Submission of an article(s) (optional but very recommended)
As part of our comprehensive approach to SEO we developed a content rich site -
repository and source of insurance/retirement related articles. We will promote
aggressively that site to ensure it's high rank in search engines. That site will
point to our client's sites to provide the relevant outside links.
We encourage agents to do their own contributions i.e. articles on insurance/retirement/personal
finance topics. Each article will contain a link to your web site thus increasing
the link count.
Make sure to include in content of those articles the keywords you tune your site
to be searchable by!
Again why is it so important?
Our ultimate goal is to make that site Google rank 5 or 6. We will invest money
and effort to promote that site and each link from the site will count toward improving
your site's ranking.
Also we plan to release a number of other sites like that each with the opportunity
for our customers to link from them. We are also looking for content.
We want to emphasize that the bulk of work for this level of SEO product is for
our agent customers to do. Nevertheless we give important links to the web sites
and moreover allow them to configure the articles to contain the keywords they want
for visitors to find their site by.
