I’ve said it before. SEO is a Scam: http://journik.posterous.com/tag/seo and again, differently. Home page optimization is a scam too. Here’s why.

Google doesn’t care about your site just like you don’t care about how much your dentist brags about his steady hands. Google, like you, only cares about what others say.

Here’s a tiny caveat for the thousands of SEO guys who will doubtless sending me hate mail, again. Optimizing your home page or landing page is only useful if you’re on page two and just need a tiny boost to get to page one. But that’s something you can do yourself. Just make the first words in your title tag, description tag, and body use your key words. That’s it. No need to repeat.

What you can do, on your home page is to offer motivation to link (via Google SEO Link Building Strategies NYC LA San Diego) to you. There are 73 ways to do this.

I recently started a marketplace that is similar to ebay and amazon, but with many unique features they dont have. We used google adwords to attract users to our site and it did pretty well. We tried individuals and companies but seem to always get burned. We need someone who is an expert to get us on top. I can describe the website in more details if needed. Thanks for your time.
