Online Marketing Strategy #7: You Don’t Have To Be An SEO Expert To Rank On GoogleWell, it certainly helps improve organic search ranking if you know a bit about search engine optimization — but I read an interesting blog post today that contains some good, common sense advice that anyone can follow to make a content-rich website that speaks to the things your customers want to know about.

  • Look at your competitors
  • Focus on your social relationships
