|Whisenhunt Communications Helps Pinnacle Holdings with SEO Web Writing
Whisenhunt Communications has moved into a new and
fast-growing area of technical media work: SEO Web writing and Internet
SEO stands for "search engine optimization," a rapidly
growing form of Internet marketing. This requires specialty writing using
certain "keywords," or special words and phrases, for a search engine such as
Google or Yahoo to recognize, with the goal of winning a higher placement on a
search list from the search engine. The ultimate goal is to drive increased
traffic to your Web site.
Typically, the earlier or higher up a Web site appears in
the search results list, the more visitors that site will receive from the
search engine. SEO may target different kinds of searches, and this gives a Web
site better Web presence. As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how
search engines work and what people search for.
