Google’s recent changes in their search results are a prime example of why a local (not only small) businesses must be taking all the SEO actions considered as best practices in the industry.
With every “evolution” that comes about in the world of online marketing there are a new “breed” of online marketing “experts” (Uhh hhmm) that emerge and proclaim themselves the keepers of the secret keys to your online success.

With new tax laws juxtaposed against rising regulatory costs, health care concerns for employees, educational issues and the emerging workforce across the planet,the future of small business in America can seem to be on shaky ground.
In my conversations with business owners I see that there are those that look to the future with great expectations and those that are seriously concerned.

The question may be mute and may better be expressed as: “How long will it take for China to become the financial and economic center of of our world?

Many people I encounter don’t even know about the subject of Internet Neutrality. And It is a big issue, especially if you are a business owner. Internet neutrality or “Net” Neutrality for short is the subject dealing with how the Internet is shared or used by all.
The basic concept is that the Internet is a public channel available to everyone, business owner, online Marketer and consumer alike to use on an equal footing. This would mean that a large corporation would not get more access or better access or faster service than anyone else.

We do specialize in driving traffic, SEO, social and article networking but only YOU can convert sales.
Over the years I have heard complaints about people spending so much money on marketing and not getting any sales. The traffic is there, the product is great and they even put the time and effort into blogging and article marketing. Sometimes they even go the extra mile and actually pay an online marketing company to drive more traffic, yet still the same results. So these site owners continue to rack their brains as to what could possibly be the cause of such results? Or should I say, lack of results?

Microsoft is after Apple…Apple is after Google…and Google is going after the world!
The world is changing “technologically” right before our eyes and this means opportunity for you and your business.
I saw yesterday a brilliant man extremely successful and extremely influential in his area of expertise make a pointed statement against those in the Internet Marketing field.
His statement was that the Internet wasn’t a technology medium, but a people medium.
