    I have built my own wordpress sites and have been using the internet to market products for more than 10 years - I am excellent at proof reading, and can use HTML in my wordpress sites to enhance the way it looks. I learnt to program in BASIC at school - and have used computers ever since. I did a college course in Excel to also enhance my skills. I believe Kindle will be a major player in the future of e-books and I am willing to proof read any book before converting to Kindle. I also have used powerpoint to make slideshows, and also used camtasia studio to convert into a video and upload to youtube.com

In addition to making your website more search engine friendly, we may recommend adding unique quality content to your site, improving usability, navigation and the design of your website. KEYWORD RESEARCH: The first step to implementing a successful SEO campaign is performing keyword research.

They use a complex algorithm to determine your website’s topical relevance and trust factor. A key indicator to Google of a website’s value is that other sites are linking to it. The amount, quality and topical relevance of the websites that link to you, as well as the text they use in those links (anchor text), are a heavily weighted indicator that Google uses to determine the value of your website and what it is about. Link building can involve many different techniques, a few of which include content distribution and syndication, press release optimization, directory submissions, content exchanges, contacting webmasters and influential bloggers, widget creation, social bookmarking, creating link-worthy content, link bait, video distribution, viral video creation, widget creation, badge creation… and we could keep going. REPORTING: Once optimization is complete, I run reports again every 30 days to check on the progress of your Website – you will be updated on these monthly ranking report results via e-mail..
