How can I get to that number one spot...easy, you need to be good with SEO (Search Engine Optimization? If you accomplish that this means more traffic for you? What is SEO? It is defined as: "Short for search engine optimization, the process of increasing the amount of visitors to a Web site by ranking high in the search results of a search engine. The higher a Web site ranks in the results of a search, the greater the chance that that site will be visited by a user. It is common practice for Internet users to not click through pages and pages of search results, so where a site ranks in a search is essential for directing more traffic toward the site.

SEO helps to ensure that a site is accessible to a search engine and improves the chances that the site will be found by the search engine."

Here is one important aspect of SEO, one that should be part of your strategy.

Link Popularity, Adding content and meta tags all working together is what gives you good positioning in search engines. The first thing that is looked at by a search engine would be the Link Popularity.
