Optimizing Your Web Presence For Inbound Traffic In A Post-SEO World
SEO! You name it and instantly feel frustrated and overwhelmed with one of the most controversial and misinterpreted concepts of being online successfully.
What is really SEO?
How does it work and does it really work today?
Asking the right questions will get you on the path to finding the right answers.
First and foremost, let’s remark something crucial that many VR owners do not seem to fully grasp:
4 Routes To Owning Your Website
There are several platforms allowing you to have a website of your own property quite fast:
- You can go the developer route and hire a professional to do the job for you.
- You can work together with industry specific platforms like Webchalet, MyVR or Lodgify.
- You can go the fully independent route, take everything in your hands and do the site yourself without having to be a developer, thanks to the tools available online these days.
- You can go Route 1, then have your developer teach you how to manage the site by yourself (my favorite).
Each route has his pros and cons that you need to evaluate to find what’s the best for you and there is a pretty informative article written by Tyann Marcink for those of you who want to investigate things further.
On the path to independence, I consider being fully in control of every single aspect of your own website without depending on a third party, a pretty fundamental step, and in doing so I’ve been embracing WordPress for several years as a self taught entrepreneur.
WordPress allows full control – something I like -, while not too much of a steep learning curve to understand how it works. I’ve actually trained fellow owners to manage their own website entirely by themselves so they can be as free as I am.
WordPress is the most widely used platform in the world allowing anyone to mold their own website the way they want. Currently, more than 1 out of 5 websites in the world is on WordPress and the numbers keep growing.
But How About SEO?
How do I make sure my site ranks well, so I get found?
How do I get traffic to my site?
After all, I understand how the most beautiful website in the world is useless if nobody finds out about it, right?
At the Summit we’re going to dig deeper into these key aspects of your quest for independence.
