We can help you increase traffic to your site

There are only two ways to get traffic online; ATTRACT IT (using SEO), or BUY IT (using PPC). Both have the same objective; to drive traffic to your website!

What's the difference between SEO and PPC?

Search Engine optimization (SEO) is a process performed on website pages and off-site properties such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Squidoo, etc. Your web pages and images are fine-tuned and reformatted so that they appeal to the methodology search engines use to determine a site's 'value' for a given topic. In other words, SEO makes your site stand out from competitors in the same niche.

"Pay-Per-Click" (PPC) is a clever method of advertising where you pay only when someone searches using your precise keywords and clicks on your ad. As an example, you have a plumbing company in Kalispell Montana and you chose the keyword phrase, "plumber, kalispell". The only time your ad will appear in search results is when someone searches using those exact keywords or phrases. If they click your ad, you pay the price you bid for those keywords or phrases (i.e. $0.05 - $1.00 per click or more).

SEO is forever!

Once SEO is executed on your site, it continues to work for you virtually forever. Webunet has been involved in search engine optimization for over 10 years and has a proven track record.  A properly optimized website can attract hundreds or even thousands of visitors daily with no ongoing costs. However, it takes time to see results from an SEO project; sometimes as long as a few months, but the results can last indefinitely.

Pay-Per-Click (PPC) is a highly focused advertising program where the only costs you incur are when someone clicks on your ad.  Better still, you can choose to advertise only in a specific geographic areas such as a 20 mi. radius of Whitefish, Montana.  PPC is the ONLY type of advertising that can put your ad in front of a ready-to-buy shopper at the exact moment they are ready to make a purchase. A pay-per-click campaign returns immediate results because you are paying to display your ad during keyword searches. Combining both programs offers the best ROI delivering immediate results and long-term benefits.

Webunet's Credentials

SEO & Social Media Marketing Guide by Tom HeatheringtonThese days it seems that everyone you meet is a “Social Media or SEO expert”. It’s an easy claim to make because there are really no accredited qualifications required and anyone can declare themselves an “instant expert”. The Webunet Group however, has been involved in Internet marketing since the early 90s with a focus on SEO and all things social for the past five years.

  Actually you could say we wrote the books on these topics. In 1998 Macmillan published “The Complete Small Business Internet Guide” and the “SEO & Social Media Marketing” was published in 2010. We ‘get it’ and using our expertise to promote this directory is one of our primary objectives.

Don't buy this book!

Actually it is no longer for sale because so much has changed in the two years since it was published, and I haven't updated it yet.
