All language that appears in your website as text or static images will be:
-- corrected for spelling and grammatical errors
-- corrected for misused words and phrases
-- improved in sentence structure for clarity
-- arranged in stronger and more logical paragraphs
-- trimmed of passive text that dilutes your message
-- edited using HTML for clearer presentation
-- optimized for search engine performance
Success on the web is a three step process:
Step 1: Bring the potential customer to your site through proper promotion
Step 2: Encourage the visitor to use the site, by offering straightforward navigation
Step 3: Make the sale using the quality of your website content
Your desire is to maximize the number of people who make it through each step, to generate the most possible business contacts.
Keyword loading is not nearly enough. More and more these days, search engines are relying upon the actual text content of web pages to determine their indexing. That means that your position with the search engines is heavily dependent upon the nature and the formatting of the language contained in your site's pages. Your site will be submitted to all major engines the right way, by hand with carefully crafted text, with automated submissions to thousands of other sites.
With so many websites to surf and so little time to do so, many internet surfers will quickly abandon sites that look complicated, time-consuming, or unlikely to contain the content they came for. It is very important that the words used to outline the navigation of the site make the structure and content of your site IMMEDIATELY clear. You have about twenty seconds to make the right impression. Impress upon your visitor that you have the content they want.
Getting a visitor to browse your site is worth nothing if your web copy does not give the appearance of that of a legitimate professional business. Weak content leads to weak response.
