SEO  is  the  most  important  form  of  website  promotion  and  internet  marketing.  PERIOD.  That  said,  please watch out for companies that GUARANTEE results. In our experience, it is simply not possible  to  guarantee  results.  We  can’t  predict  how  many  people  will  visit,  how  they  will  click,  etc.  What  we  do is an EXTENSIVE amount of research into the current search engine optimization trends and build  out  sites  according  to  what  has  been  proven  to  work.  http://cimmeronstudios.com/category/seo­ studio  

THE SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING GLOSSARY  http://www.seobook.com/glossary/  I get asked lots of questions about what does this mean. I also get lots of comments requesting an  SEO glossary. So I decided to create this page.   I  think  our  personal  experiences  make  everyone  biased,  but  the  bias  in  any  of  the  following  definitions  is  my  own  (or  at  least  one  which  matches  my  own  if  I  borrowed  a  definition  from  another  source...like  the  Wikipedia),  thus  if  there  are  any  faults  in  the  following  definitions  those  faults are my own. There was no group think hidden agenda applied to this page, and any bias in it  should be a known bias ‐ mine. :) Here is a list of some of my known flaws and biases in my world  view.
