A good first step to search engine optimization is installing Google Analytics. This will allow you to monitor your website traffic and gain insights into your website visitors as well as your website’s performance on Google. If you don’t already have Google Analytics installed on your web pages, you should go ahead and install it now. If you need help installing Google Analytics, please contact me.

Creating a personal and business profile on LinkedIN is an easy and important connection in building your online presence. Claiming 50 million professionals worldwide, there is probably someone there looking for your unique talents, products or interested in interviewing your for a potential job.

LinkedIN profiles seem to rank well with Google search results. If someone is looking for you, chances are your LinkedIN profile will get top billing.

One caveat of using LinkedIN is you cannot be contacted directly unless you are already in an individual’s network. For example, if someone found my LinkedIN profile on Google and wanted to contact me, they would have to either upgrade to a premium account or add me to their network (send a request) before we could communicate directly via LinkedIN. However if you list a personal or company website in your LinkedIN profile, this link is public and you can be contacted through your website.

If you have questions about setting up a LinkedIN profile or personal or business website, please leave a comment below or contact me directly.
