Topic: Understanding Search Engines

Nowadays, a web presence has become a requirement for most business entities regardless of their size or geo-location. We still miss those days when having a website meant that we were doing business with the entire world. Hence, due to the exponential growth of web traffic, a website has become nothing more than an online business card. If you do not share it, it is as good as a business card in your wallet, meaning it does not bring you any opportunities. Then, how do you market a website?

This presentation explains what a search engine can do for your website. Expect many tips that will give you a new perspective of the World Wide Web and how to benefit from this highway of unlimited resources.
