Search Engine Optimization = Cyber Snake Oil

A fool and his money are soon parted.” Thomas Tusser quotes (English Farmer and Writer. 1524-1580)

Snake oil salesmen out in cyberspace guaranteeing your web site will come up at the top of the google search results if you just pay them!   Beware small business owner looking to generate more traffic for a few dollars.  There really is no quick fix, one time submission or a magic url.  Just relevant content that is useful and accurate to the consumer looking to purchase your product or service.  Want to advertise effectively and stay under budget?  Try Google Adwords, keep your site up to date and relevant.
