Search Engine Marketing

Here is a question that we are often asked "How will being a member of a Virtual Art Community improve my Internet visibility and my individual web sites page ranking within the "Major Search Engines ?"

Why search engine marketing is so important today

When someone queries a search engine for a keyword related to you individually, art discipline, art category, products/services, or demographics related keywords to Art. Are you being found within a five minute time frame, from the results listings, or does your competition proceed you"?

If you're listed in the major search engines, but not found within this time frame, you lose, no matter how many search engines that list you.

Below are a few facts which should leave you in no doubt that search engine marketing should form an integral part of every web promotion strategy.

85% of Internet users find websites through search engines.

90% of Internet users do not go past the top 30 search engine results. They simply type something else in if they can't find a relevant site.

75% of Internet users have the intention of purchasing a product or service when using search engines.

At this point I will focus on the above comment "90% of Internet users do not go past the top 30 search engine results. They simply type something else in if they can't find a relevant site."

When you are considering joining a Virtual Directory or On Line Directory submit a keyword query, pertinent to your business or service category and demographic to see if the site is listed within the
top 30 listings
. This will then give you a bench mark to know if that site is found within the 1 minute to 5 minute time frame. Thus giving quicker access to the viewer and providing you accelerated  and expanded visibility.
