Page ranking by search engines such as Google are not only overrated but unusually explained by ?experts? in the SEO field. SEO stands for search engine optimization and is needed to get your website placed at the top of a web search. I have no truck with someone wanting to get their pages placed in the number one or two spot from a search, but page ranking has nothing to do with that whatsoever and I can assure the reader that I can prove this to anyone with a computer.

In other words, we shouldn?t judge people or products by their appearance. But this isn?t true in America. We do judge books by their cover ? in fact we spend billions of dollars on products that have prettier ?covers.?
Are You Driving Away Potential Customers?
When a prospect lands on your website will he or she understand what you are presenting? Do your ordering/sign up instructions make sense? Can prospects easily find the information they are searching for? If you don?t know the answers to these questions you may be driving away potential customers.
