Search Engine Visibility is not about merely obtaining top positions in search results. Rather, Search Engine Visibility is about designing, writing and creating a web site primarily for your site's visitors, and helping them find what they are searching via the major search engines, directories, and industry related sites. Most web developers/designers build a site first and worry about "searchability" later, which is a costly mistake. Companies spend thousands of dollars on a site that (a) the search engines are unable to index and (b) directory editors tend to reject. This book teaches developers/designers, programmers, and online marketers about what pitfalls to avoid from the beginning so they can provide their clients with more effective site designs. Topics covered in this book include: how to write search-engine friendly sales copy, search-engine friendly design solutions, how to increase your web site's popularity, solutions for dynamic web sites, what types of search services are available (search engines and directories), and submission guidelines. The web site will include a working model of the web site designed in the book so readers can see and implement the techniques on their own.
