I've never heard this before.

I know when you pick up a template you do want to make sure there are no hidden links in the code (usually in the footer). Other than that I've never heard of having a problem with a template.

Not sure if you have tried to do a Squidoo Lens or not yet, but I have gotten really great exposure from it as well as sales, especially recently. I have used (all three of my signatures) but the first one is really great and will help you with this very thing.

As far as the ranks... like I said I do pretty well with my lenses and also Weebley.com and FreeWebs.... as well as blogging on blogger or wordpress, but whatever you do, make sure you update often and ping your URLs!

Hope this helps! Good luck with your business! I just love gift baskets! :D

This used to be true, but it is ancient advice. Many of us now create our sites in a content management program now and no longer do traditional hmtl sites at all. Hasn't hurt the big guru's at all. ;)

Sorry, I know nothing about PPC. I've never tried it because I don't know enough about it and I know you can lose your butt if you don't know what you are doing.

As long as you use keywords in your title and meta tags, page name, headers and content, you should be okay with any web page. Then you simply want to build traffic to it.

You must analysis all sector for your product. From keyword, link building, market for your product, budget, and design of the site. Because internet marketing is not easy like we think.

I am not really sure about this, but I think templated sites are more crawlable in the spiders side of view, this makes it more optimisation ready as well. But I am not a 100%.

This is actually the firs time I saw someone ask a question like these. Nice question.

What do you mean by templated site? Are you talking about a template you purchase or get free with open source and modify? Or, are you talking about a ready-built affiliate site?

As long as you have control of page names and meta tags, you're in pretty good shape. And you should certainly create an XML Sitemap to "feed" your site to search engines.

Visit this Squidoo blog for more information about that. http://www.squidoo.com/improvewebtraffic

In addition to coffee's post, taking the time to compose a well-written SEO press release can do wonders for your internet marketing strategy. When you combine a newsworthy topic with search engine optimized writing, and publish it to the right press release submission sites, you're making great strides toward earning one of top spots in the search engines. If you're having a hard time coming up with one, you can draw the inspiration from those that work.

My advice would be not to limit yourself to just ppc because firstly you have to design your webpages with seo in mind and then pay for your clicks there are tons of different ways you can market your site online for free without having to worry about seo and maybe finding a coach or mentor who can show you how and where to market online would be a great starting point.

Enquiro conducted a study of Internet surfers that showed most eyeballs went to the Sponsored Listing above the organic listings, then down to the top three listings. Only 20% of those tested looked at the lowest items of the 10 organic results.

However, those eyeballs looked at the top 4 listings in the side bar of PPC ads. 50% for item 1 and down to 20% for item 4.

When it came to clicking on the page, 22% of surfers clicked on a PPC ad according to comscore.com. Of the remaining 78%, the largest portion clicked on an organic listing while others went on to page 2 and 3 of the search results.

Another study conducted by an Internet marketer found a person who clicked on his PPC ad, read the information on his page, then returned to the search engine listings. In the organic listing, the person clicked back to the exact same page he'd just read after clicking the PPC link. The second time, the person made the purchase. So, in this instance, did the organic listing fortify the PPC listing?

The bottom line is that SEO is required. And isn't it funny that companies spend 85% of their budget on PPC and only 15% on SEO?

Of course backlinks to your site is extremely important, and that they come from a variety of sources over a period of time. Directory submissions, article marketing, forum sigs, 2 way links (esp with high PR sites) one way links from high quality sites (ie. advertising), are some great ways to get these all important back links to your site.

Another thing Google likes to see is a link TO Google. For instance an RSS Feed, Google Blog search link, google toolbar. All these can make your site useful to the user, and pleases Google immensely.
