This is a very common question that really has several parts to it.  Overall, generating more business can mean 1 of 2 different things, or both things together.  The first step is to have an overall business strategy.  You will need to decide on a target market and connect to that market.  Who is it you love to serve?  That passion will show itself on your web site, and that is what gets the clicks, phone calls, sales, email signups, etc.  That passion cannot be communicated to your target market if it isn’t there.

Another factor in generating more business from your web presence is being very aware of where your traffic is coming from.  What is your strategy for placing your links out on the web?  Random link exchanges and placing your links on directories that are filled with junk websites will not bring you visitors worth anything.  Those links may get you some search engine ranking clout, but in the long run, it’s what you receive is not worth the effort it takes to do all of that insignificant directory submissions.  4 or 5 good, quality and targeted directories will give you better results than 300 poor quality general directories.  So take the time up front to develop your strategy before you move forward on some random tactic here and there.

So what are the steps to generating more business?

Top 3 Ways to Improve Your Search Engine Optimization Results

There are many ways to drive traffic to your website, and one of the most effective and least expensive ways is to improve your search engine rankings and get search engine traffic to your website.  There are three things you must be sure that you do to give yourself the best chance at improving your search engine results.  Some of these take experience to improve and others are just basic common sense.
1) Research the keywords people are actually using to search for your products or services.
You may have received an email from some offshore “SEO company” that says they can get your website on the first page of Google.  It is very easy to get any website on the first page of Google.  The question is, for what search term, or keyword phrase are you getting your web site on the first page of Google?  Many times it’s a search term that no one else is really searching for.   If that is the case, then you will have some trouble at getting any traffic to your website for that term.  You should do your own keyword research, or hire a reputable company to find out which keywords your target market is using to find you and also which keywords are going to give you more responsive traffic.  There are many tools out there that will help you discover these keywords.  Find one and give yourself a step up on your competition.  Once you know these keywords, use them in your website text, page name, title tags and header tags.
2) Keep your web pages as focused as possible on a single topic.
The more focused your web pages are, the better they will rank in the […]
