Building and optimizing your static, dynamic and/or e-commerce website around search engines for organic search results is key to bringing you the targeted web traffic you desire without having to pay big dollars every month in advertising. Search engine optimization is a tool that allows small businesses to compete against larger businesses on the web. SEO also helps to drive traffic/sales without having to pay for clicks (like Paid Search). This is probably the most appealing aspect of SEO to the smaller companies, the fact that they can bring in traffic and sales without having to "pay" for it (this is somewhat relative of course, time does have a cost associated with it). And you can get it for FREE! If you have a website that you think could benefit from search engine optimization, you definitely have to check out this resource.
