  13. 13.   Southeast Marina Market, LLC           12  Why   Be   First   on   Google".   Everyone   wants   to   be   number   one,   or   at   least   on   the   first   page.   There   are   even  some  SEO  firms  out  there  that  guarantee  front-­‐page  positions.  How  do  they  do  it?        The   first   way   is   to   pay   for   Google   Ad   words.   You   select   the   major   keywords   or   phrases   and   bid   up   how   much  you  will  pay  when  someone  uses  them  in  a  Google  search,  and  how  much  you  will  pay  if  someone  clicks  on  your   link.   This   wasnt   too   expensive   in   the   old   days,   when   there   wasnt   much   competition   for   key  words/phrases.  However,  it  can  become  quite  expensive  now  with  some  key  phrases  costing  $10.00  and  up  per  click.        The   second   ploy   is   to   pick   obscure,   long   key   phrases,   something   that   no   one   else   would   use   to   optimize   their  website.   So   when   you   type   in   the   obscure   phrase,   your   website   will   probably   come   up   first   on   the   Google  search  because  no  other  website  uses  the  phrase.  But  we  don’t  take  chances!!!  We  will  utilize  all  the  Google  tools,  interactive  maps,  address  from  here  to  there,  and  location  pins  on  your  website.      We   apply   all   of   our   knowledge   about   search   engine   optimization,   Internet   marketing   and   how   to   design   your  website  to  get  maximum  traffic  and  exposure.
