Listen, your competitors have spent enough time at the top of Google. You deserve that traffic. And the only way there is by optimizing your website so the search engines love it.

It has been said that 99 percent of Internet Searchers look at the first result on Google, Yahoo! and Bing. If your website is listed first, guess who gets all that traffic? YOU!

Pay-per-click advertising can cost a bundle, and drain your bank account quickly.

Not every small business owner has the time or focus during the day to get this done. So I've come up with this video tutorial series that will help improve your WordPress website - in your own time and at your own pace.

I've broken this training down into 20+ easy to follow videos. Each video will show you step-by-step how to optimize your site for the best search engine rankings possible.

Who is the target audience?
  • Small business owners
  • Bloggers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Marketing staff
