    Matt …a very good article for any newbie to SEO (or solid reminders for those of us who’ve been around for a while).

    One instant reaction I had to the article was to think “hold it a sec, how about we start with how many small biz CEOs KNOW what SEO is, much less view it a priority or not.’.

    There are still tons of businesses who don’t even have a site and many that do have a site don’t know what it means to optimize it.

    Just a thought.

    Hi Geoff,

    Great point! In fact i wrote much of this point to an SMB owner and friend that didn’t know where to start with SEO. All he knew was he wanted to have a higher visibility in the search engines. I’m hoping this article is useful to those that know they need it, but don’t know where to start.
