So you have your website ready. All your systems are in place, your content, landing pages and squeeze pages, payment gateways, delivery systems and newsletters lined up….You’re primed. You’re ready to go.

Rankings definitely affect the number of visitors to any website. How many times have you looked beyond the first two or three (if that) pages of search results?
