website's content for it to climb the rankings, but this couldn't be farther from
If you know anything about effective SEO than you know that a website's rankings is almost solely dependent on the quality and quantity of it's

few pages of content, no matter what anyone at Google or any other search engine has been telling you.
So your natural response to this statement would be that you probably need to hurry up and get some links from other websites, right?
Yes, but it doesn't have to be as difficult as it sounds. With it becoming more and more easier for you to launch a Wordpress blog or website using any
other free content management system, you can easily manage multiple websites which you can build into authority sites with an aggressive linking
structure. It pretty much comes down to who is creating the content, yourself or someone in your office, or any of the thousands of writers on Craigslist

The inbound links that you have coming into your website are very important to your website's success when it comes to SEO, and with the right steps,
you can be in complete control of where your website is found and linked from.
