Search Engine Optimization

Wickenburg business owners, beware of the snake oil salesman in our town.

From an article titled “3 Ways to Immediately Increase Search Engine Traffic” by Nick Wilson of Performancing.com:

There are still die hard SEO’s out there that spend all their time trying to game the system, but most of them are pretty shit at it, only a very few have enough resources to manage it. There are also, a whole slew of con merchants masquerading as SEO’s, just as there are fake designers in the web design field, basing their credentials on the fact that they’ve read a few articles, or bought a keyword tracking tool.

These people are idiots, and should be avoided at all costs.

(Emphasis added.)

The point: if you’re paying money for someone to tell you how to make your site rank higher in search engine results or, worse yet, are actually paying someone to make your rank higher, you’re being taken for a ride. All the information you need about search engine optimization is available for free, on the Web. And the Performancing.com Web site is a good place to start.

So don’t give your hard-earned money to crooks, local or otherwise.

What do you think?
