Let's be honest, when we think about being successful online, Search Engines come to mind and having your website indexed high enough in these Search Engines is your main focus.
Beware, solely concentrating on search engine marketing alone may very well keep you from getting ahead online.
Let me explain, so much time may be spent in just one area which in this case is search engine marketing, that some tend to lose focus on the main objective, your customers.
Waiting for Search Engines to index a new website may be a timely process and there is never a guarantee that you will place well at all. No Indexing, No Website Traffic.
