Gain traffic from Search Engines from simply reading a free eBook. Amazing Article!

Gaining a understanding for SEO:

I came across a eBook recently that involved some information about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The book outlines what the major Search Engines are looking for, and puts some of the myths and stories that you might have heard of to rest. I am really not a big fan of eBook's at all. In fact, this might be the only eBook I have read in at least 3 years. If you run a website of any kind, you have probably had to learn the hard way that you don't get this instant magic surge of traffic like some people make them out to be.

A website is nothing unless people are looking at it. You have to think of it the same way as a new phone number. For example, say you just started a business and you purchased a new (1 800) phone number to do business with your new customers or clients. You should know there is no way that anyone will be calling you on that phone number unless it was through advertising or by some other means. As you probably know, advertising services are not free. The good thing about the internet is that advertising is free but there's always a catch. You must put in your work to do it, or pay someone to do this work for you.

The big search engines are not going to just list your website in the keywords that you might want them to. You will have to tweak your pages, coding, and plan ahead before designing your website to get the results that you want. This free eBook explains in great detail what you should know about before going into this. It will provide you with a complete understanding what Google, Yahoo, and other search engines are looking for when they send robots out to scan and index your website. This information is also good for people who might already have a website built, but want to implement better Search Engine listing results. Below you will find a summary of what the eBook provides to the reader and information on the author of the book.

Chapter 3: The Importance of Good Unique Content
In my own opinion this is absolutely the most important thing to keep in mind when building your website. I have the proof and facts to back this up myself. The chapter goes on to explain why this is so important, and explaining the results of almost guaranteed failure by not complying with this simple rule. The chapter is also a reminder that you get back exactly what you put into your website.
