Hi Joe,

That is a very good question, and one we get asked often. I have put together a few tips that you might find useful, as well as some links to very helpful tutorials on SEO.

1) Add your site to as many search engine listings as you can find. We have an excellent tutorial on how to get your site indexed by the search engines: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

2) Add meta tags (keywords) to your website. These keywords are added to the Page Properties of your site. With the right kind of research, and the right kind of keywords, when people search for those keywords your site will come up in the results. Adding keywords is quite a tricky and time-consuming process, and it's something you need to keep refining. Here's a great tutorial about how to get started: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

3) Join social networking sites, such as Facebook, and get a Twitter account. These are extremely popular ways to communicate and network. Take a look at this tutorial for some tips: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

If you are a Yola Silver user, you get Google AdSense and Facebook advertising credits to get you going. If you are not a Yola Silver subscriber, take a look at this FAQ for more information: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

Some additional things that could also be helpful:

4) Put your website address on all your business stationary, for example: letterheads, invoices, delivery slips, envelopes, parcel packaging, business cards. Make a point of networking, and attending functions where you can hand out your card.

5) Promote your website by adding it to your email signature on both business and personal emails.

I hope this helps!
