Blogging is vital for any internet marketer. It gives you a base for your potential customers to get to know you and your business better. You can build your website or blog with blogger or WordPress but WordPress is preferred for business purposes. One framework I highly recommend for you to build your wordpress on is Genesis theme framework.
Genesis empowers you to quickly and easily build incredible websites with WordPress. Whether you’re a novice or advanced developer, Genesis provides the secure and search-engine-optimized foundation that takes WordPress to places you never thought it could go.
Genesis runs on parent-child themes concept. A child theme is an extension of a theme framework which is comprised of typical theme elements. Genesis is the parent theme. With the click of a button you can change the feel and look of your site.

If you are an internet marketer, then you know that it is very important to host your sites with a great web hosting company. And if you are a newbie (newcomer to internet marketing), then it becomes very vital to host your site with a web host that will give you fewer or no hassles at all. One host I highly recommend is Hostgator. Hostgator hosting services are extremely reliable and their customer support is awesome. In this review I’m going to share with you why Hostgator has become number one web host, not just on my list but also with most internet marketers.
What is great about Hostgator hosting services
Hostgator offers all the standard hosting services that other hosting companies does, including shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS and dedicated hosting services. Now what makes Hostgator to stand out?
I started my first website with one web hosting company but when I encountered a problem with my site, they did not respond immediately and when they did, they did not address the problem with the site. My sister now recommended Hostgator to me. When I switched over to hostgator, not only did they transfer my site for free, they fixed the problem immediately. This was before the initial company responded to my email!
Other key points of Hostgator’s success
Hostgator gives a 45 day money back guarantee and boasts of 99.9% uptime guarantee, which is rare with many hosting companies. But Hostgator has managed to maintain their advertised uptime. Since I started hosting my sites with them I have never experienced any downtime.
Hostgator offers unlimited domain hosting, unlimited bandwidth and disk storage. That means you can host all your websites in just a single web hosting with Hostgator. Isn’t this awesome!
You also get unlimited MySQL database with Hostgator unlike other hosting companies that will only allow you to have certain number of MySQL database.

It’s often said that Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the most complex marketing strategy to master. However this marketing strategy is now becoming easier, so you don’t have to pay professionals too much money to optimise your website(s).
When understood and done properly, SEO can get your site on the very 1st page of Google, when people search on your specific keywords and drive massive traffic into your business. Who wouldn’t want that?
Let me share with you the 3 primary steps to get your blog ranked higher on Google:
STEP 1: Create Quality Content
A blog without valuable content is useless. Your goal should be to create the best content consistently, so that your blog can stand out and start generating some traffic.
You also need to pay attention to the following factors in order to make Google happy and send you enough traffic:
STEP 2: Create Quality Inbound Links
It’s important that you generate a good number of links from quality, authoritative sites in order to attract more traffic to your blog.
Side Note: Don’t start driving links until your blog is getting some traffic. That would be a giveaway that something dodgy is going on. It wouldn’t make sense for a site that’s not generating any traffic to have thousands of inbound links, would it?
