And I couldn’t be more excited! Well… I’m also excited that the hub website, goes between #3 and 4 – not to shabby to have two websites in the top 5!

“How did you do that?” many people have asked.  Here’s what I think…

1.  Consistent content that speaks to the industry and keywords – art licensing

2.  Social proof that the content is good, by others linking to it. (thank you!)

3. Good SEO habits.  SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization – there are things you can do to increase your chances of moving to page 1 of Google – or your search engine of choice. (Yahoo, Bing, DogPile, etc.)  If you have a website, that should always be a goal.  When people search, they often look at options on page 1 & 2, rarely on p. 20…

So what are good SEO habits and how can you get them?

A few that I employ are adding tags to blog posts, keywords to website pages, titles that make sense and sometimes include keywords.  The most important thing to do is create good content of course.
