3 Most businesses assume their site will be ranked high on The Google. When they are not showing up on the search engines they get frustrated with their web designers. Customers who make more money (because they get search engine traffic) tend to stick around longer and refer more business. Overall the competition is only getting tougher. Web Designers Need to Offer SEO

4 On-page Optimization – research, planning and implementation. Anything and everything that can be controlled on the website. Link Building (Off-page optimization) – the process of getting other websites to link to your website. Think of links as popularity votes. SEO From 30,000 Feet

5 Use the Google Keyword tool combined with brainstorming to figure out what people are searching for in relation to your business. Besides local keywords, what other niches can you compete in (e.g legal website designer, travel website developer, etc.). Be sure to pick carefully as these keywords form the foundation of your SEO strategy. Assign 1-3 keywords per appropriate page of your site (eg, not the privacy policy). https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal Tip 1: Perform Proper Keyword Research
