Fishing in the Internet Sea for Business Bites…

Often SEO is a major part to setting up your Internet business online, getting people to get to your site so they will either buy your serves or the items you sell… But getting all of those people to get to your site is the key… Think to having your website like your fishing for bites in a vast sea, the more lines and hooks you have in the water, the higher the chance is you will have more fish by the end of the day…

I know many might disagree with me in some of these views, which I don’t mind… But in the end, it still boils down to people getting to your site and being able to find your site…

Think of your Website as being your “Fishing Boat”… If you have a website, (Not a blog) with a domain name, and have it designed well, with key words, meta code and such you will get a few people to find it via search engines… But if you add in a Blog, you will get even more people to come to your main site, have a chance to show you know what your talking about, and earn trust in those who look at your site, though your knowledge and experience you write about of your business…

With your Website, as an example, say a 5 page site, what has your service explained on one page, cover entrance page, sample page and one that tells of how to contact you and an order form, (Very simple site), you can have it linked to “Local searches” very easily, as this is a stagnant website, with not much changing…

With a Blog, you can have daily, weekly or monthly articles written and posted within it, with key words that help gain you more within the search engines searches with those key words, but not with Local searches… Granted some will argue it is the same as a website, but when you try to do a search for local business, a blog is not going to score as high on the list as a regular website… And depending on what your subject matter is for your last blog posting, it might not even show up… This is where having both helps you’re being online…

Think to it like the small site I mentioned earlier having a few hooks in the water, connect it with the blog, that has many “new key words” and ideas within the entries, you suddenly can have many hooks in the water, all linking back to your main site… It’s like with each blog entry, you add a few more hooks to catch the attention of more people, to entice them to go to your website… It is within these that you can catch more people’s attentions, through other subjects you might write about also… For example, if you add in your blog, your view of local activities you are interested in or do, you might also find people who are interested in those and also find your services and gain trust through common interests- like virtual networking…

Now if you add in Social media, say FaceBook and Twitter, you can have even more hooks in the water, some that go to your website, some go to your Blog, and so on… Like direct casting to where you see the fish in the water…

FaceBook to me is best for local business, as it is built best for local searches, via location or subject for the majority of businesses that are online… Twitter is best for larger out of the area services or product sales, and can lead to international connections, but there are ways to use Twitter to gain local connections (will talk about this in another Blog entry)… If you have a lawn care business, you might not want to spend as much time on Twitter as you do in FaceBook… But adding these to your full internet business will add even more hooks to bring in the bites from a the Internet sea of viewers there are out there…

Good luck Fishing…

  1. To build credibility simply be proof of your own hype and give people value over and over again. Help others to achieve what they want to, and you become credible in their eyes.
