That’s where SEO (search engine optimization) comes in. The course progresses from the fundamentals of SEO; how search engines works; how to optimize your search engine results; how to increase your “hits” at no cost; how to avoid the pitfalls of being deemed a spamming site; and, then hands-on practical applications of what you’ve learned, e.g. you’ll start optimizing your websites search engine results before you leave the class! This course will be of benefit to people who get marketing and promotional activities added to their overall responsibilities, but who don’t have e-marketing backgrounds. As this short course teaches the essential basics of SEO, it’s a great course to use in building effective in-house marketing teams. After this course, your site may not go viral, but you will be more visible by those looking for your product, service, or blogging subject. This is especially true of those searching in your geographical area. E-marketing can no longer be left out of any businesses’ marketing strategy. When you finish the course you’ll have the fundamental tools to optimize your website’s presence on the web and your search engine results.
