    Take a look at this movie..

    I just received a PM from a guy here at BHW, a really good SEO´er. He asked me for advice. His site was top ranked for a highly competitive kw phrase but he made almost no money from it.


    He just couldn´t figure out why and he told me he needed a fresh pair of eyes to look at it.

    I went to the site and I was shocked. He had written the site beautifully in the eyes of Google but for humans, it was more or less crap due to the kw density and bad text quality.

    It´s easy to forget that the written word is the most powerful tool an IM´er possess.

    Traffic is worth nothing in itself, converting visitors are.

    This is the reason why I spend most of my budget on content now a days.

    As a foreigner, I know my English grammar is not perfect so I rather hire really good journalists to write appealing selling texts for me.

    If you are a beginner in IM, don´t forget this important lesson and if you are more experienced, make sure you keep it in the back of your head all the time.

    SEO is not difficult - the hard part is not to sacrifice the quality of the site and texts while doing it.

    Over and out :)
