We are now on our 4th lesson in the 14-series Webinar of The Virtual Staff Entrepreneur Program.

Last year, Genesis Reonico taught us how to do keyword research and how to build a website. So I guessed you did your homework during Christmas break and now running your own website :-).

After building your website and putting some high quality keywords on your original content which is providing value to your readers, you thought you are now okay.  People would find your website because your content would be very helpful to them.

Then Alas!. You found out that only a few people are checking to your  and reading your blog.

So what would you do? You now have to start doing your website promotion.

Website promotion is another part of SEO that we needed  in order to gain traffic.

According to Wikipedia – SEO is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic”) search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users.
