A lot of people are making money from SEO hand over fist. You too can become part of the SEO boom if you know how to take advantage of this online marketing strategy.
SEO is an acronym that stands for search engine optimization. It takes advantage of how people find content on the web.

Here’s a fun activity if you get your television through services with a lot of channels like www.direct2tv.com/directv-channel-guide.html. Find something current, go to like ABC and watch an episode of Last Resort or maybe Lost if you can find a rerun. Now, try to find something from the late 80s early 90s.
Aside from the egregious portrayals of race and even chauvinism, you’ll notice something else – these shows were poorly written. And yet somehow they managed to endure for so long, many of them hanging around for 8 or 9 seasons.
So what changed?
Simple, really, the standards for television were improved and that all trickled down the quality of the writing. Lost is a prime example of this, setting the bar pretty high when it comes to writing for TV and few shows since have even come close to attaining that level of quality.
What actually caused this shift in the quality?
Well, that’s a tough question. In most circles it is believed that, writing in television never really changed so abruptly but rather evolved into the quality we have come to expect today. As television became less of a diversion and more of a way of life for some people, it was only a matter of time before the bar was raised.
And don’t get me wrong. There’s still a lot of garbage on TV (2 Broke Girls, The Neighbors, Work It), but the general trend for writing in the TV world seems to be improving and, with so many people watching, that’s a good thing.Read More
