Question by Greg S: Need Info on Search Engine Placement for my web site?
I am about to launch a web site selling coffe and tea. I don’t know anything about search engine optimization, the companies that are supposed to do it for you, etc. Anyone with a web site have any insight on services/prices, etc. Thanks!
Answer by pleeker
Services and prices vary greatly from town to town and company to company. As a small biz owner, your choices are to spend money by hiring someone else to do it, or spend time learning how to do it yourself.
If you choose to hire someone, I’d suggest reading this article, which I wrote for my previous employer:
If you’re going to do it yourself, there are lots of web sites, forums, and blogs you can follow to learn. (I’ll include my blog link below in the SOURCE area.) When I speak on the Search Engine Strategies circuit, I also recommend attending SEO training classes and/or some SEO books.
But you have to either spend the money or spend the time, whatever works best for you.
Good luck with the new web site!
