Just about everybody is on Facebook now. You are, right?Facebook is only getting larger, and their 'Pages' feature is extremely useful as a way to help people promote their businesses. Once your Page is up and running, it is available to everybody on Facebook and their friends. People suggest useful and interesting Facebook Pages to their friends. Facebook Pages can contain anything related to your business or creative enterprise: Descriptions and Mission Statements, to latest news, to Galleries, to Discussion Boards, to posting your Hours of Operation, and also as a way for your 'Fans' to interact and leave comments. We can develop a Facebook Page for your business, website, band, organization, art, or anything and suggested it to over 5,000 people!
Content Optimization is a concept that maximizes a single page's ability to draw traffic. After you're comfortable with keyword research and have chosen several keyword phrases, it's time to develop content around those keyword phrases.
Finding Keywords is an art. One of the most important things you can do for your website is determining which search terms are most meaningful. Sometimes called "keywords", search terms are the words and phrases that internet users type in to Google, Yahoo and other search engines when they are looking for something specific. Examples range into the millions but figuring out which keywords and keyword phrases (keywords that are often used together) is critical not only in driving traffic to your website but driving the right traffic.
Custom Shopping Cart development.
We have developed many shopping carts over the years using several different systems. Once we know your e-commerce needs, we can suggest the best possible shopping cart alternatives. We will develop your shopping cart to meet your specific needs and online sales goals. We offer simple PayPal or Google Checkout carts to more elaborate, custom shopping carts.
Search Engine Optimization.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of preparing a website for search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, MSN, AOL etc. to "spider" or "crawl" your website. Search Engines are based on a random algorithm, and each search engine considers their method of returning results as proprietary. That's why when you go to Google and type in a phrase like "car insurance" you will get a different list of companies than you would if you typed that same phrase in Yahoo!
