Increase the Power of your SEO Efforts
Writing by Nick Stamoulis on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 Comments (4)
If you have been conducting search engine optimization efforts for your website for some time and you are wondering why things just are not working out like they should you might want to take a step back and take a look at some other factors that could be holding your website back from climbing in the rankings.

Here are a few important areas to consider when marketing your online business:

• Proper Steps? – Did you dive into link building or did you take the proper steps to optimize your website first? If you’re trying to build links without taking the time to focus on your website first you will never see the results you are looking for. Link building before on-site optimization is a lot like putting the buggy before the horse.

• Brand Power – Have your tired to increase the power of your brand? Strong branding elements often times will get a website visitor to reconsider things when they make it to your website. Try either re-branding or branding your business website even more to get people interested what you have to say. Branding is playing an even more important role in today’s market place than it ever has before. Website traffic wants to see your logo and company info in many different places so make sure that you are branding your business actively.

• Website Structure – This is very important, have you taken them time to make sure the layout of your site is completely ready for your business goals. If your goal is online sales on your online store than you should have many ways for that website visitor to make it to your online store. If you want leads your lead form should be visible on every page of your website. You want to make sure your URL’s to all your web pages are clean and optimized and all content is clearly visible on all your web pages.

• Age of Website – Did you just launch your website a few weeks or months ago? If you just recently launched your website you will have to diversify your marketing approach until you start ranking in search results. Rankings are given to websites who have been around for some time and you have to have your expectations in order when launching a recently new website.

Search engine optimization requires a unique and carved out plan that requires some patience and time to get right. It is more than just building relevant inbound links to your website. It is building a business and on any platform building a business brings its own challenges.

Nich Finder


I have been promoting Micro Niche Finder for two years. There is so many crap and garbage software that promise people the world and fail to deliver. Micro Niche Finder is not one of these products. Micro Niche Finder will NOT fail to deliver.

The software has a cost of $97. That may seem like a lot of money to you… then again, maybe not. Whatever you feel, I can tell you this… purchasing Micro Niche Finder is totally worth the money. And because of that, here are 20 reasons why:

Micro Niche Finder works.
It comes with free lifetime updates… I started with version 2. Current version is 4.6.2.
You get a free license to install MNF on a second computer.
You get a free copy of the software on a USB Flash Drive.
It comes with life time SUPPORT. James literally answers emails so quickly I often wonder if he has cloned himself.
You get a bonus Squidoo eBook.
You get a bonus AdSense page generator tool.
You get a bonus PLR profits eBook.
You get a Yahoo! Answers traffic guide.
It shows you if domain names are available.
It shows you the number of backlinks needed to rank in Google.
It shows you which keywords get the most traffic.
Mirco Niche Finder shows you which keywords are worth building blogs or websites about.
It shows you which keywords have too much competition.
The software shows you which keywords have the least amount of competition.
The software will change how you research keywords.
The software will change your views about SEO.
Micro Niche Finder will teach you more about SEO.
Micro Niche Finder will give you a clearer understanding of SEO.
The software will not make you rich overnight… instead, give it six months after you’ve successfully launched your 100th site.
Need a bonus reason… My Friend Mark Mason can provide that in a video presentation he just launched on his blog and YouTube. Check it out below:
