At one time or another, almost everyone involved in advertising products and services online will use Google AdWords for pay per click advertising. One of the things Google will do to determine where and when your paid ads are placed - and even how much you will be charged for your ad is something called your "Quality Score" and this quality score has everything to do with Google SEO. Watch this video lecture to learn more.  

Using Google AdWords - Why SEO Is Important for SEM

Publishing articles that you write online can have several benefits to you. First, it gains you recognition and exposure as a writer. Then, as your articles get distributed and posted by news and other agencies online, it gets you back links to your web and/or blog site. As people read your articles, they may even contact you to do some contract work for them as well. Lastly and not to be forgotten, you can use your written articles as a springboard to writing a book or E-book. This gives you even more back links, further improves your credibility as an author and provides you with another revenue source online.
