From the outset of your business start up, get a good web host.

While a good web host won't make your business better, a bad one will make it worse.

You don't want down time or poor support.

Many webhosts are crummy at support.

Get a web host that grows with you, has excellent support, and allows you to build your online business without obstacles.

Building your email subscriber list is the most important thing you can do for your online business.

I’m going to give you — literally — 101 tips on building a responsive email marketing list.

That is to say, I will help you build a list of ready, willing, and able prospects!

How does that sound?

Tip #1 — Build Your Own Business

While there is a lot to be said for getting to the top of the search engines and advertising to promote your business, there’s nothing like having your own list.

A list is something that you control at all times.

You control:

Its size
Your relationship with members
How much money you make
By having a list, you are building your business on solid ground.

That’s not to say that search engine traffic isn’t wonderful and you should quit advertising. However, developing a list of leads or customers can be worth much more to you in the long run when combined with both of those methods of driving traffic.

Can you list all (on page SEO and off page SEO) factors in short?

No.

The longer answer is this: If you're specifically referring to how a site ranks in Google, then consider this.

Google has over 500 factors in their search ranking algorithm, and besides a select few at Google, nobody knows ALL of them.

Couple that with the number of changes they make to their search algo (some say over 500 a year)...and then add this...

Even if you did know all of the SEO factors, you wouldn't know the weightings.

So, what I think you're really asking is this:

What should I do when trying to maximize my search results for a given keyword phrase?

Am I right?

First things first.

On Page
--Know what you want to rank for. What specific keyword phrase (KWP) do you want THIS post to rank for? How about your site? What KWPs?
--Publish excellent content. Stuff that people want to consume. Fill a need. Over-deliver. 10x your competition.
--Write awesome titles.
--Write a compelling meta description (your only chance, besides the title, of getting a searcher on Google to click YOUR link on the search engine results page (aka SERP)).
--Insert images where it makes sense. Use ALT tags and good filenames.
--Use heading tags appropriately.
--Call out important words and phrases in bold, italics, colors. Use different sizes.
--People like bullets!
--Write naturally, like a person is reading this, not some search engine bot.
--Make sure your permalinks have your KWP.
--Link out to relevant sites. Remember, at the end of it all, Google wants to supply its users with the best content possible. If you help them do that, they will help you.
--Load speed matters, especially now that more traffic feeds through mobile devices than desktop PCs. Use only those plugins you need, use optimized themes, and shrink down image sizes as much as possible.

Traffic
--Google rewards traffic. Much like the popular guy in school that everybody listens to, even though he may know jack, Google rewards those sites that get a lot of traffic.
--I know it seems backwards: You want to rank high in Google so that you get more traffic.
--But you need traffic to get ranked higher.
--Buy traffic. Yes, use Facebook Ads (best) and Google Adwords. Maybe try Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
--You just need an influx of quality visitors that like what you publish. Again, create content that is so good your visitors would crawl naked over broken glass to get.
--Guest post on influential bloggers' sites. You'll get direct traffic without paying for it in dollars.
--Post on Medium, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube. Direct traffic is gold.
--Share and post on relevant forums.
--Add your site URL to your email signature.
--Mail to your list! You have a mailing list, right?

Social Signals
--Share your content on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Quora :)
--Share on Reddit, StumbleUpon, Pinterest, and Google+.
--Make it easy for visitors to share your content (social sharing buttons on your posts).

Backlinks
--Backlinks still matter. They are online votes that Google counts in their search algo. They probably will always be a factor.
--You want links from relevant sources. If you're a dog training site, it makes no sense to seek out backlinks from gardening supply stores.
--You want links from quality sources. Given the option, you'd rather have a link from Breaking News, Daily News and Videos - CNN.com than from http://EdsPartyPool.com (those are silly examples).
--Use a variety of anchor text (like "click here", "get this", post title, KWP).
--Not only do those backlinks count as votes, boosting your site in the eyes of the almighty Google, but they can (and will) get you direct traffic. Remember, direct traffic is king.
--This is why guest posting and posting on third-party sites like Medium and World’s Largest Professional Network is a great way to get backlinks AND direct traffic.

Hope this helps.

Fresh meats and cheeses, great sandwiches! UPDATE: Sadly, this deli has closed. The food was awesome, the people were nice, but it was never run well (long delays in serving food and the owners did no marketing). Too bad. I really liked this place.

I'm going to make this an overall review with a note on my most recent experience there at the end... My family and I *generally* love this pizza. We like it because it's organic, we can get gluten-free dough, etc. The service is okay. Sometimes we think that management has no clue and it shows in the efforts of the employees. I guess bottom-line, the service is what diminishes this pizza restaurant from being really good to just so-so. We will continue to eat there but with trepidation. We never really know what we're going to get. Take tonight for example. I ordered on the phone for pickup. When we got there, the pizza wasn't ready. When it did come out of the oven, it was not what I had ordered. The cashier who took the order and performed the transaction did nothing other than take our pizza back and cook another...no apology, no sincerity, no concern for our having to wait 20-30 more minutes---not even an offer for a free drink to pass the time. Nothing. When you make a mistake in the service industry, it is standard to 1. give a heart-felt apology and 2. do *something* to show your appreciation of your customer and demonstrate that you will make things right if you can. Oh, and the pizza tonight was horrible: It was burnt underneath yet soggy in the middle, extremely greasy, and cold by the time I got it home. I'm not really sure how they pulled that off...

Dr James Sievers treats you in the least invasive way possible for your given situation. He doesn't set you up for multiple repeat visits, either, unlike 99 percent of the other chiropractors I've used in the past. Plus, he thoroughly baselines your health before starting any treatment so that he can objectively measure progress.

I've been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. I first started frequenting El Tapatio when I lived a few blocks away, having just graduated from college and working in the area. I've since returned to eat there once a month. The food is awesome and the staff is even better than the food. They're great people. Of course, the food at a restaurant has to be good or else I wouldn't return. But it is the friendly, courteous, professional staff that makes all the difference. I highly recommend El Tapatio. It's one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area.

Dr Sedberry helped us understand the unique needs of our oldest child. She treated all of us with respect and was very patient, professional, and helpful. The good news was that there was nothing "wrong" with our son, yet she gave us some best practices and creative ideas to help us all work together. Our experience with Dr Sedberry was incredible. My wife and I would recommend her without any hesitation to parents with similar circumstances as ours.
