Internet Marketing Strategies and Drupal Tips
Here is an excellent strategy to improve your ranking in Google, Yahoo and Bing, the top 3 search engines. I recently wrote this article while writing a proposal for a prospect. They asked Seascape Web Design to help them improve their search engine rankings and to increase traffic to their Drupal website.

1. Preliminary report to determine where you rank for specific keywords is included in this proposal. We perform tests to determine how many sites link back to you. These are called backlinks or link popularity. We also test how many of your website pages are indexed by the top 3 search engines, Google, Yahoo, Bing.
At the end of every article you get to add your information - your name and business name including a link to your website. This personal closing encourages readers to click on the link to visit your website to learn more about you and your business.
