Threaded View
Hi All,
        I have a new company/product and have recently gotten my website up
(  It is my first website, and my first webstore.  I
learned enough before starting to make sure that my pages were static, but
otherwise, I know absolutely nothing about how to get it to show up on the
search engines.  My site is totally invisible right now.

        Should I hire one of the seeming thousands of SEM companies to do
this for me?  How do I choose a reputable one?


        Can I do an effective job of this myself (without hiring someone
else)?  If so, what's a good way to learn what I need to know so I can get
going quickly?

        Thanks to anyone that can provide so pointers.

- Max

Depends - if you are bright, you can DIY ;) If the site is new you have
several months before it will be visible, so there is plenty of time to
learn SEO, work on the site and collect links. There are many tutorials
on the net - like

I think I have also seen very good tutorial from Aaron Wall, but I can't
locate URL right now. I think it was not on seobook, but on his other site.
