Keywords and Keyword Phrases Find Your Website
Keywords and keyword phrases are what your website needs for users, to not only find your company by name – but also be found for your products & services, and your location — and most of all — make your website stand out from your competition in the internet search results!
There is not much doubt that people can likely find your company by name in an Internet search — however, that’s no better than an electronic telephone book. If users searching can’t find your website and information, what was the purpose in spending all that money and effort?

Designing Websites with a SEO Focus
Search Engine Optimization Helps Get a Website to the Top of the Results!
It is much better and less costly to search engine optimize your web pages before they are made!
Search engine optimization should be the basis of your website design and construction — much the same as an architect’s drawing providing a solid plan and guide to the builder.
Can an existing website be search engine optimized? Yes. While worthwhile, in many cases it well may take a lot more time and effort to remodel than to rebuild. In fact, certain aspects need to be monitored and fine-tuned to get the best results.
Results are never guaranteed or constant because the benchmark criteria are constantly changing. Armed with an analysis of your competition’s position, and search optimizing your website, your website will very likely be out in front — and once you are ahead, your website gains search engine credibility and your continuing improvement and upfront position will be much harder for your competition to displace.
