:: Marketing Opportunities for Small Businesses

Marketing online has become fiercely competitive. Marketers are attempting to unravel and decipher online marketing to succeed. Some argue that there should not be a distinction between traditional (off-line) marketing and online marketing. Others feel that concepts applied to mail order work well on the web, while still others argue that online marketing is a breed of its own and what works in one arena may not work in another. While some standard practices like "above" the fold, hold true in both print and online copy, it is rare that you see the printed type face on the web the same as in printed advertisements.

Regardless there are traditional forms of advertising that are viable and make sense to use on the web but many marketers do not.

These undervalued marketing opportunities are not the end-all be-all but are great supplemental channels that compliment strong online marketing campaigns.

:: Tips from Axandra for Decent Ranking

Your web site should have a certain age

The older a website is, the less dramatic are the fluctuations with each algorithm change. If your website has a certain age and if the content of your website has regular updates then search engines know that it's worth to list your web site because you'll probably still be around tomorrow.

Your web site should have good content

Search engines want to redirect web surfers to web sites on which they can find useful information. The more content your website has, the better you'll be listed. It's very difficult to get good search engine rankings with a website that has only a few pages.

Links from other sites are still important

The more websites link to you, the more important is your website. Of course, you shouldn't link to every Tom, Dick and Harry and the other sites that link to you should also be related to your site.

Consider how the link popularity principle was originally meant: you think that another website is a great resource and then you link to it. If you get links like that, you'll get solid search engine rankings.

Make it easy for search engines to index your site

Many websites have great content but it is nearly impossible for search engines to index them. If you want high search engine rankings, you should make it as easy as possible for search engines to index your site.
