Resources for search engine savvy!
Our seminar “Web Smarts: Search Engine Strategies” held earlier this month was a smash success, with a lively and packed house and lots of follow-up discussion. Many thanks to all our Web Smarts participants, and especially to Brian Kleber and all the stellar staff at the Bloomington Small Business Development Center!

We’ve posted a new resource page on our site to augment the class. This page is one-stop shopping for everything you need to improve your site’s ranking in search engines. Topics include keywords, link building, pay-per-click resources, selecting search engines, tracking your search engine results, Internet statistics sites, and resources for finding search engine optimization professionals.

This resource page complements our existing pages on Web Marketing and Search Engine Submission Links. We’ve also added Web & Search Engine Resource Pages to our site in order to organize these Web resources and will continue to update all these pages as additional information becomes available.
