Google has thrown a spanner in the works for the average internet marketing specialist; so we’ve had to search through our toolbox to find: the root of this alteration, how this will grow to affect companies like us, and how we can combat this issue so that we and similar businesses continue to flourish.
When building a website it is important to use the right words with SEO. It is vital you use word that users would search for. For example don’t use “Peak of Everest” Use “What is the height of Everest?” because people will type that. On the other hand doing things like having your content in plain text not just PDF and Include business hours and services will have a good impact.

This question seems quite easy to answer, word of mouth is by far the strongest form of advertising surely. After all you have a happy customer sending a qualified customer who is in the market for your products and services straight to your door at no cost to you. People telling people about your great service has to win hands down right? Well yes but without internet presence that reflects your standard of service or without information that is key to a customer making a decision to buy, or if you can't be found via a Google search easily word of mouth can be useless. I mean there can't be that many "Smith and Son's" around can there?
Many laymen hear the phrase "Search Engine Optimisation" or "SEO" and they think Computer hocus pocus jargon! and think anyone who understands the term or can get a website to appear on google must be some kind of nerdy wizard with a digital brain. This of course isn't true, anyone can achieve results from small simple actions. It's like changing the oil in a car, you probably didn't know how until someone told you, but once you knew, you realise you could have probably figured that out for yourself.
The owners of Yellow pages used to turn over Billions now they are in massive debt & struggling (see this article from the telegraph) Why has a household name with such market dominance found it's self in so much trouble? Well in short the story goes like this.... back in 2002 when the general public where starting to get to grips with the internet the google maps listings used to be provided by Yell and link back to businesses on Yell.com. Yell were having significant success through yell.com and 10's of millions of visitors via Google every month, in their opinion the paper based directory would never die and they where to be kings of the internet, this isn't quite how it happened.
