St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
The recession has sent buyers into hiding, and local businesses are being forced to look at new ways to get back in front of them. An upcoming seminar titled “Creating Your Killer 2012 SEO Strategy” hopes to make that happen by bringing WhereIsMyBusiness.com Internet Marketing expert Will Hanke and local business executives together for a one-day workshop in St. Louis.
The event, sponsored by Where Is My Business (WhereIsMyBusiness.com), focuses entirely on helping business owners in the Saint Louis area make their websites more search-engine friendly. The “friendlier” their websites are, the better they rank in the major search engines like Google – which leads to more customers in 2012.
“Business owners today have to be on the first page of Google,” comments Will Hanke, a search engine optimization expert from St Louis, MO. “A simple website won’t do – you need traffic. Since 89% of searchers don’t go past page one, it’s imperative to be on that first page of results. We’ll show our attendees how to get there.”
This isn’t the first time Hanke has put on a seminar like this. Since 2004 he has been helping local business owners optimize their way to the top of Google, Yahoo! and Bing. He teaches monthly SEO classes on everything from analytics to Places, Google’s local business and map system.
“These seminars are interactive and hands-on. Many small business owners bring their laptops and have improved their website before they even leave that evening,” says Hanke.
There are less than 20 tickets remaining.
