How to Optimize Your Website to Get More Traffic: Post #9 of Freelance Writer's Technology Month

Freelance Writer's Technology Month is winding down. There will be two more posts after today's entry. I've learned a lot and I've tried to pass it all on to you in this series.

To that end, today's topic is How to Optimize Your Website to Get More Traffic. A boring topic, perhaps. BUT, if you're serious about makingmoney online as a freelance wwriter, it's one you need to know at least the basics about.

I'm not a techie and I'm comfortable with that. HOWEVER, I've learned in my research that if I want to create passive online income, SEO is something that I must know about. What I discovered is that you don't have to be a techie to incorporate some basic SEO into your online marketing efforts -- basics that generate more traffic for your website (exactly what you need to increase your online income).

This article outlines 7 basic search engine optimization things you can do to increase your web traffic (the emphasis is on "basic!").

Good luck!
