The other day I picked up an excellent (and more importantly, updated) book on search engine optimization (SEO) that gave great examples of how to maximize the usage of key words and phrases without overdoing it, how to write better META descriptions and key words, and how to write more persuasive articles to lead to better conversion rate optimization (CRO).
Needless to say, once I went through the first two chapters and saw the example website that was successfully converted from a nothing website into one of the top websites in its category, I was inspired. I went straight to my Intruder Prevention website and spent the next two days working hard on the new SEO techniques.

Okay, it’s time to move on to the next project in my quest to have a six-figure income through websites and affiliate marketing.
So far I’ve been researching ways to develop Internet traffic through natural ways such as Yahoo and Google search engines, blogging software, and direct links. My sites are slowly improving in traffic flow, but it’s going to take a while at this rate.
So last night I was going through my Google Adsense account and seeing how the advertisements were doing.
Overall, my page impressions (advertisements that were actually displayed to website visitors) were fairly high for what I usually see. This past week alone I picked up a strong link for one of my sites and saw a great boost in traffic.
As great as the increase in traffic and exposure was, it sure wasn’t reflected that way in Google Adsense.
