If you think your website is working for you- and you don’t have RSS, some form of live interaction (commenting) with your customers, and a way to update your site at will- you need to take the Blogosopher course and wake up.
Using a blog content management system like WordPress to manage your site is the best way to optimize your site for search engines- and to make things happen.
Last month www.thenextwave.biz had 6,243 visitors. 370 of them spent between 30 minutes and an hour with us and another 326 spent over an hour. Thats 696 cold calls- can your sales force do that?
If you are looking at having someone “Optimize your site for Search engines”- think again- we had 1496 different key phrases used to reach our site. Thinking about buying search terms? Google delivered 75.1% of the links to our site- while Yahoo only delivered 8.7% and MSN another 6%. That could be a function of how well WordPress notifies Google- or it could be that people use Google a lot more than other search tools when looking for sites about advertising.
Have you spent a lot of time designing your home page? Don’t- unless it’s WordPress- our conventional entry page: www.thenextwave.biz/tnw had 1279 enrtries, and our news section- run by WordPress: 16,613 with another 3,503 coming in through RSS.
