Online Information Marketing Means SEO



Information Marketing

Yes, online information marketing means SEO, whether we like it or not, and whether we do it ourselves or not. We just have to do it. We have to pay attention to keywords and links coming into our websites and blogs because those links affect our page rankings. We cannot afford to ignore SEO if we are serious about marketing information online.

Ken McGaffin of WordTracker is in the SEO groove. Link-building is his primary business focus, so I pay attention when I see the following in his blog post this week,”To be effective as a link builder, you’ve got to know your industry inside out. Compile these lists and you’ll know more than most of your competitors. (See McGaffin’s post for longer descriptions, as well as additional list topics.)
