Let’s take a quick look again at the 4 step process for creating success online:
In this section of How To’s, I aim to cover a series of topics related to blogging and search engine optimization (SEO) techniques.
Setting up your website is just the initial step. In the days and months following that, your activities should be focused on getting rankings on the main search engines and social media (namely Google, Yahoo, Bing and Facebook) to drive traffic to your site.
The “How To” of that will be to be creating quality content for your pages and blog posts as well as making it search engine friendly.
The reason why you want rankings in the search engines is simple:
Website Rankings + Targeted Traffic = Revenue!
So if you have set up your website, you are probably wondering “How To” go about doing step C and the D – Creating Quality Content and Driving Targeted Traffic to your website.
This is probably the most crucial part of your website building process. So you need to remember this:

So if you picture your website as your house or a building with many different rooms, your site content will represent the appropriate furnishing and fixtures that go towards filling up the rooms to make them complete so that visitors will be attracted to come and visit. The more they like the experience of their first visit, the longer they are likely to hang around and the more likely that they will be visiting again.
Just as Rome wasn’t built in a day, and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel wasn’t built in a week, building a website will require a bit of time. The process of setting up a website is just laying down a strong foundation before starting to build a skyscraper, to be followed by furnishing it and getting it ready for awesome traffic.
I hope that you will continue to drop by and visit this site to check out the new “How To” content being published.
