    Hi guys my name is Brooks, I am new here and really need some help. I just launched last week my new website http://www.tailoredtransactions.com . I am the president of Tailored Transactions LLC and I am really wanting to find the quickest and most proficient way to boost the ranking of my website and get it the most exposure.

    My industry is very competitive and I really need to move it up the ranks quickly. I have read through some of your posts about back links, PPC ect. Simply put I just know what will work best for me.

    Can you all please help me out with some expert advice as to what you think I should do? Again I just launched it about 10 days ago and I need to find the quickest way to move it up in ranking and also get it exposure to those merchants who are searching for setting up a merchant account.

    ALL ADVICE IS MORE THAN WELCOME... THANK YOU AHEAD OF TIME!!!

    My first impression from looking at your product offering is that you are playing in the major league so I suppose you really need some serious advertising campaign going.

    Anyway, since I'm also starting with SEO, I'd say that you probably need to create several landing pages that are keyword optimized and deep-linked to detail pages in your site. Ideally, these should be tied to your overall campaign and the image you are trying to project. Then, try driving traffic to those landing pages.

    Okay so I know this a dumb question so please bare with me, but what exactly is a landing page and how is it different than a normal page on my website??

    Is it just a single page that I advertize on and that has a link to my website itself? I'm sorry I know my questions are dumb its just that I don't have a very good understanding of SEO techniques and what I need to be doing.

    As far as playing in the big leagues that is the truth. My industry is saturated on the web and I just want to do any and everything to make a presence as fast as possible.

    Brooks, write a few articles about your industry (not your business) and get them posted on ezinearticles.com and goarticles.com as well as set up some blogs on all the blogger pages with links back to your website.

    You'll get traffic and back links.

    Make the articles totally unique and at least 450 words.

    You can start with this - mashable.com/2007/08/06/free-blog-hosts

    Also, you should start a blog on your site... blog.yoursitename.com and update that on a regular basis. By regular I mean daily. I have a blog on my business opportunity site and you wouldn't believe the traffic I get from the search engines.

    Bizops are as competitive as your niche.

    A landing page is just a single page with a very specific message much like a few second spot on TV. But what makes the landing page different is that it has stopping power and the capability to drive your target audience to act a certain way.

    One way to actually get a feel of what landing pages are like is to go to sites which pay you to click on webpages like gagabux.com and neobux.com. If you don't sign-up for an account, you can actually see all the landing pages including those shown to premium members. The best landing pages I've seen are those that are shorter with short messages and tag lines.

    Anyway, I'll PM you the link to a full-length book on landing pages.
