ExecutiveBiz and the Greater Washington Board of Trade
Seminar: Does Google Think You’re Sexy? Increasing traffic to your website
Date: Thursday, November 3, 2005; 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM
Location: Capital Hilton, Washington, DC
Cost: $40 for members, $60 for non-members
Description: ExecutiveBiz is teaming up with the Greater
Washington Board of Trade for its first event in downtown DC, a panel
presentation on Google natural search best practices. Google is the number one
search engine, and is one of the primary ways that Internet users will
find your web site. Unfortunately, many web sites do poorly in the
Google rankings or do not appear at all because of poor or non-existent
Google optimization. Submitting to your web site URL to Google is only
part of the challenge of Google natural search result positioning. Google
optimization means ensuring that your web pages are accessible and
focused in ways that help improve the chances they will appear in result
sets. Results of Google optimization include an increase in traffic to
your web site, a lowered cost of customer acquisition, and increased brand exposure.
