I did a post on my blog that is relevant to people interested in this discussion. Here’s a part of it…
Every year for at least 20 years now more money has been spent online in every business category than the year before as people worldwide turn to the Internet for their wants, needs and interests. Consider these eye-opening research facts:
61% of global Internet users research products online. (source: Interconnected World: Shopping and Personal Finance, 2012)
44% of online shoppers begin by using a search engine. (Interconnected World: Shopping and Personal Finance, 2012)
60% of all organic clicks go to the top three organic search results. (MarketingSherpa, February 2007)
75% of users never scroll past the first page of search results. (MarketShareHitsLink.com, October 2010)

These are the core reasons why almost all online businesses seek effective search engine optimization for their websites, yet struggle to achieve meaningful results.
If you learn how to achieve it, consistently high rankings for the right keywords will steadily drive large numbers of interested visitors to your website or those of your clients every month. And if you play it right, you can also build a “herd”, as The Millionaire Maker Dan Kennedy calls it, of loyal repeat customers from this quality traffic.
An information overload of SEO tools and courses have come out lately, all claiming to teach how to search engine optimize for 2013 effectively – or even swearing to do it all for you work-free. How can we identify a genuinely top quality SEO system out of the sea of posers before us? Read the rest of this article to find out here: http://bit.ly/SEOsst1
