  13. 13. Know Your Audience<br />Search Engine Optimisation is not about Google.<br />SEO, is about people. <br />To attract more traffic to your website you need to know who you’re speaking to and how they communicate. <br />There are systems of value other than, or in addition to, money, that are very important to people: connecting with other people, creating an online identity, expressing oneself- and not least, garnering other people’s attention.<br />
