James Pennington impressed 180 people when he spoke at the Search Engine Strategies 1-day forum at A4U Expo, the affiliate marketing conference and exhibition on the 26th October. James shared how four companies from the West Midlands have spent nothing implementing basic search engine optimisation to gain new business from all over the world.
The 4 case studies were:
* DAW Consulting (www.dawconsulting.co.uk)
* Adaptawear (www.adaptawear.co.uk)
* Perilla (www.perilla.co.uk)
* Pizzazz (www.pizzazz-retail.co.uk)
The formula for success was the same across all four companies who followed our advice, whilst working on their websites in their own time without spending any money. The secret steps each company took were:
* Optimised page titles for every page on the website
* Created good quality content and updated content on a regular basis
* Created a link strategy
The optimisation has resulted in:
* Improved organic rankings for targeted keywords
* New business from all over the UK and abroad
* Increased traffic and ability to react to customers
* Greater presence of their company on the Internet

The conference was very well attended and we met people from all the main search engine companies.
The conference covered a wide range of SEO topics, from writing good content for your website to video search engine optimisation. One of the hot topics in the US was duplicate content issues, especially content that has been stolen from another website.
If Google thinks you've been stealing content it can have a negative effect on your ranking. You can be kicked out of Google completely! Although, we were told that the search engines are smart enough to figure out which was the original content. But if that doesn't work you can submit a form to Google telling them that another website has stolen your content. If you follow the procedure and if Google agrees with you they may take the offending website out of their database. For more information have a look at - http://www.google.com/dmca.html and http://www.copyright.gov
