DIY Website Promotion

One of the most Frequently Asked Questions, is what can I do for my website to get onto Google? The short answer is, get links from other sites, get a blog, and add content often. Yes it is a huge amount of work and its going to take a long time – but you have a small business so you know what that is about right?

Instead of writing the whole thing out myself, here are links to others that have put things together much better than I could.

SEObook has put together a great set of resources on promoting your website on a shoe string. I would recommend his book as well as SEO for Dummies.

Google Engineer Matt Cutts has more tips and info here.

The other classic resource, from about 10 years ago is Brett Tabke’s article Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone – 26 steps to 15k a day.

Yes it really does work! Not that it’s a cakewalk tho – SEO for dummies is 450 pages and heavy going, but if you read, absorb and put into practice what they say, it might take a year or 2 of pretty hard slogging, but you will get on the first page of google, have thousands of people coming to your site again and again and make a lot of money.

    […] I know of several authors who spend 2+ years writing a book, were given advances under $2,000, a quick promo tour and then nothing.  A pretty dismal prospect to say the least.  I could name several clients that have sold ebooks online, directly from their website, and make a solid steady $1,000 – $2,000 per month, and have done for the last 6 years.  Not a princely sum, but with very little work once the site is up and running, a pretty attractive prospect.   And fan mail all the time from people all over the world.  Granted they had some SEO on their sites, plus some extras from a techy relative, but none of that is beyond reach.  SEO and blogging isn’t rocket science – Tips on DIY web promotion.
