(The Hosting News) – On Thursday, February 10 at 1 PM EST (10 AM PST) Search Marketing Now presents “Building Web Traffic Through Search: What Every SMB Must Know,” a free webcast featuring search marketing industry veteran Disa Johnson.
Registration is open at Search Marketing Now.
Search marketing has become a key ingredient for driving traffic to websites. As potential customers use search engines to look for products or services, every business wants its website to show up first. The successful sites are those that use search marketing to drive trusted traffic and convert searchers into customers.
What are the basics for search marketing success? How do businesses build a website that will rise to the top of the list and attract your potential customer?
In this webcast, search industry veteran Disa Johnson will cover the basics of search marketing — from keywords and title tags to link-building and search-friendly copywriting. We’ll focus on search engine optimization (SEO), but will also cover the basics of pay-per-click (PPC) and the impact of social media sites.
Following Disa’s presentation, Bob Angus of Verisign will discuss the importance of building a secure site and generating trusted traffic — with tips for getting started. He’ll walk through 5 online businesses and reveal specific techniques for how they improved clicks, stayed off black lists, and boosted profits.
This is a must-attend for anyone involved with web design or development — or online marketing — for a small-to-medium sized business (SMB.)
