    In our support system, we see this question frequently. I will tell you there is no magic answer. Getting Search Engine traffic requires time or money or both. However, you should know that Unique Content is the essence of the Search Engines world. The more content the Search Engines see the more they devour (index). If you don't add your own unique content there is absolutely no reason for a search engine to index your website. Fortunately, your Online Agency account has several features to help. We know because we use them ourselves. When we post regularly to our blogs we get more search engine traffic than when we don't.

    Your Online Agency account coupled with the Levelfield Broadcast Option is the first step to getting noticed by the Search Engines. If you don't have the Levelfield Broadcast Option call us (866) 489-4889 and get it today. This month (January 2007) you can get it for $69.00 normally $169.00 and an extra month of service on your account.

    The next step is to add unique content to your website. I'm not talking about the various supplier specials that you get in the email. Promotions are important and you should add them to your website but they are not unique content. I'm talking about something that is unique one of kind. This sounds hard but here's a little tip that might help you.

    1. Create a blog
    2. Set up a link on your website to your blog
    3. Post regularly to your blog - the more the better but at least several times a month.
    4. Not sure what to post - try this approach.
      • Find 30 to 100 photos that you have taken while traveling
      • Post a blog entry about the photo and attach the photo. Make sure you mentions things like where you took the photo, the time of the year, why you were traveling, and a brief description of the photo. Mention it's colors, travel suppliers, and your personal comments. Every noun that you write is a great keyword in its natural format. And every natural keyword gives the Search Engines something to index and can help bring Search Engine users to your website.
      • Make an entry every 2-3 days and before long you should start seeing some search engine traffic.

    One thing I am sure is that if you do nothing, nothing will happen. Get busy it's going to be a great year!

    PS.  There is nothing magic about META KEYWORDS.  Most search engines don't even look at them these days. Yet we see customers being instructed by various EXPERTS to set them up.  You may want to think a bit about your META TTITLE and META DESCRIPTION but I'm betting and seeing that the real deal is the actual content of the pages. 

    A cautionary note from Google - ""Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a "special relationship" with Google, or advertise a "priority submit" to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our Add URL page or through the Google Sitemaps (Beta) program, and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever."
