I have always had it in my mind that if you want your site to do well you need to rank well in go0gle. End of story I recently changed my outlook, and with a new site that I launched i marketed it exclusively thru facebook. And wow, what a difference! Not only am I getting fantastic results, but it is instant and so easy! I am getting over 200+ hits a day on a site that is only 4 days old. I only spent maybe 2 hours doing facebook "marketing" for a much better result than if I was trying to get it to rank in go0gle All the hours of backlinks and optimization on other sites seem like a real waste of time.
