I am on the road in a small country town in South Georgia named Vidailia...the sweet onion city of the south (down here for my uncle's wedding). When we checked into the hotel I soon discovered that they had free wi-fi access (yes I was truly excited by the discovery). After we got checked in and settled and attended the wedding rehersal I rushed in to get on the laptop.
So I powered up the laptop and rushed to click on the Firefox icon that would take me to the net I was so eagerly awaiting. As Mozilla launched I found it interesting to observe that the default home page within the hotel's system was...ta da...Google.
That's right the big G had struck again. Google is the mackdaddy of search engines folks. Reports on Wall Street last week had the stock selling for $299 per share! Compare that to similar internet sites such as E-bay (roughly $25 per share) and you can immediately see the value of what Google has to offer - the ability for your business to have maximum exposure for those who look for websites within your business category.
As a small business owner attempting to establish a powerful web presence on the internet you have to face the fact that you can't do it all by yourself. Google is a great, great tool to help. From general search engine submissions, to Google AdSense, to Froogle, to pay per click, to the upcoming online payment solutions Google has it all.
Tomorrow we'll begin to go in depth and explain how Google AdSense can add money to your smal business bank account with little to no work on your part.
